I don’t see any description of the office noise level in here.
lol that interview is tomorrow. I hope I get both offers and then I can choose.
I think it’s also a little weird that I even got this interview. The recruiter mentioned they want to make a decision within a couple of weeks. Most of the analysts at the firm come from top schools, investment banking backgrounds, etc.
Somebody posted about this same position a couple of months ago. Sounds like a good position to me. If this is in LA, I know which employer it is. Good luck. http://www.analystforum.com/phorums/read.php?1,782040
Thanks for the link. I actually know what company this is and I know tranloi from the other thread. I’ll ask him.
Good luck Topher!
