Interviewing at Deloitte and got an email saying they’re working on finalizing details and approvals and want me to meet with a few other folks in the meantime (I’ve already had 3 interviews). This totally sounds to like an offer is on the way but maybe I’m wrong? Anyone have experience/insight into what exactly this means? I’m just trying to figure out if it’s time to get excited or if I should keep my expectations low so I don’t get disappointed.

Thinking about applying to AlixPartners. But I see a lot of people on Glassdoor saying that after months of interviews, they were told they were rejected solely based on the psychological assessment without much insight into why, or for seemingly counterintuitive reasons. How often does it happen that you're rejected outright because of that? How holistic is it? What is being selected for or against?

I interviewed with Slalom Consulting a few of months ago and cleared all 6 rounds. They were going to make an offer but later, the HR got back to me and said, a few projects were pushed back and so they are delaying the offer until those projects are finalized. I followed up again and she finally said, they aren't looking to hire until the end of August.
I don't want to sound desperate. Last followed up end of June. This is for the Marketing Cloud practice on the Global team.
