    I worked at PIMCO (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An incredible learning experience for those willing to accept everything as an opportunity to improve.

    Cons

    The cons can be a huge deterrent to some people, but a key asset to some people. Namely, the company politics are extremely ingrained in the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Align the messaging to match the culture. In essence, don't profess to be one company but act like another.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PIMCO (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Standard 30 minute initial phone call with a recruiter. Even though we have started the interviewing process mid June, the recruiter wasn't able to connect me with 2 managers for further interviews. It took her 2 weeks to get back to me with a request to connect with those managers and another 2 weeks to only reschedule 4 times even though I was able to accommodate any date and time. At one point when I was confirming my availability I got an automated e-mail that she was out of the office. I didn't hear back until the day when the interview was supposed to be - only to find out we have to reschedule again. I have politely declined another attempt.

    PIMCO is a great company but unfortunately this process was more negative than positive.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through your resume, tell me more about your latest experience. She then picked specific skills from my resume (negotiation, cold calling and communication) and wanted to hear more about how I've developed them and a situation when the skills were applied.   Answer Question
