My cases at Google interview were very strange and group specific. It was in Google Marketing Solutions, not sure if that is the same as you. I did a lot of case prep but none of it really applied. In the end it didn’t work out. If you are interviewing for GMS feel free to PM

Interviewing now for a BizOps role and I second D1. Cases to this point have been nothing like consulting. Very much product specific (we want to increase chromecast market cap, how would you approach this?) They basically hit you with problems they've been tasked with solving. I really prefer it since it neutralizes all of the stupid tips and tricks that the folks that churn out cases use. My suggestion is to just study the crap out of the business and the product. Read Tech Crunch, and just have a list of ideas for opportunity and improvements that you can pull from.

D2 - Thanks! This is helpful guidance

Failed the program manager Interview late last year. My advice is to be able to answer questions methodically in your mind but conversationally outside. You should understand how do market sizing questions (e.g. that Chromecast question has a market sizing component) . Minor estimation type questions and make your answers short and sweet speaking terms of measurable impact and maybe how you measure that impact. DM and I can send you what I remember. I want you to get so you can help me get in when I try again

Got an offer in GCS and my strategy was to do a bunch of company/product research (made a 20+ slide deck) and a ton of consulting case starts. Obviously the Google interview won't be as detailed as consulting, but it helped me practice identifying and communicating an initial structure. Then from there, just be flexible and follow the interviewers lead because tbh you have no idea where it'll go. Rest assured though, you'll get caught off guard with a question (case or behavioral) that will catch you off guard. Best of luck!

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales?
