How do Big 4 Experienced Hire interviews differ from fresh graduate interviews? Hoping to transition from a boutique firm I joined after college to the Big 4. Interviewed with MBB during school, however, not sure what to expect as an Experienced Hire. YOE 4, Midwest LCOL. Reason: great pay and WLB, but, not challenged and little upwards trajectory.
Should I stop depositing into my 401k?
How are Business/functional analysts utilized at your company? Or do you have product owners (scrum) or product managers instead?

That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
If trades happened in Finance: "Nomura trades prized Analyst to Deutsche for ten Juul Pods, a used pair of Cole Haan sleds, two Excel 2007 discs, and an intern to be named later."

What is the salary for D1 in NYC?
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
I need a vacation 😩
Thoughts on EU ruling on Uber being a taxi firm > US impact? Sounds legit. Don't care much for their corporate culture, but care less for the high prices and poor service of regulated taxi firms
Is D flexible in allowing moves to cities away from their home office e.g. Aligned to NY, wants to move to San Diego
@Bain folks: I got invited to a 10-min digital interview (HireVue). Any idea/tips on what to expect?

I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
I’m looking to establish comp ranges (mostly IT and tech). What are some good options that are up to date, user friendly, and overall good resource? We are primarily remote but do have a small headquarters.
Any tips on negotiating severance package? What’s typical package for a NY lay off? How do we maximize the money we receive? I’ve also read things on the internet that say “don’t sign it on the spot.”
When you express an interest in a Credit Fund to a recruiter, will you fall under the PE or HF interview path?

Negotiating tips at year-end review for getting an above-average raise? Or do numbers speak for themselves?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I can’t stand my team/what I am doing, but find myself staying in the role because of the comp. I think my manager is picking up on this...unhappiness affecting performance and engagement. Advice?
Any ideas on how well flatiron health pays? Looking at their manager in product operation and product marketing roles and wasn't sure. Not too much info online and Glassdoor might be old
Is agency culture relatively the same across the country? Are agencies in smaller markets a little more chill (better work life balance, less chaos, etc.)? I'm getting a little burnt out and I'm not sure if it's a NYC thing or an advertising thing.
It’s well known that the difference in work culture in Europe vs US is quite different. Can you comment on some of the differences when it comes to work/life balance, competitiveness, client dynamics
I want to hear about people's exit ops from human capital consulting. Please share companies and position if possible.

I tried cutting for the first time. I don’t recognize myself. I want to take short term disability to “fix” myself. Therapy isn’t enough. I don’t know how to do that. Has anyone done it? Any advice?
