I've been a lurker on this forum for years and have gleaned some great advice from it--now I decided I would ask a question of my own. Sometime ago I applied to an Analyst position at Magellan Research Group through a school job board and they just reached out to me to schedule and interview. Does anyone know anything about this firm or what the position entails? The job posing doesn't provide a whole lot of clarity and the website provides even less. From the job posing:
Are you looking for an entrepreneurial firm that gives you exposure to all facets of the company? Afraid of being a cog in the wheel at a large corporation? Maybe you want to be able to control your own growth and compensation? Magellan Research Group is a fast growing financial services start up that is looking for young and driven candidates to help build their client service team. We act as a knowledge broker for decision makers within top hedge funds and private equity groups throughout their due diligence phase. Our service is an integral part in how our clients better understand companies and industries they research.
We are looking to hire young, bright, and driven professionals who can help manage our client relationships and drive revenue for the company. As a Research Analyst you will be on the front line of client communication and project management. Our Research Analysts work under the Project Manager and assist on every aspect of client requests from understanding the project itself to sourcing the industry experts. You will be engaging with C-level executives from Fortune 500 companies, and learning about business models from every industry and every region of the world.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
