    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    The interview process contains a skill test, often followed by two rounds of interview (can be three in some cases). The skill test contains one excel assignment, and a research document that you'll have to summarize. The first interview would usually be with someone from the HR department. They would basically ask a few questions around your resume. On qualifying, the second round would be with a member of your team based in the local office. This would be a technical round where you can expect a few domain specific questions. Folks applying for quant profiles can expect some excel related questions. This is followed by either an in-person or a telephonic interview (depending on the location of your team's senior leadership) with a senior member of the global team. This is usually a 45 minute interview, and one can expect a few questions around previous work-experience, a few guesstimates and case questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly simple. I think I messed up one of the guesstimates.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at CEB (New Delhi) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted in 2 parts - Part 1: focus was on ability to think through problems - a case was given & I was asked to provide a solution - the interviewer never cared to know the actual answer but was looking mainly at the thinking process. Alongside the case, I was asked some HR questions - interests, hobbies, memorable experiences; Part 2: completely on HR content. I could fathom that the interviewer (a different one) was judging my fit in CEB. I was evaluated on my ability to prepare reports, work in cross-functional environments, and manage multiple priorities.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CEB (Gurgaon, Haryana).

    Interview

    The interview process is very long. HR took 2 months to communicate the final offer. However, the interviews were of medium-easy difficulty. They pay a lot of emphasis on communication and writing skills, and the process consisted of 2 written rounds apart from 3 interviews.There was one HR round (very basic), one technical round which consisted of a case study and a detailed discussion about my internship project and other projects, and a manager round which was quite general.
