You posted to the Coronavirus bowl with your title and not your company. What kind of answer are you expecting here, honestly?

Yes, and I’m too sick to dignify KPMG w an answer 🤧

It’s in the same state as the California mega quake. It’s coming but no one can accurately predict when. So instead of worrying endlessly about it, do the minimum to prepare for it, if it will set your mind at ease, and above all else focus on living your life and doing a banging job with what you currently have ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hell of an analogy 👍👍

EY is taking a firm stance on mitigating workforce reduction (e.g. proactively letting us know there will be no PBB this year, trimmings to PPMD pay, etc. as previously planned contingency plans). I really think most people will be fine... even some low performers might survive better for the next few months vs. otherwise because the firm doesn’t want to let people go during such a difficult time

There’s a bit of jockeying and knowing who’s working on what deal. But I love it I’m competitive AF

NONE!

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person.

I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
