Please describe the interview / hiring process.

Applied online and through a referral as an experienced hire for the SF office. Had a phone interview with HR to gauge my interest and was invited to interview in-person the following week. First round was in NYC (where I live) consisting of two case interviews with two separate interviewers, with a few minutes at the beginning for a few behavioral questions. Both cases were pleasant though one of the interviewers didn't really transition from the behavioral portion to the case, she kinda just dove right in without saying anything. Advanced to the final round in SF which consisted of a written case and regular case with a managing partner and principal. Written case interview was about 20 slides which I had 45 minutes to go through and create a presentation to my interviewer. The other case was a normal case with a few behavioral questions. Ended up not getting the offer because I was a bit clunky in the second case though I was invited to reapply in 6 months.
