not sure if it's because I don't think a case interview is not a real project or what. Anyone been through something similar and worked through it?

Definitely been there. It can feel so artificial. Bombed an interview at MBB. In the ones that went better I just said F it and thought out loud and powered through the cases.

Considering role at KPMG just found out from the offer that I wouldn't get any 401k match until 2 years which wasn't mentioned in interviews just that benefits offer 6% and didn't specify how eligibility works?

Are other firms more competitive, I'm following up with pending offers from Deloitte and PWC, do they do the same?

Ever have an interview so bad you felt almost good about it? The recruiter started our conversation venting about a referral who was grossly under qualified. This immediately shifted to the agency does not follow industry standard titles. They are all very senior...so I should consider a much more junior role (they hadn't talked more about the role at hand). After talking of my experience they then summed me up as a "media person" and I had to correct that I never worked at a media agency.
