Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan

No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Milan) in Apr 2020

Interview

Embarassing. The company privileges women with sub-par CVs to high level male candidates in the name of gender balance. If this is the way to balance the predominantly male workforce, the management has to think again if this is the right way to do that. Hopefully, in the long term, their business will resent of these foolish decisions! Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that men are better or worse of women, I am just saying that a person should be evaluated for his CV independently of the gender or similar factors. And that is definetly NOT happening here.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Dubai) in Oct 2019

Interview

Conclusion : ridiculous firm severely lacking professionalism in terms of promised feedback. Details : Agressive principal with little patience during my interview (both in fit and case study parts). Promised detailed individual feedback by the HR team. 5 emails during 2 months in order to get this promised feedback. And I was "thrown" between different stakeholders...

Interview Questions
  • The case was on the subsides for a region with severe energy supply problem.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Casablanca

No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Casablanca) in Mar 2019

Interview

Conclusion: cabinet ridicule complètement obscure et mensonger dans leur démarche, et n'arrivant en effet pas à gérer les candidats homonymes en 2019. Détail: J'ai été très chaleureusement accueilli par la responsable de recrutement pour planifier des entretiens suite à une cooptation. 2 semaines plus tard, ma candidature a été annulée, et mon profil ne correspond soudainement plus à leurs "besoins actuels". Et celui qui m'a coopté a complètement changé de tonalité lorsque je le contacte pour savoir pourquoi. Visiblement mon dossier ne rentre pas dans le système (que j'ai uniquement pu savoir après avoir contacté le gestionnaire mondial de la plateforme de recrutement). Au lieu de s'excuser et essayer de corriger le problème ou de me prévenir de la date de l'entretien par téléphone (ce qui revient au ressort d'un cabinet de conseil en stratégie), ils ont choisi de changer leur "besoin actuel", ce qui en dit long sur la culture d'entreprise. Ce qui est d'autant plus étonnant pour un cabinet ayant une équipe Data (BCG Gamma) et vendant des prestations.

Interview Questions
  • Votre CV est très intéressant, mais notre besoin change *au bout de 2 semaines* (en fait leur système RH est juste défaillant selon la réponse de leur gestionnaire du réseau de recrutement), c'est inutile de nous appeler, le comprenez-vous ?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Brussels) in Mar 2019

Interview

Conclusion: cabinet ridicule annulant des entretiens sans raison valable avec leur "besoin actuel" changé 2 semaines plus tard. Réponse agressive lorsque je leur rappelle. Détail: recommandé par un employé, j'ai été très chaleureusement accueilli par la responsable de recrutement pour planifier des entretiens. 2 semaines plus tard, ma candidature a été annulée, et mon profil ne correspond soudainement plus à leur "besoin actuel". Lorsque je leur appelle pour savoir pourquoi, j'ai été raccroché au nez très agressivement.

Interview Questions
  • Votre profil ne correspond simplement pas à ce que nous recherchons au BCG, ni ailleurs. Est-ce clair pour vous ?
