How to follow up with an in house position that emailed and said they are still very interested in my candidacy? I responded with interest as well after going through a few interview rounds but haven’t heard back and it’s been like 2.5 weeks. This was right before the New Year. Interviewing elsewhere but don’t have an offer yet, which I would leverage to put pressure on them to give me an answer. GC said he would reach out early January.

I would reach out politely, but unless you have a firm offer from somewhere else, I would not recommend telling the prospective employer you are interviewing elsewhere if you actually want the job. That is assumed and isn’t strong leverage to force their hand. It may actually make it easier to cut you.

Agree with CC1. All these companies want you more if they think maybe you’ll go to a competitor

Email and ask

Email them; ask. Don’t tell them about the other offer for now - not least because there isn’t one (and they’re not going to make an offer just because someone else has) - but fair enough to ask

Ask, but go gentle. They are either still getting feedback and approvals to make the offer or they already made an offer. I think you can ask if there are candidates under consideration and that while this is your first choice and the opportunity you most interested in, but other companies have been showing interest as well and other offers may be imminent

January is a tough time to receive a quick response. Firms and companies are reviewing quarterly taxes, income, overhead, need for additional employees for the year, necessary collections, negotiating medical coverage, etc.

I've been looking for salaries for various position with Big 4 assurance, but information is all over the place. So after some research here, reddit, goingconcern, glassdoor, etc. I've put this info together: !! The salary grid below is for Big 4 Audit, HCOL (NYC,SF), gross amounts without bonus !! Of course they can be higher or lower by a few k's on each position depending on impact tier, but I tried to look for average amounts. If you have information please post it so we can update.
