Heard that Deloitte Consulting is having a hiring freeze. Is it true?

Which city, @d5?


Deloitte laid off a bunch of people last week. Makes sense.

I've heard some service areas have hiring freezes but not all

(Again, rumors. Hopefully someone can clarify)

@D1, have you heard anything about HC? @Pwc1: I heard that as well. I'm wondering if they mostly laid off poor performers or both poor and high performers due to headcount constraint.

There is a huge thread re: Deloitte layoffs. It was beyond poor performers. Even Deloitte HR opined on the thread.

@P1 wow. Let me see if I can find it. Thanks!

When is EY cutting .. Any news

Hiring freeze is typical at EOY. I know my area is looking to hire, though.

DD is hiring pretty ferociously although I'm not sure how that aligns with the low average utilization in the practice...

I follow that thread. How do you know that was HR that responded? These anonymous apps, anyone could say they are anyone.

What is the title of the thread?

Only HR could offer a deep well-reasoned analysis on potential for future staffing.

Deloitte layoffs in HC were all performance related. We are still hiring but slow and mostly SC level

Is this federal, commercial, or both?

Partner bragged about referring two employees to our industry but is sad they don't get a referral bonus.
Just realized that they could have literally given any staff or senior these people's resume to refer them, and gotten them a referral bonus. Meanwhile they're working hard to hopefully get a few people on our team bonuses of a few grand, while warning it might not actually work out.

This supports my theory that partners are out of touch/ have forgotten how to creatively solve problems.

What are some not obvious questions that I can be asked / I can ask?


Attended interview for a role at PWC and after director round of interview, I was called by recruiter to tell me that interview was positive but there is no definitive answer since they are looking for more senior role and also they may shift resources internally and that there may be chance in the future.
