    Except one person, all the people met during the interview process were clear in exposing the case and going throught it step by step.
    The process is very long and was as follows :
    Round 1: Internet based test to test your analytical skills + a case study
    Round 2 : "Basket case" asking you to answer 4 questions (via written slides) + 2 case studies
    Round 3 : 2 case studies
