How often should you check in with a recruiter if they haven’t been responsive? Is it bad to reach directly to the hiring manager?

Reaching out directly to the hiring manager would generally be frowned upon (beyond a thank you note). If there is a prior relationship with the hiring manager it’s a different story, but generally the recruiters see this as going around them and can get pissed off. I generally check in directly following interviews and follow up approx three days later if there is no response. Unfortunately a good deal of the recruiters at agencies are somewhat un-professional and slow to respond. In cases where I am being ghosted, I reach out and note (in a diplomatic way) that the non responsiveness appears to indicate that the position did not go my way. This has almost always worked to get a response and recently helped me to move forward and schedule the second round of interviews

It is disheartening, almost depressing, to see how many friends - good, smart people - have quit/are leaving Deloitte because of the "pay em the bare minimum" attitude. Unfortunately we are headed down the path of "if you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys". Isn't consulting about hiring, training, and retaining smart people? Good luck Deloitte.

I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
