Project Leader InterviewAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in January 2012.
4 rounds, 2 with principals and 2 with partners, roughly an hour each - feedback received after each round and the overall experience was quite pleasant, I was called into the BCG office and had 2 rounds on VC and 2 face to face interviews. Interviewers were quite senior and as such focused more on probing past experience leading teams and scoping projects and not a standard case interview
- Mostly around case scoping and disaggregating into work streams, as well as my point of view on certain industry sectors 1 Answer

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in January 2011.
1) Phone screen with senior partner discussing experiences on my resume.
2) Two in-office interviews with principals - discussed view on consulting businesses, and worked through case interviews (w/ heavy quant component)
3) Three in-person interviews with partners - included case, career aspirations, reasons for considering leaving current company

Project Leader InterviewAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Delhi (India)) in April 2010.
4-5 interviews including HR and final offer. You go ahead only if the previous one is successful. Very consistent interview process across different interviewers. Mostly case based - 2 cases per interview is a minimum. The cases are usually a stripped down version of a real life case example that the person must have gone through.
