Need advice - had my phone interview with Bain as a data analyst but I don’t want to proceed since it isn’t actual consulting. How do I politely let the recruiter know I don’t want to proceed ? TIA!

At my current company, I have successfully referred 13 out of 15 ex-colleagues and friends. Every referral reached the panel interview stage and received offer letters.

With the recent tech layoffs, some of my referrals have asked me to submit their ex-colleagues for them because they believe my recommendation carries more weight. My dilemma is that I am brutally honest in my recommendations and wouldn't be comfortable submitting strangers. Should I refuse? More info in comments.

My interview experience was great-I liked the team, and it was more conversational than rapid-fire questions and answers. But, I also don’t want to be delusional.

Beware of EY FAAS. They’ll have you interview for one location, tell you you’re fine to wfh, tell you they’re fine with you relocating later, and make it seem like you’ll be working on clients there. Then after they tell you they’re giving you an offer they’ll tell you they’re trying to map you to a different office while you’re out of state until you move to the original office location. Really insincere, why not just tell me you’d have to map me to a different office before or during interview
