    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (Austin, TX) in March 2010.


    Several case studies followed up by analysis and questions. Not difficult... just my first interview of the sort. Probably a good co to work for, but i wound up finding something better for me. For a good leg up, make you you review the "sample cases" that they post to their website
