Any leads on Accounting or Finance jobs in the industry? Only 1 year of Big 4 experience under my belt and I’ve hit rock bottom due to exhaustion and lack of work life balance with a family.
Anyone else feel that exit ops aren't really that great out of consulting as the perception actually is? Maybe not for big 4 at least? I can't get shit anywhere and feel pretty worthless in the market
Please be kind, genuinely looking for help. Started my Grad School journey and really want an idea of the quality of school I can realistically aim for. My profile: M / 27 / AA 3.1 GPA Frm a State university 6 YOE (3 in Big 4 Consulting) Active in community Prez of a few orgs Frm Chicago 100% open to relocate 1st practice GRE: 304 (151- V / 153 Q) Looking to pursue a tech mgmt concentration.
Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?
What salary can I expect at a B4 org at D level + 20 Y with cloud certs and infosec certs (CEH, CISA, CISSP) ? Is $250K out of reach? A lot of co are reaching out to me at $125/hr.

I make $132k~ base+bonus before tax at a boutique in a T2/LCOL city (Atlanta, Houston, Salt Lake City). Good benefits, excellent culture and wlb. I'm an expert in my niche and overall a very conscientious and competent person. I get my work done in 20 hours or so each week. Some months I average less than 10 hours of actual work. I've been wanting to get a T15+ MBA for some time, but most exits have poor WLB. Am I crazy for wanting to leave my current gig? (cont)
Advice on dealing w/ difficult mgr? Specifically, she pushes team hard to get things to her review. Mgr doesn’t look at for 10-14days, then sends review comments and asks for updates by EOD/tmrw. Also not uncommon for her to interrogate team members about time they have charged, despite detailed time descriptions and hours being reasonable/in budget. Been 8 months working w her. I get anxious b4 mtgs w her. I have been interviewing. Unreasonable to ask counselor to roll off these engagements?

I’m wondering what Accenture is actually doing. Is it more like a Big 4 Firm, doing theoretical consulting things. Or is it more a IT-Service/ Outsourcing company like Connection, Atos, Bechtle, etc. doing hands on technical things? Where is the main focus on?
I'm 28 in DC and make 225k (150 base, the rest guaranteed bonus and RSUs). I am thinking of buying a place. Looking at townhomes in DC and it's hard to find something under 750k with most being over 800k. Wondering what the fish here think. Is that too much based on my income?
~$180k in student debt for $145k salary at 28 doing what you like (strategy consulting). Worth it? Is that salary good enough to handle the debt while still being able to prep for having a family?
Hey all, so I was initially informed my hiring process would be the following (Apple) HM interview -> Case study -> On site I completed case study last week and was informed it would take 1-2 weeks to hear back. I felt like I bombed the interview but ended up hearing back relatively quickly that I’ll be passed on for another interview (not on site). Since I am fed an additional interview before the on-site, does this mean my feedback was neutral?

Does anyone use Google Classroom for ECSE ? I was supposed to have it up and running by Thursday. Luckily, all of my kiddos came. I didn’t take the workshop this summer and the person that gave a brief overview last week talked so fast that I couldn’t understand what was being said.
Once we start traveling again, which loyalty program are you going to join and why? I’m thinking of moving from Marriott to Hyatt for example due to the point values being worth so much more.
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
WFH with a kid is making me less productive, so I end up working 30% longer hours to make up for it. But the longer I work, I get diminishing returns in productivity, so I have to work longer still. At this point, my mental stamina is just worn out. How do I fix this?

Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?
