How important is it to get your CPA in the long run/ outside of big 4? Would CFE be beneficial? I’m a forensics staff.
Currently on STD leave for mental health. Been going through sessions with a psychiatrist and a counselor. On lexapro and hydroxyzine for anxiety and depression. Still can’t get over the fear of going back to working like a dog with no sort of peace. Through the sessions we have established the fact that consulting or B4 is very toxic for my sanity and quitting the job is what I need. What are the repercussions of putting 2 weeks notice, once I am back to work FT? Can STD leave be cancelled?
On the bench for 9 weeks, starting on a new project next week and going on a 2 week vacation right after I join. Am I in danger of getting fired here? Had arranged the holiday 2 months ago and spend
Next week is the 1st week on my project (it's an 8 hr flight). I have a big family event on Wednesday night that I want to take 1 day PTO for. Would it be unreasonable to ask to work remote 1st wk?
I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
2 short weeks coming up, then PTO for 2 weeks!
How often do companies you interview with reach out to your current firm/team/managers about your performance? (Wondering if I need to take this into account as I start recruiting for tech jobs)
Are beards appropriate in big law in the US while interviewing and/or working as an associate? Could it just depend on the person interviewing you? From what I’ve seen in Europe, they’re tolerated even in old school environments. Thank you!
Is it viewed as “not good” to go back to my alma mater for MBA? It’s a top 40 business school and got me into B4 consulting easily. School has strong recruiting presence in the region I want and I have a full ride for their FT program. Appreciate any thoughts!
For those that joined consulting post-MBA, do you wish you had started earlier or do you feel it was the right time? 2 years in and wondering if I should commit to another 3 years for B-school...
I’m launching a Slack group for in-house counsel to network, share resources, and job opportunities. If you’d like an invite send me a DM!
What am I supposed to do on a mental health day? I’d like to make this time productive, but I’m still answering emails and afraid to turn my phone off.
Do I need to have MS or MBA to get into other big 4 ,McKinsey& Company or BCG? I am a manager at PwC with 10+ experience in total..and want to explore other opportunities in technology consulting

Interviewing for Saatchi and Saatchi NY - any thoughts on the work life balance there? Trying to avoid 80hr weeks
On my current project we are working directly for the ceo and coo. I tend to think that whenever you present something to someone at this level, it needs to look good. Even if it’s an early draft things need to be professional. I don’t want to lose their attention or our credibility by showing bad stuff. My teammates on the other hand think it’s ok to show rough work because we are “co-creating” and they are normal people too.... who do you side with
