    Senior Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus with 2 senior folk separately. One of them was HR and was primarily fit based, the other had some "what would you do to accomplish X" questions thrown in. Was invited to the next round to complete a 'case study' which involved a sample of the type of work one would do at GLG, but by that point I had already accepted another offer. Pretty laid-back process overall.

    Interview Questions
    • As I said, just a couple of "how would you go about accomplishing task X" questions. Was also asked what I do for fun and what the last couple books I read were.   Answer Question

    Research Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview Details

    I completed the first phone interview and it was very simple. I was first asked what I know about the company and the specific job that I applied for. Then my interviewer elaborated on what I had said and finally asked me why I thought I was a good fit for this job. I was required to speak a lot more than the interviewer so make sure to do your research and have questions prepared. I think with this interview they're mainly testing your ability to carry a professional conversation over the phone since this job requires you to make phone calls regularly to potential council members.
    The next step will be a second phone interview with a hiring manager and if I pass that round, a final interview in person.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview Details

    Initial interviews happened immediately and with great organization. There were two phone interviews followed by three web interviews, then an in-person interview. All of the interviews were pretty straght-forward and candid. There was an informal element to them. The focus seemed to be on work experience and how that translates to the role I was applying for.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview, two thirty minute interviews. The interviews were very straight forward, though they seemed most interested in seeing if you understand exactly what they do. Both interviewers spent around half their time going over what an expert network is and different ways of thinking about it.

    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was good at first. I completed two initial phone interviews and the case study interview before finally scheduling a trip out to Austin to complete my final in-person interview. In the time period between the last two interviews my recruiter fell out of touch with me. I received no confirmation of the interview despite having sent multiple emails trying to reach out. Upon my arrival in the office it seemed as though they were not prepared to have me. Having been so excited about the opportunity at the start, by the end I felt as though the company did not care at all. This final lack luster experience left me disappointed in the company.
