    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I'm not too sure what to say. I was contacted two days after I submitted my online application for an interview. They were very fast in scheduling interview, and I spent a long time prepping for it. However, when the interview day came, I did not receive any call. I inquired about this to the coordinator, and I called the desk of a person that was supposed to interview me, and left a message. After that, well, I heard nothing. I was a bit disappointed because I used to have a good perception about this company. The least they could do was to tell me the job position is closed, or give me a short explanation as to why they just stopped contacting me after setting up interview.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the Advisory Board career website. I initially applied for the New Product Development position, but after a call with HR, they thought that I should apply for the Research Analyst role instead.

    Phone interview: About 30 minutes. Why Advisory Board? Tell me about a project you did that was innovative?
    On-site: 3 in-person interviews. 2 were case interviews and 1 was a behavioral interview. Also had a 1 page writing-sample.

    Interview Questions
    • Case questions were odd, but I went through the consulting interview process so I was pretty. Definitely know how to case   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Advisory Board online and received a request for an interview a few days later from a recruiter. The phone interview, scheduled approx. 2 weeks later, was very easy. No behavioral questions, nothing beyond my resume and why I was interested in the company. The woman interviewing me was very kind and professional. I was rejected 3 weeks later.

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

    Interview Details

    3 parts to the interview: personal interview and case study with junior-level research assistants, 1 hour writing/research session, (lunch break), and another personal interview/case study with more senior-level research employees. Interview questions seemed repetitive, as if they had not coordinated with each other which employee would target which areas. Staff didn't seem unfriendly, but cold and unenthusiastic about the work.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting and was contacted shortly after for a phone interview (~1 week). Like others have said the phone interview was a very basic screening type. Basically just talking through your resume with someone from HR, with just a few behavioral questions.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Advisory Board in May 2013.

    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.

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I was referred in - definitely the best route to go at this company since they're huge on cultural fit. The folks in HR were extremely nice. The interview process was definitely tough though. The first round is typical behavioral to evaluate fit but there are several cases and typically a writing test. I felt the interview was fair though, no tricks.
