    I have been working at Summit Consulting full-time

    Pros

    A lot of growth potential. Junior staff get a lot greater responsibility than they do at other firms. There's also a lot of variety in the work, much more so than at other firms that do government contracting. Lots of smart, friendly staff. Lots of professional development opportunities offered, such as going to training, internal trainings, etc.

    Cons

    The management of overhead issues like IT and office space leaves something to be desired. Due to the major growth, sometimes projects are understaffed at first, and take a while to get staffed up to an appropriate level. That leads to some late nights, but that's limited.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Summit Consulting in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Quite an onerously long process. I applied to a management consultant position via Linkedin in September. In October, I was e-mailed by HR with a list of follow-up questions about my resume and future goals. I replied and didn't hear back for weeks, and finally was reached with a simple e-mail from HR saying thanks and that they will ping the hiring manager about next steps which should be soon. I don't hear back within the stated time frame so I reached out several days after that to inquire about my status. I get dragged along and then finally get a phone call from HR just going over the same issues I had already answered via e-mail about what I'm doing and what I'm looking for. I'm finally sent an e-mail by a different HR employee inviting me to come in for an interview for multiple positions. The earliest date was the first week of January. I wasn't given details about the roles until close to the interview date, despite being told I'd get them sooner.

    I finally show up to the interview and half the people I was supposed to meet with didn't show up. One person only briefly stopped in and then had to leave to take a phone call, and never returned. So I spoke with two different teams, each consisting of two people. The first group was senior staff, the second group was junior.

    I was told I would get a response within a week. The end of the next week I was told the positions I interviewed for were offered to other candidates. 4 month process overall.

    I got the sense that they always struggled with my candidacy, stating throughout the process via e-mail that they were trying to see where I would fit into the organization as they had a number of different openings for different roles.

    Both teams during the interview mentioned how I had done a lot of different things in my career, confirming that uncertainty of how I would fit in. It seemed the profiles of the current employees were more or less narrower than the type of experiences I've had. I also got the sense that they weren't terribly interested in me as a candidate. They didn't clamor to ask me questions and I was compelled to lead the conversation by asking my own questions and making those answers as developed as possible.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were really out of the ordinary, though I was asked by a junior consultant to describe a model or product I created in a previous role.

      Also, the senior consultant in the first group kept asking subtle questions in an apparent attempt to learn as much as possible about my personal life.
