I’m interviewing with Accenture and the recruiter is taking a really long time to schedule my case interview. I keep getting updates that I’m definitely moving into the next round, but why the difficulty and delay getting this scheduled? Is this normal?

They just switched systems. They are working through it but I suspect this is causing some delays for you.

They invited me for interview and ghosted me twice. Can't take it seriously anymore...

The switch to Workday is a pain. Should be complete including training this week.

The recruiters are also sheparding the current new hires through the back ground checks.

I'm doing as many as 5 interviews a week, and I can't fit more in. We have several hundred openings and only a few MDs.

This is helpful. Thanks

I was approached and asked to interview for a lateral position. This was over a week ago. I sent my "thank you" emails and received a response from one partner stating something along the lines of, "great meeting you, I hope you accept the offer." Since then, I haven't heard a thing from the firm.

Am I still waiting? Do I follow up?

Question for MBB folks or those familiar: I did NOT go to a target school for undergrad but graduated top of my class and got promoted early twice to get to Manager in 4 years at PwC. Don’t like the idea of spending crazy amounts on an MBA to make the transition to MBB. Is getting hired there a realistic possibility without an MBA? I have solid product management experience in the FS space
