    I worked at Marakon full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great place to build a skill set that is valued by both clients and future employers! Doing data analysis (becoming an Excel master) --> generating insights --> creating a compelling case and presentation (becoming a PowerPoint master) --> making recommendations --> having fact-base influence over business-critical decisions being made by executives. Pretty awesome to be able to learn how to do that. Great opportunities for internal advancement (e.g., sky is the limit, and without needing an MBA). Great experience to talk to on resume when looking for jobs elsewhere.


    Lots of work, to both client work and internal firm responsibilities.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Marakon (New York, NY) in March 2015.


    The interview process at Marakon is consistent with the experience I have seen and heard of at other firms. You can expect to have problem solving skills evaluated through cases (both in person and over the phone) and you should expect a check for demonstrated leadership through behavioral interviews. Interviewers also assess fit because the firm is so small.
