Our interviews are also very conversational, so drive and engage your interviewer as much as possible. Good luck!

Not sure if our style of casing is different from other consulting firms...

BCG cases are simple but have counter-intuitive “A+” answers that you can get to if you drive hard. Example: profitability problem with high fixed costs, can cut unprofitable product or lower price to drive sales and return to profitability

Get the numbers right. BCG likes quant. We like to think we drive to insight further than others, primarily in a data driven way.

Seconding quant. I found BCG to be much more numbers driven than most other firms, except for maybe ZS.

Scenario: company A made an offer with 1 week to decide, but company B interviews still in process. company Bs process involves an extensive assignment that will take me more than 1 week to prepare. Is there any chance of asking to streamline the process for B given A’s offer? I would like to be able to compare offers if possible, but if company B has no flex then I’d likely accept A.

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
