      Good place to start and gain valuable work experience and learn a lot. Flexible work arrangements and work from home capability.


      Inefficient business model that's forever changing. New projects and initiatives are rolled out prematurely. Job security seems unstable with focus on transferring job responsibilities to India.

        It is a very good place to start your career as you get to learn and network with many other fresh grads. If you are willing to stay and do your time, you will surely be promoted to senior roles within your team. Managers and peers are nice people and nice to work with. Management is approachable. Company has good benefits and is looking to improve work/life balance for employees.


        Long hours coupled with low compensation = high turnover. When I worked at State Street, overtime was a common occurrence which lead to a very bad work/life balance as the hours were already weird enough, starting at 10am and having the day end at 7pm (supposedly).

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Principal Customer Success Manager

      Are case studies/presentations a normal part of interview processes? This is in addition to several interview rounds. These typically take 2 days to do, and require of anywhere from 6-15 slides worth of information, and require deep dives into company product portfolios, use cases, competitive advantages, application to fictitious customer scenario JUST to present. It's exhausting to have to do multiples of these and feels like free labor.

      im beating myself up. I had 3rd interview yesterday. I think all interviews went well, particularly my 2nd one. In this one (and now that I’m thinking about it, this also happened in my first one) I accidentally started answering a question before the interviewer finished the question. When I realized I did this, I immediately stopped and said “im sorry I interrupted you, please continue”. When this happened yesterday, the interviewer stopped to jot something down. Did I cost myself the job??

      I’ve gone through too many interviews now, with some being extremely promising until the 3rd-4th round and I get hit with an email stating: “We’re putting this position on hold to refocus on what we really need from the role” Or something similar. What is going on with these job postings and then freezing the hiring? I can’t be just a Q4 thing because I’ve gone through this over the summer with multiple interviews. Is it me? Or is the market really that right for everyone right now?
