A referral at BCG guarantees a resume review if the employee uses the internal referral system. Whether that leads to an interview isn't guaranteed.

A high level referral (senior partner) guarantees an interview in any firm.

I assume if you’re referred you at least get a screen at most companies, but you still have to be qualified to get an interview

Anyone here work at Fractal Analytics want to speak about their experiences? It’s seems like a cool opportunity but the recruiter Has been very... “off”. He takes about 16 hours to respond to an email, has ghosted one interview without apologizing and will ask me what time I’m available multiple times before scheduling (usually outside of the availability I gave him). I’m wondering if the whole company is like this because it seems grossly unprofessional.

How much is too much reaching out? Some context: I’m on the bench and I spoke to my SM about my availability on a Monday. They say they will find me some work. But I don’t hear from him at all. When do I reach out and how often should I follow up until he actually gives me what I need. The layoffs here at Accenture has me stressing over WBS codes so much.
