Hi! What are your companies doing regarding sign on bonuses for interns this year? We ended up having our full intern program this summer and plan to extend offers. Are companies getting rid of sign on bonuses for entry level employees this year? Any insight would be appreciated!

Rated highly effective, bucket 2 (1 being highest, out of 5). No promotion, so now I’m a third year analyst. Is this a red flag? I’m in FDD, transferred after 1 year in audit.
Looking for a new job- aiming for about 200k salary or so- one of the options is a firm where I’d be an independent consultant- how much would you ask for per hour? I can do the straight calculation after considering insurance, match, self employment tax etc... but given the additional uncertainty I’m not sure what to ask for.

Deloitte what’s your methodology for completeness and accuracy testing for a work paper ? How many samples one way and how many samples the other way ? Typically we would do 16 and 16 if it’s greater than 200. Also not referring to inventory counts, let’s say a key report.

Any financial advice for us younger professionals who have not weathered a recession? I’m nearly three years out of college and it freaks me out to see my (small) 401k losing thousands of dollars.
First year SC and interviewing for an M position at another firm. I’ve spent 20 hours prepping for the case interview so far. I feel like that alone means I’m not qualified for the role. (Cont.)
Literally saw a job posting that was just posted 5 HOURS AGO, some no name startup with only 51-200 employees, 289 APPLICANTS?!? This is like the 10th posting I’ve seen like this the past 2 days where there are more applicants than employees within hours of posting. Like wtf....how am I supposed to compete on any of these apps (and don’t say referral because I don’t know someone at every company and honestly all my referral applications haven’t worked). Great motivation on a Monday 😭

What’s do the typical exit roles to industry look like for an M from D with 8-10 YOE? I feel like the only traction I’m seeing is for Senior Program Manager roles for non-FAANG companies (San Diego based FWIW). Are these just a lateral move or a downgrade since these are all individual contributor roles?
