    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Not a good experience for a good company like BCG. The interviewer is ignorant of investment and does not understand the differences between buy side research and sell side research. He simply kept abashing the field of equity research and boasting that how posh consulting is.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Summit, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews and both rounds were in the NJ office. After the first round, BCG was very helpful in providing a phone call with personalized feedback. The second round of interview was definitely more challenging with a more senior member of BCG.

    Interview Questions

    • Two case interviews for each round. The interview started with one or two behavioral questions then moved straight to the case. The case portion involves a graph and is more self guided than led.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Prague (Czech Republic)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Standard online application for summer intern with written ability test first. I attended the test only out of curriosity - had other plans for the summer at that time.
    The test is not predominantly logical and for rough math skills but rather for speed reading (i.e. typical GRE or GMAT test) unlike with Mckinsey.
