Anyone had an interview with Stern as a reapplicant? I was admitted last year but couldn’t enroll due to personal issues so wondering if the interview might be different than the first one.
Interviewing tip needed: I feel like a diversity hire at most of the companies I have worked for. A sentiment that is felt by other diverse colleagues at my job. When looking for a new job, what questions can I ask to find this out before I join? How can I assess whether a company truly values my skillset, pay equally, & promote equally? Whether there are implicit biases at play? My current job has 2 diverse bosses at senior level so I took that as a good sign but I was wrong.
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

Recently got an offer in LCOL/MCOL for a senior tax accountant role for 87k. 3 years of public experience and have been in industry for almost a year. Current job pays about 5k more, but is a bit of a rarity in my city. New job’s team and culture are more appealing to me. Is the offer reasonable or should I try to negotiate? I’ve never negotiated before so I’m scared they might pull the offer. Thanks!

Whats the promotion levels in GDS - US Taxation?
So much anxiety about going full-time with Deloitte soon. I am interning with Deloitte now and I still have so much anxiety. Like I’m not doing enough even though I’m also doing school full-time. I keep reading awful things about how the culture is cutthroat and to “suck up” to managers but I’m not even sure how to do that? I’m just stressed I’m not doing enough. I just want to be able to succeed but I’m also so stressed with school and work. Is it really that hard to succeed here? Help please!!

Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”.

Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢
Can anyone tell me about Deloitte’s DCE departmental culture? I am interviewing with them so any insight is appreciate...
My mom decided that tonight she’d confess: 25 yrs ago she told me my 1st choice college did not give us any financial aid and I couldn’t go there (so I went where we had it). She admitted I almost got a free ride but she didn’t want me to go there so she lied. I feel betrayed. Loved my school and have no regrets. Just feel manipulated.
