    Analyst(Summer 2016) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Analysis Group (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview with two young (2-3 years out of college) analysts (one of whom was a grad from my school). This was mostly fit questions with a focus on "why economic consulting" and why "AG." Then I got an email saying I had an in-office interview. They paid for my hotel and gas. This interview started with two young analysts taking me out to lunch and giving me a tour of the office. Then I had 4 30-minute interviews with a manager, a VP, a junior analyst, and a recruiter. Lots of questions about "a time you worked in a team" or "a challenge and how you persisted." Also lots on previous experiences from my resume. Know your resume well. Multiple people asked me about previous data analysis experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Why economic consulting?

    Interview

    The first round interview was about 30 minutes and involved a quick dive into my resume and research experience, as well as a few behavioral and fit questions. The final round was a half-day at the local office, where I was interviewed by several people at different levels of the firm. Here, I was asked to take a deeper dive into my research experience, answer a few econometrics questions, and answer a few more behavioral and fit questions. The interview experience also included a lunch at the end with two employees.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Analysis Group in December 2015.

    Interview

    One round of phone interview with an analyst and an associate. They quickly asked me to go through my backgrounds and asked about my prior research experience. I did not prep for the qualitative research question they brought up so did not make it to the next round.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Analysis Group (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through college. After the first round of on-campus interview, I received the second round of onsite interview which is at the Boston Office. The five interviewers are from VP to analyst. You just sit in a conference room and waited for them come by, one after one. All of them take 30 minutes to chat with you, introduce their roles and ask about behavior questions about your experience and your teamwork. After that is a simple lunch and talk with three additional employees. They said that was totally informal but I am not sure if your behavior on the table contributed to the result. Overall very pleasant experience. But as you know, the behavior interviews are something might let you feel good but then when you failed you did not know exactly why. I got rejection after 3 days of the interview. Well, failures built up to success. Keep going.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Analysis Group (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    As described before, standard interview process. Submit Application -> Email from HR to set up interview with Analyst -> Phone Interview -> Fly you to location -> 5 In-person Interviews 30 minutes each. Only frustrating part is waiting after interview. Usually they give out multiple offers, so they have to wait to hear back. But great company, great people.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Analysis Group.

    Interview

    First round was a behavioral phone interview from a current analyst (a senior analyst was supposed to join as well but was not present). A lot of the questions focused on work experience, situational/hypothetical questions, and questions relating to my economics/econometrics background.

    This is a job where having some quantitative experience is definitely helpful. The interview himself seemed inexperienced and did not really comment much on my answers. At the end of the interview we talked more about the logistics of the recruitment process, and what I like to do outside of work.

    Was not a bad experience but I wish I had some feedback on how my answers were.

Pros: “Analysis Group is a great place to develop strong quantitative and qualitative skills. I worked with great managers/VPs who cared about developing talent. I had a lot of room for growth...”“Analysis Group is a great place to develop strong quantitative and qualitative skills. I worked with great managers/VPs who cared about developing talent. I had a lot of room for growth over time - I had opportunities to mentor newer analysts on my case team, contribute to client and expert meetings, and be involved in hiring for the company. The experience set me up well for what I wanted to pursue next. On a different note, Boston is one of the larger offices with a lot of analysts, and Analysis Group does a lot of help everyone to get to know each other. Some of my closest friends are other analysts from my cohort. Overall, I would definitely recommend Analysis Group - great place to learn and grow, and gives you lots of opportunities for whatever comes next in your career.” – Full Review
