Senior Managing Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Tulsa, OK
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IBM (Tulsa, OK) in June 2015.

Interview

The process was great. Met wonderful people. I was applying for the job from which I was laid off. However, they all but offered me the job at the final interview with the hiring manager. I was told I was the perfect candidate and to expect an offer. After all, it was the job I had for 15 years. I heard nothing for nearly 2 weeks and I followed up with them. I was shocked when I was told they were going to keep looking for other candidates. I thanked the recruiter for her help. She assured me that she would be getting back to me with new opportunities, as I was a perfect rehire candidate, that my skills were extraordinary and that I had very good recommendations. It's been over a month and I have heard nothing.

    Senior Managing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Armonk, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM (Armonk, NY) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Without much fuss but maybe a bit slower than smaller, more agile companies. Very heavy on in-person interviews to test fit and overall candidate performance. The screening process for my particular position started at the university with a phone interview and closed with a intense 4 interviews in one day session a couple of weeks later. Emphasis is on fit (passion/enthusiasm for the industry and company) and business cases that require some creative thinking and basic understanding of the IBM business model.

    Interview Questions

    • Heavy on business cases that are somewhat IBM specific. Reading up on the company's strategy helps and is expected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very limited negotiating power. IBM has clout in the industry and uses it. This giant doesn't fall with any individual and will not give in. Will respect market rates though as you can prove them.

    Senior Managing Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was very open and relaxed. We talked about my experience and how it related to the position. it was a very positive experience. The position is within the Interactive Experiences part of IBM and it has more of an agency feel, rather than the more stuffy/old school IBM. So a lot of what I had read online about IBM did not apply here. There is change afoot within the organisation and new blood is helping with that change.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the thing I was most proud of in my career to date.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was done in advance with the recruiter, so I was aware of what was being offered in advance of the offer.
