    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Sherlock Holmes would have struggled to solve this one.

    You are given a large amount of incomplete or abstractly related data and then asked quantitative and qualitative questions. As with most case interviews the only 'right' answer is the maths and therefore if you get this wrong you can pretty much guarantee that you won't get passed onto the next stage. Getting the maths right in the time given with the data laid out in that way is the challenge and not the complexity of the problem itself.

    The amount of data is overwhelming. When the interviewer takes 15 minutes to find the data you said you wasn't there when you've had 30 minutes to look over 15 slides you know it isn't good. It is either indicative of 1. A poorly prepared interviewer 2. Too much data and complication 3. A combination of the above

    Interview Questions

    • There were three questions related to M&A in Pharma - Market opportunity of targets, recommendations on what to buy and what to do about the current portfolio of drugs.

      I was given a short brief, a slide pack of 15 slides (full disclosure - 5 were title slides, the other 10 were pretty densely populated with data. Not a Word document but not far off in some cases) and 3 questions to answer. It felt less like a test of how you thought and more a test of whether you could find the right piece of information buried in a mass of data under the pressure of time. Although I accept that finding data is an important aspect of consulting it is generally more about asking the right questions to get you there quickly and less about reading over reams of data and picking the right piece.
