Advice to Management
Formalize internal processes and increase knowledge sharing across teams
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BCG Digital Ventures (Berlin (Germany)) in April 2018.
DV Berlin is incredibly thoughtful with their interview process, it is incredibly technical as well as they want to know who you are. Everyone is really friendly. I had to go through 5 rounds for the interview process, the first being HR call, 2nd being a phone call with an experience designer, the 3rd was a design challenge, 4th was in person panel as well as 1 on 1 interviews with at least 4 other senior employees, 5th was with an experience design director. Make sure you have the technical skills to back you up as well as presentation skills, they are really looking for incredibly talented people.
