I'm here and our process took forever. We had a recent candidate that we all loved, take 6 months. We only got him bc his brother was here. EY is on the whole, terrible at this. Deloitte processed me end-to-end in 30 days

They need metrics. First contact -days to second contact - days to schedule phone interviews-days to in person - days to offer, etc. Each step needs clear ownership and targets with a goal of onboarding a new candidate for day 1, in less than 60 days for manager and below. This isn't that difficult. Then we need to overhaul training and staffing. ACP should be destroyed and rolled into competency / sector. There needs to be ownership and accountability from the go-to-market partners for their people and their utilization / performance. This doesn't really exist today.

EY is bad but PWC was also terrible. A counselee interviewed and they told him they would extend an offer when the role opened up. Don't execute an interview process if you don't have a position. Deloitte and McKinsey had the best process that I went through

Any thoughts or words of wisdom on this?

So just interviewed for a Revenue Agent position supposed to receive initial offer within the next couple of weeks based on what the manager was saying. Part of me definitely likes the idea of a 40hr work week with no other crazy obligations/metrics or needing to do extracurricular stuff to get a bump in pay. The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?

Question for TSG folks - I'm considering applying to TSG. Do I have to use a recruiter (external or internal) or can I apply on my own? I think I can have more bargaining power if I apply on my own without having the recruiter in the middle since TSG would have to pay them too, right?
