Day in the Life: Rohit Kandimalla
Rohit Kandimalla had an “Aha!” moment as part of Prudential Capital Group’s 2014 Summer Analyst Intern Program when he discovered an error in a company’s financial statement.
“I brought the error to a team member and it ended up being just a misplaced decimal point,” Rohit noted, “but it made me realize the importance of the Analyst role.”
During his junior year at the University of Texas at Austin, Rohit interviewed with a number of Fortune 500 companies and investment banking, asset management and consulting firms before accepting an internship offer from Prudential Capital Group. His involvement in the Summer Analyst Intern Program convinced him that a position at Prudential Capital Group would check all the boxes of what he wanted out of his first, post-degree job. He happily accepted Prudential Capital Group’s offer at the end of the summer.
“I didn’t want to be pigeon-holed into a single industry or work on just one type of deal. Prudential Capital Group works with companies across a wide variety of industries and across the entire capital structure. I’m learning something new every day.”
He views his analyst role as observe and anticipate. “Whether I’m working on a deal or reviewing a company in the portfolio, chances are that I don’t know much about the industry or the company. Therefore, I’m learning while also anticipating what the team needs. And that’s the fun part – figuring it all out!”
Rohit is focused on making the most of his Prudential Capital Group experience.
“Being part of a small deal team means I get a surprising amount of responsibility,” Rohit said. “It’s important to see what is needed by the team, and be able to have it done before it becomes an issue.”
For Rohit, Prudential Capital Group’s work/life balance and collaborative and collegial atmosphere were key factors in his decision to accept the job in the Dallas office.
“My senior team members show great patience and make time to answer any and all questions. I’ve made important career connections, as well, at the Summer Analyst Intern Conference in Chicago in 2014, and at my first Analyst Conference in New York. There were about 100 of us there – analysts and senior leadership. It was awesome to network with colleagues from all over the country.”
