I have interviewed a few folks coming in as associates or seniors. More so for overall fit on our team. Agree with others, with such large companies I don’t really see my peers as direct competition. But maybe I should 😂...

OP - Big 4 are big enough to where no new single candidate is “competition”. What does matter is the maturity and experience of the interviewer. Seniors don’t usually make the cut

Dang. 1st rounds are really just an intro at D.
Did they say why you didn’t move past?

I was allowed to interview folks when I was a senior during my promotion year to manager. Strictly on their technical skills to see if they would fit the needs so this might be a similar case?

Same here. Of course if they just seemed to be a terrible fit for any reason I did have the power to say no and stop the whole process.

Yes

At K we have peer interviews to gauge culture fit

I get the peer interview aspect. But I usually experience those near the end of a series of interviews to assess fit and how the candidate would interact with peers. This was the first interview and was strictly a case (no behavioral questions). @D2 I think that’s true to a certain extent but it depends on how large the sub group is within your advisory/consulting industry focus. The team I was interviewing with was very specialized so I could still see there being direct competition. On to the next one

☹️

It’s less about you being competition and more about you being dead weight

So I've been offered a "promotion" a transfer with in the company from a lower performing store in KY to a flagship store in PA. Obviously a stipend and significant raise would be a part of this. I have so many reasons to say no and they all seem logical to me but I guess I need reassurance that I'm not making a bad decision if I decline.

I should add I've also been job hunting the past few months and considering leaving the company.
