Application

The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA (US)) in October 2011.

Interview

After applying for the position I was e-mailed to schedule a phone interview. That phone interview was postponed 2 weeks. After a successful phone interview, I was asked to take the online assessment, which was a patterns test (you cannot study in advance). Then I was asked to come in for 2 behavioral interviews and one case interview. The behavioral interviews were standard and the case was relatively easy compared to other consulting firms (no math!). Unfortunately, I was not given an offer.

    The people, office, and work culture of the Corporate Executive Board seemed all very positive. The interview process did take a long time and it took a while for them to get back with me after the interview. Unfortunately, I was not offered a position.
