Firm is going through a re-justification process on all new hires at the moment because growth has been mid single digits so far this year. Highly unlikely there isn't a need for seniors in any market, but that's probably why the pause.

There is always a need to seniors from what I've seen. Typically the most turnover at that level. Seems strange, did they give you a timeline?

What service line? In assurance they need people for sure.

Advisory.

Risk Assurance you probably have position, true advisory don't count on it.

EY is very very very slow.

What to do when HR for an in-house role sends you an email with four interviews set up for next week without having had a phone conversation first? I have no sense of what the salary is for this role. I do not want to waste my time or the time of the four people I am scheduled to interview with. I thought that with most in-house roles, there would be a conversation about that first to make sure everyone is on the same page. 😩
