    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Datamonitor (San Diego, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First round was a written analysis test - okay if you can manage time well. It is a lot of data to process in an hour so you need to know how to filter data. Second round was presentation of some case questions. This material is sent a week prior and they required a fair amount of research and time. People signed in from London, New York for the presentation but it doesn't get overwhelming. There were absolutely no behavioral questions which is weird for an entry level position. Overall, I though it wasn't a very hard process.

    However, they got back to me after a month and a half at which point I rejected because I had a better offer. The salary offered is also extremely low - they quoted 45k.

    Overall, I thought that they make the candidate do a lot of work. And while testing skills is important, it is also equally important to evaluate the candidate as a person.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Datamonitor (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    3 Interview stages. Two phone interviews and an in-person interview. Second interview appeared to be a case study. Third interview was based on your analysis of materials previously sent.

    Overall, it was a good experience. They were very responsive and accommodating. While at the third interview, they even offered the position for a separate location closer to where I lived at the time, although this was not the location of the position opening. Ultimately turned down the position due to better offer.

    Analyst- Healthcare Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datamonitor (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn for the Healthcare-related Analyst role. The recruiter set up a phone interview and from there a formal interview was arranged. The salary listed on Glassdoor for this position says 65k, but they are offering 40 - 50k. I met with a director and senior analyst, both really nice and genuine people who seemed to enjoy their work and the company. They asked me specific questions like, " You said you like studying viruses, what kinds?" I was a little caught off guard but recovered. We got along fine. The part where I messed up was the written "exam." They want you to read a press release and then summarize it in your own words. I got nervous and ended up basically restating what the article said. I knew I blew and sure enough, they declined any further interviews. Overall a good experience.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    I was contacted via e-mail to set up a phone interview. Passed the phone screen and was told that I would hear about the next step (taking a pre-interview exam) soon. I didn't hear back for awhile and finally contacted them to see about the test. They sent me the test which was very poorly formatted and had an equation sheet that was nearly impossible to understand. You are supposed to assume that because one word is on top of another you should divide the two variables.

    Interview

    Met with a team lead, as well as a senior analyst and another analyst on the team. Spent about an hour or so with each. Pretty standard questions, some market sizing - similar to consulting interviews I've been on.

    Healthcare Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datamonitor (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Began with a phone interview with someone from HR. Next I spoke with the hiring manager for the position, who was friendly, but didn't seem to be too focused on examining me or my skills too deeply. I was then invited in to meet several members of the healthcare practice with two 2:1 interviews, an excel skills test, a powerpoint skills test, and finally another phone call with the hiring manager (who was out of the office that day).

    Overall, the entire process was pleasant. My complaint though, is that I reached out to them three times to learn their decision. Although, I was told they'd get back to me, they never did. After playing this game for a month, I gave up.

    Healthcare Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a 30 min telephone interview with Director and senior consultant. This was a positive experience and felt like a fair interview. After this invited for a presentation and test. Too short notice given for preparing presentation and very little guidance on the content expected. Be prepared for this is the advice. This was followed by a brief interview with director and a couple of other members in team. It was ok and fair questions. Excel test was tricky if you have no business experience but straightforward if you know basic business calculations. No feedback or notification of rejection considering they stated that they would notify. Job re-advertised.
