Quick rant: I had an interview with EY for a tax senior in mid July. I followed up and was told that they’ll contact me by end of July. I followed up twice in August. No response. Got word back front the recruiter today if I’m still interested. I said yes. But no email after that yet. I definitely get that they’re busy, but man, I’d really appreciate a yes or no answer from them, as opposed to waiting on the bench haha. Thank you for listening fishes lol!

I am curently a tax senior at BDO in Texas. I interviewed and got 4 offers from the following firms and need advise choosing the best offer: Grant Thornton, Weaver (remotely), CohnReznick (remotely) and Marcum. The compensation is comparable but of course some are higher than others a little. My 2 reasons of leavings are to have better compensation and better hours hopefully to get my CPA exams done. I also have 2 interviews with two Big 4 firms scheduled next week. Please share your thoughts!

I really need help from everyone here: I am a tax senior, and I have offer from both EY and MNP. I was at Deloitte earlier and I am not sure which to pick. Same package/benefits. While EY is a great firm and the partners are amazing and all experiences of Big4 and it's resources, MNP has this charm of a Canadian firm and great culture. I don't know much but people say MNP is a great organization. The people I will work with are all amazing to speak during interview. What to do now?

I'm getting a lot of interviews at companies, what will likely amount to a ~30% pay bump. I'm currently going into my 2nd year as a tax senior. Is it premature to leave? The biggest downside I see is the loss of a standard promotion path. The money and work life balance sounds good now but am I foolish for not sticking it out longer in public until at least manager? I don't want to he trapped in a new job with less opportunities down the road. Curious for everyone's thoughts
