Serious question: how difficult is it to get straight up fired from big 4? Outside the layoffs last year, I have personally never seen anyone let go for any reason. There's always some PIP or transferring projects or some long review process that never goes anywhere. Anyone have any insight or stories? Just looking for some perspective.
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.
I'm hearing that more H1B Executive orders are expected as early as July. Likely changing LCA wage levels and filing fees... Stay tuned. The ride has only begun.

Is it possible to use the Amex gift cards (Cathy cash, applause awards) to trade in a brokerage account? I'm guessing the answer is no. Curious if anyone has made it work.
Good credit card to open? Thinking Amex gold - anyone have it and recommend? Or any others?
Best airline to transfer chase points to??
Can your employer sponsor a green card without H1B with Partner sponsorship? Currently on OPT and exploring that option. And if so, what is the GC process and the PERM process and how long would I be committed to my current employer?
Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already
Have you ever negotiated severance in a job offer? Not planning on getting laid off, but no one ever is.
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?

So I’ve finally booked a good amount of PTO and got it approved. I’m stressing about taking the PTO. Is this what peak burnout/consulting feels like?
Important Zoom Person, “Could everyone go on mute.” Text from coworker, “We can hear you poop.”
Came out of a pretty toxic work environment and therapist has basically said I have PTSD. Trying to get past it, while aiming to excel in new team but finding it hard to voice my thoughts/opinions given previous experience. Also experiencing the beginnings of burnout, caring for a 4 year old and full time work. Oh and any thoughts of promotion are truly gone...any ideas on work strategy?
What’s the most offensive thing people said to you at work? Trying to navigate the being an a$$ and success consultant culture

Looking to create electronic employment files. Do most of you do this in-house or use a data management company? If a company, which one? Looking for advice/tips. Thanks!
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
