Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!

Stay at Deloitte as an M and try for SM promotion in 2023 or try to level up now at another firm? Current base is $185K with 12 YOE. M&A IT. I know M to SM moves across firms are tough. Assuming I can make the transition for argument’s sake, should I invest my free time in the holiday season into making the transition? Reasons for moving: Cut down M to SM timeline by a year or two, potentially increase my pay from $185K to the mid $200s.

Virtual Juneteenth celebration anyone? This is one year especially that I don't want Juneteenth to just go by without me actually celebrating or acknowledging it. Shamefully I have not done so as much in the past. Anyone up for a virtual celebration and/or know of any? I know Deloitte is not giving us the day off… I am thinking of taking it as PTO anyway.
