Would you accept a final offer from a firm if you enjoyed the interview process but HR/Talent was unorganized and difficult to work with? Is it a bad sign or very common?

They are all disorganized. Lower your expectations of them. But I advise to take the initiative and call. Don't wait for their reply. Be proactive.

If the offer is good, yes. I give more leeway to young companies/startups which are likely to all have core services growing pains

Super common.

Very common

Is it specifically talent/recruitment team that was difficult? If the entire HR organization is disorganized, you should consider whether you want to deal with them as an employee when it comes to matters of comp, etc.

Just a guess - is this offer from EY?

Unless it's an HR consulting firm, then run fast 😂

No, because Booz Allen, for example, outsourced its HR work, so the HR isn't a true reflection of the firm. I had to actively follow up on everything: my interview confirmation, my travel to the interview, my offer letter, my travel to my orientation, and my orientation (which was scheduled on another date and the recruiter failed to communicate that to me).

Thanks guys! It was the recruiters, not actual HR so I’m trying not to judge the whole firm. EY1, not your firm but another big 4.
