Associate Director, Business Development Interview

Associate Director, Business Development
Washington, DC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in December 2009.

Interview Details – Originally applied online after speaking to a friend of a friend who works in DC in their human resource department. Spoke to her about opportunities at the advisory board, and she told me to apply seeing that I had what it took to work there. Had a second interview to determine where I would fit in at the company. This recruiter determined that I was more qualified to be an external Associate Director. Two weeks later I interviewed again on the phone with a higher up recruiter. She did not seam personable at all; however, I know I did well on the interview as my first contact informed me I was to be asked to come to DC to do a final panel interview. For some reason they never returned my phone call, and when I did call after 2 weeks to determine what the next step was, no one ever answered or returned my phone calls.

I think the company is good for someone who is not really sure what they want to do in the Healthcare consulting industry. The company has a very young culture which I think is it's downfall. I am a financial MBA and this was a fallback, I found interviewers at major financial institutions much better than the three interviews at the Advisory Board.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in February 2009.

Interview Details – One phone interview with HR. 6 Managing Directors for the in office interview. If you can't convince them that you can speak with a hospital executive, don't bother.

Negotiation Details – Thre was no negotiation. 90000 salary, 10000 draw. The draw never goes away. 1st year in BI they suggest that the cash incentive can range from 10k-40k. Second year: 50k-100k with the best as high as 200k. After that ince3ntive pay can reach the high six figures.

Associate Director, Business Development Interview

Associate Director, Business Development

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in March 2011.

Interview Details – The process was quick from beginning to end, although I waited two weeks with absolutely no contact just to hear I did not receive an offer. I would have liked some contact during that time, especially after having left a thank you VM and email requesting next steps. Everyone was friendly, but if you don't fit the culture, don't bother. I met with 4 exec directors/managing directors and gave a presentation on materials they sent, which was pretty easy. It really was all about culture and convincing them I could achieve really difficult goals.
