    Interview

    Got scouted from a college recruiting event, interviewed with an alumni working at Innosight and another associate. Got a call back and then had a phone interview, afterwards got an in-person case interview with 5 different senior analysts and consultants in the company. Was given 2 different case studies on the spot to analyze, approach, and solve. Very rigorous interview but very interesting approach.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    High level strategy cases focusing on top line growth and innovation. Process was very extensive. Two, 45 min phone interviews (case+fit). Was invited for the final round within a week. Final round consisted of multiple one on one interviews (two with partners).

    Fantastic process. Appreciated their concerted efforts to make me comfortable and really make me understand the kind of work they do. The experience during the final round convinced me that this was the firm for me!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Innosight in October 2014.

    Interview

    The first interview was split 50/50 between case and behavioral. The 30 minute case interview asked for you to make a recommendation after analyzing the client problem. The interviewer seemed more interested in the problem-solving process and questions asked than the solution or specific concepts explored. They offered lots of information to help with the case and mostly allowed me to drive the discussion. The behavioral interview was 30 minutes with a different member of the company. They wanted to know about my specific interest in consulting and the company. Lastly they had me do an activity and asked what I thought its significance might be in the context of their practice. Both interviewers were very kind and supportive, continuing to live up to the reputation that the people are great to work with and have a love for learning. This is just the first interview, then you may be invited to a day-long interview at their office. That interview determines whether or not an offer is extended.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Innosight.

    Interview

    There was an on-campus interview, followed by a super-day at the company's office. I did not get through the second round. In the on-campus interview, there was one behavioral and one case-based interview. They gave us a 3-D puzzle to solve in the behavioral interview and asked general questions like "walk me through your resume" and "why innosight?"

    Interview Questions

    • Case: The client was an athletic apparel and sports company, mainly manufacturing shoes. They were already conducting some sustainable practices, but had not publicized them to their target market (15-18 year old youths). The question was to figure out whether they should publicize it, to find out whether their target market cared and come up with means to advertise it.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Innosight (Babson Park, MA).

    Interview

    It was an OCR interview. The first 30 min interview was a fit interview, asking about your ideas for innovation and how you would go about solving large problems.

    The second interview was a case where they gave you extremely limited information and wanted you to come up with solutions more than how you would go about solving the problem.

    Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Innosight (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was first contacted for a phone screening, which took about 30 minutes. I had two more 30-45 min. phone interviews which were part case, part fit. I was told by an employee I knew at the firm not to prepare very structured responses or use specific frameworks (think Case in Point). The case on the first interview was about a company trying to test a new idea very quickly and for very little money and how they should go about it. The second interview was about a more traditional healthcare case, and I did feel that being more familiar with traditional frameworks was what they were expecting.
