Official communication is that there are no changes and that the financial position of the firm is strong. However, I know of at least one offer that has been rescinded (post MBA). On the other hand, I also know a person that is currently being interviewed for a position, so I am not 100% sure

Alright ! Thanks :)

Same here! I’m supposed to join in August in Dubai’s office and I will be moving from Canada. But I’m quite scared it would get rescinded🤞
