How would you rate your current position in terms of job security? I constantly feel like I'll be made redundant.

Recruiter said in re: to Supply Chain Manager role that the company could do lower six figures. Have to imagine that she really means low 100s, right? 250k is still lower six figures.

Need advice on the transition to FDD one day. Will be promoted to senior in 2 weeks (in risk advisory and have CPA). I already feel a huge disadvantage trying to go Risk > FDD (as opposed to typical Audit > FDD). Should I stick it out in risk until deals start hiring again? I think there's some value in being a Big 4 CPA compared to an industry senior analyst. But the work in risk doesn't help me develop towards FDD at all... transfer got delayed 3 times until covid, so I'm down to switch firms

What is your target salary to feel that you’ve made it?

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?

I have an offer from EY. They rejected my counter offer for a higher salary but accepted my counteroffer for a higher sign on bonus. They gave me a few more days to think about the new offer. I want to know how likely would they be willing to renegotiate if I tell them I still want something closer to my original counter offer.
