Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dean & Company.

Interview

Applied through on-campus recruiting. Interviewed on campus. One interviewer walked me through a case interview, minimal behavioral questions. The case was very quantitative, asking for multiple computations of large numbers; as a math major, I struggled because I wanted a precise answer not an estimated one.
The second round of interviews would have been the next day; I was told by the end of the night that I had not received a second round interview.

    Interview

    Recruited on campus. Had a 30-minute case interview for the first round with no fit component. The case ase was very quantitative and required you to evaluate trends in the data. Was called back the next day for 2 45 minute case interviews with a 15-minute fit interview. One interview was with Principal and one with a senior analyst at the firm. Every was extremely nice and receptive. They were a little slow to get back after 2nd rounds but responded to a follow-up email.

    Interview

    Applied on campus; process took about two weeks. Basically all consisted of case interview (very limited behavioral portion)...cases were thought provoking and interesting. Interviewers were conversational and helpful. I found them to be challenging but practice definitely helps.

    Office visit was useful to meet most of the firm and get a sense for the work. Had multiple opportunities to ask questions of analysts as well as managers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dean & Company in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty much went straight to a case interview. There was no behavior portion at all. It was a standard merger and acquisition case, but it was a pretty terrible experience given that was my first live case. The interviewer was very nice and led me through the entire case.

    Interview

    Applied through career center and received on campus interview. Dean employees came to do a presentation the night before the interview, and it was very dry. I immediately got the vibe that the office and company were probably very boring. Could have just been my impression though.

    Interview Questions

    • Case was very straight forward analysis of 3 banks in different markets and their growth rates, etc. Was expecting more of a management consulting open ended interview, but this was very interviewer led and math intensive. Involved fairly simple calculations.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dean & Company (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    I applied through my school's recruiting website, so the interview happened on campus. It was 30 minutes long. The interviewer asked me a few questions about my resume then we did a short case study. The case was very standard and easy to get through. I got the feeling that whether or not I would get a second round depended on whether the interviewer liked me. My interviewer didn't seem very interested in my responses, and needless to say, I didn't get the second round interview.

    The next day, I got an email informing me I would not be invited back, but they would be happy to set up a time for a feedback phone call. We set up a time, but no one called me until an hour later. It was rather rude.
