For everyone asking where they should move to work. Here’s a list. San Francisco, LA and NYC all surprisingly made the cut. https://theurbandeveloper.com/articles/best-20-cities-to-work-in
Any firm happy hours in ATL today?
Been awhile since I travelled so I’m not sure what the airports are like anymore. Flying out of DCA to BOS with a 645am door close. What time should I arrive? It’s myself, wife, 5 year old and infant in lap (the worstttt). We have CLEAR and TSA Precheck. What time should we arrive to DCA if boarding starts at 6?
NFTs. I get it on principle. I’m there for it! But I read headlines and basically art NFT space is like buying sneakers. They’re a big deal if you think they’re a big deal. But yeah, I guess that is art. Idk… I scroll through open sea and it’s like a church rummage sale of crap. I desperately want to join in the excitement of this new and next thing, but beyond licensing… which requires demand first… I guess I don’t get it.
I know I’ve made it because I’m in my Lyft on my way to ORD and Karma Chameleon comes on the radio.
Is D flexible in allowing moves to cities away from their home office e.g. Aligned to NY, wants to move to San Diego
Have you noticed (either in school or in person) that social-distancing and cleaning standards are becoming more lax?
Flying into DCA, DC is one of the prettiest, greenest cities I’ve flown into. I was listening to Kygo so that could be it too.
Hi all. I’m planning a California trip for a week: 3 days in the South (Garden Grove, LA) and 3 days in San Fran. Please give me any recommendations about what to do or Asian restaurants/dessert/boba/coffee that I can’t miss 😋. Much appreciated.
senior consultant level at EY in tech transformation PM work - how much will WLB vary by project? Been on the same project for over 2 years with low hours and incredible team culture, but expecting 25%+ raise if I leave D
Quantifying work life balance... how much would annual salary value would you place on not having to work 60+ hours and have a steady 40hour work week with the occasional crunch around deliverables?
An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?
So, any NON standing desk recommendations? I don’t really like standing desks. I’d like something that looks decent, that has at least some storage, with a good amount of… square footage, I guess?
I have an offer to join Commercial Assurance but I’m not sure what career path that could lead me to if I was to leave Big 4 - thoughts?
Question for EY moms - my husband and I are thinking about starting a family soon, so I was looking up the parental leave policy to see what my options are. I know some firms have clawback clauses that require you to come back to work for a specific period of time or else you have to pay back the salary you received while on leave, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the EY policy. Does this mean EY doesn’t have a clawback clause for parental leave, or is it just hidden away somewhere? TIA!
Which Big 4 firm will be first to cut U.S. salaries? Will it happen tomorrow night, Sunday night or Monday? It's coming people it's most definitely coming.
Nothing new here I guess, but still putting it out there... I am an educated, smart, successful woman. But these days I see myself as a mother of two who is barely surviving at life when she is used to “killing it” at work. Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.
having a really hard time getting my 3 yo boy (very smart, energetic, somewhat spoiled) to be better to his 11 month old brother (very mellow, sweet and smiley). my toddler will scream in the baby's face, slap him, and today grabbed him so hard by the neck that the baby fell forward onto his face. Ashamed that I was so upset I slapped my toddler after (once, not hard). I try giving the toddler plenty of attention. Baby is now scared of his older brother. Has anyone gone through this?
Accenture CN peeps, my manager has not been able to staff me to a project for 2 weeks now after my release from one of the projects where the role as as good as content manager’s. I had voluntarily asked for my roll off as the role was just to upload come content on various platforms. They tried allocating me to some internal project but I asked them to staff me on a client facing project. I want to know what is the impact of all this on your performance or relationship with manager etc.?

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 🤷🏼♀️
Finally got my YE! Was hoping to at least get a 3 after hearing about all the layoffs and the 4's going around. Got a 2 and I am EXTREMELY relieved! 🙌🏻🎉 Now I can really start my weekend! 😎🍾
Currently in the lateral interview process and have had a few interviews a week. Does anyone else feel drained by this process? The time spent preparing for and attending interviews feels like a second job.
