Big4 company wants me to tell my current employer (big client) that I am intending to join them and sort of get a soft approval. This is before even giving a written offer. I have no interaction with anyone from this Big4 co, nor has anyone associated with both companies has helped. This is all after interview, offer negotiation, offer approval. Does this happen? Seems like I wasted my time.

As long as you don’t have a non-compete you are clear. There is no reason to do that before you resign, much less before you have an offer.

I don’t think it’s a legal issue, rather sounded like an optics issue

Strange ask...

Yes it’s to maintain client relations at the buyer level (whomever is writing the checks). It’s not really an approval it’s a notice of intent. Did you approach the Big4 or Big4 approach you? Is your existing relationship with the offering company as an audit client or consulting? All about appearance.

I had to do it since there was an audit relationship

Hi Everyone,

I'm Snr Lead Recruiter with a US staffing company and looking to transition my career into the role of a Business Analyst. I have a PG Diploma from Great Lakes in Business Analytics and Business Intelligence. Would appreciate any leads.

I just left my old firm and opened my own practice. I practice estate planning and elder law so it is not uncommon to meet clients at their homes or nursing facilities. Because we are in the middle of a pandemic and people are getting used to zoom conferences as well, I am considering foregoing a store front (at least until the pandemic is over). Has anyone opened their own firm and not opened a store front? If so, did that work? What were some things that helped you make it work? Thanks!

Coming from Consulting (3.5 YOE). Recently got an offer at a $3B Single Family Office. Very lean team working across all stages of investing but seems to be focused on growth / later stage private investing. Compensation is lower than expected ($130k all in). Great culture, really like the people. Coming from consulting, is this a no brainer take the job or should I be reconsidering my options? Also, what are some exit opportunities I can expect later down the road?
