    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Standard Life (Boston, MA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Overall seemed like a fairly bright team however they were preoccupied with extracting information about how much money I made, even after I explained as a matter of principle, I didn't disclose that information. This was off-putting.

    Great office in downtown Boston on one of the top floors of the tower on Beacon St.

    I passed on going back for the second round as I didn't connect with the culture of the group. The second round would have required a specific (full model) company analysis and presentation to the group, which should be expected for this type of role.
