Syndicated Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC).

Interview

Initially emailed with an HR assistant and had a brief phone interview with her. I was invited to do an in person interview which lasted from 9am-3pm. During this time, I provided a writing sample and spoke with 2 project managers. Each one spent about 30 minutes on a behavioral interview with fairly straightforward questions. There was also a case interview which asked you to explain how you would conduct research to answer a specific question for a company.

Interview Questions

  • The case interview was the most difficult part. I didn't get a lot of feedback from my interviewer, so I never knew if I was really on the right track.   Answer Question

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then flown to DC for in-person interviews. Very friendly, interesting cases. Clearly a young office culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The Advisory Board does a lot of behind-the-scenes work. If you are interested in healthcare, why do you want to work here, rather than as a doctor, policy maker, etc?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very flexible.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I participated in a half hour on campus first round interview. My interviewer was a new employee that had only been there for a year. She asked typical interview questions and also specifically asked about my experience with writing courses which I don't really have since I'm an engineer. It sounds like an interesting company but it's more of a "research at your desk" job.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in December 2008.

    Interview

    First round interview was 30 minute resume walk through with a representative from HR, pretty basic questions.
    Second round interview consisted of a short writing test, and several 1 hour interviews with senior leadership, all with case question components.
    Everybody seemed friendly and intelligent. Office isn't very fancy; lots of cubicles.
