Just out of curiosity what kinda fund is it? Also is the comp more than banking? @msop

It's more comp yeah

Officially done!

Assuming you're IBD?

Good luck bro! Take me with you!!!

How difficult are HF interviews? Can you run through how yours was!? @msop

@MSOP out of curiosity what are the exit ops for IB product groups at MS?

I'm a girl not a bro @HSBC1 🙋

Sorry you go girl! Lol tell me abt the interview!

In my experience the hardest part was actually getting the interview. Most of the interview questions were fit oriented, though there were some more analytic questions in the beginning, as well as a few tests I had to take on site. I've heard that at funds about 10-20% of interviewees make it to the final round and then there's about a 50-50 shot of getting an offer. So yeah as long as you're a team player and willing to learn you're fine.

^thats for client facing roles. If you're trying to work on the research side/under a portfolio manager it's way less fit oriented and more analytic with insanely hard brain teasers and math problems. I only looked at quant shops though so I'm not sure what it's like at fundamental funds.

ALSO- be ready to restart as an analyst. I'm 24 and an associate but they don't give a shit haha

I heard you're taking me out to celebrate.

@MSOP are you ok with that/is that normal? How does that effect your comp?

Don't know why my entire team is frustrated at work life in PwC AC Kolkata. Is it because of any of the following?
1) The very late appraisal process in PwC AC Kolkata
2) Not much expectations from appraisal and bonus (based on experience of existing employees.)
3) Other big 4s are giving much better hikes compared to PwC.
4) Work timings and rewards are not commensurate.
5) Any other reason.
Please give your thoughts if similar is the situation in your team.
