I use the OSI model as a mental construct for troubleshooting every day (and I think coyo7e is trolling you). That said, I don't think a CEO is going to ask you nitty gritty tech questions. He probably wants to know who you are, what you can do, if you're worth the money and if you'll make a good impression on his clients. This is a good thread for interviewers: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=2000929

Same here. I use the OSI model all the time as my troubleshooting method.

I know a few past and present QL bankers. Generally seems to be a lot of pressure, a lot of stress, and a lot of hours. What's it like on the software side?


Why'd you leave?

Didn't like Michigan. Well, rather the wife didn't like it. I liked it enough.

I actually really enjoyed working there and the people. They underpay, but the benefits are pretty darn good.

Technology side is your typical agile software development shop. If you can deal with the same corporate waterfall bs at every company but attempted to be shoved into an agile flavored package, you'll be good. The stress usually comes closer to big product launches (Rocket Mortgage, etc) but for the most part everyone works in sprints like you'd see at most software development shops.
