I’d first tell EY and Prudential that you received an offer and maybe they’ll speed up your interview process to what your deadline is on the KPMG offer. Key thing is to determine how long the other companies will take.

On the offer letter, shouldn’t there be a date when you have to legally respond by?

Be open and honest with all employers. Tell EY and Prudential you have an offer with C deadline. Tell KPMG you still have more interviews in the next X timeframe (week or 2). Competition may drive faster timelines for the lingering processes at EY and Prudential.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner.

Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
