Thanks dude

EY does not drug test

I have not heard about it or was tested when I interned or started full time like couple of years ago

I was drug tested when I worked at PWC because I was working on a project at an IB for a few months and the client required it.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

I’m currently working as a design consultant at a big 4 & it’s my first job as a designer. I’m doing a lot of strategy work and haven’t done any design work at all. Although I want to find a new job, I don’t have any design experience to add to my portfolio to be competitive in recruitment. I’d love to get some advice from people who hired consultants or were once consultants but now working at agency or in-house on how to market yourself during recruitment.
