Thoughts on Elixirr? A quote from their new blog post has me gobsmacked: “Why are our clients ranking us higher than MBB competitors? Overall, we outperform them significantly, but it’s the practicality of recommendations, understanding of our clients’ business, ROI, quality of junior, senior and partner teams, delivery of project, and knowledge of sector where we really set ourselves apart. And guess what? This is where we set our clients apart too.”

Diversity & Inclusion at Elixir
- Anonymous Employee in New York, NYNo OfferNegative ExperienceEasy InterviewApplication
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Elixir (New York, NY)
InterviewThe first interview with the recruiter went fine. She seemed very nice and helpful.
The second interview, which was with the hiring manager, was a little more rocky; she did not seem very prepared, as I felt like I had to carry conversation and prompt for interview questions. These questions were pretty straightforward (tell me about yourself/do you have any experience in...?). When I asked about the work environment, she mentioned that it was very difficult, with very little explanation. She also mentioned that many in that department are new, which is another red flag. I asked about her management style/what she expected from her direct reports to help the team succeed, and she replied that her management style is what she gets from her superiors, and gave me no further detail than that.
Next, was the interview with the boss of the hiring manager. She would ask for clarification on answers that didn't really have any. It got to a point where she was probing, with multiple questions, about a 5 week gap in employment. It seemed to me that she also did not have many questions prepared. It really felt like she was less concerned with how my experience would fit with the requirements, and was more interested in finding a question I would answer incorrectly. She also brought up, on multiple occasions, that the environment was "very difficult" and "challenging", completely unsolicited, which is another red flag. I asked her to clarify further, at which she replied with a description of the workload, then insinuated that I was just looking for a job to "hang out and relax in".
In my response to my "thank you" I sent to the director, I got a canned "thanks for applying" letter, which is disheartening after spending so much time prepping and interviewing for this company.
TL;DR - felt like the entire department was in disarray and didn't like being there. Seems like management didn't really play an active role in managing, leaving everyone to their own devices. Lots of red flags.Interview
