Depends on your service line, no?

Would imagine there is some variability but i truly have no clue, would like as much insight as possible! I also have offers into the advisory services which would move me from the tax service so if there is a difference i would appreciate any insight

Following!

How long before you make partner? If it’s still at least 5yrs out, the minutiae doesn’t matter for now, just knowing that it’s great comp and benefits should suffice. Salary can range from 250-500 depending on service line.

A question for Big 4 peeps - if you know the salary range in the group you wanna go for is 150k to 170k, how much should you say when the HR asks you how much you want? Is 180k too much to start with? (Didn’t want to start with 170k since they will only come back with lower I assume)

I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
