When I interviewed, I literally said “EY is the place I want to retire at” (and I genuinely meant it). When I was staff, I thought I would quit after I make SM for a few years. Now as a Senior 3 everyday - “I hate my job. I won’t get promoted to Manager next year. I hate my life. When can I quit??”

SM and D 🐠: when you interview a candidate with 9+ yrs of experience for a technical/leadership role - do you expect them to know the definitions of “objects” that they learnt as basics a decade back? or do you give them scenario based questions that solves clients’ problems? Genuinely curious.

My undergrad was in CS at a private school and I’ve had no Cyber experience before big4 cyber work. Lately I’ve been finding the security program strategy/transformation work to be repetitive & boring and interested in getting back to more technical work like appsec. Currently a Senior Manager with 10 YOE. 167k TC. Thoughts/advice?

Hi there, I have recently switched jobs to a step role. As part of my role, I need to hire people across titles. It’s been a hit and miss when some candidates who were great during interviews turned out to dumb and vice-Versa. Irony is my colleagues are very proficient are picking at right candidates, is there something I am starkly missing. Specially lots of miss for Senior Manager Delivery and Scrum Master.

In a process of interviewing for a technical accounting manager job. Hiring manager told me that the position won’t have staff oversight responsibilities. So I feel this is a glorified senior accountant job under a manager title. The raise is decent 20%. Growth opportunity seems to be ok, 2 SM above me, one manager who has more experience, and 2 accountants that the SM oversees. It is technical accounting, so probably doing special projects etc. Should I take the offer?

Today was suppose to be my graduation day. Instead I had an experienced hire Big Four interview this afternoon with a senior manager and partner. Was referred to them by another senior manager. Told quite a few positions need to be filled. No hiring freeze for those positions. Don’t expect to hear right away due to Covid delays,working from home, and it being late afternoon on Friday. How long of wait time till I should worry about no offer? Super excited and nervous all at once. Advice needed!
