-Has several senior-level people who are brilliant to work with and learn from, who are inviting, dynamic and fair-minded, and who have done exciting things beyond GQR. -Client list speaks for itself (winning access may be another matter). -Great training ground.
-Amount of work/demands not as problematic as failures in management. -Cattiness among some groups, disappointing lack of professionalism among many. -New ideas often resisted or misunderstood (not necessarily reflective of firm as a whole, but definitely there). -Unclear what is being rewarded and why (and who is, and why. Team darlings get the good stuff...and the credit...and the promotions). **MY ADVICE: Take the job, work hard, learn and absorb, watch your back, steer clear of the cliques and asininity. Critical: Don’t count on staying. Be happy to - it honestly can be fun - but never stop strategizing your next step. Slap that name on your resume and use GQR for all it's got. Ask anyone in the biz, no job is safe at this firm.
Advice to Management
-More effective evaluation of supervisors. -Incentivize to improve morale. -Transparency: admin and leadership are plainly disingenuous.
Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner (Washington, DC) in May 2015.
I had an initial phone screening with an analyst and the personal currently holding the position. After that, I received a lengthy writing exercise consisting of writing a thorough background memo on a candidate. Then, I had an in-person panel interview, and was asked to complete two more data assignments beforehand. Finally, I had one more in-person interview.
- What was a time that you made a mistake, and how did you fix it? Answer Question
No real negotiation. I had heard that they were notorious for not negotiating, so I mentioned what I wanted my salary to be in the second interview, and then took what they gave me, which was slightly under.
