My experience was:

2nd round was 3 weeks after 1st round. Offer made same day as 2nd round.

2nd round for us is normally the week after, offer same day as 2nd round interview (occasionally offer comes early the following week)

Don’t read into the date at all - was just saying I have typically seen recruiting try to schedule it the following week. For what it’s worth - my 2nd round interview was 5 weeks after my initial because of a work trip from my previous job and then limited interviewer availability on BCG’s side.

Adjacent question, is this similar for BCG?

How long does it take to get the first recruiter screen and thereafter 1st round of interviews from the resume drop / referral? For both McK and BCG

Bcg2, what is the recommended timeframe before one should follow up after a referral is made but recruiter has not yet reached out? Also, ok to network with office people meanwhile? Thanks

I hope there is some scam going on in the name of Fujitsu India consulting.
Last week I got selected and they collected documents after week they rejected saying high expectations. Earlier they accepted for same salary hike.

Same happened for my friend today. He also got selected and they collected all the acedemic , previous company documents salary slips and they rejected him saying same.

They could have told the same when they ask for salary expectations. I feel something fishy.
