Ghosted after Partner Interview/ Verbal offer?

I had my final interview (Partner) for a Manager role at Deloitte about a month ago. Was contacted shortly after saying they were looking to move ahead and that I would hear from HR shortly, but since then nothing...

I expected some delay as I know that should the formal offer come through the expected start date was June/July - should I be concerned?

Thanks all - Spoke to HR and then the Partner emailed me directly saying they need to get a few bits lined up but they'll be in contact as soon as they can. Felt a bit awkward for bothering them...but relieved I guess? Seems to be heading in the right direction. — Anonymous A on Mar 05, 2020

Hi Anonymous,

In principle still looks everything good based on your short summary of the situation.

However, also in consulting firms HR it's only humans who are doing the admin work, and things happen even in the most well-run organizations. So to make sure that nothing got lost somewhere in the process, just give them a call and clarify. After all, it's part of HR job to be the contact person to answer candidate's questions - so don't be shy and just approach them!

Hope that helps - if so, please give it a thumbs-up with the upvote button!

Hello there,

In the case of Deloitte, I would say one month is in the acceptable range.
I'd say do not be overly alarmed, try to contcat the HR to follow-up and hopefully they will come back to you promptly with an update on what is happening behind the scenes.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Hello!

In principal no issue, but it´s true that one month is quite a lot of time.

I would suggest to call HR and explain the situation to them, they are the ones that can tell you best.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

No, it's not a signal of a bad result. I recommend calling HR without worrying about bothering them: they are there to help.

Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose

Solved 61.4k times
Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose Duraflex is a German footwear company with annual men’s footwear sales of approximately €1 b. They have always relied on the boot market for the majority of their volume. In this market they compete with three other major competitors. In the fall of 2019, Badger – one of Duraflex’s competitiors – launched a new line of aggressively priced work boots. The strong success of this line has caused Duraflex’s management to re-evaluate their position in work boots. With limited additional resources, the management must now decide if they should focus their efforts on competing with Badger in the work boot sector, or allocate their resources on further strengthening their position with casual boots. The management team approached you and asked for your advice. In order to advise them on their future work boot strategy please prepare first some insights regarding market size and competitive landscape.
