What role have you been in for your implementations (dev, BA, etc)?

I’m thinking of staying another year or so before jumping. I feel severely underpaid at Deloitte so trying to milk as much certification as possible

Solution Architect is one of your exit options

What would the role entail?

Hahaha NOT solution architect. You need 3 more certs and 3 more years of hands on SF.

What salary are you targeting?

If goal is 120, you'll need 2 certs and maybe something specialized (commerce cloud perhaps)

solution engineer - the three recommended certs are admin, advanced admin, and platform app builder

Would this lead to more technical role or more functional role?

Best route to move to in house PE tax m&a/structuring role? After working with more PE clients, a lot of their internal tax teams seem clueless on some of the main tax issues, step-up deductions, nexus studies, just overall somewhat basic concepts you would think these 'tazx directors' understand. So my ask is, are these positions typically moreso for tax structuring than tax modeling?

Hi my sharks 🦈🙂👋🏻
I received a Welcome Kit from KPMG India as my joining date is just a month away.

However, I won't be joining KPMG as I have far better offers. Hence this welcome kit has put me in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

So when I would be declining the joining via a mail /phone call, should I tell the HR that I want to return this welcome kit as I won't be joining?

Will they take it back? I feel it is morally and ethically wrong to keep this kit knowing I won't join.
