    Entretien de Chief Enterprise Architect

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - New York, NY (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en août 2017.

    Entretien

    Interviews are easy but ton of interviews and no timeline for feedback and next steps. After 3 interviews and positive feedback, i lost my interest overall. U end up following up on weekly basis and then recruiter will follow and then u may get an answer. Sometime it feels like they are just creating a pipeline but have no interest in hiring. When u ask the leaders on their pipeline and growth then same conflicting answers and someone may get offended as well. So basically after spending good 3 months I gave up. Didnt want to waste my time with an organization who doesnt know where they are heading towards.

    Entretien

    There is no other way to describe this than slow and painful. Once you get an interview, there are weeks of silence. This is followed by a hurried next interview. A required trip to New York office to meet face-to-face. All others are done via video. In total, 6 months from first interview to start date.

    • Typical background questions. Then there will be one case study where the interviewer will ask a question concerning a current problem they are facing and get your thoughts on it.   1 réponse

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +8 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en juin 2018.

    Entretien

    I was contacted for an initial 1 hour HR screen. After a month had a 1 hour technical interview. After a week, I was invited onsite for an in person technical interview. From here the process was horrendous. HR took their sweet time to respond and expected you to be available for travel at a moments notice. What they failed to realize is that the prospective employee has other commitments to their family, current clients, and current job. The worst part was after a month of silence from BCG-Platinion's HR, they would respond by saying "sorry I was caught up with other e-mails. This shows a lack of respect for the candidate's time and lack of priority management on BCG-Platinion's part.

    Entretien

    Excellent communication and careful attention to detail. I interviewed with 6 people total, including Senior Consultants, Associate Directors and Managing Directors. I learned a great deal about the organization, and found each person to be very generous with their time and thoughtful in their responses to my questions.

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    I was initially contacted by their external headhunter and they would like to learn more about my skills & it brought my interest for me to interview with them (I was not intending to leave my current company); First interview was a phone
     call with the headhunter, general HR questions and very standard process; Then I did a phone interview, 2 WebEx sessions and in person interview with them in the office. It took about 3 months from the moment they contacted me till the final onsite interview and during the process they moved around and reschedule the interview so many times !! One interviewer was even late for 15 mins and I was very busy with my client work back then; They have only about 50 employees in the US and their salary offering is even lower than what I made, in the end, their HR called me and informed me that they thought my skill is not deep enough for their need without specifying what kind of skill I'm lacking; Please note that Platinion is not really BCG and they have just started their practice in the US and their brand is not really known in many countries; So even though they extended me an offer I would not accept, but for someone who likes new changes in an unknown world I think it would be a great opportunity.

    Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en avril 2019.

    Entretien

    The normal hiring process consists of 2 rounds each with 2 interviews (incl. a case in every interview in Englisch and German). My first two interviews were in Frankfurt/Main with a SC and Manager. Both were very kind and seemed knowledgeable in their respective areas. Cases were both from the energy sector (e.g., vendor selection for IT Outsourcing). The second round was in Köln with a SC and MD. Again both were very kind (!) and seemed interested in you as an applicant. One case was again from the energy sector and focused around IT Cost reduction. Although each interviewer tried to artificially increase the stress in each interview every question as well as the case itself was fair (however the twists were sometimes a bit tricky).

    For case preparation I would suggest to thoroughly study BCG and PLA offerings/publications /websites and the like.

    I had the feeling that personal questions centered more around personal motivation (motivation to work in consulting generally and BCG PLA especially) than around direct cultural fit questions .

    In general the hiring process overall was fast. HR is very quick in responding to your requests and setting up interviews.

    Entretien de Manager

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +5 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en avril 2016.

    Entretien

    Extremely disorganized - I was interviewed by 7 folks at various levels from Managers to the lead of the practice. The process took 5 months - after the second or third interview, I kept hearing that there will only be one more round before the offer would be made. Towards the end I was exhausted and felt like I was just wasting my time and energy. Eventually with the last interview, I was told I would not be a good fit for something very basic and high-level on my resume that should have been seen right in the first round.

    Overall, what appealed to me was that they were associated with the BCG brand. However, they are not doing similar work as BCG (it pure implementations) and more crucially, they are still in infancy. Through the process, I got conflicting answers from the leadership on their growth plans which made me uncomfortable.
    My advice to anyone interviewing - get a clear understanding of the interview process upfront (i.e. how long, how many interviews, etc.) in order to not waste your time. Also, ask probing questions about their pipeline, growth plans and strategy in North America

    The process was really good, the recruiter always answered my queries to the point. The only thing that I felt could be better was the amount of time it took right from the 1st call with the recruiter to the final offer.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +8 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Platinion (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en septembre 2018.

    Entretien

    took 8+ months. Painful, unnecessarily long, inefficient, and extremely inconsiderate. The following illustrates the interview process I went through in detail:

    - Had 4 initial interviews over the course of 3 months - they had constant scheduling conflicts. Their internal recruiters would disappear for weeks with no feedback, or updates and reappear again, all the while telling my recruiter they were interested in me.

    - at the 4th month, they told me they were interested in me, but didn’t have an official JD open/posted, and had to create one. However, there were no timelines set for this activity when my recruiter and me asked. It took another 2 months to create a role.

    - After the JD was created, I was told I needed to speak to the CEO for a final conversation. However, it was never scheduled and there was no update when my recruiter tried to get information other than the excuse of scheduling conflicts.

    - 1 month later, I was told I need to start the process all over again from the beginning, for a role that’s a level below where I’m at currently in my career. I still went through with interviewing because I was interested in the work and figured if everything else fit, its about the work, not the title. I double checked if the salary I initially presented was still not a problem, and was told it wouldn’t be.

    - It took another 1.5 months to schedule a “first round.” I presented my portfolio to 12 people, and received positive feedback a week later. I was told I would be set up to speak with 2 more people, one of whom was with my very first interviewer.

    - I waited for a week for them to schedule it, after them sending an check in email that they were just coordinating calendars.

    - 2 weeks later I was told they were “still interested", but asked if I would consider a role 2 levels lower that my current position. FYI: I have 12+ years of experience having sold hundreds of millions of dollars of work, and worked on 30+ Fortune 50 clients, having worked for some well known companies. I understand they hire talented people, but asking at this point in the process was insulting and inconsiderate. I stopped the process from continuing.

    In summary, this is the worst recruiting/interviewing process I've ever encountered or heard about.
