- When should I submit my application?
- Analysis Group accepts applications at any time. Our primary recruiting cycle for full-time opportunities begins in September and concludes in March. Internship recruiting begins in October and concludes in March.
- Are there opportunities to work remotely at Analysis Group?
- At AG, we are committed to developing and retaining talent, and want to foster an environment in which we are as happy and productive as possible. To that end, we believe that it’s best for us to be together in the office most of the time, and that our collective presence in the office is vitally important for the collaboration, mentorship, networking, and cultural cohesion that make AG such a special place. We also believe that over the long term, most of us will have more career growth and offer better support to one another if we are in the office a significant amount.
We also know that flexibility and the ability to work remotely some of the time are important to many of us. Therefore, while our center of gravity is largely in our offices, most employees may work remotely one to two days a week, most of the time. Employees are also able to temporarily work fully remotely for extended periods of time. Such arrangements are handled on an individual basis.
- What if I am interested in applying to multiple locations?
- Please list your geographic preferences in your cover letter and our online application to be considered for multiple locations.
- What types of cases does each office work on?
- You can find work examples for each office location, or explore our various practices.
- What should candidates expect from the analyst and associate interview process?
- The first-round interview will be a behavioral interview conducted over the phone or on campus. Analysis Group does not conduct case interviews.
- Associate: In general, the interview will consist of four to eight meetings with consultants in both formal and conversational settings. There is variation in the final-round interview process depending on your degree type. Throughout your interviews, you should expect questions about your experience (research and prior work and internship experiences), leadership and collaboration style, and career interests. Ph.D. candidates are asked to present on their research with a job talk presentation. Please be prepared to talk through your experiences highlighting your critical thinking, analytical, and interpersonal skill sets.
- Analyst: The final-round interview will consist of meetings with roughly three to five consultants. Throughout your interviews, you should expect questions about your research, prior work and internship experience, teamwork and leadership, and career interests. Please be prepared to talk through your own experience working on a research or quantitative project, such as a project that involved analyzing quantitative data, a task from an internship that involved building a financial model, or a research paper that you wrote for a college course.

- How does Analysis Group support workplace diversity?
- We believe that a diverse workforce directly supports our goal to provide the highest quality work for our clients, which drives our commitment to ensure equal opportunities regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, race, color, or religion. We attract a diverse, international pool of top talent from across the globe and invest in visa support for new hires. Our employees come from over 40 countries, speak more than 40 languages, and actively seek transfer opportunities across our 14 global offices. In addition, we are expanding our diversity hiring and employee development efforts through building relationships with organizations that specialize in recruiting, training, and coaching minorities, including Management Leadership for Tomorrow, and provide further support through our LGBTQ inclusion group. Our collaborative culture helps ensure that employees from all backgrounds contribute equally and meaningfully to our work. Of note, our firm has been led by a female CEO for nearly two decades.
- What does Analysis Group do to support work-life balance?
- We strive to ensure that our employees maintain a healthy balance between work and life outside the office. That’s why we sponsor sports teams and fun events for our employees, and offer benefits that include tuition and fitness reimbursement, backup child care, and eldercare. We also offer annual holiday and summer parties open to families and guests, as well as annual ski trips to resorts such as Stowe, Steamboat, Lake Placid, or Tahoe, where transportation, lodging, meals, and ski/spa packages are provided free of cost to employees. We also encourage employees to design events for their peer groups.
- Does Analysis Group hire foreign nationals to work in its offices?
- Yes, Analysis Group will sponsor work authorization. We have a full-time immigration specialist who works closely with candidates and employees who require visa or work permit support.
- Does work authorization impact your hiring decisions?
- We hire many foreign nationals and support many new employees through the visa and work permit process. We are proud to employ a diverse, international pool of top talent from across the globe and believe this diversity strengthens our firm. We do, however, consider work authorization as a factor in the recruiting process, and there are times when it can play a role in hiring decisions.
