Anyone work in transfer pricing at a big4? Curious of salary range for a manager 1/2 in a mcol location
It just came to my attention that the AA lady on my team is trying to sabotage my position by trying to portray me as incompetent to our white co workers. We are only 2 black people on the team and the only reason am still on is because the white believe in me more than the other black person on the team.
Is a 2 week notice still standard? Once I leave, my team will have a huge workload, and I feel bad. I’ve tried to tell my boss several times that our workload is too much, but she kept adding on.

So this guy and I started talking 2 months ago. Things were great but recently he told me that he didn’t know if he really wanted a relationship.

Hi, I am from a non-tech background and got offers from a Cybersecurity startup and Amazon for a Risk Analyst role (more general security than cybersecurity). I aim to start a career pivoted towards cybersecurity. But not sure which would be a wise choice given the startup will offer me learning opportunities tailored to the role, however Amazon would be a great addition to the profile and a bigger pay of course. Would be happy to have thoughts from professionals here!

Just finished AUD, and I have REG and FAR left. Suggestions as to start REG or FAR next?
Can’t make it to the testing center today due to snowstorm. I emailed both Prometric and NASBA, is there any way they will allow to reschedule? Or do I need to re apply for NTS?
After a two year break, I’m finally getting back into studying for the CPA exams. Any recommendations on which exams I should take in a specific order? For additional context, my working experience is around bookkeeping and controller level accounting, so I was think to start with either FAR or BEC.
Taking FAR on Dec 4th and scored a 20% on my first stimulated exam. Feeling so defeated. Idk how to even study anymore. Do i go back and make notes or just do MC?
I’m currently studying for AUD using Becker. Which modules in each section (A1-A6) would you put most emphasis on revisiting after one time through reading and MQCs?
Anyone who has had success with Ninja have suggestion as how to use? They say watch all vida then hammer MCQ while cycling notes. Havent had success w becker alone while working
How many days did it take for your ethics exam score to show on your state boards cpa portal? I'm in Illinois and clicked the AICPA option to send my score electronically but I might email it over now.
What’s the best way telling people that I failed my exams and will give up on it without my boss thinking I’m incompetent to pass an exam?
I’m currently applying for the NYS CPA licenses. Can I ask a person who work less than a year with me to sign the experience verification form for me? Or it needs to be signed by a person who you worked over a year with? Thank you!
Trying to study Audit and doing fairly good in MCQs but the SIMs are complete over the head...any advise?
Any tips for AUD? It looks like pass rates have been pretty low in 2019. I should be done with the book today, have the exam Monday. Not sure what to focus on for my review tomorrow.
I have my last exam (FAR) on Monday and I am beyond burned out. I still have to do the last 3 becker sections (NFP & Gov Accounting Parts 1, 2, & 3) on top of reviewing everything else. Any tips of things I should review the most? I have been studying the past month but not super intense because I am so burned out… I passed the other 3 by using the cram method in 2 weeks for REG, 1 week for AUD, and 2 weeks for BEC. Is it possible to cram for FAR and be ok?
FYI: if you took another exam this quarter you can see if you passed the 2nd exam! View the score report and check the CREDIT or NO CREDIT next to your 2nd exam. "Eyeball trick" :)
Has anyone used NINJA CPA notes & MCQs exclusively for studying for their exams? The materials seem all over the place to me and I’m having to use those huge Becker books which I don’t want to but they’re better structured and easy to follow IMO.
Does anyone doubt the new version of Becker? I feel like it's skimping out on a lot of information that was in the prior version for audit... concerned I'm not getting enough information coverage through the new Becker
I got a 72 on AUD after just getting a 74 on FAR. FML & yes that was my second time taking those exams. I got a 55 on AUD and a 39 on FAR the first time I took them courtesy of a live review course 🙄
Random thought - studying for Audit (specifically fraud factors) and just reminded me of that time when Jim and Dwight from the Office created a fictitious employee to get a higher commission 😂
