Any thoughts on Big 4 international tax advisory role vs in-house tax counsel role at F100? I am currently happy at big4 but worried about career progression at big4 as I probably will hv the technical skills but not the people skills/ sales skills to make partner.

My maternity leave will be over in a couple months, and I’m debating staying at home full time. I’m not sure if I should go back and give myself a few weeks or a month and see how it goes, because I might change my mind. Or do I burn less bridges by not returning at all? And if so, when do I tell them? Not sure how to navigate this. (I’m in Big 4 accounting.)

Going to BDO from big 4, advisory, similar practice but can work on clients that I’m more interested in. Experienced staff level. Any suggestions on the pros and cons? How’s work life balance there?
Is it appropriate to ask about flexibility and work/life balance in an interview (in industry, not big 4)? I haven't had an interview in over 9 years, when I applied for internships. (Cont'd...)
Anyone been lowballed before? I had told the recruiter at a big 4 firm I was looking for ~$180k in base. They said ok and I went through all the interviews and was given an offer of ~125k base 😩

What do your normal hours look like? I made plans for 5:00pm (after working until 9pm for the past few weeks) and was told that I cannot have plans during “normal working hours” which are from 8am to 8pm. There was nothing due the next day and nothing urgent that needed done. I talked to my manager and he pretty much said that’s consulting hours. It’s a small firm, so curious what other people’s hours are?
