What are the best and worst things about your job?

The best things are the variety of things you do on a daily basis and the amount you learn and the diversity of skills you pick up in a very short period of time - lots of days I leave work having learned how to do something I didn't know how to do the day before. You constantly push your own limits professionally.

Application Advice:

Prepare! Do practice case studies before the real deal. Always think before you speak - this is a skill which not many people naturally have, make sure to practice it before you do an interview. Always sense-check your answers - is what you are saying reasonable? Does it make sense?

Interview Advice:

Interviews follow a pretty standard consulting interview pattern - CV chats, case studies, and finally a partner presentation with some prep time. Our interviewers are generally nice and helpful, we're not trying to make you fail. In general, being reasonable and showing you can think in a structured way is more important than getting to the right answer. Always read all the information you're given, ask sensible questions, sense-check your answers, and engage with the interviewer. Preparation is key: practice mental maths (especially under pressure!), case studies, as well as open-ended qualitative "so what" questions. Make sure to prepare for the CV chat as well. Lots of people struggle providing coherent answers to very simple questions. Even if a question is straightforward and you know what you'd like to answer, take a second to structure your response before you launch into it. And finally, be friendly and communicative! We are looking for nice colleagues who are capable of working in teams. Not being able to take direction from the interviewer, or not being able to ask sensible questions if you're unsure of something, is a bad sign.

Numerical skills are very important.

Application Advice:

Be clear on why you're applying to Teneo Consulting, rather than to any other consulting firm - we try to stand out from the rest, so tell us why you've chosen us in particular!

Apply to attend the Introduction to Strategy session held at the Teneo Consulting office - this is a good opportunity to learn more about what we do, and to show your interest in the role.

Interview Advice:

You can never practice enough case studies! The more you've done (preferably with someone who works at a consulting firm), the more confident and relaxed you'll be in the interview.

In your CV, make sure you spell out any positions of responsibility that you have held (e.g. President of a Student society).

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, and try to relax - you'll come across better.
In the market sizing exercise take a moment at the start to take a deep breath and take a step back. Make sure you talk your interviewer through the steps that you are taking to arrive at an answer and why you think those are the right steps to take.

Application Advice:

Double check everything for accuracy. Nothing is worse than having a great candidate that has put the wrong company on their application.
Also - don't make it really long, all consulting firms receive thousands of these, and it pays to make yours 'to the point'.

Interview Advice:

Do your preparation on both the company and case studies - it will pay off. Practice your basic maths because even if you do a 'numerical' degree, the basics can slip.

Application Advice:

Bone up on how to approach case studies - we want to see how you think not what you already know on a specific subject. Also, try and be clear on what it is about Credo specifically you like, not consulting in general.

Application Advice:

Prepare fully for the case studies and interviews. The more practice you do, the more comfortable you will feel in an interview.

Application Advice:

A short, concise cover letter which shows us how your skills and experiences make you a good strategy consulting candidate is far preferable to a long breakdown of your history. We have your CV for that!

Interview Advice:

Brushing up on arithmetic never hurts, whatever you studied. The same goes for case studies - you will get a lot better with practice, and it's an important part of the interview process.
Many people are not very familiar with Credo's core sectors when they apply, which is totally fine. However, an overall knowledge of business news and recent events will help you - it's good to be curious.

Application Advice:

Spend a little bit of time researching Credo, and have some genuine reasons why you want to work here.

Interview Advice:

Practice a few case studies and maths skills, and then in the interview just try to be yourself! Cultural fit is just as important a consideration as case skills.

Associate Consultant, at Teneo Consulting (formerly Credo)
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The two key things are 1) having a clear idea of what you bring to the table and why you'd want to work for us and 2) practice case studies (including mental arithmetic). Good preparation shows that you're serious about applying and helps you perform better in interview.

Interview Advice:

The first round has three parts: 1) A relaxed CV chat where it's best to just be yourself and help us get to know you better, your motivations for applying, and what you've done up to this point. 2) A math test where you should be ready for simple data manipulation (GMAT practice questions are good for this). 3) A case study where the best thing you can do is make sure you plan out your approach before diving in. A good, detailed, well thought through plan is very impressive and, should you not get to the end, gives us the chance to see where you were going and give you credit for it. It can also help to stop you rushing and allow you to catch important nuances you may otherwise have missed.

