What is the interview process like? How many interviews should I expect?
We hold two rounds of interviews. The first round is typically held virtually. The second round is held at the office location for which the candidate is interviewing. It involves a series of interviews conducted by our consultants. Interviews cover a mix of behavioral, teamwork, and analytical topics.
Does Analysis Group follow a hybrid work model? Does it allow the flexibility to work fully remotely?
Being together in the office allows us to take an active part in the exceptional collaboration, mentorship, networking, and cultural cohesion that makes Analysis Group such a special place. Working together in person fosters greater career growth and allows us to support each other more fully as well. As a result, we believe it is best for employees to work together in the office most of the time. We also know that flexibility and the ability to work remotely some of the time is important to many of us. Most of our employees can be successful while working in the office at least three days a week and working remotely one or two days a week much of the time.
