    I worked at Stern Stewart (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SSCO has lots of very intelligent, knowledgeable and passionate employees. It is a great place to work for people who are intellectually curious and who care about their work. Not your typical investment banker types.
    I worked as an analyst at SSCO in NYC in the early 2000s (not 2013; the web site won't let me go further back than that for some reason).

    Cons

    I think sometimes the advice given to clients was based on a too narrow interpretation of the EVA way. This can lead to somewhat dissatisfying experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open-minded, not just so focused on a narrow interpretation of the EVA way. I think this will serve clients well, and the smart SSCO employees will flourish more too.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stern Stewart.

    Interview

    The recruiting process was divided into 3 parts -- the first is the CV screening, next two interviews with a senior consultant and later on with an associate. They basically evaluate your finance and accounting skills. Questions like 'how do you do a valuation of a firm?' or 'how do you estimate the cost of capital curve for a public-listed company?', etc. Finally, a business case presentation to the managing director and VPs.

    Interview Questions

    • The hardest part is the final interview, which is a business case presentation to the Managing Director and VPs. They ask you questions about the assumptions and criteria you used to do a firm valuation. You can expect any sort of finance, accounting and corporate governance question.   1 Answer
