I have been working at Prophet Brand Strategy full-time (More than 3 years)
Exceptional group of people work at Prophet. Curious, kind, passionate, intellectual, irreverent.
Long, often unpredictable hours and travel. Comes in waves.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy.
The first round of interviews was conducted on campus. It includes two interviews: one behavioral/mini cases and one presentation. The behavioral interview was mostly questions about my resume and past experience. The mini cases were simply business scenarios and if you thought it made sense (i.e. Starbucks is thinking about expanding its dinner options, do you think this is a good idea). The presentation topic was emailed to me a few days before the interview. You had to pick a brand and discuss whether you thought it was good or bad, why you thought that, and what opportunities for improvement you think they have. Both of these interviews were engaging and not too difficult. Following that round, I was invited to go onsite for the last round. This included 2 behavioral interviews with partners (extremely conversational) and a case study with a senior associate. The case is given to you at the beginning of the case interview and you have 20 minutes to review it. Then you spend the next 40 answering questions listed on the case and follow-up questions. This was just meant to test your critical thinking skills (not trying to trick you) and you do not need any formalized approaches to solve it. The next week they called me to inform me I did not receive an offer. Despite the negative outcome, I would recommend the company to others interested in applying.
