Honest question: why are YOE so important? I mean I have interviewed a guy who supposedly had 20+ years of experience but he was sooo bad during the interview. Same thing with people flashing their certifications. Know people getting certified after having exam dumps but knowing almost nothing about the subject.

Interviewing for a commercial role at Accenture, working in federal spaces right now and I cannot deal with anymore Big4 fed work. Any insights on Accenture? Do managers have revenue/sales targets? Do you have to have 10 different "firm initiatives" or other non-chargeable work to look good for promotion?
The waiting game - I had my second round of interview yesterday. I am anxiously waiting for a callback for the final round. How many candidates usually get selected into the final round?
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)

anyone actually do the plaid take home case study? its a lot of work, especially if we aren’t familiar with APIs
I’m turning down a higher role with higher pay (12% higher) solely because the HR team has been extremely unhelpful throughout the decision making process. From not getting responses for weeks, to consistently receiving “I don’t know, let me follow up” then not receiving follow ups, and everything in between. All of the interviews leading up to the offer was great, but then red flags started popping up making me feel very uneasy joining this company. Have you ever denied an offer because of HR??
Anyone watch Arvind Subramaniam’s interview on NDTV. Slowing economy, exports and tax revenue down. BJP needs to wake up
I didn’t get a hair cut during COVID and it’s now pretty long. I keep it tied back and on camera it looks like it’s still short. Frankly, I want to keep it long. No one has said anything to me as yet, have even had a few in persons with partners. It’s 2021, do we care?
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

Folks - how do you prep for case interviews in half a week? Any resources you would point me towards? It’s been over 5 years since I last had interviews. Sure I am in consulting but I honestly don’t do this thing on the day to day so am very sure will be very rusty.
Looking to get some insights in PwC's bonus policies. I have an offer from PwC in their Salesforce practice and the bonus offered is a range of 27% to 35%. But they have not included that bonus % in the offer letter. For those who have worked at PwC, is this a norm? Have you seen them follow through the Bonus payout? Does the bonus % change significantly from YOY? What are the individual objectives/targets that need to be met at the Sr Manager level to earn the bonus?
