Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board.

Interview Details

Very streamlined process. My resume was submitted to HR through a friend's referral. Within two weeks, HR contacted me for a phone interview. Within another two weeks, I had an in-person interview that consisted of speaking with two practice managers and an executive director (3 hours) as well as a one-hour writing test.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Advisory Board in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Arduous process - long interviews with everyone asking the same questions. It could have been shorter to get the same result.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview with HR recruiter was a simple screening, but it resulted in an invitation to visit DC for a face-face interview with 4 hiring managers/directors. I knew beforehand that ABC was a revolving door of college grads in their first consulting gig who left for grad school after a year or two, so the career development opps were not well positioned, just an afterthought. Unfortunately, the company isn't prepared for the experienced worker who wants to move over to consulting - by the second of 4 interviews, I knew they were not interested in me, blew off time commitments with lame excuses and weren't prepared for the interview. I was more disappointed in them they probably were in me. And getting reimbursed for expenses was a small circus, not representative of an organization that prides itself on quality and best practice.