Application Advice:

Credo is looking for people who are engaging, smart and enthusiastic. Cultural fit is important, so try to let your personality come through a bit in your application.

Interview Advice:

You will have a case interview so would definitely recommend having a read of "Case of Point" before your interview.

Secondly, relax everyone at the company is nice and approachable so it shouldn't be too daunting an experience.

Application Advice:

Make sure you know why you want to go into Strategy Consulting, and don't obsess about case study practice too much! At the end of the day, it is about how well you can think on the spot rather than how well you have memorised frameworks.

Application Advice:

Take time on your cover letter. If you use a generic one it is easy to spot and you won't be invited to interview. The general rule is if you can swap out any mention of Credo with a rival consultancy and it still makes sense, then it isn't good enough. Do your research (whether it be on the website, from JobCrowd or coming and speaking to Credo people at a careers fair) and make it apparent that Credo is the place for you.

Interview Advice:

Interviews are generally split between CV chats and market sizing/case studies. For the latter, don't rush into an answer. Interviewers at Credo are looking for something that is considered and well thought out, not quick! Lay out your working, feel free to ask questions and take on any advice the interviewer gives you

Application Advice:

Make sure you are clear why you want to work for a small firm in your application. Make sure you understand the business and are highlighting the relevant skills and abilities that you have that would help you work for the business.

Interview Advice:

CV chat - make sure you understand Credo and are clear on what working for a smaller consultancy entails. Business questions are looking at your understanding of how a business works.
Market sizing/case studies - be familiar with the structure of these.
Don't let the maths test catch you out. You can use a calculator and the questions are largely business orientated.

Application Advice:

Make sure you research Credo and the sectors we tend to work in. There is plenty of information on the company website, but make sure you realise we don't normally work in FMCGs, for example.

Practise your maths and your market sizing/case studies. The market sizing/case studies especially need some time and are best practised with another person who has some sort of commercial experience, so they can challenge your assumptions.

Talk to some of the people at Credo first, and ask questions - no one will mind chatting to you, and in my opinion it's the best way to get to know the firm and the role.

Application Advice:

CVs should be laid out clearly. Go into detail on your work experience and extra-curriculars, pulling out any skills that you think are relevant to the job. Make sure you know about the company and the job you are applying for and tailor your application accordingly.

Interview Advice:

Consulting interviews will always include a case-study element. Take your time at the start to structure your thoughts and make sure you understand what the question is asking and how you plan to get to the answer before you start writing - remember that interviewers are not trying to catch you out, so listen to what they are saying. It's worth practising these in advance and there are books and websites dedicated to them, as well as examples on the career sections of most company websites.
For CV chats again try to structure your answers and keep them to the point. Having a grasp of big news stories can also be helpful.

Application Advice:

Ensure you know about the company and its sectors. Think about why you want to work for a company like this - size, focus, level of responsibility and the nature of the work (i.e. strategy rather than management)

Interview Advice:

Think carefully about the question before you dive in. Quick mental maths is key, so simplify as much as you feel is necessary to make the numbers easier (without over-doing it). Don't make silly errors with powers of 10, etc.
Think about pros and cons of working for a small company, so that it's clear you've thought about it properly.

Your CV should be easy to read, very clear, and highlight both what you think is interesting about yourself, and what you think your employer will want to know.

Interview Advice:

Consulting interviews often include market sizing/ case study-type questions. There are lots of books and websites offering advice and examples online. Make sure you practice. As for the CV interviews, make sure you keep it interesting, show your determination and show your interviewer you know why you're in the room.

Interview Advice:

I honestly think the key is to keep calm. Now that I know personally all of the people who interviewed me, I know how lovely they all are- it's hard to see why things seemed so stressful on the day.

Best:

Bright people, meritocratic and collaborative, good working culture and practices, good training opportunities

Worst:

There seems to be quite a lot of complacency around diversity - no one seems to mind that a majority of the employees are Oxbridge graduates. Can feel like an extension of college life.
