Did any of the Big4 start furloughs or layoffs in US?

EY said no layoffs


EY on hold until July 1



If it happens, they will do it together.

No, thankfully. EY slashed bonuses; that’s all I’ve heard happening thus far in US offices. Praying everyday.

KPMG cut bonuses a lot. Most big 4 firm actions will move in step, so dont feel left out.

There is no judgement in this post, just curiousity. I've seen a lot of my republican HS classmates and folks from my hometown really lean into the Lab Leak theory for Covid origin. I'm not invested in any of the theories, just open to seeing what comes out of the research and investigations.

That said, why are Republicans so tied to the Lab Leak theory? Of course the WSJ article today was an interesting development, but even before that there was a lot of buy in from the right.

Need advice on interviews. I have not interviewed since my first career, which was 3 years ago. Currently working at the Big 4. Focused on SOX but mainly IT. What are some questions/ websites/ videos that I should look into? One position is Sr. Internal audit and the other is security compliance.


MBB salary segmented by level please?


Seems like a lot of struggling agencies did layoffs right before memorial holiday, am I right?


So I’ve found a startup I want to work for. They hired a CLO earlier this year. Is it crazy to try to reach out to him and express interest if they have no legal job postings? FWIW I have good experience and am at a well regarded firm.
