Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Brattle Group.

Interview

On-campus interview with members of HR team. About 45 min-mostly behavoiral. Then all-day interview at the office you're interviewing for with RAs, Associates, and a Principal. A guided case interview with an Associate lasted about an hour. They did a good job of not making you nervous.

Interview Questions

  • Tell us about a quantitative project you worked on? How did you validate assumptions and/or data?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (Washington, DC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First-round interview was via conference call and seemed fairly routine. They asked usual questions about why interested in the Brattle Group, previous research experience, behavioral work questions, etc. Interviewer seemed to be going off a list of questions, and the interview did not seem specifically tailored to what I had on my resume. Had to repeat some of my experiences for this reason. Interview lasted about twenty minutes in total.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Brattle Group.

    Interview

    First round was on campus - standard behavioral questions. Next round on site - more questions about quantitative research experience, plus a case interview. Overall, the interview process was pretty standard. Nothing super surprising or unexpected.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Brattle Group.

    Interview

    I connected on LinkedIn and had a phone call with one director and got the referral from him. Then after 2 weeks, I got an interview email and arrange a Skype interview next week. The interview process is normal and not really hard. Basically just asking several behavior questions and go through my resume.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    phone interview and then 2nd round in-office, DC. 6 interviews total for the day, 3 with younger people at the firm (including lunch with 2 RAs) and 2 with more senior people. The younger interviewers were extremely nice and personable but the old dudes were 1. pushing hard and being pretty rude, including interrupting me in the middle of answers and 2. uninterested. They scrutinize your transcript during interviews, which is something I feel like could have been done earlier, since we have to submit transcripts with our initial resume

    Interview Questions

    • Detailed questions on undergraduate research (know the methodology/interpretation of results REALLY well), Case isn't something you can prepare for   Answer Question

    Interview

    First round on-campus interview. I applied on the website but networked with a principal - probably this helped me to get the interview opportunity. The interview was not pleasant. The interviewers are pushing really hard.
