    Imbellus Game Question

    Imbellus McKinsey & Company McKinsey Imbellus
    Neueste Antwort am 24. Jul 2021
    Anonym A fragte am 23. Jul 2021
    <p>I took my McKinsey Imbellus test yesterday. I go to a non-target school, however I have had two corporate internships (AT&amp;T, and JPMC). My first question is did my resume pass the screening check if I got the invite for the game?</p> <p>My next question is how did I do on the game if in the Ecosystem design all my species survived and in the Plant Defense game in the first round I was able to fend off aggressors for about 5 subseqent rounds and as the game progressed I was able to keep it off up to the required amount. With those results did I pass and how does this look to help me?</p>

    Imbellus experience: Failed two parts of the tower defense; do I still have a chance?

    Imbellus McKinsey McKinsey Imbellus
    Neueste Antwort am 20. Jul 2021
    Anonym B gab die beste Antwort am 19. Jul 2021
    <p>So I did successfully completed the Ecosystem challenge. When it comes to the Tower Defense part, I managed to complete the first round after 15 turns but not long. Then, I somehow thought that the 12 mins are for all 3 rounds and I already spent 11 mins on the first one, so I rushed through my second turn in around 3 mins, failing in the 6th turn. However, after realizing my mistake, I cruised past the last turn and I actually fend off all the invaders for the third one. Will my application still be considered for interview?</p>
    Something similar happened to me as well, and I passed it. and I know a lot of people who screwed up in all of the 3 turns and still managed to pass! Luckily in this game, the way you played (e.g. strategy of defend ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    Neueste Antwort am 4. Jul 2021
    <p>Hello,</p> <p>I took the imbellus test today, and i believe that i didnt do well in the ecosystem part (i believe one species didnt get its food only), however on the second part i am not sure how do i know that i preformed well? (it told me that the plant survived all rounds and moved me to second part)</p> <p>Will really appreciate hearing some cases of preforming bad in one stage and still getting an interview.</p> <p>Thanks.</p>
    Hi there, It depends. Some offices are not even using the Imbellus as screening alone. So, for those offices you can definitely move forward even with some mistakes in the Ecosystem Management game. In terms of th ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    Hi there, I don’t think that’s needed as they will notify you in due time. Normally you should get a reply from McKinsey within 2 weeks whether you passed or not. However, the time varies according to the office – the ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    <p>Hi there, </p> <p>I recently did the PSG test for McKinsey, and I felt okish about the way I went about my solutions but in the end I passed all the tasks. Does this mean that I passed this stage of the process, and should prepare for interviews, or is it still variable? I am applying off-cycle for an intership if that helps answer anything. </p>

    Hearing back on the McKinsey Imbellus test - expected time?

    Neueste Antwort am 31. Mai 2021
    <p>Hi guys! I completed the McKinsey Imbellus test on the 28th of Feb and have not yet heard back. Emailed the HR team yest with no response and tried calling them today, with no answer. Wanted to ask two things on this if you can please provide your input: </p> <p>1. How long does it typically take for them to get back to us? I know most posts say 1-2 weeks but I would like to know if taking longer is normal (for my sanity if nothing else!) </p> <p>2. Is the longer timeline in this case, or potentially no response, a bad sign? I am of the thought that it is but would be keen to have some insight. </p> <p>Thank you! </p>
    Hey there, I have interviewed more than 170 candidates that went through the Imbellus. 1. The span they heard back after the test was between 1 day and 13 days. The median was around 6 or 7 days I believe. 2. Sho ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    <p>Hi, For the McKinsey Imbellus<br> For Game 1,<br> 1. Is it better to start designing the food chain with the Highest Predator, or from the Lowest Level of the Food Pyramid, the Plants?<br> 2. What are the eating rules about?<br> 3. If we start with the Highest Predator, how do we work out the eating rules? Can we too?<br> <br> For Game 2,<br> <br> 1. I understand there are 3 Rounds in Total, but how many turns are there in each round?<br> 2. And by Turns, does it mean at each turn, we can add more barriers? Or are we only allowed to add barriers only on the 1st turn, and only reshifting or moving the barriers chosen initially in the subsequent turns?<br> 3. What does it mean, by the moves will still continue even after that??<br> <br> Appreciate your advice!! Especially those who have done and experienced it personally please. </p> <p>Thank you so much</p>

    <p>Hi, I want to use an excel sheet to note down the data for McKinsey Imbellus test. Are the keyboard/mouse movements for this purpose tracked or more specifically considered in a negative light? Or for the safe side, should I go ahead with a pen and paper (which I think is more time taking)?</p>
    Hi there, I would recommend to use Excel, you should be able to save at least 5 minutes thanks to copy and paste. The best option is to use a second computer so that there is no possible interference with the tracking ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    telemetry tracking in McKinsey assessment tests

    Neueste Antwort am 29. Mär 2021
    <p>Hi. I have a question about telemetry tracking in McKinsey assessment tests? If I open and use e.g. excel program in the ecosystem analysis on a second monitor connected to my laptop, would it influence the telemetry tracking data? Or only the movements that are in the game are counted? Thanks.</p>
    Hey there, I wouldn't risk it, if they don't track what you are doing in Excel (they likely can't), they will track that your mouse will move out of the tab/screen all the time, which is very suspicious obviously. I ... (ganze Antwort lesen)

    <p>Hi guys,</p> <p>I have just took the McKinsey Imbellus test. I could not finish test 2 (disease management) and test 3 (disaster management). Is it common that we are asked to finish all 3 tests in part 2? Last year, it only required us to finish 2 part: eco system and plant defensive. Does everybody have the same experience? How can you manage to complete all 4 parts in 70 minutes?I will fail anyway, but still want to have your thoughts.</p> <p>Thank you.</p>

    Imbellus game - misunderstanding?

    Imbellus McKinsey Imbellus
    Neueste Antwort am 9. Mär 2021
    <p>Hello guys,</p> <p>I have a question regarding to the McKinsey’s Digital Assesment: the so-called Imbellus game.</p> <p>Twice out of three sessions of the Plant Defense game, the attackers ate my plant ahead of time.</p> <p>But I do not fully understand what did I wrong, as the program specifically wrote that the defensive power of the defenders acting on the same field adds up: e.g. the Snake kills 50 attackers per turn, meanwhile the Coyote 30, furthermore there was also an overlap between their territories, so (in these overlapped fields) 80 attackers should have died in a given turn. Instead of this expectation, out of the 70 groundhogs, 40 left one square from my plant.</p> <p>So in this game, in sessions 2 and 3, the given unit ended twice on round 10 (instead of 15 or more). Although, in both cases I got a green check mark, but I am afraid that this does not mean any good news.</p> <p>Have you experienced the same? Did I mistunderstand something or was it a bug?</p> <p>Thanks in advance for your answer.</p>
    Hi there, Thanks for sharing your experience. You can successfully pass the Imbellus even if you don’t complete all the 15 rounds in all turns in the Plant Defense game. If you complete all of them the likelihood is ... (ganze Antwort lesen)
