If it’s 1 hour, I’d expect it to be 20 mins of get to know you and your background, 30-40 mins of case and then that last variable 10 mins of just questions you have. Cases are fairly straight forward. They give you the “case” and you take a min, think about it and then go at it. Sometimes people like to do numbers, sometimes people don’t and just want to talk through mechanics. Usually very laid back

Depends on the person

Recently did a series of interviews for experienced associate with S& -- didn't do any full case study. Mostly experience based with some highlevel "case like" questions. I.e. What would be the P&L impact of switching from on-prem sales to SaaS (as a software business)

The salary bands are pretty public on here. I applied to SA (really above my experience, just a shot in the dark out of bordem) and was offered A3. That's what I make now and I don't love pure strategy so I stayed where I am

Everyone writes their own cases and does what they want

Lol oh man.

Just spoke to someone who landed an interview at their dream company. They didn’t get it through applying. Here’s what they did instead: 1. They studied the job post. 2. They identified that the reason for the hire was to generate more company revenue. 3. They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it. Whats the best way you’ve seen someone land an interview?

I was reached out to about a role that I was interested in pursuing but the recruiter said their base was 30k-40k lower than my range.
