They’re all casual conversations in the traditional style of “tell me about a time when you disagreed with someone” or “tell me about Xx on your resume”. The case study is a generic “solve this business problem.”
Everyone is super nice and wants to get to know you, they also took all my questions about the culture, why they work for West Monroe, travel and office expectations etc.

Good advice here. Definitely have 1-2 specific questions ready the other direction to help you get comfortable if we are a place you want to join, interviews are two-way evaluations!

If you are technical you will have a technical interview, potentially a technical case. It should align to the role you are applying to. If you don't pass those you won't get an offer. Feel free to DM me if you want to ask anything tech specific, can provide high level insight based on the role you are looking at.

I have a third round interview this Thursday, but after I sent my availability, I booked a flight for work that is causing a problem. The interview ended up scheduled for 3:30-4:15, and I'm supposed to be on a 5pm flight out of LGA. Is there a reliably quiet place at LGA to do the interview (I don't have lounge access)? Would it be a bad idea to say my availability changed and I can't do that time slot anymore? Or should I cancel / rebook my flight to later at night?

Anyone have experience turning down MBB? I did and feel quite bad actually as i really liked all the people i interviewed and cased with, and know that so many folks would kill for an offer.

Truth is, i just got an offer that was more aligned to my interests at this time, and possibly better positioning me for where i wanna go. Everyone was super gracious and we agreed to keep in touch and maybe revisit - if life allows i really might wanna revisit. Does anyone know what process is there?

Is making a lateral move for a consultant role from a B4 to at a startup worth for about 25% increase in TC? I see a lot of people here switching for large increases and curious if I’m making the wrong decision.
