How in-depth are background checks with the big 4? Had a drunken run in with Johnny Law a little while back. Arrested but never charged, didn't see a judge, was released soon after.

They probably wouldn't care. The big 4 is full of alcoholics. Tax would probably care tho

Charges only.... You can get arrested for just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and no company can legally hold that against you

^ dude everyone already answered you. Nobody gives a damn. I have several alcohol related charges. As long as they are non-violent, nobody cares.

Do your companies ask about arrests or only convictions?

Mine was very in depth. I requested a copy.

Would it show an arrest? Would they care if one was never charged?

This is why you keep a good attorney at all times

Not a background that you would want in an audit firm...

Not going to be doing audit work. Consulting. I was just wondering if they would ask about arrests when I fill the questions out. If they only ask about convictions, then I'm good.

What about speeding tickets you don't contest and pay? Do they matter in b/g checks?

What about arrests with no charge or anything

Same old discussion but would like a fresh perspective as I am having a career crisis. I started my career at a B4 tax financial services doing mostly federal compliance. At a manager level for various reasons, I switched over to another B4 same group. It's been a couple months and I am having hard time fitting in mostly due to my lack of desire to learn new system, client and etc. I suspect because I am severely burnt out even though I took some break before staring at this firm.

I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️

Senior associate in the big 4 currently working on huge finance transformation project. This has given me a ton of stakeholder management experience and really put me in the deep end in terms of workload and client engagement. My question is, what's the best way to pivot for a relaxed high paying industry role? What type of roles do you more experienced consultants pivot to when you feel burnt out with your work and want to take on a completely different role in industry without a salary cut?
