    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Two telephone interviews - one HR and another technical. Flown down to Chicago for a full day of interviews - all one-on-one. Consisted of case interviews, one presentation, simulated cases, knowledge of finance, modeling, project management etc. A couple of interviewers were sort of demeaning and almost looked down upon you - either for real or as a pretense to put you under stress.

    Negotiation Details
    Very little room for negotiation - usually all salaries are standard by role and seniority (save for partners) and you have very little wiggle room.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university's career center and got an initial interview. There were two components to the interview: 1) a 45-minute behavioral interview and 2) a case/situational interview. The first interviewer was very congenial and personable, but the case interviewer was very cold and did not seem to show much emotion. Both were fairly straightforward, but make sure you prepare for the case study beforehand.

    Manager Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was an expereienced hire candidate. Campus / inexperienced recruits go through a different process. Started with a phone screen with expereinece hire recruiter. Determination made to proceed by recruitrer and then they set up a one-on-one with a senior practitioner (principal or partner) in the industry I had experience. Senior practioner provides feedback to recruiter, where another "go/no-go" decision is made. Next scheduled to come into Chicago office on a Friday for a sequence of interviews to test presentation skills, analytical/problem solving skills, and fitness for available positions. Presentation is a short case study where you need to develop a short deck (5-7 slides) to address proposed approach or solution. You have about an hour to work on it and then present to first interviewer. Second interviewer will do more "what if" discussion to test your problem solving skills, and evaluate your approach (e.g., questions you ask, relating of relevant experience/situations). Finally, the last interview is with a more senior person assessing your fitness for available roles and overall fit into the firm and its culture. Since I beleive I fell short on the last interview, my recommendation is that you just be yourself, and if they don't think you're a good fit, you probably aren't meant to work there.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Diamond seemed like a very nice place. The people were very interested in other places I had been looking, and they attempted to deter me from joining at another firm. They wanted to make me see how their culture and their firm was different. In addition, the case was interesting, and it helped me understand what Diamond actually did.
