How many YoE do you have?


I’d kill to be at a BB, but I’m not at KPMG anymore or big 4 for that matter.

That gap is too large. Go 150k. Prestige doesn’t pay your bills.


The 110 is with 70% bonus and the 150 is with 100% bonus

Associate 100%.


Honestly, I’d go do M&A finance at a tech company.

There are M&A finance roles specifically but could also look for corporate development analyst roles.

Come do tech M&A at SVB

Is that what you switched to? Can I get the elevator pitch?

I have joined PwC AC in Advisory practice in Dec (Around 45days back) . I've not got the project yet and still on bench. I connected with deployer and Coach 2-3 times, they said they are in process of allocating. What should I do now? Is it something to worry about? How my performance will be evaluated and appraisal will be affected? Will I miss bonus (Variable pay which was verbally promised by HR)? Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks in advance


Planning to move to Deloitte from EY purely for salary reason. Any thoughts ?


Sorry for this post. I generally half heartedly listen to "I had a dream last night" stories. First off they are yours not mine and secondly the actions never actually happened.

How is the work culture at Infy. Is there any logging of work hours. Mandatory check in check out? How many leaves. Is it better than Accenture or worse than it, in case someone has worked at both.


If I start a new job this month and contributed 17k to my Big4 401k this year, do I just tell the new 401k how much % to take from each pay check to hit 2500 from now till Jan? How will they be able to know if I accidentally go over?


One of my coworkers started complaining that I didn't wear a mask on a Zoom call, because I might "infect the people coming into my house". That so-called person is my house cleaner, and we're both triple vaccinated and are fine not wearing masks. Should I tell my coworker to mind their own business?
