Is Accounting really worth it on the long term? I noticed a lot of people are ok with their salary but not necessarily in terms of WLB. I wasn’t informed very well when I used to be a student, but now it seems a lot of others paths and career suggest a great salary for a 40-45hr work week. What are your thoughts ?
Considering applying for big 4 audit job, can someone knowledgeable please provide me the current salary range for S3 auditor in Southern California area? With CPA and without if it makes a difference. Thanks in advance!
I’m hearing that a recession is undoubtedly going to happen. Will we be impacted as Consultants and if so, to what extent?
RSM has an Ownership presentation that's available to all managers and above. actually gives transparency about partner admittance process and compensation. other firms should follow suit if they don't (I was an SM at big 4 and could never find any info)
Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc. Should I consider moving to capgemini considering WLB. Will big 4 release me as I am still being onboarded. Also If they ask me to serve notice, will capgemini wait for me during notice period at big 4. Please help guys.
PwC wtf is this sharing rooms at PwC University? Why do I work for a Big 4 if we can't even afford to have our rooms at a mandatory training? Anyone that's done PU what's the deal?
How does one go about making the jump to FP&A as a senior audit associate at big 4? Any self-marketing tips, certifications/courses recommended?
Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?
What non traditional way did you get into cyber?

Why does international tax think they are better than everyone else? Is it just the teams I’ve had to work and communicate with or is this the norm?
Have offers from Firm A (5k employees 1B revenue) & Firm B (2k employees 200M revenue) to come in as a senior manager and create/build a new, niche tax practice similar to what I played a pivotal role in building at a B4. My biggest issue at B4 has been the big firm BS (hard to get things approved, slow moving, high performers not rewarded appropriately). What’s the right balance between the resources/client base of a larger firm and the autonomy/pay of a smaller firm? How small is too small?
Partners, at B4 I’ve heard that after 10 years you become fully vested in the partnership. What all does that mean with regards to shares / other benefits (vs. say a 9-year partner)? Thanks!
My wife is approached by a B4 consulting firm and she is really keen on being in consulting since her college days. But we have a 15 month old and she is in a fix if it’s possible for both of us to be consultants post covid world while taking care of our son. I’m supportive of her career move, but I don’t know any consultant couple w kids. Would appreciate if anybody has any words of advice if it’s doable and what can we expect if my wife becomes a consultant.

What's the longest period of time you have had to wait to get credentialed before starting a new position?
Does anyone feel that there is literally no end to learning? Where do you stop? At what point do you become okay with not knowing everything?
Sent an email to someone with an OOO, but I also have an OOO... Is outlook smart enough to stop the cycle?
You know you've become too obsessive when the last thing you think about before going to bed is the set of slide headlines you just wrote.
Question: how many of you guys have hooked up with people at work? And if so, how many and what happened?
