For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Divorced M 🐠 here who's scared of commitment now. For people looking for an LTR, how certain are you about someone b4 you decide to go exclusive? For e.g. 25% or 75% that he/she is the right person?
Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)

Almighty partner one, we know your identity will remain a secret, but can you reveal to your followers if you are in the MBB, big 4 or other?
Are there any Israeli fishes here that can share their perspective on how unionizing has affected the Big 4 in Israel? Currently this may be the only country where big 4 accountants have union membership & collective bargaining agreements, so I'm curious what the motivations were and whether you feel it's been worth it https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-ey-first-israeli-accounting-firm-to-sign-collective-labor-agreement-1001195205
Are big 4 final interviews always with a partner or can they sometimes be with just an MD?
Super naive question but how does one go about shifting to a different big 4 and then leverage a raise/ higher position? Do you get contacted by recruiters or reach out? Thinking to switch next year

I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?
Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.
If you leave T2 to join MBB, would it be seen negatively by your old firm (if you ever need the alum network) or am I overthinking this

I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
Have you were been asked to do a ballpark budget and provide director options before officially getting hired for a project? Feels like a lot of phone calls and research if they're still interviewing other candidates...
Just got off a two hour workshop with a client and was too scared to say anything and speak up even though I probably had good points. How do you get over the fear of being wrong or sounding stupid? I feel like I let my team down.
Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
Greetings fellow HR members, I am currently looking for my next opportunity and looking at HR business partner/ HR Generalist or Associate HR manager￼￼. I’m open to remote work and East Coast and Midwest￼. Thank you for your Help.
Which among the FAANG has the best work culture
~4 months ago I had a corp strategy interview at Tmobile. The case question was “should we enter the video streaming market?” After going through the case I concluded that no they shouldn’t. At the end of the interview they let me know that they haven’t publicly announced it yet but they actually are entering the market (with Tvision). Lo and behold I didn’t get the next interview. Today they announced they’re shutting it down. 😂
