Sorry think I'm missing the joke here.. someone care to explain? 😛

Who told you it was flawless?

Sounds like the interviewer needs coaching. Nothing personal towards you, but it's just not good to give an impression to an interviewee that they got the role unless the interviewer is the sole approver of the role. Have you reached out to them?

Apply to a tier 1 firm?

Follow up, but assume they may no longer be interested. Also, firms are more likely to hire niche roles when they have a niche project need coming through the pipeline. But if that proposal is lost, they nay no longer need those niche skills. As such, you interview may have been flawless, but they may no longer need your skills.

You tell them they made a mistake and convince them that you’re flawless like this guy https://nymag.com/vindicated/2016/11/read-a-rejection-letter-reply-so-brilliant-it-got-him-hired.html

Maybe your not aesthetically presentable to the potential clients?

Sometimes we have limited partner round slots. I’ve had times when I wanted to put 6 people through and had to pick 4.

At ACN, it took ages for new hires in my group to go from interview to offer. Part of the issue was the ridiculous number of people who needed to approve new hires, but also we needed to a sold role for that person to start in. It was pretty common for it to take weeks for an offer to be extended.

Because of my hire date last year I wasn’t reviewed in last summer’s annual review cycle. My firm cut everyone’s salary by 25% in March and made major layoffs and more are coming. The firm made it clear that during this summer’s review they will not discuss salary. Any advice for how to have the conversation in the near future about a raise? I work exclusively with nonprofits and my current salary is not sustainable. Are consulting firms that deal with for profits also suffering like this?
