Perhaps but would recommend you shoot a note over. Sometimes they just don’t get back to candidates, unfortunately. Better to ask and know rather than sit, wait and hope.

Unsure about big 4. But for any big company, this will prob apply: I interviewed for an analyst title with Goldman years back. Did about 4-5 rounds of phone and in person interviews, including a final round with head of the group. This was all between early October to November. Heard nothing for weeks, then in December the recruiter tells me the role is on hold but I’m still in consideration. Then no word for another few weeks until finally in mid/late January, I was told they hired an internal candidate lmao. They strung me along for no reason. So yeah, it is normal lol

Good to follow up to express interest but don’t overdo it or you’ll sound desperate. But honestly they won’t care lol. If they want u, they’ll give u an offer, simple as that. Keep interviewing for other roles is the best bet, it’s all part of the job hunting game

Not sure about big 4 but JP Morgan took 4 months for me.

It was over 2 years ago. All my interviews were in March and I didn’t start until July. So I guess 3 months because I finally heard back in June they wanted me. I was even poached externally for the role, I wasn’t even looking for a new job.

Hi, Could you please let me know the Salary range for a Project Manager in Deloitte Consulting in Singapore and Malaysia ?

New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?

Hi again. Some of you suggested I get a CIPP to show my interest in IP/Privacy law (I’m the one stuck in civil lit)..

It costs $1,200 + the license exam is another $500. Feels like a lot but then maybe not if it helps my future goals. Would love your insight(s) again. Thank you from the bottom of my sad heart.
