    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Prospect Capital (United States)

    Interview

    The interview process is long and strange. There was no structure to it and I had the impression that it was improvised as it went on. I spoke to sixteen individuals over the course of three months. I finally said that it was enough and I needed a decision. I was then scheduled to speak with the CIO, Grier Eliasek. It took three weeks to schedule and he spoke to me for nearly three hours. It was an unpleasant conversation that lasted nearly three hours. He was insulting and clearly did not care about my time (nor his own?) and did not present Prospect as an environment in a positive light.

    I had the impression that most of the people disliked the organization but were holding back their opinions. There was a lot of coded language but I read between the lines and am glad I did not take the offer. I ended up speaking to one of my interviewers after I declined and was told that I made the right decision. His view of the company is it's being run into the ground. I also heard they have a 12-month non-compete. No thanks.
