Firsthand Findings

Employee Reviews

  • “Ability to help organizations develop and adopt powerful creative and innovative strategies to navigate the changing and converging business landscape driven by technology and disruption.”

  • “Besides legacy, structure, experience in delivering high quality work (which all consulting firms may be able to provide), ADL tends to be very frank and transparent in its dealings with clients - especially if we don't know the answer to a client question. I've interacted with many consulting firms who tend to override or force a solution to a client, whereas ADL will never do that by design.”

  • “If a candidate believes in hard work as an individual or team member, is open to developing new innovative ideas and has entrepreneurship as a core characteristic that defines her or his way of working, then my firm is the right one to join.”

  • “This is a fair and fast-moving firm. Great colleagues and a genuine supportive environment but it’s left to the individual to stake their claim. It’s not for everyone but for those that like a challenge, have an opinion and are not afraid to share it and want to be at the leading edge of business problems then ADL is a great environment to grow.”

  • “Very innovative and entrepreneurial with a 'get stuff done' attitude - we don't hide behind PowerPoint and we roll up our sleeves and work side by side with clients.”

Why Work Here

ADL is an entrepreneurial company - we are the oldest management consulting firm but we are not trapped by process or tradition. For our business model, this means flexibility of approach – rather than just charge our clients by the hour, we may enter into partnerships with them. We eagerly transfer our knowledge to clients while learning from their insight and experience. This is also reflected in the way we work as a team – we value initiative and are always open to new ideas. Every path is possible, and we encourage our people to explore different industries beyond their specializations and work across disciplines.

Getting Hired Here

  • “ADL, in my view, seeks people who are excellent team players and are behaviorally teamwork driven. This is true across levels and especially so at the senior levels. Beyond the obvious requirements from Management Consulting (Structuring, Communication, Ideation), the firm, given its size, needs to preserve its core cultural values and places strong emphasis on working well within the team. An example of this is in the interview process - around 20-30% of interview scoring is necessarily mandated to be behavioral.”

  • “Interview process is quite structured and covers the needed capability assessment for selecting that candidate who is entrepreneurial and innovative with the ability to link these traits to strategy development.”

  • “Our process is focused on identifying candidates who are natural presenters, highly adaptable and who exhibit grace under fire.”

  • “The usual interviewing process consists of five interviews with consulting staff of increasing seniority. Cases vary widely from interviewer to interviewer and are usually based on real projects. Due to the high volume of applicants, the callback and interviewing timelines can sometimes be long. The ideal candidate is strong analytically, with inherent structuring skills. He is able to communicate well and build good/ friendly relationships with the team and client. Most importantly, he should display an ability to learn quickly and curiosity to do so.”

  • “We have been working intensively to streamline our interview process to enhance candidate experience. We are quick and very strong on that end. In total 5-6 interviews in three rounds, callback within 1-2 days after each round.”
