    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Analysis Group (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first stage was a very chill on campus interview (30 minutes with closest office). I had heard it was largely behavioral, but I was actually asked a case question--no calculations, but what my approach would be. I talked to my friends and most people were just asked behavioral questions. Part two was a superday with my requested office. I had about 6 30 minute interviews with different people, about 50-50 split between quantitative/case and fit/behavioral, as well as lunch. Everyone in the office was incredibly nice. I thought I had not done well on the case, but I heard back within the week that I had received the offer. I think they may weigh the fit questions more heavily.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Analysis Group (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round of the interview had no case component, unlike many other E consulting firms. They asked me to describe in significant detail both a qualitative and quantitative project that I had worked on before - so know your stuff inside and out. They also asked what your location preference is, and I honestly forgot so it did cause some awkwardness. Know your top three before you apply!!!

    • What was a situation where you had disagreements within a team, and how would you have done things differently?   Answer Question

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Analysis Group (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, I was invited onsite to meet managers, associates, a VP, and I was asked to prepare a research presentation. The recruiters were prompt and thorough with communicating necessary information. They made sure everything ran smoothly and that I was comfortable. The people were smart, warm and enthusiastic. I felt like these were not just potential colleagues, but friends. I do hope that we may cross paths again someday, and that speaks volumes for the people at AG.

    Ultimately, I did not receive an offer.
    I can look back to assess what I could have done differently if that may help someone else in the future. Giving a presentation added a new element, but I accepted the challenge as an opportunity to share a project I loved working on. In hindsight, I think I chose something too simple in design and analysis. The interview portion was challenging but conversational. I tried to give concrete examples that demonstrated my experience, and how I've overcome challenges and solved problems. There were some questions related to statistical tests and interpreting results that I answered incorrectly, but should have known.

    There were a couple last minute changes to my schedule but in the moment, I rolled with it. I was told one individual was "too slammed". This can feel off-putting, but adjustments were made and it worked out. Yet another individual was a substitution who came in flustered, distracted, disengaged. She asked questions in a manner that I could not tell if these were general or specific to my work. I tried to stay positive and adaptive. I have been a hiring manager in the past, and I have been trained to show enthusiasm, be available, undivided, only making subtle checks on time. A number of the people I met with were actively monitoring time or checking their phones, which was a tiny bit distracting. Regardless, I understand the real-time logistics. I respected each individual's time and that each style was different, unscripted, questions flowed to the next.

    I accept that there is a better suited candidate for the role, and that I am a better fit elsewhere. I do feel disappointed as I really liked the opportunity and the environment at AG, but I want this review to help others in the future, no matter what side of the process you are on.
