Same as any other strategy firm. Hard, quantitative. It’s interviewer led like McK. Prepare like you are preparing for any other case.

Ask them to ask as many questions as they can Reiterating the case to make sure they got everything is a great sign There are practice cases on the website both for strategy and implementation - would suggest to do all just for fun but the actual cases mimic the structure to quite an extent

I’ve seen a lot of post on FB about BCG Platinion that lean to the negative side. I am being approached by a recruiter for a position in Europe. Anyone willing to provide more detail on their experience? Maybe willing to chat? I’m also curious if I should be pushing for principal. They mention PL, but that seems like a step down. Thanks, fam!

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
