I need to some advice, I got a verbal offer to join PwC's FS Advisory group last Tuesday. The recruiter asked if I wanted to join and what may salary requirements were. I stated I was happy to join and that I wanted $135-140K. She said that was "out of the question" and said there maybe some wiggle room with the signing bonus (as by me joining I'd miss out on my current fiscal year bonus. I didn't hear from PwC so I reached out about the offer letter yesterday. I got an email stating "let's talk after T-giving". My question is should I be worried. I would only take PwC if the salary was on point, seeing how currently I make close to the Post-MBA salary. And does PwC always talk this long with experience hire recruiting? The recruiting has been sloppy, I'm really thinking about walking away and focusing on my current role.
PwC Experienced Hire Offer Letter Delay
Due to the fact that this exchange happened around Thanksgiving, our users felt that their failure to respond was simply due to bad timing. That being said - usually you are given the official offer letter a few days after the verbal offer.
They're usually pretty prompt - my assumption would just be bad timing - with Thanksgiving break right around the corner a lot of people tend to push things until after everyone returns. Most big 4 have a partial day Wednesday through Friday off, as a result a lot of people end up taking the week off - if your request needed to be escalated to multiple people, there s a good chance that they're out of office.
User @Infiniti242 shared that if they were actually going to pull your offer - they'd have already let you know.
I had my face-to-face interview with FS Advisory about 1.5 weeks ago. With the Holiday, they were pretty backed up. I received my verbal offer yesterday and should get the written in the next day or so, according to the recruiter. I would say to just reach out to your recruiter and ask for an update. If they weren't interested in you, odds are, they would have already notified you of their decision to not move forward.
Our users suggested that the OP reach out to the recruiter after the holiday to get an update on the situation. There is no downside to getting in touch with the HR rep.
