Fortunately, I never got that question in my interviews. But someone suggested before to somehow repackage your strength as a weakness so that it’s a weakness but it’s not that much of a weakness if you think about it. And also always end with how you’re trying to improve it.

E.g - I’m really good at digging deep into any topic but sometimes I forget to explore broadly because I get too carried away. I try to remember and stop myself when I can and make sure I consider other related details.

I got to the next round once by answering that question with: "I can't breath underwater."

Hi guys,
Quess Corp. had scheduled some interviews for me with MasterCard which I've already cleared. Quess people are saying I'll be under Quess payroll but will actually be working for MasterCard as client and after 6 months MasterCard might take me on their payroll by evaluating my performance.
I'm just worried because I haven't heard much about Quess.
Should I go for this opportunity?

Option 2: Deloitte has an established team albeit pretty siloed with their sub offerings within the larger service offering. They offer more for a tenured manager I guess c.mid 70s starting

Option 3: Stay back at EY, look to make SM in Oct 2023. Take the hike/correction this yr. Been wth the firm 5 yrs
