Case interviews are pretty standard, but much less rigorous on average than other firms. Culture is terrible as we a just a DD sweatshop. Nothing to get excited about on exit opportunities

What level

M1 - No
D1 - Associate

I interviewed with them while in B school. First hour was spent in a conference room. They gave me a prompt and a preprinted deck with charts / graphs and some markers and pens to add appropriate headlines and marks on the graphics themselves. I was given an hour to do this and the next 45 min was spent presenting this to a partner. This was followed by 2-3 other interviews, some with verbal case questions but mostly behavioral based

PWC1 is spot on for post mba. I don’t think the written/verbal case is given to associates.

If you ace the cases and are friendly, you should do well.

Just to add - if I recall the level of quant questions is more complicated at LEL vs. elsewhere

We’re asked to make up our own case questions. One quant and one qual. I think the difficulty will depend on who you’re interviewing with.

Sorry, I meant LEK - was very drunk when I wrote that typo lol

Can’t you get into Corp dev from DD?
