    Interview Details

    Pretty bunk. An analyst or two who has been with the company for one year or less does a "case study" interview. In this case it refers to a brain teaser, not a real case study.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MMG Partners in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first heard of MMG Partners through my university’s on campus recruiting program. Another alumna made a presentation and I was impressed by her ability to present herself and the firm. The CEO, Dr. Ma, also attended the presentation and I had a chance to speak with him (really important!). After speaking to a few more analysts, I had a sense of how tightly bound the employees at MMG are and pursued employment.
    There were two rounds of interviewing, one round on campus with two analysts, both more recent graduates. Although I thought it would be intimidating to be interviewed by two people, they both were able to quickly put me at ease during the fit-related questions and were helpful to me during the brainteaser/math type questions.
    The second round of interviews was at the office. I met with both an Associate Partner and the CEO again. Both were brainteaser and math focused interviews and were more demanding than the initial interview with the analysts.
    After the sell lunch, I was certain I would accept my offer. We had lunch at the Blue Water Grill then went on to the office for a Casino night. People were smart and fun and it was a good fit for me!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MMG Partners in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    1st Interview - Interviewed by Analysts/Associates. Really easy, maybe a brain teaser and a qualitative question too.
    2nd Interview - Interviewed by CEO and two partners. Harder because they are looking for more specific things. Much harder brain teasers and case questions. Some of them have intentional traps in them. Make sure you talk things through and ask questions when necessary. You can tell if the CEO doesn't like you if he kicks you out of the interview room after 5 minutes, so be warned.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at MMG Partners in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school and went to info session hosted by one analyst and CEO. They said they were looking for four qualities: common sense, intrinsic intelligence, and a positive attitude and the ability to get people to like you.

    First interview was with the analyst and went over resume, interests, and most likely testing for the latter two traits.

    Second round was with the CEO, asked a question about dial locks and why the design was faulty. I did not get the answer right after being given a couple hints. I'm assuming this was testing for intrinsic intelligence. My sister was able to get to the answer though my IQ is higher. My advice is to think of the these type of questions as if your are playing a strategy game and don't try to think or read beyond that when given hints.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MMG Partners in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round interview is half behavioral/experience half case puzzle. Interviewer for first round is an analyst and very respectful and professional. Second round interview is with CEO and a Partner. Partner was professional and respectful, the CEO, however, was pretty rude. He gave no introduction, gave a puzzle question, then opened the door. If that's how an analyst would be treated at work, then I wouldn't want to work there.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MMG Partners in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    First, there's a company presentation on campus. The next day, there are on-campus interviews typically only available to people who showed up at the presentation (it's the CEOs way of gauging interest in the company). The day after that, second round interviews for the top participants in the first round, typically with a partner or the CEO. There was definitely a feeling of sketchiness with the CEO, Moses Ma, but he makes a GREAT salesman, so I was definitely excited about the opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions weren't difficult. They're the usual silly case questions that have no real basis in reality and are simply a fake way to measure intelligence. "How many <fill in the blank> are used every <fill in the time period> in the <fill in the geographical region>?" Another question type would be some mathematical quiz-ish question, again not all that complicated. The questions are fun if you're into these kinds of questions though! I enjoyed the interviews.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much wiggle room on negotiation. I think I was making the top possible salary for my position, so there wasn't much higher to go.
