I was in a similar situation - I got a competing offer and suddenly the process picked up speed!


I’m in the final stages at Amazon too, but I haven’t brought this up with the recruiter cause the offer is not on the table yet but would you recommend I inform him?

I informed mine once I had a verbal offer. And he was able to expedite; he did need the written offer to increase the original offer

What role did u apply to

Ok TAM and TPM they hire in dime a dozen . They make the process stretched for reason so they can be choosey

It’s well known to be incredibly slow. The fact that you team matched within a month, and over the holidays at that, is actually incredibly fast. He can’t control the queue for HC and probably isn’t giving you tons of info because there’s no info to give.

OP if you’re following up and he doesn’t answer, he doesn’t have any news to give you. If you followed up 3 times for an HM interview, he was likely waiting for the HM to give him availability. HC gets cancelled or candidates don’t get through the queue ALL the time. It took me 3 weeks to get through because it was cancelled once, then my recruiter was OOO, then I was too far down the queue. It happens. Recruiters has dozens of people they’re working with, and scheduling interviews, HM meetings, working with HR… it’s a lot of emails and contact. They can’t get back to you immediately especially if they don’t have any updates.


Took me 6 months from first interview to signing

Seems like that’s standard then, I started the process in October……this is quite long for a company like Google….started the Amazon process in Jan and offer is coming next week

Also started the process in October, just wrapped up a final round and was told to wait another few weeks for a decision

Anyone from Deloitte ZS Strategy& / PwC could help with a referral? 9+ YoE in both big4 consulting and corp strategy with heavy focus on healthcare (providers primarily, value based care). Looking for roles that are mostly wfh/remote Deloitte PwC Strategy& ZS Associates


Big4 company wants me to tell my current employer (big client) that I am intending to join them and sort of get a soft approval. This is before even giving a written offer. I have no interaction with anyone from this Big4 co, nor has anyone associated with both companies has helped. This is all after interview, offer negotiation, offer approval. Does this happen? Seems like I wasted my time.


People realize the recession is only just starting right? So far we have only had a few rate rises, with many more to come. Stocks are down a little, but only just barely into bear territory. Major companies will be reporting large losses soon, but that hasn't happened yet, and the market will react to that. No major companies have begun large layoffs yet, either, so far we are only seeing a few minor hiring freezes. And of course we haven't seen bankruptcies yet, but they are surely coming.
