Any updates on the hiring freeze?

I was interviewing with several firms and was told they are all freezing hiring and haven’t heard back yet. EY, PwC, West Monroe, Accenture.

I didn’t apply to Deloitte so idk lol

Based on the projections we’ve been doing the freezes will stay in effect for a long time. This is not a good time to enter the consulting business and I’ve been advising applicants (off the record) to look into other industries. It’s going to take a while to recover from all this (think years).

How’s Deloitte?

I am in GPS for Deloitte and although we are slowing down hiring a lot there are some still in the que with skills we need that will still be getting an offer letter either this month or in May. But I suspect offers will be few and far between

GPS and Commercial are different worlds. Commercial is getting hit really hard as many of our clients are barely surviving.

I mean, PwC still has open reqs and I conducted an interview for an M in my group. Any freeze we have is more of a "be smart about hiring" situation rather than an all out freeze

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it?

Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
