  • Please describe the interview / hiring process.: 
    1st round was on campus - the interviewer wanted me to lead the 30 allotted minutes (mainly to demonstrate interest for the role and fit) so I just talked about the company since I interned there (in a different part within a business) just 3 months prior to this interview, and bonded with her (she was a lawyer like my wife, she worked in tax and I had just wrote a paper on Apple's tax loophole/ghost subsidiaries, and she liked football and played fantasy football) and 30 minutes flew by. 2nd round aka Superday was on-site at Long Island City (Queens, NY). Candidates sat in the lobby and were scheduled for 3 30 minute interviews with MDs (mainly testing our leadership potential and passion for the industry/company). 75% of the questions revolved around leadership quality questions, while the other questions were to talk about the industry and company (Have you read our 10k? - tell me about). 1 high-level case question came up, but (surprisingly) not much on technicals in my specific interviews.
