Yeah man, I'm a Staff 1 and the hardest thing to find at EY is someone who will tell you the harsh truth instead of just parrot the party line.

Glad you learned how to send calendar invites!

It's great that this app is helpful, but please remember that many of us have been with our respective firms for a long time, so we have a tendency to be cynical. Just keep this in mind when reading posts- it's not all bad.

You're not sure what a Case Interview is? Or the "party line?" Basically I'm telling you that you can probably do better and you shouldn't settle for the job offer they give you when the internship is over.

By the way, that harsh truth is that you should start prepping for Case Interviews like now-ish.

That's a good backup plan. But I would strongly recommend Plan A be searching for 1) more interesting work at a different firm, or 2) more money at a different firm

@EY1 I honestly don't even know what you're referring to

The gentle(wo)man above is also correct.

What do you guys think about switching to a niche TAS branch in an industry I'm interested in?

Over potentially going to a different, better firm

@OP, how did you find out about this app? :)

Advice for a lady intern?

I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
