    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PA Consulting Group in October-2017.

    Interview

    1st Round : Behavioral telephone
    2nd Round: Superday (technical, behavioral, group case)
    3rd Round: Call with Partner

    The group case is still the Pyramid case that is mentioned all over glassdoor! I️ have a feeling they never change the case. As an FYI it is not possible to quantitatively evaluate all possible options, so make sure to divide the deliverables throughout the team.

    The technical interview was not technical. It was mostly an evaluation as to what your perspectives are in the respective sector and where you think there are opportunities for growth. Most technical questions were specific to your previous project work on your resume.

    Behavioral interview was the standard “tell me a time”.

    Honestly, I️ got the impression (on multiple fronts) that they are struggling as a business (limited resources/ under utilized consultants/emphasis on limited clients). I️ frankly would not recommend if you are considering other management consulting firms, but ultimately the decision is up to you. Good luck!

    FYI there travelling agency will fly you out and back on the same day for superday. Make sure they give you enough time to get to and from the airport.
