    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Maven Wave Partners in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process can be quick or fairly lengthy. It all is derived from needs at the client engagements. With that said, the firm is always trying to find good talent to keep the pipeline of quality professionals solid. So my experience was fairly standard in that we met a few times over a couple months to make sure the firm and I matched well. Then when the right client opportunity was presented, I was ready to take the job.

    In other situations, there is an immediate need and the entire interview process can be completed in a couple of days.

    Interview Questions
    • This is highly dependent on the role be applied for and individual interviewer. However, in general we look for strong business consultants who have supporting tech skills, or vice versa. So depending if you are a 'business major' or a 'tech major' be prepared to answer very detailed questions in your respective area of expertise.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The firm is very fair when it comes to negotiation. They understand that it doesn't do any good to hire someone on that is unhappy with compensation. This is just a recipe for issues down the road. That being said, the firm understands current market value of roles.

    Standard interview started with a recruiter followed by several phone interviews with various levels within the company. I found the phone interviews to be mostly standard experience based interviews with little challenge. I ended the process with a face 2 face interview with one of the senior partners. The recruiter ended up discussing an offer however I declined based on the cultural fit of the company.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maven Wave Partners in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straightforward, and involved in-person interviews. The senior leadership of the firm was most interested in where I wanted to take my career to ensure their opportunity would afford me the future that I was looking for. Moreover, it seemed like they wanted to make sure that we fit with each other culturally, as their culture was one of a family of people, not mini, separated teams of people.
