Do Big 4 give more time to settle down in the new job compared to a mid size? Does it work the same way when people are asked to improve before the firing i.e, big 4 gives more time to improve?

Yes yes. Unless you murder someone (or cheat on the CPE trainings if at kpmg), they won’t fire you. It took me almost 2 years to counsel out my low performing staff - but in the end she left by herself. That’s how long it takes so you are safe.

Does anyone know if MBB (Toronto) is hiring a lot these days?

Also, my spouse is thinking of potentially moving to the states next year. Do you know if US MBB helps new hire with their H1B visa?

I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?

Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.

Not necessarily investment advice, but I am applying for an EIN for my LLC. Single member LLC, plan on doing social media and possibly some consulting work depending on the client. My question is should I file a Form 2553 to have my LLC have an S corp status? I would like to use the revenue to pay my rent or for other discretionary income outside of my 9-5 (less than 2k/mnth). So does it make sense to do a form 2553 so I can pay myself as the sole prop, deducted that payroll from taxes?
