    Easy Interview

    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.

    Quick phone interview that last 30 mins. Interviewer rushed through the process. Appeared to have a quota of candidates to reach that night.
