Is the BCG online case performance taken into account at all when inviting someone to the next round? I've heard that not doing well on the online case doesn't seem to impact overall interview performance but can good performance in the online case be helpful?

Yes. It matters. It’s now the only case in the first round.

This is not true in NAMR as of associates. There is an online one and a live one. I am always getting asked to do them for non-cycle hiring.

I took it a few months back, answered 2 of the 9 questions (misread instructions and didn’t finish), yet I still progressed to final round. Note: I also had a live case interview in my first round as well.

Now BCG1’s response perhaps suggests this may have changed in the last couple of months.

There’s a live and a virtual and I think we defer to the results of the live if they’re in conflict? But may differ system to system.

Yes! I had a round 1 (of 2) in a US office last week (experienced consultant hire), consisted of FIT + Online case, did a very good FIT interview (confirmed by the interviewer), had solid recommendations and internal references, previous consulting experience, but did poorly on the online case (maybe also got kind of weird results on the personality test) - I got rejected, so definitely seems to matter - take it as serious as you would a live interview

I’m miserable in my job and it is driving me to a breaking point. I am trying to network to move teams but I have heard that internal mobility is extremely tough to get and I’m just so, so tired. I’m considering a leave of absence to restore my mental health, but I’m worried about how this might impact an internal move if I were to try to do one after a LOA. Does anyone have any insight? I haven’t been getting any interviews from my external applications

I recently accepted a role in a start-up and received the contract today.

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have in this section of their contract? Not sure what the norm is? (I was contractor before so not so relevant info). Thanks in advance!

Thank you!
