Slow as hell. You’re not out until they say you’re out. Main cause of delay is likely staffing capacity. It’s generally tougher to kick off new projects this time of the year as clients usually get budget refreshes in the beginning of the next FY. Tldr: they may be waiting to assign you a project before you get on the payroll.


Thank you , that’s helpful !

It took 2 weeks of me prodding before they said no LOL

EY is so slow. I heard back a month after my first round 🙄

I got a call from the recruiter immediately the next day that they will make me an offer but formal offer letter took a month.

On a second thought, If it’s a sexual harassment issue, maybe a year.

Hi team I recently got approached by a HR from Mars for a role based out of Germany. However, it seemed that she wasn't aware that I am an international candidate applying for the role even though my location was specified clearly in the application process. Does anyone know if Mars recruits non eu candidates ? The role really fits my skillsets and it would be a pity if they do not go ahead with the process just because I am a non-eu candidate.
