Used to do recruiting for my former group at PwC. Any candidate would talk to at least 3 partners. So I wouldn’t say it’s a signal, but it seems to be the final round.

No. In my experience you’ll always talk to multiple partners regardless.

4 partners! Which practice and what level? I interviewed on audit senior and it was only a SM and a Partner. If it’s a week already, def follow up with the recruiter

I believe almost all the big4 will do final round interviews with 2-4 partners. Doesn’t really mean much.

Don’t be concerned, in my experience it takes a week or two get your offer package approved. I’d follow up with HR still

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
