    Top management are helpful if you are introduced via top personnel
    Top management make good managers


    Don't call unless its an emergency
    Middle management level managers are not very knowledgeable
    The work you do doesn't really mean you are actually enhancing your career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management should not encourage micromanagement.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AllianceBernstein.

    Interview Details

    Initially met representatives for AllianceBernstein through on campus recruiting at a career fair. Attended their information session and ultimately applied. I was invited to a first round interview on campus. Typical behavioral interview. Lots of "Tell me a time when..." questions. "Tell me a time when you worked on a team? A time with a difficult team member and how you managed." "Tell me a time when you worked under someone. What would that boss say was a strength and a weakness?" Ended with a roll play of a phone call with an angry client who's online account was not accurately reflecting their total balance. The interviewer played the client and I pretended to pick up the phone at AllianceBernstein.
