I received a decent paying offer but there's a probation period of 6months that comes with this. Should I consider this?

This is common with most of the MNCs




It should be fine.


Very common, I'm switching jobs with the same terms

That's comforting. Thank you

As long as you are confident that you can perform well, I wouldn't worry about it.

I’m a mid-level working in a niche area in NYC. I like the work I do, put in long hours, high quality work, take time to mentor juniors, etc. I see myself at a law firm long term but now wondering if this is the right firm to make partner. Among others, one big concern I have is the non-existent emphasis on diversity and inclusion initiatives (they aren’t even pretending to care...), no committees, no statements in support of POC, etc. How do I find firms really committed to these issues?

I have questions for EY Tax technology and transformation team. I am getting promoted this year as a tax senior and thinking of switching firms.

Will they still pick me up as a senior or would i have to go down as a staff level? Also curious about what they do & their compensation.


Hi Fishes, I have been offered consultant role by EY. HR in verbal communication told me about the salary structure as Fixed + Variable % + Joining Bonus . The offer letter mentions the Fixed and Joining Bonus but doesn't say anything about the Variable Portion. Is this okay or do I need to talk to HR about this? TIA

Have an offer on the table at a startup that’s $35K more than current big 4 salary for a Senior Manager role.

Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?
