SOS!!!! I just got an offer for a customer consulting role for Financial Services at PwC but I felt that the interview process was too easy. It was 3 conversations on mostly behavioral questions when I was expecting for it to a bit deeper or to be given cases. Any PwC folks have similar experiences? Worried of the talent I’d be working with or if this is the kind of consulting that I want (similar to MBB)

Have an upcoming interview for Tech strategy consultant with Deloitte as an EH. Recruiter mentioned 1 case and 2 behavioral interviews. Really appreciate if someone can share their experience and also touch on the following - 1) Case - will this be tech focused or random case interview?

Appreciate a couple of examples Thanks and apologies for cross posting here
