Well at Deloitte - we’re like really selective. Like harder to get in here than Harvard. So, like, take your shot but don’t be down if it doesn’t pan out 💫

Nothing worth doing is easy, and no ... without PPMD sponsorship, getting hired by D is not easy regardless of background. Can’t speak for other firms

The real question is why?

I’m sorry - I used to be a rainmaker at Bain and tried applying to Deloitte (one of the big 4 [should be DMBB in actuality]), and was unfortunately turned down. I think I just wasn’t good enough 😔. I would suggest trying EY, PWC, or whatever the other one is. Don’t even waste your time with Deloitte unless you know someone higher up. Good luck to you!

Seriously, why?

These comments gotta be a joke. I don’t know about easy but def doable. Maybe easy depending on your skills

Wtf

Arguing with children is always interesting ... at the end of the day, companies only spend so much on consulting. We own most of that spend, globally, full stop. That said, we don’t hire a lot of people from other firms. We just don’t need to. So ... feel free to tell us all what you thought was true because you heard about it on campus, but that’s not the reality we live in

Silly Consultant 1, the big D doesn’t need a recruiting team; people line up out the door to join. It’s harder than Harvard remember.

Hi fishes, I received an offer from big 4 with 60% hike. My managers wants to retain and I asked them to match if you want me to be retained. Now I got a call from GPM yesterday. He used harsh words like "being greedy" "selfish" etc and offered me 30% in the end. I politely declined but he asked me to reconsider as he said "it would be unfair for the org for you to leave so soon." Let me know a proper response. Also what do you think of this behavior by GPM?
