What is expected compensation for a 3rd year Director in New York in Accounting Advisory across Big 4?
Best and worst of the Big 4? Serious inquiry, not here to make fun of KPMG or hype one up... And please provide why TIA :)
Need advice for SPG hotel in NYC... Sheraton Times Square, vs Sheraton TriBeCa, vs Hotel Americano? Spouse is with me so I'm looking for a nicer property in that range.
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
Got a job offer at a mid tier firm in another city, somewhat lower cost of living, 15% bump with sign on bonus. I’m an A2. My only concern is that I’m taking a step back from big 4 and missing out on opportunities to learn. If things don’t go well is it easy to come back?
And there it is....the email from United offering me 1K status for the low cost of $1500. Am I crazy for considering it? I’m platinum now.
I currently work as a Product Owner/Manager and was curious to know if people have had any success in landing an international position or assignment? I live in the United States but am interested in exploring global opportunities if they're out there. Have any of you been successful in terms of getting an assignment with your company's international branch or been able to land a job with a non-USA based company? If yes, it'd be great if you could share how you went about it. Thank you.
What's the starting salary for audit/tax associates in big 4 in LA? Regular groups, not specialty
I joined B4 after college in 2019 and ever since working as QA, mainly manual/ functional testing. Can't see any progress work wise in same projects/teams. Before job, I wasn't a complete nerd but I did have some sense of programming so I wish to use that in my real life work in future. Can someone suggest how should I use my spare time so as to not be stuck in manual testing or testing itself? I'm somewhat lost when thinking of career progression after maybe next 5 years.
WLB at FAANG companies? I've heard it can be bad, especially at FB, but mostly from engineers that aren't used to >40 hrs a week. Any insights?
Partners, how do you perceive lateral hires from competing B4/ACN? Is there a perception of them not being good enough (out instead of up) or viewed as mercenaries with no investment in relationships?
What do u tell strangers that u do for a living when u don't want to explain what a big 4 auditor is
May be this is off the topic.. One of my friend who is a doctor & is an international med graduate. He passed his United States Medical Licensing Exams with above average scores.

Match process costs around USD10k; this year he is applying again after borrowing funds frm different sources bt he is under tremendous pressure to get match. I feel his pain as he has studied for 10+ yrs and is struggling to match nw. I m nt sure hw I can help
Don’t mean to sound stupid but would I be able to hold ETFs if I work at Deloitte (or any Big 4)? ETFs hold a lot of different companies/stocks so would there be a compliance/independence issue?
What is this about OT labor laws that took effect on 12/1/16 resulting in Big 4 layoffs nationwide? Does anyone know a little more about this?
How do deal with mental health disorders (bipolar, schizophrenia, autism, etc) in your day to day life? How do you handle work? Did you go to school and finish? Did you have a family?
Has anyone recently moved from EY India to US on L1B visa.. I am having queries regarding the visa process.
Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process. I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be? One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.
My brother was fired for “performance” last week after 1 YOE at a boutique. He suspects the real reason is CV19. He is quite down, and feels his career is over. 🐠-any words of advice to offer him?
See this being shared everywhere on LinkedIn and Twitter: If white women continue to be the face of diversity, then what is diversity?
Can somebody provide examples of strong ECs? Is involvement in a local small business accelerator a good example? How to find time to participate if I work 60 hours/week on average? Or does a hobby like a youtube channel count as well? I need a top tier MBA degree for better job opportunities, and I don’t care about community impact. Gonna fake it if I have to. Help.
Fishies who are experts at investing - can really use your advice! I have extra $25K cash saved but don’t know what else to invest in. Already maxed out on 401K/IRA, $ in savings for a rainy day, some $ in Wealthfront, and some $ in a brokerage account (tech stocks, ETFs). Is there anything else I can do to increase returns and diversify my portfolio? In my late 30s, hefty mortgage but no other loans, 1 kid on the way. Thank you in advance!!
EY FSO Advisory roundtable master thread to discuss rating distributions and potential raise ranges.
I want an MBA, but I have way too much debt from doing an out of state undergrad program and I know scholarships are great but unless it’s close to a full ride I don’t think it’d be enough for me. I’m the trailblazer in my family so I really just have myself to rely on. I’d like to hear￼ about everyone’s experiences with (or plans for) funding their MBA. Please also include any amount of debt you currently carry from undergrad + the cost and length of your MBA program.
Hey, I have applied to a job at EY for Risk assurance. My academics are pretty good and I'm pursuing ACCA with BCom, with a year of internship experience as well. I have tried to apply but I think a referral would really help. Please dm me for referrals. Would be happy to speak on linkedin as well and send my job ID as well.
Possibly a dumb question: do connecting flights get you 2 PQFs for United? I always try to fly direct but might consider taking some connections just to make the PQFs. Thanks!
Lyft has had what seems like the same ACD Writer role open for months now. Just yesterday, I saw that CCO post it with a note on LinkedIn. How have they not found anyone yet? Should this be a red flag? I've applied myself and haven't heard a peep, but I don't for a second think I stand a chance. So, I'm just curious if anyone has any light they might be able to shed as to the persistence of this open role. I know it's hard to find the right fit, but this is weird...
Has your workload increased, decreased or stayed the same over the last few weeks? My manager has l taken things off our plates so that we can focus on our families and health. Extremely grateful 🥰
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
Can I tell the client we won't be filing on time because we don't want to overshadow the importance of the BLM movement?
For the women in Chicago. Are there any cool spots you feel comfortable going on your own? Broke up during Covid and I realize I never go to bars or restaurants any more because I’m so used to not being on my own. I can drag friends with me but damnit I’m an adult. lol. I should be able to do this on my own!
Hey all, plan to publish an article based on personal predictions of COVID19 outcomes / impacts / implications to the world. Want to co-author this with someone for better visibility and insights. DM!
