Here it comes!
The accounting firm is exploring a plan to split its global audit and consulting practices, following an effort by fellow Big Four firm Ernst & Young to potentially spin off its consulting arm, according to peo...wsj.com
What can/do you do when you have a coworker who does not and cannot receive feedback/constructive criticism, but gives everyone feedback when it’s not wanted? What about when it’s a manager as well?
Has anyone interviewed with Everest group? How's their consulting practice? Not very keen but might go through the process anyway

I want to be dramatic, I’m lonely, and I’m melancholically not doing anything because the impending sense of doom prohibits my ability to work productively so I languish in learned helplessness as I sit in a rut trying to get myself to do things

Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
Have you noticed inflation and the general chaos we're moving through affecting your business and firm? Just asking for different perspectives here, not a political discussion.
How is the current madness around Omicron affecting your firm? Are you implementing or changing policies to address it? Know this is a touchy subject, just taking a pulse.
Did you make a "Resolution" for this year? If so, what was it? I'm working on spending more time with my family, and staying away from tech to the best of my ability on Sundays.
What's your best advice for someone who wants to make Partner and is early in their career?
We have some at my firm leaving to be a direct entry partner at EY consulting. He was told he will benefit from the split the same way all other EY partners will. Anyone know if that is accurate?
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.
Expectation vs Reality: what did you think Partner was going to be like on your way there, and what would you say your experience is like now? What have you learned?
What are some key ways you balance stress and not taking it out on others/family? It's something I'm always working on but none of us are perfect. That said, I've made vast improvements. During the winter it's always harder as I feel many of my outlets are limited [like golf etc]
I’m considering joining EY in London. Currently at a boutique consultancy. I joined Fishbowl to try to get a sense ‘from the inside’ of the Big4 as I don’t have close contacts I can ask. I’ve seen a lot of griping in the other channels from more junior staff about comparatively low pay, EY not keeping up, clunky tech, etc. Is that just normal / expected grumbling? Would be really interested in the Partner perspective on this. Feel free to DM if more appropriate. Thanks!
Where are all the accounting professionals going? Competitive pay and benefits aren’t enticing enough. People want work/life balance but how can firms provide that when the workforce supply is so low yet demand is at an all-time high. If technology is the answer are there firms that are successfully implementing solutions?
I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.

Looking forward to that IPO $.
Didnt all EY partners share in their spinoff proceeds of their old mgmt Consulting unit about 20 years ago to cap gemini? I think it was $11B sale price. PWC sold theirs to IBM for $3.5B.
If EY got 11B and Pwc only 3.5B does that mean EY was three times larger or better? Seems all big 4 today are more closely together than one being 3 times larger??
Both sold units. I think EY can put and said it was a spin and not a sale
