The glass door salaries for London are accurate for what they offer rotators

Likely switching big 4 firms as a manager shortly and it has me thinking about independence issues. I assume that a number of securities that are green lighted at KPMG will be restricted at my new firm and I’ll be required to sell them. I’d rather not sell as most of them have large unrealized gains. I know independence is largely self reported, but they do do audits. How do they detect unreported brokerage accounts? Any one have experience?

Thinking of moving from B4 to Accenture or Slalom. I mostly do Epic stuff. Pros seem to be no audit/independence crap, less travel, more tech work. Any cons?

I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞
