I applied online and interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview Details – Cases were straightforward. The hardest part was just the pressure of being in the interview setting. I will say that the cases really fly by when you're in the actual interview. I felt like I'd barely gotten started and hadn't really figured anything out before I had to make a recommendation!

Interview Question – No surprises.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview Details – introduced by ex-colleague who is now working at BCG. The interview took place three times. First one is with Manager, and the second one is with senior manager, and the third one is with engagement partner. I failed in third interview. The 3rd interview looked going well, but he doesn't conduct any case interview.
