They are coming after people so hard

Yes, seems their business is booming. Although wondering if it is fairly limited to ediscovery, aml, etc. Feel like we have a good mix of other projects at EY and wouldn't want to get stuck on that.

I have heard their analytics skills are bad but they’re investing on bringing talent over

I've been at CRA for about 18 months. Pay is competitive in my experience. As for technology, my practice is still trying to build out it's analytics capabilities. Currently, the ediscovery and incident response teams are really solid.

WLB depends on your team and project. If you are on an engagement with tight deadlines and demanding clients, you're going to work lot, just like any other consulting firm. Yes, forensics is primarily based in Chicago with a presence in NY and a few senior ppl in Boston. Risk & Investigations is mainly NY.

They probably don’t pay well.

Better than my current b4. Not sure about progression though

As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp.

Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.
