Why does PwC Law take almost 2 years as compared to other companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon etc. take only 1-1.5 years for the whole I140 approval process. Does all Big 4 make you wait for long to get your I140?
Hey everyone. Hope you are having a good day. I have a little question. I am the type of auditor that love fieldwork. I heard from someone that big 4 now tend to switch to work from home mote. Is that true? Do you think it's better to try to get into mid size CPA firms or big 4 small and medium client segment/ industry in order to have the greatest chance to be on audits that require fieldwork? Hope to hear your opinion and advices.
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Anyone quit B4 before lining up another job? I’ve been interviewing for a couple of roles and haven’t gotten any green lights yet but I honestly dread the thought of going back to work tomorrow.
Thinking of moving from mid tier (BDO/GT/RSM) to big 4. Is it worthwhile? Anyone else done this and have experience to share?

Hello fishers, Do all the big 4 demand their employees to have a coding knowledge? If yes, what language do they look for? If no, what are the other skills they look at?
Tax professionals who have left B4/PA, how has your work life balance been in private/industry? PA offers decent flexibility, although I don’t appreciate having to be available more often than not.
Not getting opps I was promised so not getting much experience (reg compliance). It's been 3yrs. Is basic knowledge, some compliance exp, & Big 4 on my resume enough to join Fed Reserve (Examiner)?
I feel a split in Big 4 about working hours. If one gets in at 8 and leaves at 5, or at 830 & leaves at 530 etc, why do some people who come in at 9/930 get upset people don’t stay until they leave?
What is the difference between an Associate Consultant role (in MBB) vs. a Consulting/Business Analyst role (in McK/Big 4/ACN)? Would the former be a step up from the latter, or they are lateral?

Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
@Adweek I had it again. In their obituary of Stewart altar, a great man who served the industry and his agency for his entire adult life, they refer to him as “old school editor retires’ ￼. Ageism at its worst. I strongly urge an industrywide boycott about a week. No sneak peaks, no interviews, shut them off.￼

Got offered a SAP analyst role at Deloitte. Currently I am working at Spirit In the accounting department. I work less than 40 hours in week and make 57K. Work life balance is ELITE at spirit. The reason I applied to Deloitte was because SAP intrigues me since I’ve used at my current company and technology as a whole intrigues me and where we are headed with it in the future. How many hours will I be working over at Deloitte? Should I leave my current company for Deloitte if they offer 70k?
Do associates @ other strategy shops spend a lot of time sourcing/conducting interviews?
MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4. That said seeing some of my Big 4 friends make it to SMs in 7 years so MBB needs to amp up the meritocracy based promotions. Curious what would be the comp for a 1st year consulting partner in Big 4?
When using an offer to negotiate a higher salary, what number is used? Is it just base or different components of total comp?
Any recommendations on a carry on bag with a trolley sleeve for me to slip on over my roller carry on? A nice larger size one that can fit both client and acn laptop?
I have an interview tomorrow but am finally getting opportunities at current gig so while I still feel underpaid, I’m not eager to leave anymore. I’m afraid I’ll show that in the interview. Any tips?
Received an offer from RSM as a supervisor. Coming from B4 not quite sure what the title entails (i.e., the difference between that and a manager). Currently a SA. Can someone from RSM explain? TIA!
Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
Have a friend telling me to get in on the baby dinos NFT drop at 2pm. I’ve never invested in an NFT but I do know what NFTs are. What should I be considering before I make my decision?

What is the typical duration from resume submission to first interview for FAANG? It’s only been a week but I’m anxious to hear back 😅
The teacher shortage is a national crisis (one that was foretold decades ago). In other industries, when there is an employee shortage for a specific field, the company would increase the salary and benefits for that position because of the law of supply and demand. Why doesn't this work for education? Shouldn't teachers be paid more because we are in short supply? Should certain subjects be paid more?
