For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
Hello everyone! For everyone who attended Wharton MBA and will attend the program, how much did or will you get financial aid (excluding the Loans as I am not interested in them for now)? I read on their website about scholarships and such, but they do not seem to be a considerable amount compared to the tuition fees. Any tips or tricks to find other fundings to finance the program? Thank you!

Range for PwC DDV IT Senior Associate comp for Chicago? I currently have a little over 3 YOE (all in consulting) and no MBA.
Advice: if you do not know what to do after your MBA, do yourself a favor and do not apply. I've seen too many examples of people trying to figure it out in their 1st semester, it doesn't work & you will be stressed out. Recruiting goes by fast, and you need to prep before you step your foot on campus.
Transition to HRBP - which Cert? I’ve got the time and experience (mostly) to sit for the PHR or SHRM-CP. What are your recommendations based on industry experience. Also note I’m pivoting from a program director role.
Anyone have the CFF from the AICPA and willing to share their studying/exam experience? Curious about required effort, study plans, exam structure, overall opinions of the cert. Thanks!
Anyone else questioning getting an MBA in light of the pandemic and shifting sentiment on remote work? I started a job that’s fully remote and flexible. It’s in a fast moving industry and I feel like taking 2 years away can make me miss out on expected growth that will take place. 2 year grind and then working at some 9-5+ job that won’t be flexible and will likely have to go in office once things are back to normal. With current job I’m making good money and have more personal time.

Does anyone here know where I can find information related to Deloitte's policy for certification reimbursement? Particularly which certs you can charge straight to the AMEX vs ones you cannot?
First year in consulting here. Just curious, what are the most important things that enable a partner to sell their work? Quality of past projects / experiences, number of credentials (CFA, CPA, MBA, etc.), friendships / relationships? Some people in my group have no credentials, some one, etc. I really just wonder what I should emphasize after my day to day work in developing.
🐟 Fam. Does work stress plateau after reaching a certain seniority / comp range? How do you leveraged your income to reduce stress or increase enjoyment? Currently pulling 210k post MBA but am feeling especially pooped the week after 🦃 day 🥲.
Dumb question, but how do you actually give notice to your firm when lateraling away? Do you email hr, or just tell the partners you work with and assume they'll raise it with the necessary people? Also, is a phone call/email too informal and should I be attempting to try and catch people in person? Thanks in advance. First time lateraling out so not sure on the logistics.
Wieden ny layoffs: what happened?
You'd think I'd be used to waking up alone every morning by now! The loneliest part of WFH. :(
Beware of EY FAAS. They’ll have you interview for one location, tell you you’re fine to wfh, tell you they’re fine with you relocating later, and make it seem like you’ll be working on clients there. Then after they tell you they’re giving you an offer they’ll tell you they’re trying to map you to a different office while you’re out of state until you move to the original office location. Really insincere, why not just tell me you’d have to map me to a different office before or during interview

How to break into PM or TPM role in Big Tech? YOE: 4 YOPME: 1 BS: Petroleum Engineering MBA: T15 School
I’m bad at interviewing bc I can’t look at charts and come up with insights on the spot (it takes me a few minutes to process). But that doesn’t mean I’m bad at critical thinking. I feel like the interview process for MBB is flawed
I’m looking for an opportunity in either Berlin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, or London. Since my current responsibilities are Customer Service Ops and service/product improvement, ideal role would be Customer Experience related jobs. Personally, I’m eager to pivot my career and explore product management as well. I’m married to a person from Scandinavia, so I may be able to prepare for work visa by my own. If you have any recommendations or referrals, please reach me out! Thanks a million in advance!

When you have multiple offers and all are the same monetarily how do you identify which one is a better role? A manager at cognizant and a manager at big4 are different even if their salary and title is the same. The exit opportunities from big4 is much better...how then should we compare offers?
Considering an offer from Facebook for L5 Manager (Non-tech in recruiting) in Austin (remote). TC started at 178. Now 200 TC which I’m told is top of the pay band. Kinda confused because TC feels low for L5 people manager and pay sounds like L5 IC Austin pay. Any thoughts on if this is competitive or if you get a pay cut for working remote? Data to consider: interviews went really well, currently at Google (considering the move for growth to manage 12-20). No info on lvls.fyi for this role
