||I've never heard a put-down pitch, but then I was never pitting one interviewer against another - I'd consider that "not cricket" so to speak. Maybe that's been detrimental to my pocket book... but still.
If I heard one, I'd be put off, for sure.
I think a company has to sell themselves, just as the prospect does. If they can't deliver, no amount of put downs will help. If they CAN deliver, why would they need to put others down?
I personally feel that it has to be a good match. My current position seems like a near perfect one (thanks TC) - and none of my interviewers would have considered put downs as ethical or moral, I'm sure.
These days, I'd seriously consider asking why they feel the need to bad-mouth the most excellent opportunities on the market. Of course, it might merely be the personality of the interviewer.
On a slight diversion: Google would look really good on the resume or CV. Some companies have a serious weight on the resume - and the best companies look for that kind of thing... finance is not impossible to break into. Thankfully.
