    Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CEB (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    They had 2 parts to the interview- an hour long behavioral part and an hour long case study. I talked casually with my interviewer for 10 minutes, then she asked 6 straightforward behavioral questions (they care a lot about how you would fit into the company so be prepared to talk about your experiences with other people, your leadership skills, etc) and then I asked questions for the last 10 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CEB (Washington, DC) in November 2009.

    Interview

    There were many other people interviewing for the same position. It seems like they are constantly hiring for this position. The asked some very awkward questions that I was not prepared for -- i.e. What other jobs are you applying to. The job also seemed to be a gloried solicitor, which was masked very well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was simple and was done via email and phone. It was convenient because I did not have a job at the moment so I was available for any time. The people in charge of this process were very kind and flexible. I really enjoyed the interview. It was fun and slightly challenging, luckily I was prepared for the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Took about 2 weeks for an email and then it was followed by a phone interview. The person who I interview with was very pleasant, and answered all my questions regarding pay, vacation time, religious holiday etc. The questions that were asked were very general questions, for example, what would I contribute to the company, where do I see myself within the next 2 years.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CEB (Washington, DC) in July 2017.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Entire process took 6+ weeks. After applying online, received email communication requesting phone screening interview w/HR rep. Was referred to another HR rep, who took 2+ weeks to coordinate a 2nd phone interview. 2+ weeks later, scheduled for 2 back-to-back 1:1 interviews. 2+ weeks after interview, received email that was no longer being considered for position.
    HR reps were very encouraging, staff were not. Instead of a "let's learn more about you and see if this is a good fit" feel, it was much more, "Why are you here".

    Nasty - they played hardball. I was ready to walk until they came through at the 11th hour with what I wanted. This was a small glimpse of what life was to be like at CEB.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The people, office, and work culture of the Corporate Executive Board seemed all very positive. The interview process did take a long time and it took a while for them to get back with me after the interview. Unfortunately, I was not offered a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    After applying for the position I was e-mailed to schedule a phone interview. That phone interview was postponed 2 weeks. After a successful phone interview, I was asked to take the online assessment, which was a patterns test (you cannot study in advance). Then I was asked to come in for 2 behavioral interviews and one case interview. The behavioral interviews were standard and the case was relatively easy compared to other consulting firms (no math!). Unfortunately, I was not given an offer.
