    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group.

    Interview

    I got a call from the human resource department to schedule a 30-minutes phone interview. Then one week after that the phone interview was made. Asked some general behavior interview questions, and went through the resume for background and skills questions. Data analysis skills and projects are helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Brattle Group in December 2017.

    Interview

    This was the screening interview by phone. I talked with the HR for about 10 minutes about behaviour and background questions. They did not give me further interviews. I guess it is because I am an international student.

    Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Initial 30 min interview on campus with Associate and HR rep, followed by all day interview in office with various levels. Some case study type questions but mostly behavioral/discussion of background.

    Interviews themselves were relaxed and the people were great - I spoke to analysts through principal levels.

    The strange thing was the rejection - of course I was disappointed, but I was confused with feedback I received and think it wasn't congruous to what I was told during the interview (and wouldn't have been worth their time investment to fly me out for the day). That's the reason for the negative experience. Rejection aside, I don't think the reasons discussed afterwards matched the circumstances very well. That soured the experience for me greatly.

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Initial one hour interview with the human resources professional. The second stage included a one hour phone interview with two principals. The third stage was an almost full day (9.30-4pm approx) involving multiple 45 minute interviews with principals, associates and analysts and a lunch with two associates.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of typical questions designed to ensure you are a good fit culturally and have the right skill set. Questions probing team work skills and prior work experience. Some case studies including, for example, a corporate valuation case study, although prior work experience was probably a more important "case study". A lot of questions about my PhD research, including a some criticisms, which I suspect was mostly designed to test my communication skills.   Answer Question
