Healthcare Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Analysis Group.
Interview Details The recruiting process will be faster if you are referred by someone or through on-campus recruiting. The phone interview is not bad--be sure to know your resume well. They will ask very specific technical questions during the on-site interview. There is no typical consulting case interview if you apply for the Healthcare Analyst position.
Interview Question – Various model assumptions Answer Question
Summer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)

Interview Details Two rounds of phone interviews. They will call to schedule first. The process is normal, no weird questions. They did a good job at being interested at your research work. Also they seem to know your CV and cover letter very clearly, so prepare well according to your CV and cover letter.
Interview Question – They asked why I would like to work here, but I think it is reasonable and not very hard. View Answer
Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Analysis Group.
Interview Details Standard interview process: hour phone interview then a half day of interviews at the office.
Phone interview: essentially a walk through of your education and work experience. They also described their work and office.
In person: Meeting with a series of seniors plus a case study. Generally difficult questions more focused on critical thinking and recalling details of previous analyses you've done. Smaller amount of getting-to-know-you type questions. Case study in excel.
Interview Question – Describe how you would estimate the cost of replacing a nationwide pipe system. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The offer was generous and the office was nice, but the atmosphere felt less collegial/laid back than I like.

Very Easy Interview
Associate/Economist Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Analysis Group in February 2014.
Interview Details Took them a year and a half to interview me. They scheduled one and then said "our needs changed" and canceled it. Then they tried to schedule again and eventually, a year later had this 30 minute interview. Generic reject...no difficult or interesting questions. It almost seemed like they were interviewing for strictly legal reasons.
I even had to email them back to get a generic cut and pasted response of "no." They were overall very disorganized and forgetful.
Interview Question – It was just "talk through your CV" and "here is what we do" - nothing special. Answer Question
Applications Support Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Analysis Group in March 2014.
Interview Details I had one appointment at their Boston office. It was a fairly straightforward interview, and the hiring manager and team member were very professional, yet warm and friendly. Despite not being offered a position in the hiring manager's team, I felt the interview was more than fair, and that it was very objective. On the other hand, the representative from outside the hiring manager's team, was unpleasant (strange given that I wasn't even interviewing to work with them). At the end of the interview, two of their other employees both voluntarily offered to validate my parking, which was a nice surprise! Unfortunately, I parked at another parking garage, which they couldn't validate (so, don't do that!). They told me I could get it reimbursed by emailing my receipt to the main PoC. When they said that, I should've known just to leave it alone. Long story short, they never even bothered responding to my email, even though I was polite and thanked them for their time. I felt that was very rude. However, as with any company, there's always one person who poorly represents it, so I won't hold that one person's attitude as typical of the whole organization.
Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The typical interview questions were asked, including "why are you interested in this position?" and "why are you looking to leave your current position?". The hiring manager asked reasonable questions related to skills and concepts. Answer Question
