How is the pace and workload at PKF O’Connor Davies? Is it a bit more laid back as a regional firm or just as demanding as Big4, mid-tier firms? (Specifically for the advisory side.)
Do B4 recruiters even put in the effort to look at a candidate before reaching out? I have had soo many B4 recruiters reach out to me for hourly/temp work but I’m a cpa at a mid tier firm. Do B4 really look down on mid tier THAT much that they think we would rather leave mid tier for contract work at B4? 🤨
Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

@Strategy& -- what is starting associate salary?
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?

Just had my 3rd interview last Thursday, with my potential AD partner. Haven’t heard anything back since. Should I assume they’ve moved on or is this pretty normal? They rushed me through all the interviews and the first CD gave my book more compliments than Ive had in an interview, so part of me thought it’d be quicker. Dying to find FT now as freelancing for the last year has been rough.
