How did you come across Baird?


2. Analyst Interview

Process Description

I applied for the summer internship via my university's career website. Baird came to campus along with many other banks and interviewed me 1 on 1. They also posted the contact information for a few analysts in case we wanted to reach out before our interview dates. Unfortunately, I did not reach out or network and I believe this cost me the offer.

Robert W. Baird & Co. Sample Interview Question:

Walk me through the three types of business valuation in detail. I described the DCF model, trading multiples and precedent transactions valuation techniques.


3. Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

There were a 1 on 1 phone interview and the superday. Most of them were basic questions, such as background check, "why" questions and some basic technical questions. The first-round phone interview lasted for 35 minutes.

Example of Interview Question at Robert W. Baird & Co.:

Why not BB? Why do you want to work in middle market? Why do you want to work in Chicago but not New York?


4. Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Process Description

Had phone interview with a Vice President and then had a final round in the office. Everyone I met was very friendly and easy to talk to. Final round consisted of interviews with Analysts, Associates, VPs, and MDs. Technical questions mixed with fit questions, although the majority were fit questions. The technical questions were fairly easy.

Robert W. Baird & Co. Interview Question Example:

How do you value a publicly traded REIT? The technical questions on the interview were fairly easy, this probably being the more difficult.


5. Associate Interview

Another associate interviewed. Know everything on resume. They want to know why sell-side equity research? Why Baird? Know your stock pitch really well.

Nothing unexpected. Standard questions about why equity research? Why sellside? What do you know about Baird? Do you know what the job is? Stock pitch.
