Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group.

Hey everyone has anyone switched to a diff big4? I am having issues on my team where they don’t think Im at level, but my team has not been good at feedback and or coaching I am an A2. I had been thinking of moving to another big 4 for awhile but being blindsided by where they think I am at, which I don’t necessarily agree with fully , is pushing me away more. Has anyone had a successful switch?

Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….

It seems like a generalist can also come straight out of undergrad so…I’m not excited to go through interviews with 0 sense of the salary potential… apparently it can take multiple interviews before they give you any sense
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.

Can I jump firms without interviewing in this market? S3 with 3 years FDD experience... not really interested in more than 1 conversation to get to to know the team.

Does anyone know if Deloitte is still filling green card applications for audit? I looked up on Dnet and seems like it’s paused for advisory, but just wanted to confirm. Also, how can I start this conversation with a partner to obtain sponsorship approval? I don’t think any of the partners I worked with is familiar with the process, so I’m lost with how to initiate this convo. Lastly, I know this varies case by case, but how long does it typically take from initiating the app to rec the card? TY
