Flunked out during final rounds at Deloitte and PwC recently. Interviewed with A&M and received an offer with a handsome increase. I was barely asked any questions during the interview process and I am starting to wonder if: a.) there’s a push for minority hires b.) the job is going to be some bs. 🧐🤔

If a., So what? If b., Those other jobs could also be BS, so what?. You're interviewing so clearly your current job is BS, so take the money and make the most of it. Congrats 👏🏿

Have you come red with A&M current or former employees? Even if this isn't a place you want to stay long, if it helps you further your mid or long term goals, go for it. It's amazing how much you can spin your experience in an interview. And if you've got the nice salary bump, that's a fact, not a desired range anymore. If you do go ahead and it does turn out to be not great, pack up and leave in a year. (Or sooner as most consulting firms won't mind 1-2 short stints on a resume if you're a solid candidate)

You got lucky with an easy interview. Don't read too much into it. And there is enough bs at big 4 that you shouldn't be scared of A&M, but I have heard that their wlb isn't great.

Which group, PEPI?

I took the interview with Delloite USI and cleared all rounds. After getting prehire mail I shared all requested documents but didn't hear from them after that even after follow-ups. After 2 months recruiter replied and told me that I am referred for post of technology analyst by interviewer though already an AC in Infosys. Anyone had any idea are they not aware of my position before they interviewed me and why they didn't share offer letter.

A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?
