Do law firms have tracking/trading checks in place like Big 4? If so, is it as strict?

Could you be more specific? Are you referring to stock ownership limits ?

Yes, I meant being limited in terms of stock ownership, investments, mortgage lending, etc.

When I was at a Big Law firm there was no tracking. Big 4 tracks for auditor independence regulations.

Hey, anyone got leads for Dubai Big 4 Advisory Senior Manager compensation for candidates with EU/US experience? Thanks!


How many times a week do y’all consider quitting. I’m a lawyer by background, my husband is in big law making like 5x what they pay me in big 4, and we work very similar hours. I do everything around the house, with 2 kids. I hate house work. I strongly dislike childcare, all day. I’m okay outsourcing housework but I wouldn’t want to have a live in nanny bc they are my children and I want them growing up with my care. I’m just really burning out/struggling/ finding it difficult to stay motivatd


My friend has following offers from three companies after MBA (two offcampus and one from campus)

1. Finance Effectiveness/ EPM role at one of the Big 4
2. Deal Advisory role at one of the Big 4
3. Organization strategy role from one of the top consulting companies (not Big 4)

Which role offers the best exit options? All the offers from US support teams of the companies.
OS role offers better than the other two (only slightly), but I am interested in a good profile

Last week I gave an interview with
Deloitte India .

Interview went Great technically. But the hiring managers attitude was very bad. He was like I have been taking interviews since last month, (all candidates have been good and I was like whyTF are you not hiring them then.)

Then he said HR will call you for documents submission. Havent heard ever since.

I myself take interviews, make sure to give feedback to candidates at the end of interview.
