Agree or disagree — for a B4 tax practice, service line partners are actually more Atkin to middle management and managers are not really “management” in the traditional sense. Ie, we have don’t really have much to say on the strategic direction of our practice.

Genuine question: For those who are promoted (S1s, M1s) and still planning to stay in big 4 audit after the shitty raise, what is your reason? Assuming you are not planning to become partner. Really curious

Thoughts on this Weekend’s WSJ article that said (assuming I read correctly) all but 7 percent of companies plan raises for next year, and that only 14 percent aren’t offering raises this year? Given the importance of talent to professional services, does it make sense for B4 to hold tight (no merit increases), and risk the loss of top talent across many levels?

Looking to return to Big 4 as a consultant now that I have some experience; however, I’m not sure if the reason I’m not getting any interviews is because of covid or what’s on my resume/lack thereof. Has anyone gotten hired at Big 4 during this time and have any help or insight for me? Thanks!

I recently left the bank channel and went Indy, I’ve been successful at moving clients and assets over and am just getting started. A former bank advisor colleague has show interest in partnering up. For comparison purposes our AUM and production numbers were comparable. I did more fee based business while he did more VA and insurance business but we both have a fairly balanced product mix. What are thoughts on forming a new partnership? What should I be thinking about while having discussions?
