Currently have 5 YOE in IT advisory at big 4, looking to exit to tech. Any recommendations for potential roles to take given experience is not heavily in tech? Have any other former big 4 alumni found the switch to be difficult?
Need some advice. I’m 21, my partner is 29. We have a son together. As I get older, I realize I don’t know if I’m ready to settle down completely. I know that sounds crazy, because I am a mom, but I want to travel around and my partner thinks it’s not doable with a family. I also want to eventually move out of state to explore other opportunities, but he’s not interested. He thinks we are just at two different points in our life. Is this a reason to part ways?

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
Fishes, need an advice. SO and I have pre-tax salary of $180k. Cleared out all debt recently (education, marriage etc.).15% goes to regular 401k. Confused whether/not to buy dream home of $460k (with closing cost). Numbers at 3% rate and 10k down payment looks doable. Needs suggestion if we need to consider any other points. Buyer mkt in my area (NC) is crazy. Same home would have been 15k cheaper 2 months ago. Rising prices adds more concern to us. we are 1st time home buyers and both on H1Bs
Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit. The bench when you really want to be out on a project but cant for som reason. What is you take? Are they just two words for the same thing
Looking to boomerang back to PwC. The offer for a salaried position was pretty solid, but that one-time sign on bonus will go away the next year (obviously). They mentioned ‘Talent-Exchange’ and getting paid hourly with no benefits. If I did that, I would make about 205k (gross, with no benefits). That’s assuming I would average 55 hours a week throughout the year (pretty similar to what I work right now). Anyone have experience doing this? I’m worried averaging 55 is not possible.
Hired as an undergrad. Moving up quickly (should be manager this year). What benefits would I get out of doing an MBA?

Wife is looking to get back into consulting. Went to industry 3 years ago. Recommendations for healthcare groups with local/no travel model? Thanks! Chicago
We are all having such a tough day over here. Kids are super emotional, hubby and I didn’t sleep well last night, and this whole Covid thing is sucking the life out of all of us. Hugs to all of you out there feeling the same way.
I joined consulting from industry with a salary increase of 60% and in hope to work on interesting and challenging projects. It has been only 8 months. My old job was slow, bureaucratic and boring but I barely worked 7 hours a day. While I am happy that I am learning a lot, I am also pushing between 12 to 16 hours a day and working for a toxic client. I am worried I will burn out soon. How do you manage to stay in consulting for so long ?
Anyone know of any resources where you can get dual credits for CPA/CFP continuing education?
