Mobility is very different from our Rewards pillar (Rewards is primarily executive comp and compliance work). Mobility deals with expats and inpats, doing their tax returns and dealing with international tax issues. If you would enjoy doing that type of work (and you're cool with having a yearly mandatory busy season) then Mobility is a good fit. Always work to do in Mobility so you will stay busy. But just be sure it's what you want to do. If they hire you for mobility work it's hard to move to other pillars.


1040's- it's really just doing individual returns for people on assignment in a foreign country. Some high level executives may have to file a 5471, but most just need standard forms prepared on their behalf.


Do you know which pillar in PAS they are interviewing you for?

The email just said mobility role. My background is compliance and compensation

Do they prepare 5471 and 5472? Or just 1040?

Dang, so it's pretty much like Deloitte

Yeah. Other parts of PAS are great and super interesting, but mobility just seems to churn and burn staff constantly because it's just a lot of work and not very interesting most of the time

Not many exits into industry, unless you want to work in a company's global mobility department

Exactly. Most of the people that have left in the past few years either went in house to do mobility work or started at the bottom of another field/practice area trying to do something completely different.

Would either of you mind expanding on what exactly the other pieces of "people advisory" are? I'm going to do some googling, but wanted to hear from people that are obviously doing it. Is it tax background only?

Well, at Deloitte it's called Global Employer Services. There is the mobility tax, mobility compensation, compensation and benefits, and global rewards. I know that Global rewards deals with equity.

Basically anything to do with HR advisory, so compensation, benefits, TAS work related to employment/benefits, payroll/HRIS implementation, talent/workforce planning etc. But mobility is the largest and focuses most on tax compliance/immigration.

I second @EY 2. I'm an attorney and I work in our Rewards practice. Lots of comp work and tax technical projects.

Why are law firms utterly uninterested in seeking or receiving feedback from associates about how the firm (doesn’t) functions or is(n’t well) managed? Why is it always an exclusively one way street with the evaluations? Even when the firm is hemorrhaging lawyers. I mean this in all seriousness. I don’t get it. Of course, management doesn’t have to agree with all or even most of what the associates may say, but some insights could really strengthen the firm, and even make it more profitable.
