Hi all! I just got a Senior tax associate role in industry ($85k, MCOL; 17% more than I currently make). Enjoyed the people I interviewed with; my only hesitation is that the company itself has had a rough couple of years (healthcare company, had a few bad acquisitions that they’ve since shed off). Their busy season is just January and early February, with their team working until about 7 PM during the week and a few Saturdays. I’m interested, but it’s also my 1st offer; what would you do?

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...

I interviewed for analyst at Deloitte in September. Cleared 2 rounds of interview alongwith an assignment submission.
Got a positive feedback from HR manager. I was told( on a call in October) they'll get back but till today, I haven't received any clarity. Another HR contacted me in November regarding a different opportunity but same is the case here after 2 interviews. Is it normal in Deloitte to ghost the candidates after the interview or do I have some hope here?

Netflix is silent for a week but i was told on last call that I passed the onsite interview and they wanted me on a higher/mgr level with a different team too. What would you do?

When you apply for a job with a client, could they reveal that you’re doing that to your current firm?
