I look for: structure, communication, confidence (but not arrogance), ability to deal with curve balls, analytical horsepower and polish. So everything.

Can you expand upon what you would consider structured vs not structured?

Ability to structure a problem clearly and appropriately and able to articulate why (I.e, hypotheses driven). Must be MECE. I'd advise looking at case books and sources.

^ Ahem. Exactly.

IBM grow up and get out. You act like a 10 year old on Xbox

Structuring and communication

OP, sorry if I hurt your feelings. All joking aside try to do some real prep. Good luck.

Yeah because someone from ibm can hurt my feelings lol

...so getting to the right answer also helps

Lol there isn’t always a right answer A1. That’s not the point of a case study

Right. So maybe a better way of phrasing that is that there are a whole lot of wrong answers. Avoid those.

Also...there's still usually a right answer. And it's never a bad thing if you get to it.

I killed our case. Read case and point

I accepted the offer but later it felt like I got a low offer so I asked the recruiter to reconsider my base salary, if possible. So the recruiter agreed and will be coming back this week with a revised offer. I'm not sure how much I can negotiate after accepting.

How many people are waiting for bonuses before leaving their current firms? I’m at PwC and our bonus will be given on 10/1.

Hi fishes.

Last week I gave interview in Mindtree and got a call from HR on Friday saying that I have cleared my managerial round and that she'll be calling me for further discussion. She then setup a interview and told me that she's taking my photo for further process.
