My buddy that worked there said the psych test was basically the way they do behavioral interview. He couldn't really expand on what they want (type-a vs. collaborative, etc.), but my take away is if you don't pass it, it's probably mutually beneficial, because you wouldn't be happy and they wouldn't necessarily appreciate you...the proverbial "just be yourself."

Unfortunately, I given much feedback on that stage of the assessment process. It could have been the quant or psych that did me in... Quant is the wonderlic test and I don't think I did well on that test. Psych - they definitely take it serious and are looking for a specific profile(s). It's a serious of personality assessments and a behavioral interview with there industrial psychologist

In the same position, OP. I would come in as a brand new director, but they do bring in directors with a much shorter time to MD (partner). In addition to the comp, for you, I would want to have a clear sense of time to MD.

Also considering a role with Alix, at the VP level. Finished up with their final psych and "IQ" screening a few weeks ago. Still waiting to hear, but I understand that their base is slightly higher with a bonus structure greatly higher. Slightly higher meaning 10-15% and greatly higher meaning 25-30% of current. This is all at a level lower than Director.

Is it really a partnership? Wiki says it was acquired by a PE shop in 2012.

There is an equity opportunity at the Managing Director level, as I understand.

ATK1 - what level are you now and what are they offering at the VP level? What type of work / group?

Thanks ATK2, it's been about 3 weeks since I've heard back from Alix, if you don't mind me asking how long did it take them to get back to you after psych and wonderlic? Trying to gauge what to make of this long wait.
