CLEAR at IAD and DCA. Is it worth signing up? Lots of international and domestic travel coming up. Thoughts fish? Thanks!!
How much do the B4 care about independence issues at the staff and senior level? Do ppl really have to sell all their stock in their audit clients before starting?
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help
PSA - those who are so close to Marriott lifetime platinum elite should work on getting the status by end of year. If you do this you will be grandfathered into lifetime platinum premier
Seems big 4 has insight to rating and bonuses early. Any idea on ACNs?? I feel like nobody knows this shit till November for us
Big 4 🐠 here. Love consulting work but tired of the lifestyle. Anyone heard about F212, Slalom and Bridgespan?
Have got 400K Marriott Bonvoy points carried over since Feb 2019, when do they expire? If I can’t use them by end of year (if that is when they expire), can I transfer them or use them in any other way?
When did Marriott get so cheap? I’m staying at a Westin hotel in Houston and the free breakfast for ambassadors includes coffee, toast and water. They also charged me $10 a day for a microwave. I’ve never been charged for a microwave at any hotel… EVER!
Ladies. If you have a Chase Freedom credit card how long did it take you to get it? I have applied for a couple weeks now and am still waiting...
I was a manager at b4, and moved to a F100 company as an associate for higher pay and different work. Few months in, I’m already acting as a manager on projects, and honestly feel like I’m sandbagging. Do skip promotions or fast tracks ever occur in large companies, or would I need to change jobs again for that?
What is the process to move from Big 4 Delivery Center to Core Consulting? Is making this switch hard & how do do you get started with it?
AA concierge key vs UA Global Services. Which is better? Anyone have both? Does Delta have something similar (invitation only status above top tier)?
Is there a hierarchy within FAANG of which companies pay more/less? Why isn’t Microsoft part of FAANG instead of Netflix?
Both my wife and I work for FAANG companies. As the stock has recently gone through the roof I was wondering if we should try to protect the gains (covered call/put options). Understand we will be giving up upside but we might need to liquidate in about a year or so for a down payment. Any one ever done that? How would you think about the strategy here?
Had the weirdest call with someone from an offshore team… are offshore folks allowed to work for two Big 4 companies at the same time?
I’ve been with EY 8 months. Debating switching to another B4 for better location. Will they make me pay back the cost of Becker? Will the next big 4 be open to reimbursing me for that cost incurred?
Anyone here from EY Tysons Corner (Assurance Service Line) want to tell me about the firm culture, is it a great learning environment, client base? I got an offer for Senior 1 but want to be sure I’m making the right decision to go Big 4 or jump down to mid-tier. SN: I started at a smaller National firm but left years ago for industry so I’ll be coming in somewhat starting from square 1 but at a senior 1 level.
How bad are D layoffs in Canada? US firm seems nuts but not so much here from where I'm standing..
Guys - is it a wise decision to convert 401k into cash equivalent after a long positive run and try to time the market. Have a buddy who switches around his 401k every time the market rallys positive
Where does the Finance & Enterprise Performance practice at Deloitte sit in terms of S&O v Advisory? Recruiter reached out regarding an opening as a "finance" Consultant.
What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
The added pressure of navigating the application/testing process along with general concerns about COVID have been a lot to handle lately. How have you all been dealing with this and managing anxiety?
The air conditioner in my room at DU is noisy. How much of an increase in my bonus can I ask for?
I recently got selected at Accenture, I hold a better offer from big 4 now. hr is not willing to consider to match my CTC, I wish to decline the offer now. Can I quote this very reason and decline the offer?
After 6 months of interviewing, I finally got an offer with a start-up! Went from $160k total comp in a tier 1 city to $195k total comp in a tier 2 city. If you’re job searching - don’t give up, you can do this!! 👏🏻
I’ve been sober about 14 months, and now with things opening up more I’ve been going out to dinner, concerts etc with friends. I’ve been finding it hard to have fun, or not get restless while out. I think a large part of this is maybe I find the company around me boring? and they’re also all drinking. Maybe I just needed to write that out and vent to say, I’m bored! Maybe saying that out loud will help me get out of my comfort zone to find new activities that change my outlook.
Need advice from more experienced fishes. How much should I increase my FSA contribution if I plan to (try to) get pregnant next year?
Which big4 firm has the best benefits?
Trying to see if MBA is worth for me - I've just accepted an account director at an agency for $140K, 6 yoe, and trying to seek for MBA in order to transition into tech marketing. I heard that it's only worth it if the salary would double, but since I'm in HCOL I would hope that won't be the case. When you were trying to gauge if MBA is worth for you, what resources help you the most?
