Is it beneficial to have health insurance from both spouses, vs choosing the better one and opting out of the second? Why/why not? This seems like a silly question, but it’s our first time with both of us being staff in a decade. We have a kid, if that affects your answer.

Is $75K not enough for a staff tax accountant?

I have difficulties finding one. No CPA required, 100% remote, decent health insurance; and no one is biting. Two main requirements: understanding of income/franchise tax and good Excel (ideally - Power BI and or Alteryx). Does our recruiter suck or do we have unrealistic expectations?

With all the change happening right now, my one hope is the PwC and other firms will stop treating their staff like they own their lives. I would hope 7 day 90+ hour weeks will go away at some point. I hope starting salaries will be better and bonuses will start being paid out more meaningfully to all levels, and not just management. Our CEO Tim Ryan has been giving sappy calls to all of PwC for several years while quietly reducing benefits and maximizing profits for the partners

Would it be crazy to jump after ~4 months? I joined EY not too long ago as a Staff 2, experienced hire from industry. A contact is recruiting me for a similar position back in industry, but with a 25% bump and better 401k.

Getting along well at EY and they’ve already discussed me for agile in spring, but it would probably take a couple years to get to this salary here. What do we think?

L.E.K. is looking for lateral hires with 1+ YoE in consulting. There is a strong demand for Consultants (typically mid-tenured or post-MBA). Pay, healthcare, and other benefits are very competitive. DM me if you have recent consulting experience!

Hot take:
· No PMO, staff aug, implementation, or forced extracurriculars
· Only corporate strategy and commercial due diligences
· Projects are actually similar to the typical case interviews

First offer! Any advice on making a decision?

Offer: 110 tc for a Sr role at a smaller florida Healthcare company. Currently run by PE, planned SPAC soon.

Current: staff 2, ~75k in data analytics in northeast.

I think the move will be nice and also it's a nice comp increase. However I'll be getting promoted soon, and worried that jumping to a smaller company will hurt future prospects. Thoughts?

After seeing a number of posts about assigning work to staff & providing clear instructions, should it be done verbally v written, note-taking abilities of staff, etc., has anybody thought about recording a call or video for this? I feel like this could be very helpful, especially if there's screensharing with the WP in question open and navigated (obvs close out chats, disable notifications, etc.). Immediate & future benefits. Also, recordings could be used to send to off-shore teams as well.

Not sure if this has been discussed before, but what kind of health benefits do your firms offer? I’m at a small firm (<10 attorneys) and the firm covers all health insurance premiums for staff and associates (including spouse and family plans) and also covers half of our deductibles. We also get a fitness reimbursement up to $200 per month. Are those benefits standard across the industry?

Just curious. What are everybody’s pension benefits out there? PwCs are fairly dismal for employees. 25% 401(k) match on first 6% deferred. Then a non elective contribution that varies by staff level. 3% for associates. 4% seniors. 5% for managers. 6% directors and then I think 8% for partners. What does everyone else get?
