    Application

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

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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.
