Can anyone share how they prepped for a management consulting interview? The behaviorals are dependent on the co. but just slight variations should work. Is that the same for the case studies (big variation w certain firms)? Any material utilized or in-depth guidance is very appreciated!

Depends on firm honestly. First, find out whether the case is interviewer-led (i.e. McKinsey style) or interviewee-led.

Some firms that are specialized or if you recruit for a specialized group within a firm are more likely to have cases that are based upon that specialty.

If you're recruiting outside consulting but for strategy roles, each company has their own style of cases and you'll have to find a website or archive for them (e.g. Capital One cases are very quantitative and break-even oriented)

Doing 2nd of 3 interviews on Tuesday and looking for interview tips. I learned very quickly that I don't understand how the levels and total comp packages work.

I have 10 YOE and I am in Seattle..
Anybody have an idea of what level this role may fall into and what sort of BP and TC to consider?
