I'm interviewing at Goldman. I'm at a mutual fund company, so we don't have the Analyst/Associate/VP/MD title structure. Our titles just describe your function, so things like Research Analyst, Trader, Portfolio Manager, etc.
Does anyone who works at Goldman know how the firm would approach what title they would give you in a situation like this? Is it just a one off negotiation or is there a standardized practice? Second, how much does title matter within the firm?
