I'm currently in a mid level strategy manager position at a large blue chip. Former IB with 3 years of experience transferred to the industry with no layover in mgmt consulting. For my current positon I went through a 4 round interview process with ex McKinsey, now BMT and CLT level managers.
I was recently contacted by a (in my county smaller subsidiary of) an international competitor for a job to lead their strategy department in my country. First interview went well and they met my demands and we were aligned on much things regarding the job and the strategic agenda.
Now, I'm invited for a final round McKinsey style interview with 3 cases with CLT managers.
Is this really the standard? It seems odd to me, and I fear that I might position myself weak, if I accept this process. Or at least don't question it.
Can somebody enlighten me on this?
thx in advance - and happy holidays to all
