Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MMG Partners (New York, NY) in March 2017.

Interview

On Campus Recruitment, the process took about three days. I had two interviews and a mandatory information session. They took two weeks to respond.

Overall the company seemed very intelligent and the employees were very genuine people. The CEO seemed a little weird but I couldn't gauge him based on meeting him for one hour.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MMG Partners (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    First round, brain teasers and fit. They really want people they would enjoy working with.
    Second round, interview with a partner and with CEO. Also only ask brain teasers.
    Got along well with everyone but did not receive an offer.

    Interview

    Pretty bunk. An analyst or two who has been with the company for one year or less does a "case study" interview. In this case it refers to a brain teaser, not a real case study.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MMG Partners (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I first heard of MMG Partners through my university’s on campus recruiting program. Another alumna made a presentation and I was impressed by her ability to present herself and the firm. The CEO, Dr. Ma, also attended the presentation and I had a chance to speak with him (really important!). After speaking to a few more analysts, I had a sense of how tightly bound the employees at MMG are and pursued employment.
    There were two rounds of interviewing, one round on campus with two analysts, both more recent graduates. Although I thought it would be intimidating to be interviewed by two people, they both were able to quickly put me at ease during the fit-related questions and were helpful to me during the brainteaser/math type questions.
    The second round of interviews was at the office. I met with both an Associate Partner and the CEO again. Both were brainteaser and math focused interviews and were more demanding than the initial interview with the analysts.
    After the sell lunch, I was certain I would accept my offer. We had lunch at the Blue Water Grill then went on to the office for a Casino night. People were smart and fun and it was a good fit for me!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MMG Partners (Boston, MA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    1st Interview - Interviewed by Analysts/Associates. Really easy, maybe a brain teaser and a qualitative question too.
    2nd Interview - Interviewed by CEO and two partners. Harder because they are looking for more specific things. Much harder brain teasers and case questions. Some of them have intentional traps in them. Make sure you talk things through and ask questions when necessary. You can tell if the CEO doesn't like you if he kicks you out of the interview room after 5 minutes, so be warned.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation unless you have another offer with a competing consulting firm.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at MMG Partners (Seattle, WA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Applied through school and went to info session hosted by one analyst and CEO. They said they were looking for four qualities: common sense, intrinsic intelligence, and a positive attitude and the ability to get people to like you.

    First interview was with the analyst and went over resume, interests, and most likely testing for the latter two traits.

    Second round was with the CEO, asked a question about dial locks and why the design was faulty. I did not get the answer right after being given a couple hints. I'm assuming this was testing for intrinsic intelligence. My sister was able to get to the answer though my IQ is higher. My advice is to think of the these type of questions as if your are playing a strategy game and don't try to think or read beyond that when given hints.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MMG Partners in January 2012.

    Interview

    First round interview is half behavioral/experience half case puzzle. Interviewer for first round is an analyst and very respectful and professional. Second round interview is with CEO and a Partner. Partner was professional and respectful, the CEO, however, was pretty rude. He gave no introduction, gave a puzzle question, then opened the door. If that's how an analyst would be treated at work, then I wouldn't want to work there.
