    Business Development Man Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (Austin, TX) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and set up the initial phone screen with the recruiter. She gave me a call at the appointed time. Not sure if she was having a bad day or what, but she was very short throughout the whole call that only lasted about 13 minutes. She rushed through speaking about the company and could not provide me any details on the position when I asked her. She could also not even tell me what the compensation range was or how it was even structured. She was very short again in all the questions I asked her and just kept saying the hiring manager could tell me but then when I asked who I would be reporting to for this role or what their title was, she couldn't even tell me that! I was pretty disappointed as I was looking forward to this interview and this role but this initial screen just seemed unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (Austin, TX) in May 2018.

    Interview

    A phone interview is a VERY POOR way for a potential hire to express themselves and to convey who they really are. This is not the right way to gain a first impression. My colleague and I were both very disappointed when we both got turned away from this company after phone interviews, which was very strange given that we are both very well spoken, well versed, experienced students, and expressed a strong passion for the company. Experienced as in we have track records in investing and both helped a startup develop into a ~$5M valuation. The recruiting managers seem to neglect value and innovation and that is a shame.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (Boston, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening by technology team leader. He asked good questions, and was respectful during the almost hour long call.

    I was then asked if I had code I had recently written and could share with the engineering team in person.

    The in-person interview was one of the most interesting and thoughtful I've come across. Members of the engineering team (about 7 of them) and I met in a room for a bit more than an hour, with me projecting my code and talking through important portions of it.

    The group asked questions and challenged me to explain a few decisions I had made in my code.

    Following this, the entire team went out to lunch, where I was given the opportunity to ask questions and generally get to know more about the role and the company as a whole.

    I found the process to be entirely respectful, and even enjoyable, and for any employers reading this who are currently using other methods (including take-home exercises, or whiteboard problem solving) to consider this approach.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by HR who scheduled me for a phone interview with the hiring manager. The first attempt I awaited their call and after 30 minutes of silence I emailed HR to find out what happened. HR responded with an apology because evidently the hiring manager forgot or had to reschedule last minute. They rescheduled our call, but even the second attempt I still did not receive a call as scheduled. I emailed HR and then never heard from back. My experience tells me that their company lacks organization and professionalism overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I had to follow up twice via email after she asked me what day would work best for the phone screening. The day of the interview, she called me 15 mins late and was speaking to me extremely fast so it just seemed she wanted to get the interview over with. She couldn't answer my questions about the role and didn't pay much attention to my answers. That phone screen lasted only 6 mins.

    That call made me feel uncomfortable because I had prepared a lot for her to not even pay attention to me.
