    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was smooth and streamlined. First, there was a phone screen with an Associate Partner. Then, an interview day in a city where many other interviewees participated. The interviews there were one-on-one and then a team presentation to the panel (with a Partner) on a case. The offer came the next week. The recruiter kept me apprised during all the stages.

    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was brief. I was satisfied with the final offer.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone interview that last 30 mins.
    Interviewer rushed through the process.
    Appeared to have a quota of candidates to reach that night.
    Asked one business case type interview question and discussed current client assignment.
    Questions were fairly standard, spend time discussing my resume and work experience.

    Get it ALL coming in - you will NOT see a dime / raise for at LEAST three years; more if you're not working yourself to death. Get your money "up front" and make at least one counter, if needed.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    I was hired via the referral process. I had to interview with 5 people including the HR recruiter. There were no case studies. The first interviews focused on my past work experience and areas of expertise. The final interviews were with the Partner of the practice to see if I would be a good fit and where I could be placed.

    Interviewed w/ IBM GS this past Friday in Chicago that turned into a nightmare and worse experience in my entire career. Interviewed w/ the most egotistical, abrasive and belligerent Associate Partner I've ever experienced. WARNING! Stay away from IBMGS.
