IB Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in January 2014.
Interview Details Applied online, followed up with cold calling and a phone pitch. Did three phone interviews that were mostly technical and IB related. The big surprise was in the AC- No technical questions but you get stretched with the business case and the other activities. Time management is key and you get evaluated against people with you in the AC.
