I thought I bombed my case but still ended up getting an offer ... you never know!

OP - I think I had good structure throughout the rest of the cases and had the right approach for math, just poor execution. And sorry to hear about that experience - I’ve been through similar and what’s helped me is to talk through the data out loud. So I’ll say “what I’m seeing is X and Y, which means Z but I’m not completely sure what A means, could it possibly be B?” And let them course correct if I’m off. Definitely easier said than done but I think just sharing your thought process can go a long way. Definitely DM me if you want to chat more, I’ve gone through a few final rounds and didn’t succeed until I had a few “unlocks” in how I approach cases recently.

I’m a Deloitte alumni. The attached image is on brand. While there are pockets of excellence & collegial respect at D - overall, D culture is toxic, particularly for people of color, Black people, & non-binary people. So, if you fall in any one of those groups, & you are told/wondering if you are being “sensitive” or “overreacting” to what you’re seeing,hearing, & sensing-I can assure you that you aren’t. Get what you can from the firm (experiences/certs) & pivot to something better.

Working for the toxic Deloitte environment was really traumatic for me and many of my colleagues. It took a long time to get over that weekly Sunday depression that kicked in from me dreading having to go back into the office on Mondays. As part of the great resignation class of 2020, I salute those who jumped from that chaotic environment and into industry roles while living their wildest professional dreams. For all those looking to join Deloitte as a potential employer, look elsewhere.
