The number you see in the middle of the doughnut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few interview insights). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

Recruiter

Less than 1 month

Phone Interview
Interview
I reached out to a recruiter directly on LinkedIn. They then reached out back to me directly a few months later when they were hiring an Intern, and the entire process was quite informal. There was a basic CV screen, followed up by 2 interviews by Associates in M&A
Interview Questions
Since the position was a Cross Border (DealGlobe specialises in Cross Border China - Europe, mostly UK, buy and sell side advisory), half of one interview was conducted in Mandarin Chinese, with a Chinese associate.
In addition, there were questions surrounding both M&A and sell side and buy side processes, in addition to a plethora of accounting (e.g. classic increase of 10 in depreciation) and valuation questions (run me through a DCF, main valuation techniques). There were very few competency or motivational questions.

Interview Questions
I'm not adverse to pitching anything, in fact, you're probably better off pitching somthing slightly different than mainstream. With mainstream you need to do the same thing better than everyone else, with different, you're already identified as not the same, creative picks are neccessary. Rather than a single company, I enjoy pitching a strategy, something topical, re: pair trades or similar. That my dear boy, depends entirely on the analyst. What do they value? What do they write about? It might be difficult to glean much about their model from reading a few reports, but if you get some of their initiation reports, you ought to be able to figure out atleast part of their thought process, thereby hopefully giving you some insights as to what they will ask.
