Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Cambridge Group.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – One question involved an obscure economic principle from Intermediate Micro that I didn't remember.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at The Cambridge Group in August 2010.

Interview Details – Two 45 minute case interviews with partners at the firm. One more quantitative and one more qualitative. It is to your advantage to only study cases that involve growth strategy as this is their sole focus.

Interview Question – Why don't you want to return to your original employer?   Answer Question

Statistician Interview

Statistician
Chicago, IL

The process took a day - interviewed at The Cambridge Group in March 2010.

Interview Details – 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.
