I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in November 2013.
Interview Details – I was referred into The Advisory Board and received contact from a recruiter within a week to set up a Skype interview. Unfortunately the recruiter did not understand that I am an experienced corporate marketing professional and they wanted to interview my for what is essentially a "sales" job within the organization. We discussed that I would be a better fit for another position posted on their website. The recruiter was going to forward my resume along to the right individual, but I never heard anything from them again.
I sent a think you email and... nothing. I sent a follow-up email and again... nothing. To me it seems rather unprofessional to not respond to thank yous or follow-up especially when you are referred into the organization.

Interview Details – Was contacted within a week after an employee referral. I applied earlier for a research position and when I asked the interviewer she said they look at resumes holistically and decided a sales position would be better.
Interview was exactly as stated in earlier reviews. It felt like she wasn't listening to what I said but rather just reading off of a paper to make sure I'm a normal person

Interview Details – Alumni refer, got back for phone interview quickly. Pretty standard phone interview style, covered same questions other posts mentioned. Interviewer seemed to read off a list of questions and really looked into your experience in healthcare industry. Same as other posts mentioned, if you don't have related experience, interviewer's interest went down as you could probably feel. The overall process was quite professional.
