Junior Financial Analyst was asked...15 June 2014

If a client comes to you and say "I want to sell this hardware at 50% discount to my customers" which will result in negative gross profit margin and cashflow to IBM. You as a pricing analyst, what is your impression and what would you do? Would you agree? Why and why not?

2 Answers

ok

Be careful this is somewhat of a trick question. IBM reps and in some cases customers are very accustomed to discounts of 40-60% off ridiculously inflated list prices and cannot sell if they only get 20% off even if the net price is the same. At the same time, finance is king (development is queen) and negative GP is, in most cases not an option unless you get major approvals and it's a critical win. Less

I did not expect the interviewer (who is now my team leader) to spend so much of the interview talking about hobbies and interests.

After getting the job and talking with my team leader I now realise this was due to a) being too formal on my part and b) him wanting somebody that fits in to the team. Less
