I know that some companies have specific formats which means there are better ways to prepare than others. For PWC they gie you 15 minutes to read a case then just ask you questions, does anyone know if Accenture is more like that or the more traditional way Mckinsey gives their cases?
I have an Accenture case interview coming up and I was wondering if anyone knew if they had a special format?
In general the interviews at Accenture are not that structured:
- No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the interviewer
- 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
- 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
- Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer
- For fit I would prepare: Story about yourself; Why consulting; Why Accenture; Leadership; Team work; Your questions to the interviewer
My understanding is the format is standard interviewee-led case, as with BCG, Bain... Many companies have differences by office however, might be the case w/ Accenture as well.
