Just recently went through this, and it took almost 3 weeks. But finally starting at EY this coming Monday!

Yes, business case approval is required for the offer letter and it took forever for the recruiter to get back to me! Just keep checking with the recruiter to stay on top of it! It can take up to 2-3 weeks!

I actually had my offer pulled due to lack of projects. I’ve heard this happen to others as well.

No had not signed it - the offer comes after they put together a business case for why you are joining (e.g. what project you will be on). Lost the project offer never came thru. Worked out because I’m making significantly more now but was a pain in the ass at the time

SC2- are you saying the business case fell through after the verbal?

SC2: Had you signed your offer letter already before they pulled?

SC2: sorry to hear that but glad you got a better gig!

@OP: How long before your first day did you get details for your first day/oboarding? I’m starting in 2 weeks and I haven’t heard anything since I completed the EY Tour online

@C1 I got the details about a week and half before. It was part of the second part of the EY Tour online, which came about a week after I completed the first part

Over the last year I’ve had 4 separate interview cycles where after the final round I’ve gotten “you had all strong feedback but the team went with the other candidate.” It’s really insulting to hear these companies say that there isn’t enough qualified black candidates but have your own experience show you that you can do everything right but still you don’t get the offer due to not looking the part I guess
