What happens when a company gets acquired by a B4? Do we keep our benefits/salaries/levels at the new firm? HR is just talking blablabla and its hard to know what is really going on and what we should expect. TIA
Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
How important is it to get your CPA in the long run/ outside of big 4? Would CFE be beneficial? I’m a forensics staff.
I came over from a B4 to a smaller firm. I've been out on one of their bigger clients. Hours aren't as bad as B4. I'm amazed how the homegrown staff and seniors freak out when they hear the amt of hrs
Has anyone here committed to a partner who has significant debt? My partner of over a year has >$300K in debt from med school. She has since quit medicine, due to a toxic culture that sounds worse than biglaw. In the last year she started earning enough to refinance her loans into a 10-year horizon. I am fortunate to be debt free and am saving aggressively with the aim of making a down payment on a NYC apartment in the next 5 years. We would like to get married before owning property (cont)

Hey hive mind! A headhunter reached to me about VP/SVP/Director opportunities at AlixPartners in EI or Cyber. A previous BAH executive referred him to me as a candidate. I’ve been in advisory and consulting for 10 yrs, am a Sr Mgr/Mgr type now, no MBA, have certs in cyber and management. AP seems great. I like cyber well enough but am not married to it. Two questions: 1) Thoughts on AP business and culture, and 2) Thoughts on which AP level I would be aligned to? Thank you!!
At a culture event and was asked to specify my "walk out" song - basically, a song that motivates me. I mentioned to a Principal that mine was "Best of You" by Foo Fighters. The irony was deafening...

Student Loan question: my wife has ~$45k in fed loans. We just sold our house and made a very good profit. Should we just pay off her loans entirely? I really doubt there’ll be any significant blanket forgiveness from the Biden admin any time soon. Just curious to hear different perspectives!
About to enter a two (2) year post bacc program for pre-health studies at an Ivy League institution. There are various optional one (1) year Masters programs offered subsequent to completing the program. Assuming I decide not to become an MD, would this program/track help me get into BioTech & cannabis startups/healthcare admin?
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️

My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?
I’ll be doing my first deposition ever via Zoom in a month or two. Any tips? Resources to read? Videos to watch? (I’m a rising second year associate who got hired during the pandemic. I really want to impress my new bosses, so I’m going to put in tons of non-billable time prepping)
