Interview

Very mechanical process - felt like going through the motions and very little interest in knowing me as a person. Typical experience for large firms trying to be consistent. Would have expected more interest in me as a person given client facing nature of the role.

Interview Questions
  • How do you typically work with teams that are not performing well - what techniques have you used - what were the results?

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (United States)

Interview

Multi-round interview process: initial screening with a current PM, three rounds of consulting cases, interviews with two technology executives. The cases are more like standard strategy consulting but with some tech/PM elements mixed in. Overall, the process was relaxed and enjoyable. I really had the sense they want you to succeed.

Interview

Typical PEI + Case interview. Case interview was not a traditional profitability/market entry/M&A study so I was a little shocked. Learned I need to be flexible to use all/any frameworks. Need to use more of binary frameworks not just the typical 3C, etc
