Props to American citizens making it clear that intentional child abuse is not an appropriate deterrent for illegal immigration. Huah! Go America 🇺🇸. Make Trump 🏳️ again!

For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.

I’ll be doing my first deposition ever via Zoom in a month or two. Any tips? Resources to read? Videos to watch? (I’m a rising second year associate who got hired during the pandemic. I really want to impress my new bosses, so I’m going to put in tons of non-billable time prepping)
Considering applying for an entry level business analyst (consulting) position at a competitor Big 4 firm. I just completed my first year in audit, so I’m wondering if it’s still appropriate for me to apply as entry level instead of experienced hire?
This may sound odd but I want to eventually work at all the big 4. To me it'll be like collecting infinity stones. Once you work at all 4, what crappy super power do you get? Currently 25% of the way there
I understand we have an honor system with return to office. I have a quite a few coworkers who haven’t taken the vaccine (lots of antivaxxers here) who have made it clear they intend to lie in order to return to office/client site. Is this normal at other firms or is this BAH only?
I think I found my wfh setup…
Anyone from big4 has experience in having its H1b transfer filed within a week after accepting the offer?
What accounting/industry firms (Big 4 and otherwise) offer seasonal positions for experienced professionals? At PwC we have the "flexible talent network" for people to work 3-6 months a year.
Hi all. Quick question - I had a phone call with a recruiter from EY about a Senior Consultant role in FSO. They mentioned that they'd sent my resume up and that others were very interested in connecting as well. I finished the recorded interview/game assessment yesterday. How long should I expect to be ball of anxiety in the shape of a human? My appreciation in advance!
Any tips on selling fun/silly/zany ideas? Is there a particular way to set it up so your internal team/client is more reciprocal to the idea?
Never thought I’d see the day that Droga is promoting creative roles on LinkedIn. Is it the Accenture effect, or is it on a really bad client/has D5 really lost its allure?
If I was going to make a transition to another firm (possibly Tier 2 or Big 4), when would be an appropriate time to do so? I have about 9 months of experience with IBM thus far. Wait 2 years? Less?
On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Stay on a project leaning absolutely nothing but get promoted because it’s a high profile client or ask to roll off the client and actually learn something but give up your chances on a promotion? Which is better?

Is it difficult to be hired in an MBB London office as an American? I’m trying to move to be closer to my boyfriend in the EU and have heard internal office transfers are a bit difficult, so should I apply directly to the office instead?
