Background Check
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
During the summer I interned for a boutique IB firm in NY. One of the senior MD's at the firm really liked me, and he referred me to the CEO of ISI Group (Ed Hyman), who is his personal friend. They invited me to come to NYC for the interview, which was essentially a superday already. I interviewed with 8 people (30min each), from their 4 business divisions (ER, Trading, Sales and AM). First of all, their offices look incredible. The ER section was really calm and comforting, while the trading floor was insanely intense. ER is definitely their core business, and they are viewed as one of the best resources on the street. Ed Hyman was rank #1 institutional incestor on Wall Street 34 years in a row, and counting. The interview process itself was less rigorous than I anticipated, not to many tricky questions. Mostly behavioral. This happened a few weeks back, I'm still waiting to hear back. Honestly, I think I nailed it.
