I had a google interview with this exact same question. I was at a small boutique. I just said “well… it’s Google” and the recruiter is fine with it.

If it’s a start up or small company, answer thoughtfully. If you’re applying to another Big4 or giant company, spit out whatever you can think of and move on, a question like this is of no value to your hiring decision in a corporate conglomerate. But if it’s a small team of high motivated people trying to make something cool, then think about it and answer thoughtfully

It’s literally one of the most important fit questions in interviews.

Talk about: 1) the wonderful people you’ve spoken to there— they all speak so highly of the firm, they’re friendly, you can already see yourself working great with them. Assuming you’ve networked 2) whatever they’re uniquely good at. Talk about CDDs if at Bain, talk about how TURN is fascinating at BCG, Etcetera
