    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (Cambridge, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Two quick phone interviews, 1 case interview
    Very low-stress interviews - just talk to RAs who currently work there. In general, just be confident about your past work and be prepared to be able to answer the questions of what economic consulting is and why you think you would be a great fit for that industry. They are rapidly expanding and have fewer applicants than expected, so your odds are good.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Brattle Group (Washington, DC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Quick application process although cover letter is required. They generally invite people over for second round, but I did not make it. I think early applications are preferred. Not very technical, more of a personality interview. They ask you to submit all your documents online and to install an annoying Skype like software.

    Interview Questions

    • First round, very general. Simply describe past research experiences.   Answer Question

    Interview

    On campus first round interview, and was invited to on site Super day. Had 5 in person interviews + lunch with 2 RAs. Mostly behavior questions, and question related to your research paper. They really want to find someone who is passionate in doing research, because most of their daily work is to conduct data analysis and writing reports. Interviewers include RAs, Associates, and PHD. A case study was also conducted as part of the interview. Very different from regular Management consulting cases, but not need to prepare in advance.
