I know managers who keep declining promotions in Advisory because they aren't required to sell and they don't want to be a director.

Depends on your business unit - better opportunities outside the firm a lot of times - just find the right one.

Did away with up or out long ago. If you are hitting your objectives and everyone is happy, you seem to be able to status quo for as long as you want. Remember though, new, eager and fresh youngin' keep coming up every year. As long as you can constantly reinvent yourself at your level, YBY.

So, a month ago I was offered a data engineer position at a fintech firm. I was going to accept it. The interview process had taken over a month. Then, at the last minute, an old coworker/friend - who is a manager at FAANG now - randomly offered me a data engineer __contractor__ position at a FAANG. The rate was really good - more than the fintech company was offering as annual salary. Rate was 160/HR and fintech was 275K TC. The benefits are ok - it’s a W2 contractor. But I’m thinking of...

How do you negotiate vacation time? For example, if I have a trip already cleared that’s about 9-10 days off in the next 2 months at my firm but go in-house (final round upcoming with me and another candidate meaning it’s at least 50/50), I don’t really want to start and then lose say 10 of 15 allotted vacation days right away. Anyway to negotiate those as exempted? Apologies if a stupid question, pretty new to this process

Beware of EY FAAS. They’ll have you interview for one location, tell you you’re fine to wfh, tell you they’re fine with you relocating later, and make it seem like you’ll be working on clients there. Then after they tell you they’re giving you an offer they’ll tell you they’re trying to map you to a different office while you’re out of state until you move to the original office location. Really insincere, why not just tell me you’d have to map me to a different office before or during interview
