I’m about to start working in audit at a top 10 firm as an A1. I want to get into FDD soon and most people said after a year of audit I’ll have a good chance. Any thoughts? I have my cpa done, just missing the work experience and I’m already starting to network (looking to switch into big 4)

Have an interview with big 4 this week and stressing about it. What kind of questions should I prepare for?

To managers and senior managers in big 4, how do you support your seniors to be promoted to manager? I have a senior manager on a big job, who always talks over me and once I explain something he always reexplains it as though I never explained it properly which brings my confidence down. Should I be more assertive and ask him why he is doing it?
Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!
Hi all - I am looking to move into the world of brand strategy consulting (KPMG has customer consulting division but brand and marketing aren't that strong. Also KPMG UK is the only one of big 4 that has not bought an agency!!). Wanted to hear some advice on the options: go to a boutique (like Lippincott, Prophet) or brand agency? The salary cut for agency is huge though. Are there other options?
Does anyone have insight on how partner pay compares between big 4 and some of the smaller PA shops, like RSM / BDO? Curious to see what the difference in pay at that level may be. Thanks !

New client is 3.5 hours away driving (NJ to DC). Can't decide between driving, Amtrak or flying. Only 4 weeks of travel so I guess flying wouldn't benefit much from losing out on points.
(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.
Any part time remote job recommendations? Trying to use to my extra hours at nights/weekends to make a bit more. Besides video editing/Photoshop
