Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Washington, DC

Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in March 2014.

Interview Details

First round consisted of a 30 minute phone interview. Questions were behavioral in nature and were fairly easy. Second round was at the corporate offices in Washington. Two interviews, both with cads studies. First was about operating a food truck business, second about a franchise opportunity. Also given a 90 minute written case study. After reading a case with a potential hospital merger, analyzed pros and cons of the acquisition.

Interview Questions
  • The questions were not health care related which was a little odd given the health care nature of the company.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Unfortunately, I can only speak about a phone interview as I was not invited to further interviews. I had applied through the company website and was contacted by e-mail about scheduling an interview about 2 weeks later.

    The phone interview itself was straight-forward. The interviewer asked me to "walk" her through my resume and also to describe my "research process." I think this is the formula for a lot of intro Advisory Board interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • Both questions -- see above -- can be fairly difficult because they are very open-ended and, given the interface -- a phone interview -- you may not get a "read" or "feel" on what the interviewer is thinking or seeking in an answer.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone interview through an internal referral. Pretty straightforward, know your resume well and be prepared to answer why you're interested in healthcare. A couple days later they called to tell me they wanted to fly me in for an in person interview. That was 3 one-on-one interviews, two included a case study. There was also a one-page written case with plenty of time to think and answer. None of the interviews require specific knowledge about healthcare, just clear and logical thinking. The case studies are not like the regular consulting cases. They are about efficiency, marketing, revenue, etc. in various healthcare-related situations, but again, no prior knowledge is required. Keep in mind that if you don't make it to the third interview, you probably didn't get it. Think fast, demonstrate enthusiasm, and you should be okay. A couple of weeks later I received an offer. They were very professional and courteous throughout the entire process.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview and was asked to come in for in-person interviews. I had the interviews and heard nothing from them for a few weeks, despite attempts at making contact. They eventually responded that I hadn't gotten the job but that they'd like to interview me for 2 more teams. Scheduling the interviews was a nightmare and they canceled at the last minute. After interviewing again and a lot of positive feedback, they informed me again that I didn't get the job but that they'd like to interview me for 2 more teams, very different from the Analyst role. At that point, I was quite frustrated and declined to continue with the process since it seemed like a waste of time.

    interviewed at Advisory Board in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, HR emailed to set up phone interview -- basic resume/background questions (like others said -- sounded like she was reading off a paper), HR emailed to set up in-person interview -- two case studies, one writing sample, four interviewers (they paid for all expenses, including travel). HR was great and very cordial. Company does have a factory feel and the people that interviewed me addressed this as well -- they hire tons of recent grads and talked about some of the pros/cons.

    Interview Questions
    • The in-person case studies were not particularly difficult but as others have said, the interviewers (higher-ups, senior consultants, etc) are not as conversational or helpful as I would expect/experienced in a case-study style interview.   Answer Question

    interviewed at Advisory Board in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Advisory Board contacted me a couple weeks after applying for the analyst position with a phone interview opportunity. I was traveling abroad during the interview, so the technical aspect of the interview was challenging. A conference number was provided, but was not working during the time of the call. The phone interview was cancelled twice a few minutes after the scheduled time of call. This seemed highly unprofessional.

    Very quick emailing which was nice, and quickly set up a phone interview. Phone interview was very basic, behavioral questions, explaining my resume. asked some odd questions, like she was reading a checklist but adlibbing the question. No offer, no explanation why and no interview feedback.
