about to start my SA stint with Cowen. My superday was not very technical at all, I was mostly asked about interest in the coverage group I was interviewing for along with industry specific valuation methodologies

Has anyone else received an email to schedule a second interview?

Jun 10, 2020

yes, I have a second round next week. Any advice/know what to expect? Behavioral..or more technicals this round?

went through the process last year. made it to superday but didn't get an offer. got asked standard technicals (probably a little easier than first round, but that could've just been my particular interviewers). a few brainteasers as well. probably 15 min of techs/brainteasers and 15 min of behaviorals that just turned into a conversation

Recruiting is in process and timing is based on each target school's deadline. Having a specific preference for office and/or group is valued.

What's your source on this? I just had my second round a few days ago...is it really possible to not extend superdays for another 3-4 weeks?

Heard the Detroit office might be the best for focusing on pure M&A, that team closes a ton of MM deals each year, mostly industrials

NY takes the most and then the other offices take considerably less, but I'm not sure about a solid number.

If your interviewer didn't mention that they were passing you on does that mean you got cut?

Praying for today

Jun 29, 2020

Been 2 weeks since 2nd round interview. Are they just pushing back superdays? Has anyone reached out to HR?

Jun 29, 2020

nice username. also bump

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jun 29, 2020

it took them 2 weeks to get to me between my first and second round interview, so I don't think it's unusual that we haven't heard back yet

Still think they're going to provide us with an update. It's hard leaving candidates in the dark while other recruiting processes are going on.

Jul 2, 2020

their first round of superdays that late? the second round was so long ago

Jul 1, 2020

Will there be another wave at NY office?

path less traveled

Jul 5, 2020

Not sure how many of you this applies to, but Cowen Detroit (Birmingham) has already had first and second rounds, as well as at least one Superday.

just curious does anyone know how cowen's summer/first year analyst comp is? do they pay street?

  • Analyst 1 in IB-M&A
Jul 15, 2020

FT is street. No signing or relocation bonus.

Jul 17, 2020

Just heard back from HR saying they're contacting more people in August.

Jul 18, 2020

August??? For superdays or for first rounds

Jul 23, 2020

More first rounds. I think they already did a whole wave of offers though.

Jul 24, 2020

Anyone know about the recruiting timeline for the SF office?

  • Intern in CorpFin
Jul 24, 2020

Some Cowen superdays happened over the last week and will occur this coming week. Will be continued superdays through August until all spots are filled. Process seems pretty unstructured and handled more on a rolling basis. Wouldn't read that much into our HR being unresponsive / lag between interviews, except that our HR team is mediocre lol. Had to chase them on a few very good candidates myself. Good luck!

Source: I work at Cowen and have been helping with recruitment.

I had a first round of very gentle technicals almost two weeks ago, but I haven't heard anything from HR since then... followed up a few days ago. Has anyone else had a first round and just not heard anything since? Should I continue networking with people in the meantime?

  • Intern in IB - Gen

i'm in the same spot. Going to continue to network and hopefully it'll pan out for us
