Anyone heard of CFGI? Is it legit? Good move from PwC?

Following this, called by a recruiter this week about CFGI but can’t find much about how working there compares to Big4, especially for the tax function. I’m looking for more work/life balance and to get away from the constant demand that work be my #1 priority at all times, but I’m having trouble finding a position in a corporate tax department and am wondering if CFGI might be a good stepping stone .


I can attest to CFGI's sketchy recruiting practices. On several occasions, they were working with recruiters who forwarded my resume along to them, and they then informed the recruiter that I wasn't a good fit. Then, that day or the subsequent day, they would add me on LinkedIn, give me the hard sell, and ask me to apply using their recruiting website. If they're willing to cut those corners, what other corners are they willing to cut to save a few bucks


Can confirm it’s worth the switch. Growing company - talent is rewarded much earlier than at big 4. Surrounded by big 4 talent.


They did the same to me, dont waste tour time

Wishing good luck to a mangers first day back at Google tomorrow. He was accused of sexual harassment and retaliation. Four separate witness accounts from women AND men.

How many more stories like this need to happen before the company takes it seriously?!

My first holiday season in-house after a couple of decades in private practice, doing the same kind of transactional work that I’ve always done. My year is functionally done. No one else is around or working. I’ve been so conditioned to expect to grind out through the holidays that it makes me think of how Brooks in Shawshank had become “institutionalized.” I only worked hard the last couple of days because I set some deadlines so as to get things tied up before the holidays - the old mindset!
