How long has it been, OP?

It’s changed quite a bit and not really. You might have 4-6 interviews to get to final offer, but they typically aren’t all back-to-back in a single interview day.

Adobe, Facebook, MasterCard, McKinsey, Fitbit/Google, or PWC? No offers yet from any of these places but in interview stages with all. Ready to leave Accenture plus i don’t think my m3 comp is overly competitive. Not terrible but i think any of these would pay higher.

Curious if folks have any opinions on the companies listed? I recognize some of these are apples to oranges. Roles are either consulting manager or program management type positions.
