Not sure if the local travel model is a pro or con as it varies based on practice, location and projects. Yes, the projects are local but I have a friend who has a daily (Mon to Fri) commute (1 - 1.5 hour each way since he lives in suburbs and client in downtown) with no wfh flexibility. I would prefer Monday to Thursday travel instead of that.

Just wondering. I make a decent middle class salary but do list my occupation as lawyer on OLD. I'm worried that someone I'm dating wants me more for my income potential than my personality. Any ways to tactfully address this? I'm not cheap but will probably not make near 6 figures for a while. I'm male dating female btw. Just wondering if people have experience with this

Just moved to a new city with a high COL for a job in a V10-20 firm. But we are still remote with no guidance on coming back. Partners conditioned my acceptance on relocating but it doesn’t seem necessary. I feel really isolated and don’t know anyone, and it’s difficult finding time to meet people obviously. I’m concerned about my mental well-being going forward. On a first year salary but live in a 1 room studio due to COL. Is this worth considering a lateral by next year? Thanks all.

Does deloitte follow a balance sheet or an income statement type approach to calculate your bonus? Meaning let’s say you had a bad year and the ratings were low and the hike was low. Then next year, if you do exceedingly well and are on the top of the scatterplot, do you get paid the highest? Or will you still be below some people because you had a low starting point compared to peers.

You know what guys, I’m just gonna say it. Big 4 Accounting firms are a damn joke. Just remember something when you’re pulling all-nighters, working weekends, breaking yourself to the bone trying to meet these unrealistic expectations because your firm decided they wanted to save some money. They don’t give a damn about you. You want me to do the work of two people? Great. Pay me for the work of two people. This is not a damn charity. Make no mistake folks, they can afford it. Auditor out ✌️
