Passed my EY interview series. Was discussing comp with recruiters and Partners, but was coming in higher then they liked. They were sorting out the comp package and indicated that they’d get back to me. Since then, have been completely ghosted by my recruiter (has been 5 weeks since last dialogue). Is this common practice for EY ?

I fault the recruiter here, they should have been clear when they asked you for expected compensation. Any company that ghost me is not a company I would pursue or be interested in working for. I think you might have dodged a bullet.

how far off in comp you asked for could you have been that they went through the full process, wanted you, heard your ask on comp, then ghosted? Didn’t you know a realistic range beforehand?

What was your counteroffer?

I was not far out of range. Wouldn’t it be leading practice for a recruiter to round out the conversation and say either (a) no-go or (b) make a final counter?

Thanks EY1. DMing you

They may have decided to pass and go with someone else. 5 weeks is an awfully long time for a consulting firm to keep a candidate hanging especially while we are on a hiring frenzy. Also, why were you discussing comp with the Partners? I’ve never heard of anyone doing that before, it’s usually done through the recruiters. Unless that’s what you meant

I did have a discussion with a partner when I joined EY. I initially turned down the offer, the recruiter insisted and I said no. The partner called me later on to ask for my number, I gave it to him and he said yes. They can make decision.

EY5, why do you say that?

Keep following up OP! Took me 4 months last year during the height of COVID and would get ghosted after great feedback from interviews Kept following up and recruiter appreciated my constant emails Not sure why, but it seems common for experience hiring I didn’t have an alternative offer at the time so take that into account too or I assume it would have moved a lot quicker Campus hiring is really good, which makes sense or candidates would immediately drop out of the process

If you follow too much, you may get blacklisted. So be careful what you wish for

I’m wondering from those who have moved from account to strategy how you’ve liked it and what were your motivations, pros and cons of the jump and what you think about the trajectory of your career and salary now. The head of strategy at my agency recently said I could be on her team and I’m extremely intrigued but surprised as I just always thought I’d be on the account side since I do so well there.

I’m working 60 hour work weeks because people keep quitting. I’m over it. I’ve been interviewing but just in that waiting period to see what happens. Any advice?

Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?
