Incoming EY-P Associate, class of 2024. Time to look elsewhere?

I'm graduating this upcoming May (class of '24) and am scheduled to join EY-P full-time in late summer / early fall of 2024. Class of '23 just got pushed further back from January 2024 all the way to August... in and around our intended start.

Quick math and I've started to realize there's little to no chance we start on time. The '23 hires will be given priority, and we'll likely not start with them. Is it time to pursue other areas of employment?

 

There’s a delayed class of ‘22 STARTING in mid-late 2024????

Can you explain that? Is that all laterals?

 

My bad, every year in my comment was one year behind. I was thinking about when they actually got the offer, not when they technically were supposed to “start”. Class of ‘22 is referring to the cohort that got their offer letters in 2022 but graduated in 2023, and had their offers pushed to 2024. I fixed my comment so it should be clearer.

 

I would search for a different opportunity if I were you to be safe. It's a very very bad practice, but in this economy, it might be better to have at least two offers that you are signed to and renege on one as you're about to start one. 

Source: class of '23 who got their FT offer pulled. Again, it's a very bad practice (might get you blacklisted), but worth the risk to have another thing lined up. Think all consulting firms are misleading signed offers to some degree.
