Green dot: engagement "structure" and skipping assessment centres for experienced hires?

 
#1 Green dot: engagement "structure" and skipping assessment centres for experienced hires?

Hi folks,

I've cheekily snuck in with two questions in one thread.

First, can anyone confirm a typical engagement structure at the green dot? I'm assuming there's a director/partner with broad oversight on the engagement, engagement managers, and the project staff actually doing the work.

Or is there anything... ah, "unique" about their engagements which only someone who's more familiar with their particular flavour of big 4 would know about?

E.g. what does a "functional lead" do exactly? That phase has been used to describe their project set-up during the interview process.

I guess I'm trying to uncover unknown unknowns, and since you don't know what I don't know... we'll see how this goes. Maybe not well.

Secondly, does their recruitment process ever skip assessment centres for experienced hires going in at the SC/M level? So far, I've had a face to face, informal director interview, HR telephone screening, and a partner interview. Yet the partner mentioned an offer being the next step. That's super duper, but what about the assessment centres I've been swotting up on..?

I guess it's likely that the partner isn't that close to my application, and thus may have assumed I've already attended the assessment centre, which is fine. But do they possibly "skip" that step in some cases?

Anyone?

I'm especially interested in the first part of my question. What does a "functional lead" do or is it just one of those wishy-washy phrases that doesn't really mean much without more context?

There's no specific engagement structure. How can there be? It's a Big 4 organisation that does everything from multi-year, multi-million dollar deals to 1 man gigs.

Why are you asking?

Hi there,

It was just in case there was anything stand out that anyone could offer - common themes, a framework that was developed in-house for specific types, something like that. As in, for a vanilla flavour, bread-and-butter-type thing. I realise that's quite generic and that it may be a question which has no answer (or, rather, has the answer above).

I also wondered about the specific "Functional Lead" aspect in case it was a role I knew by another name i.e. could be mapped to something I know already.

I guess from your reply, and lack of others, I do have my answer though. Cheers.
