I got recruited for an in house position...3 months pregnant. I know I am not guaranteed parental leave, what are the pros/cons of telling the interviewer about my condition?
Seeking advice on how to choose between a mid tier technical accounting advisory offer and Big 4 audit. Worked in audit at a local firm and wanted a bigger platform. Would love to switch to advisory to be more well rounded. Mid tier advisory offers higher salary but also thinking big 4 has a better platform and maybe better exit opportunities in the long run? Insights please.
PWC fish Recruiter reached out for M/SM role in Ops practice. What are the levels/cohorts in M/SM and what's the base/bonus target for each? TIA
Can anyone recommend a wireless drawing tablet? I’m not a designer but picking up that role in my freelance gig and my track pad is starting to really cramp my hand. Thanks!
Looking to jump to Microsoft but the recruiters I have reached out to have been pretty quiet lately and haven't said much about an.interviee..in the cyber space, lots of experience, clearances, they just aren't interested, normally take a long time to respond (been a couple of weeks), are they slowing down hiring, other? Thanks
Senior up for promo to manager in audit in next year. Have decided I do not want to be an auditor. Which of these paths do you think is best? 1. Stay 1 more year, exit to industry with manager title. 2. Move to advisory internally, but most likely would have to do one more year in audit and move as audit manager to advisory sr 3. Exit immediately into industry to try for accounting manager title / senior accountant or sr fin analyst 4. Exit immediately to advisory senior at another big 4 firm
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
I got laid off in the most disrespectful and demoralizing way. I was sad and depressed. Then the clouds parted, and the sun came back out. I focused on positives. I gave out good vibes. I helped a bunch of people. I tried to not get dragged down in spite and bitterness. It was really hard! Best part? I just got hired after only 3 weeks off and it’s for somewhere better (a TRULY independent shop!) I’m making more money and will be working with people who seem talented, capable, and smart.
Has anyone negotiated a clause where you can’t be fired/laid off for a certain amount of time after starting a new job?
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
When does the 60 day grace period start - after lay off announcement or after last severance paycheck? Thanks
It’s been a week since a second round interview for a local government position. They said they would be in touch “soon”. Is a week too soon for me to send a follow up email? I just don’t want them to think I’m not interested or forget about me..
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
For those companies / roles with unlimited pto, how does a payout work if you leave and /or are laid off? Receive nothing or some set amount?
What other firms are experiencing FS layoffs? Sounds like majority PwC based on previous posts.
Any stories about how the independence policies at Big 4 have practically affected your personal finances? Would also love to hear how consulting business is affected by not overlapping audit clients
Do MBB hire people who are on H4 EAD. Not specifically for consulting but for any roles.
Thoughts on Jabian consulting? Up for promotion in July, and got presented to interview with Jabian. Working on getting to Capgemini Invent right now after my promotion. Jabian is offering a much better salary but its a boutique firm. Should I consider Jabian, or go to Capgemini Invent and get better exit opportunities?
I'm sick of these politicians and their empty campaign promises. I want my Badacaf-care now!
MBB experienced hires, how long did it take you to make the switch (from start of networking to final offer)? How long did your interview prep take you?
I recently heard a client talking about the sex wage gap as if it were real. I declined to engage since I didn't want to irritate the client. However, I thought this had been conclusively dispelled? There is no statistical disparity in pay for the same work between the sexes right? How do you correct this fallacy with a client? Is it worth it?
The PL on my case makes every feedback feel like a personal attack - not only towards me, but towards everyone else on the team. He is unpredictable and choleric - should I raise this topic in my...
I'm at EY in the FSO Tax service line and I am hating it, should I switch service lines or go to a different Big 4 firm? If so, which firm has been the best as for as work life balance.
I recently accepted an industry exit offer at 2 YOE. I have taken vacation for the last two weeks and am meeting with my talent manager today to let them know. They think we are meeting to discuss the pipeline for next week. Any advice for the conversation? I have enough PTO to last until my start date in mid August. Can I expect to take all of it?
Anyone hiring an analyst/associate that is actively involved in the self storage investment space? Looking in the Chicago area or potential remote work. Message me.
ZS vs. Slalom? Money is very similar for roles at both with focus on LS compliance so just asking for a sense of culture and WLB
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
I need serious advice. I’m so sick of the one matrimonial site I’m on. Any suggestions on which ones actually work? Any success stories from those of you who went this route? 30F fwiw.
My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
