What is the process of an RFP and winning a project? I am a senior con interested in learning the process of getting business to come in eventually. Is this always done between you and the client in a silo, or are there sometimes competitors in the room as well?

Miracles do happen. 3 rounds of IVF and on the verge of giving up. Took a month and half off to find our center. Doc calls and says we can’t start the 4th round bc we are pregnant! Crazy journey.

Would you rather exit to a high growth tech startup, or a small boutique tech consulting firm. Same pay. Almost identical benefits.

When it comes to minorities getting paid less than their white counterparts (esp. men), do you think it’s more about minorities having difficulties standing up for themselves to make a case for getting a raise/promotion, the bias of their managers/leadership, or both? Asian male here who doesn’t like to toot my own horn or play politics but feel increasingly like it’s required to keep climbing in this industry.

Anyone ever switch from B4 Advisory to a midsize or local CPA firm to work in external audit? What was your experience? Looking for a better work-life balance, but concerned about taking a pay cut.

I feel like every time someone posts something about taking a long stint of PTO, everyone comes down and says they're gonna get fired. Take PTO, get fired. Don't, and get walked over. Yay.

Hadn’t noticed this sub before, and most of the threads are old so thought I’d ask a follow up - how has everyone been handling parenting with public accounting? I’ve got a toddler and my wife is an accountant (industry), and we only have a few immediate family in the country- but they have health concerns. Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.
