Interviewing for an assistant underwriting job, I meet all requirements except for knowledge of medical terminology and anatomy. I minored in forensic science so I’m familiar with medical terminology/anatomy but unsure if this will make or break my interview, they might be looking for medical professionals? Position has been up for over a year as they are unable to find a qualified candidate. Any advice?

I have a business case interview with Acumen/Salesforce for a Marketing BA role. I’ve never done a case interview before, but I’m wondering if it will be asking about best uses for Salesforce/marketing cloud in the scenario provided, or if it’s a typical case? The recruiter said it’ll be interactive and test problem solving.
Hi fishes, I had cleared 3 rounds of interviews and a written assignment for a role in Aruba (HPE subsidiary). Now they said the job role is on hold for a few months. Candidates having offer are also put on hold. That doesn't seems fair considering a candidate has cleared all rounds of selection. Is this happened with anyone?

I’m thinking about applying at WTW for a Senior Account Manager role in the Chicago office. How do referrals work at WTW? Also, I have 4 years of experience in group captive insurance programs as well as most ancillary lines on the broker side. Does anyone else have group captive experience and could provide some advice on best companies to move to where I can use that expertise? I want to move to a larger company since I’m at a small place with not much room for growth currently.
I have an interview coming up with Deloitte for a Senior Associate - PMO role in Transaction services in Middle East. I have been told that process would include a case interview stage. I am aware of Consulting type cases but how are Transaction service cases different to consulting? What would I expect, an M&A type case? Also do I need to know any financial modelling in this case interview as I come from Programme management background?

**Edit: Located in Toronto.
I’ve been offered an associate position at PwC Ireland for €36k. I’m from South Africa, and I have over 18 months of work experience. I started as a graduate last year and I was promoted in January 2022 and again in July 2022. My bottom line going into this was 50k, but I don’t know how to effectively negotiate for what I want. For context, Dublin cost of living is quite expensive, and there’s a massive housing shortage, which means rent is sky high. Any negotiation advice will be appreciated!

I just decided I'm gonna go natural after being relaxed for 15 years. I really don't want to big chop and am ok with transitioning slowly. I'm not very comfortable with short hair. Nothing is wrong with my hair now, its pretty healthy for relaxed hair. I just want a change. I would like some tips on anyone who has done it this way. Anyone who may be 4A or 4B. For the most part, I remember what my natural hair looks like, and I'm thinking I will fall in one of those categories.
I’m having job conversations with MLB and would love to get some insight on the culture, salary growth, professional growth, etc.

What does everyone think about the EY news?
I’m considering joining EY in London. Currently at a boutique consultancy. I joined Fishbowl to try to get a sense ‘from the inside’ of the Big4 as I don’t have close contacts I can ask. I’ve seen a lot of griping in the other channels from more junior staff about comparatively low pay, EY not keeping up, clunky tech, etc. Is that just normal / expected grumbling? Would be really interested in the Partner perspective on this. Feel free to DM if more appropriate. Thanks!
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.
Did you make a "Resolution" for this year? If so, what was it? I'm working on spending more time with my family, and staying away from tech to the best of my ability on Sundays.
We have some at my firm leaving to be a direct entry partner at EY consulting. He was told he will benefit from the split the same way all other EY partners will. Anyone know if that is accurate?
What are some key ways you balance stress and not taking it out on others/family? It's something I'm always working on but none of us are perfect. That said, I've made vast improvements. During the winter it's always harder as I feel many of my outlets are limited [like golf etc]
What is the comp model for partners at A&M
I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?
Guys - can anyone share earnings at BDO and RSM at 1-5 years of partner experience. Trying to negotiate with one of these firm and will be helpful to know.
Where are all the accounting professionals going? Competitive pay and benefits aren’t enticing enough. People want work/life balance but how can firms provide that when the workforce supply is so low yet demand is at an all-time high. If technology is the answer are there firms that are successfully implementing solutions?
How is the current madness around Omicron affecting your firm? Are you implementing or changing policies to address it? Know this is a touchy subject, just taking a pulse.
Does anyone know what the payout plan looks like for non-equity partners at EY in consulting/advisory if the split goes ahead? Please DM if not comfortable posting here.
Have you noticed inflation and the general chaos we're moving through affecting your business and firm? Just asking for different perspectives here, not a political discussion.
I would start by reading the partnership agreement.
Already done. Requires several months notice but seems that is never enforced.
More facts are helpful.
Vested in any retirement?
Any cash capital?
Are you an equity partner or non-equity?
Do you plan to one day compete on your own or with another firm?
Specialty (audit, tax, advisory)?
How large a ledger do you supervise?
How many client do you supervise?
Are you the primary relationship partner or is it someone else?
How large is your firm?
Is there an obvious successor to take on your clients?
What is timing of compensation payout at your firm (ie base vs final draws)?
And that's just a start. Firms can have numerous hooks that make it tough to leave. Depends on the facts.
If you are a younger non equity partner with no vested retirement and no cash capital, then your risk is likely less and likely much easier to leave. But still be wary of compensation timing as you may always be leaving comp on the table.
These are helpful considerations, thank you. I understand the likelihood of leaving some comp on the table. I’m at a top 15 firm. Not concerned about client transition. Early 40s, no vested retirement, no capital loan, no equity.
Heading into a recession seems like a bad time to leave. But recognize there are always personal reasons for things.
I've never heard of firm trying to enforce the extra notice for a non-equity partner.
I would recommend that you stay at your current position until you find a new job. Or at least go through the motions of starting your own firm/ one man shop.
I have heard of the notice period being enforced for a non-equity partner, but I still agree with finding a new position first unless you are completely burnt out. People are used to waiting for someone at our level. If someone needs a partner level professional there the next day and just can’t wait it is a bad sign. You should be joining a firm/company as a part of a long term plan, not to plug a hole in a leaky boat.
Seems like if you have no retirement, capital, equity at risk there’s not a lot of reason to worry about the notice period or other restrictions. What’s the down side? Lawsuit seems far fetched. Typically those things have teeth cuz they could withhold your payout if you don’t follow partnership agreement.
Not that I don’t agree with comment about heading in to a recession and thinking through your next move.
Was a 1/4 equal partner in a local firm. One of the other partners called immediate meeting before Christmas and demanded changes, offering a number of options. One of those options was I leave the firm. We did not have a signed partnership agreement. I ended up leaving the firm and they are now demanding I pay 1 year’s collections for leaving. If clients follow me to new firm, am I responsible for paying commission for those clients? Does it matter if I join new firm as partner vs employee?
Seems like without a contract there is nothing to enforce. Demanding commissions may run afoul of state board rules.
