We have several reservists in my office. The firm has to be accommodating. People respect that they are serving our country.

How long is the basic training for the NG or Reserves? I wanted to join now that I'm out of school. I have a law degree and would like to a JAG reserves if possible, but don't know if the firm would let me.

like

Yeah as D1 said from what I have seen they are very supportive and the mandatory training each year is never an issue as well as adjusting travel to make his flights ( my friend flew helicopters) but he always got the time he needed

We also have had several go on leave, multiple times over the years, and then they return. All good. Follow your heart. EY will be supportive.

Every firm should be supportive, I have a team member who has to leave for a weekend in reserve a day earlier - told her absolutely no problem and thanks for the service!

Here's the laws regarding employers and NG/Reserve time. Good luck! https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/usao-ednc/legacy/2011/04/29/EmploymentRights.pdf

If you ever get deployed, the firm will pay you the excess of your military salary to match ypur public salary. Also pay no social security on what the firm pays you when deployed

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

After really bad experiences at ACN, I'm sooooo excited to accept an offer to another firm. From S&C Consultant to Manager in Big 4. From 100k to 160k. I, and HUNDREDS of others, remember how we were treated on the call center work. How you burned us at year end then paid out bonuses to EVERYONE in 2021, even new joiners who weren't with the firm in 2020 (much less saving your a$$es on call centers contracts). Oh, and not to mention laying off so many people I personally invested in (contd)
