Considering leaving audit after 1.5 year in audit with B4 to do an FP&A role with a publicly traded company, not F500. Is FP&A a good jump? Is it too early? It will be a 20% pay bump, better hours, seems like I will learn more and be better prepared for future finance roles. Already have my CPA. What do you think?
Anyone got their passports back from the consulate within 2-3 days after the H1 visa status showed administrative processing?
Perspectives on Managing Director (newly promoted) base and variable comp across big 4 and equivalent firms looks like these days?
If I get rejected after final rounds at Big 4 is it weird to immediately apply to the same firm but different role? Will they know I just got rejected? Experienced hire btw
Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
I just got an appointment for collecting my h1b stamp in Jamaica nov 5. Many openings there if anyone needs.
Folks, I am on a work visa in the US and can legally work for one one employer. I am about to open a business and was thinking if I can register the company in my home country - is that allowed?
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook). Any tips on what to emphasise? Mckinsey + IB background with LBS EMBA; South African so would need that visa sponsership.
Posting for my cousin - Deloitte 🐠 can anyone share their timeline from offer to h1b transfer? She is looking to take 2 weeks between job but not sure if it’s an issue. TIA!

I’m from a country in Asia. What’s the best (I’ll also add easiest in terms of work visa) city to kickstart my overseas career? 3 years experience. Single. With real work that won awards.
Anyone know how much PwC audit director makes? Or other big 4 equivalent of that? Thanks.
How does Deloitte corporate Amex work? Am I expected to use it for all travel? Or can I book hotels etc on personal and expense them later. If it matters, I am joining FDD practice

For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA
I have a layover of about 5 hours at Amsterdam. Flying with KLM from USA to India. Any idea if I need a transit visa? Thanks folks!
L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
MBA 🐠 I took the GRE after undergrad. Happy with the score. Should I still take the GMAT before applying?

How are others handling moving office home when you are in your late 60s? I am re-Vising my practice from trial practice to probate and estate planning with some PI. No one wants to buy any of the textbooks or other trial books or medical books I have. For those of you who also are changing their practice, how dealing with the expense of practice stuff you bought but no one wants anymore? My binders were dropped off at eight at an elementary school. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
🐠 friends - anyone make money off a side hustle? $1K/month would be fantastic, but I'd settle for even $100. Before you judge, I had some unexpected medical bills, racking up an extra $6K in cc debt

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection. The pay seems similar (my OTE is about 400k; 8 YoE, individual contributor) but I imagine the hours are better and it can be fun if you like solving customer problems, to challenge customers, and building relationships
Anyone interested in a Digital Project Manager role in industry? I just made the move and wanted to share the wealth. Drop me a note if interested.

Does anyone know if India has visa on arrival for American passport holders? Friend’s father passed away and he does not have a visa currently. Wondering if he has no options till the consulate opens. Thanks in advance!
Alright moms. 4th kid in daycare and this one just won’t nap. We send a portable white noise machine and she has a lovey. But she apparently has serious FOMO. I’ve asked them to move her to the furthest corner. Then moved her to the younger baby room. But I’m out of ideas. 11 months old (10 mo adjusted). I had chalked it up to just starting at daycare but we are almost 2 months in. She’s a hot mess in the evenings. What magic do you have for me. All of my others fell in a routine by now!
