Cartesian™ is a specialist consulting firm of industry experts, focused exclusively on the global communications, technology and digital media industries.
For over 20 years, we have advised clients worldwide in strategy development and assisted them in execution against their goals. Our unique portfolio of consulting services and managed solutions are tailored to the specific challenges faced by executives in these fast-moving industries. Additionally, our partnership with Elutions delivers Smart Building and Smart Asset solutions that drive operational savings and intelligence. Combining strategic thinking, robust analytics, and practical experience, Cartesian delivers superior results.
The name Cartesian signifies intelligent and creative thinking, imaginative problem solving and technical expertise from its origins relating to the French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes. “Cartesian” is the name of the company’s UK-based subsidiary, which was acquired in 2007. Up until February 2014, the company had been operating under the TMNG Global, CSMG and Cartesian brands in different markets. Now operating under the single Cartesian brand name, we continue to serve our clients with excellence in strategy, execution and managed solutions.
The combination of the recent organizational changes, collapsing of business units, and the rebranding under the name Cartesian, all facilitate greater collaboration in support of higher-value engagements, the creation of IP and the delivery of cross-functional engagements, especially in the growing area of managed analytics. Cartesian will continue to focus on driving the long-term roadmap for its proprietary Ascertain® software solutions and overall technology enablement.
“This change comes at a defining moment in our Company’s history as we operate as one firm, one team under a unified, single brand. The name Cartesian best defines our expert team, what we do for our clients, and reflects our business approach across strategy, execution and managed solutions. We continue to evolve the business and its offerings and as we move forward in our business transformation, now is the perfect time across the organization, to adopt the Cartesian name and all that it represents.” – Donald Klumb, Chief Executive Officer of Cartesian

Friendly people, collegial environment. Hours are not bad, rarely over 60/week. Can expense dinner and cab ride home, which is nice.
At times too many projects at once, causes staffing snafus. Also, the firm does not sponsor MBAs, which is something to consider if you are interested in that path.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Cartesian.
Had a first round interview through a recruiting network. Was given a case study, half strategy, half quantitative. Superday lasted four hours - included case study, research exercise and fit interview. Case study was similarly structured. Research exercise was 80 minutes and consisted of three questions alone in a room with a computer and a phone.
- Case studies were standardly difficult - discussing consumer and producer side strategy/decision making architecture as well as calculating things such as LTV of different products, annual revenue given certain data, etc. Answer Question
