I have done several case interviews and now tried to prep with preplounge since I don't have any colleauges to prep from B-schools anymore.
What I gathered till now:
- most cases are just a very long calculation
- there is very little room for frameworks or problem solving, I had several market entry questions were there was ZERO information on the product mix, customers or the client - the cases follow a very strict way and you have to only focus on very few limiting factors
- cases always evolve the same way, there is a short intro and then usually on most basic clarification questions (such as are we are market leader, which markets do we serve) there is absolutely no information. Then the case proceeds by showing a ton of exhibits and prompts you to calculate something
Just a general feedback from someone who has gone through many consulting interviews. Really dissatisfied with the cases on here
