You got a “verbal” offer before you had a series of interviews? The above doesn’t really make too much sense. And people not having any time for 3 months (quarter of a year), doesn’t make sense / seems like a lead on / red flag.

This sounds like a "you didn't get this role, but we like you so let's find you a role" situation. Is this the case? Are they trying to place you in a team or did you get an offer for a specific team/role and they haven't been able to nail down start date? Both are red flags TBH

How desperate are you to leave? Apply some pressure tell them you have competing offers and need clear written next steps by end of next week.

Do you want this job that bad that you waited three months

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?

I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.

This is going to sound crazy - has anyone ever encounter another person showing up for the job on day one? 😕 I really don’t think this is the guy we interviewed on Zoom (for an IT position). I’ve kept it to myself so far. We are now on day three. Don’t know what I should do.
