    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process was rather quick and easy. I first took a math test, a week later a phone screening, then two days later a round robin. I received my offer the next day. Everyone was super nice and the office is beautiful. I felt terrible turning this down as it was a great experience, but salary wise they are below market value and I had other offers.
