I love my job and love my team, but can't deal with OT anymore. My team is short staffed (almost no one left in the staff/senior level), and as a result, I work from 7AM to 2AM and have no work life balance. Should I start interviewing for a job in industry? Or should I discuss what I am going through and how I feel about it with my partner/coach(RL)? My team is aware that I am working long hours but they keep bringing new projects. Hiring freeze and COVID make things even worse now

If HR asks you to help with interviewing for new staff on your toxic team (that you're actively trying to leave), how would you covertly warn the interviewee to avoid your company?

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??”

Interviewing with a company and agreed upon a salary with the recruiter. Now the recruiter is saying the company will agree upon the salary, but pay me reduced for a set-agreed time, which would likely bring me under 100k. This company also recently cut 20% of its staff. Any advice to navigate through this? It’s an employer market and they are spoiled for choice.

Are referrals from junior people impactful at MBB in terms of securing an interview? I have personal connections to younger staff (went to school with them/close friend) but I didn’t know if I needed to reach out to others who are higher up (who I don’t know personally) to secure a referral that will move the needle in terms of getting an interview.

Thoughts: don’t pursue consensus driven interview processes (all 9 people have to agree you get an offer) but pursue chief of staff opportunities where there is just 1-2 decision makers. More likely to convert. Then use that pivot in the organization.

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?

Nothing is guaranteed and they could easily go away in this climate. I make 50k right now and the Glassdoor page at my employer reflects that. Glassdoor range for the new job is 69k-76k.
