This is correct, I think some years are better with full time too. I’ve heard full times adds another 10-15 people so I’d call it 45-50 people land MBB. Also true, once you get the interview it’s just a matter of performance. You’re competing against everyone

1) You can re-recruit but you have a deadline to accept the return offer that usually is before FT recruiting. If you decide to accept the return offer, re-recruit and then reneg pretty sure you risk losing all offers if you piss off the company you reneged

2) For MBB once you have the interview it’s about performance. They are hiring to a standard if you meet that standard then you’ll get an offer, they don’t say we had 10 great interviews but 5 slots, only give out 5 offers. The standard usually works out that they don’t over-recruit. The filtering for number of slots happens at the getting interview stage not during the interview

Planning to leave PwC. I have two offers that I need to respond to tomorrow. Both are for the same base pay (higher than what I make now)and similar other benefits. Everyone I interviewed with was great. The role at the first company likely has little room for growth but the tasks I feel I could do easily. Work life balance would be amazing. The second company I’d be the first dedicated tax person for the public corporation. Both companies Glassdoor ratings are around 4. Which would you choose?!

I’ve been interviewing for roles for about 8 weeks. I’ve probably had about 20 “initial conversations” & have got to the final round of approx 6 roles - most of which have been 5-6 interviews long, with take home assessments or presentations. It’s been exhausting. After final round, they’ve all gone with other candidates. I’m now looking at potentially doing some interview training as I feel like I must be doing something wrong at this final stage. Has anyone done this before & can recommend?
