If you’re coming from another consulting firm moving to a competitor is almost as easy as just talking to another project

The case interviews are a joke, I got nearly every question wrong but still got the job. As long as you’re friendly and can articulate yourself you’ll be fine.

I did held a few case interviews as an interviewer, there is no right or wrong. We don’t even get potential / optimal answers. It’s all about how the candidate can articulate and how they approach the case. Eg: do a quick summary First, ask clarifying questions, do some thinking outside the box. That’s what matters. There is no „wrong“.

Yes for sure. I think for all types of consulting, BUT the degree of difficulty and standard vary a lot depending on which practice (Strategy, human capital, tech, etc.)

This is wrong, they all do case studies regardless of background

Me and a friend both just came from acn to Deloitte as Sr. Consultant & had to do case interviews

Did you join SaT or Parthenon? Because those service lines I believe require Case.

Depends on your team. I didn’t have to do one for tech consulting

Not for Deloitte, EY, and KPMG when I interviewed as a data & analytics consultant

Yes

It depends on practice/role. I went from ACN to PwC as a manager and my interviews consisted of chatting with some Directors and a Partner about fit and experience.

What If I'm interviewing for a specialist role with Deloitte? Case interview or no case interview?

I didn’t get a case, but they grilled me nonetheless on the technical aspects/knowledge of my experience. And asked me technical questions that I had to answer on the fly.

Well what are you applying for? I applied for a cyber role Bc of my background as a tech consultant. It’s based on the position you’re applying for. I got asked basic cloud computing questions to more specific cloud architect questions.

Have you ever quit a job and began your new job just to realize it is not what you were expecting? I’m at a new company and I completely hate it. The role described during the interview and job description is not even close to the work and lack of responsibility I actually have. I feel as if I was misled just so they could fill in a spot. My work is all loan staff. The challenging part is I have to force myself to complete my job. I’ve never was like this before. I have spoken (continued)
