    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Cambridge Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Pretty standard consulting interview... three rounds of cases with a little bit of behavioral/get to know you thrown in. Firm really values analytics and math in the cases, so be solid there. Also every case focuses on some aspect of growth strategy. My three revolved around market sizing, customer segmentation, and pricing.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at The Cambridge Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had a pleasant conversation with one of their manager, and was told to be invited for a second round on site interview. However, the HR suddenly emailed me that they changed their mind and want to add one more one hour phone interview for me. The interview was easy, just case studies. After the interview the HR just ignored me and I was later told failed the interview.
