    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    lots of opportunities to gain exposure to various areas of finance, team managers are open to helping you through workshops and personal development sessions

    Cons

    senior executive team is bureaucratic, too much relationships, research and development and technological advances are not supported, prefers to do things the old fashioned way

    Advice to Management

    Unload the hierarchy, try to encourage research within the divisions to accomplish higher work efficiency, make sure teams actually work together rather than compete/hate on each other

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at OMERS (Princeton, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round campus interview with the two heads of the group. Next step is an interview in their office. The steps are not well defined as it is a new group. The first interview was about my background, theoretical questions such as assumptions of linear regressions, and an investment strategy.
