I worked at Oxera full-time (Less than a year)
Nice people to work with.
You will never be valued. The work they will ask you to do will be very boring.
Advice to Management
Try to value your employees more.
I applied online. I interviewed at Oxera in June 2016.
The application process had some tests and 3 interview rounds. Tests are a Watson Glaser and an economic assessment.
First interview is conducted by two senior consultants. Only very few motivational questions, but they asked a lot about my previous experiences. Then questions about competition economics, regulation and econometrics. After this a 40 minute written case study, you can pick from 5 questions and have to explain in a way a client would also understand without economic knowledge.
Second round is conducted by 2 partners. Involved competition economics, corporate finance and some econometrics.
Third round was facilitated by a partner and a senior partner. They were interested in whether I fit into a specific team, so questions were related to that, plus the usual 'how would you explain XY to a client'.
Overall, very nice and accomodating, but challenging experience.
