Economic Consultant Interview

Economic Consultant
London, England (UK)

The process took a day - interviewed at FTI Consulting in September 2011.

Interview Details – Started off with numerical and verbal reasoning, no calculator allowed. Followed by a group exercise/ role play where you analyse a case study and suggest solutions for the client. The company tend to look for economic analysis and some calculation, similar to project management. Knowledge in Corporate Finance could help.

Forensic and Litigation Consulting Analyst
San Francisco, CA

The process took a day - interviewed at FTI Consulting in September 2009.

Interview Details – 1st Round
1. Case: You have 3 communications groups: Big-box, mid-size, black market. How would each of
the groups be affected if a new law passes that penalizes groups that conduct in unbusiness-like
practices. This law penalizes any company that breaks the agreement signed by the big box and
mid size companies, but not the black market. How does this affect market share? How does
this affect sales? How would you measure the change in share, and capture of the market. Draw
a graph of the change in market size that you believe will happen.
2. You are given an excel spreadsheet, and the interviewer asks you to go through line item by line

Director - Restructuring Interview

Director - Restructuring
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7 months - interviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2011.

Interview Details – FTI is good at restructuring work. I spent 6 months following up with the Managing Directors, at their request, once per week or so that were initally respectful. Don't waste your time as I was told we're "3 1/2 years from needing someone." Understanding you won't interview Friday and start Monday, why are you wasting time talking to folks when you say multiple times we'll need people over the next month, and then after a face to face you come back with this. Are you kidding me! What a joke and utter waste of time!

Interview Questions

  • Generic case... Here's a client situations and the challenges around it. Please come back with your recommendations.   Answer Question
  • We travel out on travel the first of the month and back the 21st. Why would you want to do this it's a horrible life.   View Answer
