Honestly, what do people who work at the big 4 think of RSM?

As an SC going for Manager who wanted to jump ship, would you consider another Big4? If so, which one has comparable benefits and better work-life balance (I know, I know that’s probably unrealistic)?

4 month old refuses bottles completely at daycare. I'd rather not reverse cycle, since sleep is already so precious. Has anyone had success arranging full time WFH while figuring feeding out?

Wife goes back to work next month, and we have to choose between having a nanny and sending our 1.2 year kid to day care. Without COVID, we would’ve always gone with day care. Want to get peoples thoughts on which ones safer. I have a feeling day care teachers may get vaccinated earlier than nannies. We are in Jersey City if that helps. Thank you!


Only absurd responses. The big 4 assemble in a parking lot. It’s a fight to the death. Who places where and why?
