Advice to Candidates

As an analyst here you will do a substantial amount of desktop publishing work/administrative duties (e.g., resizing tables in powerpoints, printing documents for associates and vp's who seem to have forgotten that they have dedicated administrative assitants, re-sorting and re-cutting data, etc.) This type of work is very frustrating.
