They had diversity scheduled for April and are likely pushing that back, aka regular recruiting will be pushed back (according to Analysts and Associates)

Can confirm, I am diversity and they said my interview would be late April to early May for 2021. However, I can imagine that this is being revised bc of the virus.

I can speak with confidence when I say that the first wave of applications will be reviewed within 2.5 weeks with first round interviews mid-april onwards and a superday in early may. All virtual.

How was the online assessment for you?

Mar 31, 2020

Honestly, I applied to 4 locations so I got 4 emails for the assessment. So I choose Houston the least desirable location for me and give it a practice go. In brief, I don't think it went amazing because I thought I would have 3 other assessments to really try on LMAO. Other than that, it's like an email game where you prioritize responses. Identifying sequences (2, 4, blank, 8) multiple choice. One other SAT like style of questioning that I forget, and then a bunch of qualitative questions.

any info if the US offices (especially NY) sponsor Canadians ?

Mar 25, 2020

I think it's always a bigger struggle when they have to sponsor your H1B, but if you give them a reason I'm sure they'd have no problem. Purely speculating though.

Does anyone know if pressing the view/edit submission button for the internship (under My Submissions in my CS careers account) will affect the submission? I want to add an updated resume, but I don't want to have to resubmit the application because applications are reviewed on a rolling basis (I don't want to "lose my spot in line" in a sense). Is this even an accurate way of thinking?

Apr 8, 2020

I don't think CS does it on a rolling basis. Talked to a few Analysts and Associates and they all said that diversity is pushed from mid/late April to early/mid May and that non-diversity (OCR and non-core) would be through end of May/June. Wouldn't worry too much about adding an updated application so long as you don't resend the entire application.

False information. Have spoken with individuals at CS involved with recruiting. Originally, diversity was scheduled for late April but was postponed to early/mid May. Rest of recruiting will take place late May/early June, with superdays throughout early summer.

My belief is that they send everyone the links for the tests but a person I know is one of the people leading recruiting and he said they haven't started recruiting non diversity yet and that they will have multiple waves (3-4 waves).

Can confirm with certainty that no non-diversity first rounds have gone out. Expect first rounds to start in late June with superdays starting mid-July. All of this is in waves so you could still technically have a superday late in August

  • Analyst 1 in IB - Ind
May 29, 2020

Total class size for SF is like 7 people but it's kind of a non-factor. The issue is unless you go to specific schools you're basically recruiting for a minority of spots. Every year they hire 2 people from Berkeley, 2 from Ivey, and 2 more split between Wharton and UCLA, so if you're not from one of those 4 schools you're really only competing for one or two leftover spots.

I remember recruiting there and it was brutal to even find an in for networking because you're essentially relegated to only speaking with the one or two analysts not from those schools, because there's no way someone from Wharton is going to push your resume over the candidates from their school who they know will get a spot.

Historically, they have been a little weaker, but that's because it's a little smaller in size relative to its peers like BAML. In recent years they've done quite well though. CS was ranked #1 in 2019 real estate M&A league tables. Also, they do a lot of gaming deals (they advised on the eldorado caesars $17B merger)

first round interviews will be sent out on 15th June. informational calls are informal calls used to generally have a conversation where you can better understand the candidate and also learn more about the company. based on the informational calls, they'll send out first round interviews. if you haven't received informational calls then it's unlikely that you'll get a first round.

Maybe things have changed since I recruited at CS... but to my knowledge "informational calls" happen when students reach out to alumni at CS (or any other bank). The bank does not set these up themselves. Again, maybe things have changed but I got an offer from CS and got a first round after talking to 2 alumni

I think that there will be some calls being sent out in the next week as well so not really, but if by 15th June you don't have any calls and someone hasn't referred you already, I think it is highly unlikely that you get invited for an interview.

Didn't you get a first round for LatAm first-round?
