    I worked at Canback Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rooted in serious analytics and rigorous methods, EIU Canback is maybe the most innovative strategy consulting firm out there. Everyday is a day of learning, challenging yourself and putting your mind to work. I was involved in serious and interesting projects right off the start and had the pleasure to work directly with Dr. Canback. More than a boss or a manager he is a man with a vision and the skills to teach it and put it to work in the service of the company's clients.

    I really don't have anything negative to say about my time as a consultant there.

    Career growth path was very clear even when we were a small company, and the environment was open, honest and amicable.

    Cons

    I'd say working days are long, but that is a reality in consulting and, relatively, they were not THAT long.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Canback Consulting (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I first had an initial screening interview that was part case and part fit. Then I had a final round of multiple 1:1 interviews all mostly case with a bit of fit as well. Each case was roughly 30 minutes in length. Some were realistic market sizing others were more fantastical estimation questions
