Maybe I’m wrong, but treasury seems outside of a business analyst role, so I’m not sure this applies. For the analyst program, think conceptually easy-medium difficulty cases with a fair both of arithmetic. I think everyone gets at least one card case, so it’s worth brushing up on the economics of credit cards (interchange, interest, risk/exposure). There’s usually an interview where the whole conversation is centered on how to improve a product, so being in that mindset is helpful - it’s not difficult, but don’t think you can laugh it off or punt it

For mine yes it was two cases and a product improvement question. They give u a product and u get to pick one to assess. My product was the Kylie lip kit - I’m pretty sure I got good feedback for that since it was novel and not something expected like in tech, etc. the product they gave me was drones.

Two cases and a product interview. The case interviews are long and math based but not particularly hard . I got all of the math right and did well in the product interview but still didn’t get an offer. They interview a ridiculous amount of people every Thursday and only take 1 person. It’s very tough.

They give you pretty good prep material and there is also a good amount online. Make sure to know break even analysis and basic algebra / graphs

They should allow us to submit 0s for the barometer. 1/5 still means I’m still 20% satisfied...

Can you legally start a new job during your two week notice period? I won’t be on a project and would be ok if they asked me to just leave right away. But want to offer the two weeks as courtesy.

Does a 9-5 culture truly exist? I see my friends at VP level in industry bring home work as well. Not sure is those are one off situations ... Is it dependent on the company rather than role/level ?
