    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Senior Associate Consultant Interview

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

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interviews on the phone were great. They were basically resume screening, why diamond, what can you bring, salary expectations etc. The in person interviews were behavioral, case study & presentation, and probing/logical reasoning.

    The folks seem to be nice but have an attitude problem. They seem to think that they are the only ones who know what to do and how to do it, while rest of the companies out there are nothing. Based on my observation and interactions with entry-level analysts, I can conclude they are brainwashed. Of course, why not because majority of the employees come from Accenture world. I also noticed they lived under fear and were afraid to express their own opinions.
