Wow. We were just sold to LPL as well with the transition happening end of Q1. A bit of concern that LPL is getting bigger a little too quickly...


I think you are delusional if you think that LPL is going to let anyone from this employee channel go hybrid. I don’t care who your CEO lives next door to.

Wow! So your firm is still in transition. What have you learned so far? Any pitfalls?

They're taking their sweet time providing details. Nothing substantial yet, but it seems like an improvement overall in our particular case.


What is the retention bonus going to be is what I’m wondering

Great question, though I'm not expecting anything huge

W&R payout grid was crap when I was there. Maybe you'll see an improvement?

Laid off last Nov. Have built up a steady freelance stream since and it’s working. Shit, it’s lucrative. But I miss being in the game. Can I get back in? Should I?

Is it common that big 4 firms will hold you back for a year if you come from a non-big 4 firm? Do you think it’s worth the change if they do that?


I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.


Can you go on business trip outside of US while on H1B?
