I mean it’s hard to tell quality from an interview process anyways so might as well cut the crap and just extend offers and see what sticks

Downside - you gotta work at PwC if you accept the offer.

All that I don’t know. I just know be it at PwC or any other from I am just slaving for peanuts. I want to laugh because frankly speaking anywhere you go you will be over worked and exploited and underpaid. Increase my pay to IB level or even MBB level I will stick.

Other firms should learn. I switched to PwC after EY 2 30 min interviews recorded with hirevue. Process is getting ridiculous we’re not campus hires and don’t need multiple on campus recruiting events and 4 30 min follow up interviews anymore. Proud to be at a firm that is saving us time in the process.

Glad I backed out of my AWS interview a few months ago. I could tell it was going to be a ridiculous process from the start. 7hrs of interviews?! Insane. Granted at Deloitte I talked to the recruiter for ~30, then two 30-min phone interviews followed by six 30-min interviews on-site. And that was only a lead specialist role in marketing. 😖

PwC reached out to me on LinkedIn. I'm in PwC

I didn’t come from another big 4 but got a offer from Deloitte within 24 hours of first chatting with my recruiter.

Yeah. It’s getting retired by end of year

lol KPMG messaged me on linked in offering me Director in their FDD(manager in FDD currently)

P3, yes, they pre-screened you and deemed your time at PwC was worth an interview. They don’t know you’re a top performer though, just that you’ve been working for PwC for X years and you’re at (current) level. That’s all. If you got on the interview and you bombed the questions, you wouldn’t get an offer. They may be streamlining you, but you still have to perform well at the interview. That’s the point D1 is making.

like

But PwC pay is based on cohort system so you are not getting any meaningful raise unless switching to a better SL.

As an interviewer at PwC, I can tell you that isn’t the case in my group and my group is very understaffed. Maybe director level but I interview managers and below and we still have three interviews.

It’s more towards payments, banking platform transformation etc

After this I haven't got any response in mail - How long does it take them to roll out the official offer letter after oral confirmation? Any similar encounters?
