    Account Management Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online after finding the opportunity in TargetJobs. There were several stages:
    1. Phone screen (brief conversation about CEB and the role, more for HR to tell us about them), she immediately invited me to...
    2. Assessment day, which consisted of several talks from CEB employees, Q&A. The assessed portions were a 1-hour long competency-based interview (quite intense) and then pitches to all the managers on a random topic (mine was favourite band).
    3. Online test - you will usually do this before the assessment day, just personality based questions
    4. Phone call with offer

    Client Engagement Specialist Interview

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    CEB's process was not too overwhelming. They flew candidates out for a "meet and greet" the first night, and then most of the next day was spent touring the office and ended with an hour long interview. The people were friendly and it was not too intimidating.

    Account Manager Interview

    No Offer

    Interview

    The first round is a phone screen with a recruiter. Following that there was a online assessment. Afterwards a live meeting with two department directors. The interview format was mostly behavioral based interview questions. Pretty straightforward. The questions are not overly difficult, but they did involve multiple parts, so I found it helpful to write them down.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CEB (Boston, MA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed through my campus career center. Before going in for the interview, I had to complete an online personality inventory and an online IQ type test that involved identifying patterns in shapes. Then two sixty-minute interviews. Fit interview was fine - typical fit questions and a lot of behavioral questions. Case interview question was apparently the same as every other analyst's.

    I suppose then they choose who they want to make an offer to. I wouldn't know, as it's been over a month since I initially interviewed and they STILL haven't given me a final answer. About two weeks after the interview they sent me an email saying they wanted to continue considering me and were "ironing out logistical details" around offers and hoped to make a final decision in the next few weeks (that was a month ago). Two weeks after that, they sent me another email apologizing for the delay and saying they're still interested in considering me. I haven't heard from them since. In response to their first email a month ago, I replied and said I had a decision deadline and asked if it would be possible to get an answer by the deadline. No one even bothered to answer that email of mine. My interviewers were nice, but this process is putting a very negative taste in my mouth. I understand that I'm not their first choice, but it seems rather inconsiderate to take this long to give me an answer; I have interviewed with other small firms and they've made their decisions much faster.

    Business Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Applied through school recruiting, couldn't make the scheduled on-campus time, so had to reschedule for a phone interview. Very basic behavioral questions. Lots surrounding customer-service, sales, etc. I sent a thank you email, but never heard back. They never even got back to me about not continuing on the process. I had to email them (a month or so later - I know, very late, but the position wasn't right for after learning more about it).

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume via college. Was notified that I got an interview but had to take a (IQ) test first. 2 CEB employees/alumni of my college (both very awkward, lacked social skills) came to my college's career center to hold the interviews. It was one round - 30 minutes about my resume and research experience, 30 minutes of a case study.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't be afraid to ask for specific information during the case study. I relied on my mental calculator and after awhile the interviewer told me he would give me the numbers I wanted if I just asked.   Answer Question
