Im switching jobs now too. Yes the market is wild but life is all about taking risks. If a company is hiring, its doing so because it needs employees and is planning for growth.

Gotta take care of number one. If you feel comfortable that you will have job security there then go for it.

EY gives you a peer mentor/counselor when you first join. Ask them to introduce you to others. There’s also a number of professional networks at EY that you can join. Once you start working on different teams and people you will start to to build your network too.

What role is this? Take it though, anyone hiring now has a need.

Talk to your counselor/peer advisor to introduce you to the group and maybe even specific groups who work on RPA. We held a welcome call for our interns. Then they pinged us to do 1-1 virtual coffee breaks. It may not be as effective as in person but you can at least connect names to faces and start from there!

Gets sign on bonus. As buffer if they layoff. Crazy times. Be smart when u jump ship.

I have excat same situation. I am in the process of switching to EY. Pretty good offer and bonus. Coming in as cloud architect Manager (M3). Not sure if I should switch or stay at current role.

As a % of salary, what’s a standard signing bonus?

I negotiated for 5% sign on. For me package was important than bonus.

What did you decide OP?

Update: Took the job!
