Please describe the interview / hiring process.
Fairly straight-forward and casual interview process vs. Citadel & Surveyor. Process consists of a one-on-one conversation with their BusDev (internal recruiter), followed by more focused conversation with the PM and one or two other PM's in the office. At the initial stage, conversation was extremely high level, focused on prior research and coverage experience, some general thoughts about how your research process looks, and some probing to see how well you understand their investment style. At times this firm came across a bit lackadaisical (especially relative to Citadel), although this may have been a function of my personal lack of fit with the role. My sense is they are fairly risk-averse in hiring. If you have a couple years of Millennium, Citadel, P72 etc on your resume, and have experience covering the group they are hiring for, you stand a very good shot at advancing here.
