I received a verbal offer for an experienced staff position at EY FAAS. Tbh I like accounting and PwC, but just hate audit. Can I leverage my offer to switch to CMAAS? How would I do this?

Talk to the partner in charge of your group and let them know that want to stay with PWC but not audit. I would assume they would rather keep you than let you go to another firm and would try to help with a transfer.

Is that really the best person to contact? He's the head of a very large practice and I've spoken to him like once

Be careful in doing this. They will dangle CMAAS to keep you but then drag their feet in the actual transition. I would personally leave, unless you're ok with taking longer to actually be in CMAAS.

If they drag their feet on it, just leave. Do what makes you happy

Second this

I just went thru this. Audit will try to keep you another busy season, I don’t think it’s even worth the hassle because they’ll just screw you.

What office for FAAS?

I say FAAS

You do need to go straight to the lead of your group in your office and say, I received an offer to leave, I would prefer to stay but transition to xx group. Remember, you likely have a time to accept your offer, so make sure they know all the stuff (admin, etc. to get you to switch) has to be done before you need to accept/reject your offer. Don’t let them tell you “give us a couple weeks” or “let’s take time to transfer your projects”. If you quit, you’re out the door in 2 weeks likely, so that is more than sufficient for them to transition you to the new group.

A friend gave me a referral to a big tech company and a recruiter contacted shortly with a prep doc containing info on what to prep on, the interview format, what type of questions, etc. Before reviewing the prep doc, I confirmed my interest and booked a call but now I feel I am not ready yet although I really want the job. I want to apply after 6 months. What can I do to skip the interview without jeopardizing my future chances?? Please help!

How do you explain to you SO the role of billable hours? I feel like a broken record talking about how BIg law and in general the legal profession is very different, but my SO doesn’t seem to get the stress. Loves my paycheck for sure, but doesn’t get that to move up in our profession that you have to put the “time” in and that some of that isn’t just the 1900 requirement. It’s getting very frustrating.
