    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    Through a conference. Get contacted directly by a manager. Set up a time in a week. Get an initial phone interview. Two questions. Tell me about your research. Why choose Analysis Group. Also if you have any questions to ask them. Interviewed by a manager and a VP. The manager seems very interested in my research. He even asked a specific question about my research, meaning he really read my job market paper! The VP was much less interested in my research, who did not ask any questions about my research.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Analysis Group.

    Interview

    I interviewed through on-campus recruiting. I did not think the interview went extremely well, but I think I was able to express my research and interest in economic research well. The in-house interview was 5 one-on-one interviews. Each focused on a specific quality from teamwork to research. There was also an informal lunch with some employees and other interviewees.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty standard behavioral ones. Similar to the first round.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online, and got the initial phone interview in a week.

    Interview questions were pretty standard. They really care about your relative healthcare experiences and asked a lot of follow up questions on my healthcare projects during internship. Behavioral questions were standard, too.

    • If you could re-do something, what would that be? How would you re-do it?   Answer Question

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Interviews were not case-based, instead the interviews delved deep into technical skills. The interview was fairly short (only lasting about 30 minutes), so make sure you only highlight things that are important. If you start rambling, they'll move you along to the next question. The two interviews took place on the phone and involved two people interviewing me each time.

    Interview Questions

    • If I said that I knew how to use a certain computer program, I was asked to describe how I did so in great detail. So only claim to know things you know really well!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Analysis Group.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and in person interviews. The turnaround was quick, I heard back the day after my phone interview about flying out for in person interviews the next week. The questions in all rounds were pretty quantitative, focusing on past statistical research experience. They weren't brain teasers or anything, they just required critical thinking about statistical analysis. I had four interviews in person, two with analysts, one with a manager, and one with HR.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate.

    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Analysis Group (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The first round was a phone interview with an Senior Analyst. Took ~1 hour and was mostly behavioural questions focused on prior research experience.

    The next and final round was 5 x 30min interviews at the office I was applying for (Boston) with Senior Analysts and Managers. Again, it was mostly behavioural questions focused on prior research experience. I was rather disappointed to not have any case interview questions because those are fun. As my interviewers did not co-ordinate amongst each other and seemed fairly new to the process, they all asked essentially the same questions: Discuss my prior research experiences followed by a question on any teamwork-related challenges I've encountered.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Analysis Group in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through university career center. Received an email about 2 weeks later for a first-round interview at the career center. Had interview with an Analyst and Associate at once. They had no case interview and focused solely on my past research experience. As others have said, make sure to know the methodologies and conclusions of past research projects.
