    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview

    The day starts with a very informal get-to-know-you breakfast between candidates and current employees. There is a tour of the beautiful office space and two ensuing interviews. The first is 2-on-1 and the second is 1-1. Both interviews were very straightforward and showed how interested the company is in assessing if the interviewee is a good fit. Everyone was very welcoming and relaxed, and the overall experience was very positive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to interview weeks later. When I had my initial phone interview she mentioned me considering a different role. So I interviewed on the phone for both..not really prepared for the second one...

    Two weeks later: In person interviews, all 30 minutes but multiple rounds. I met so many people in 3.5 hours and each round comprised of people from the two different departments mentioned on the phone.

    Then I was called back a second day to come in and do another round of interviews. Then a week later called on the phone to do one more phone screen.

    They said they would let me know by the beginning of the year and I heard nothing. I finally started looking at other places and accepted a job offer elsewhere. And a week later got an email to interview for an even different position.

    Disorganized to say the least.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied, then received an email about a week later. It took over 2 weeks to schedule the phone interview. The first interview was with someone in HR who just ran through my resume with me. It took another few weeks to schedule the second round, also on the phone (which I was told would be in person). The position I was interviewing for went from senior associate to dedicated advisor. The second interview was super specific about the details of my most recent experiences in grad school. None of the questions were very difficult.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for one position months ago; never heard back until I reached out to the recruiter. I was told that the position was taken by an internal candidate, but then I was recommended for another position. Had 1 phone interview, about 10 days later 1 face to face interview in D.C. I felt that it went positive, especially given the short time I had to prepare for the interview (case type question, plus a powerpoint). Heard back 6 days later via email that I did not get the position. Asked for feedback, no response.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process took a little over 3 weeks. I initially applied for 2 consulting positions online, and received a form letter saying they would not be moving forward with an interview. I connected with someone in the firm from a mutual friend, and after a conversation with her, she found a better position for me and gave me an internal referral. I was contacted for a phone screen, which went well. Basic interview questions, HR was positive, friendly, and had a lot of great things to say about ABC. Followed up with an in person interview at ABC where I met with 3 senior managers. They asked about my experience, background, my opinion on selling tenured vs. new products, how I felt about a lot of travel, etc. After the in person interviews, I had another phone interview with a team leader, and was extended an offer 3 days later, which I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • How much monthly client revenue I generate, what my main responsibilities are in my current role, why ABC, etc. Standard interview questions.   Answer Question
