Who Decides on Consulting Offers?


Thank you for all your advice on the case interviews and hiring at top management consulting firms.  They are all incredibly helpful! I was wondering if you could elaborate on who makes the hiring decisions for the interviews?  Is it the interviewers or the HR recruiting manager?

My Reply:

Oh, it is definitely the interviewers.  The recruiting people only manage the process...they make sure everyone (candidates and interviewers) are doing what they are supposed to, where they are supposed to, when they are supposed to, including forcing all the interviewers to meet immediately afterward and decide, etc. The recruiters can not give you an offer (though they may communicate one to you), but if you are rude to them, they can convince the other interviewers you're a jerk and get you rejected on the grounds of not being "client safe."
