Hello FishBowl community,
I was just told that my job could not accommodate me working remotely (since I broke my ankle) and because I am a new employee they were not able to do any type of leave.
I am a Talent Acquisition Partner with leadership and management experience, and my previous role was a Talent Acquisition Specialist. I have a bachelor degree in Business Management, and I’m looking for a remote role.
Any TA referrals or job opportunities would be greatly appreciated. 🙏🏼

Hi I’m gonna have a call with HR from Genentech South SF next week, so I would like to know how much I should ask for (as scientist position) , there’s huge range in Glassdoor. Anyone knows? Thanks in advance
Extremely toxic work environment & interviewing for other jobs. Would you 1) risk being fired (unsure when) or 2) quit/give notice and risk not having an offer fast enough? My finance is set and I’m primarily concerned about professional reputation. Somewhat unsure what to say to interviewers with whom I already started the process, though the real reason is role is nothing like advertised worsened by diff personalities… What would you do?

So I asked for a VP role and was told “it’s in the cards for you but only in a year.” A week later was asked to judge a big award show alongside nearly all Exec/VP/CCO types. How to leverage this?

Should be getting an offer to be a Plant Controller at our largest manufacturing facility in the US. Would be an internal transfer but I am already at the location as part of a rotational program. Four years of experience (PwC) and with current company a year and nothing but stellar reviews at the current company and am CPA. Job description requires at least 10 years experience but this doesn’t seem to be an issue. My question is, what should my salary expectations be for this role?
I'm tired of being told to prepare for easy to medium level leetcode problems and getting straight up DIFFICULT ones in interviews. I guess I just have to expect difficult from now on no matter what...these aren't even FAANG companies.

I have a question. I have enough credits for the CPA exam, but before I realized that I was aiming for a Master in Accounting and got accepted in my school 5 year program for that purpose. Is there any benefit of getting said master? Or should I focus on passing the CPA exam instead? I just finished my first tax internship and everybody said that the CPA was unavoidable but nobody talked about any benefit of getting a master whatsoever.
What do you guys think?
From a tactical perspective... Is there a big difference between 1+2 vs. 1+6 experience? Are recruiters et al often looking at hard cut-offs? I’m post-PhD MBB (not PL/EM level)

Hey YC bowl, need my weekly talk down from going to law school. Inevitably facing yet another week of mostly enjoying what I do while somewhat tolerating certain aspects of consulting. Not totally unfulfilled not totally unhappy. Decent WLB. Just cannot shake this law school bug. Haven’t been able to for years. Sort of encroaching a point where I’m not sure I’m even headed in my career in terms of developing hard transferable skills. For example, I feel like I don’t have an actual vocation. Lol

I was wondering if the review course “CPE Self Study Course” for the CFF was enough preparation to study and pass the CFF exam. The CFE review course was enough and like if you get a question wrong it explains it well so that when it comes up in a different way in the real exam you can still get it. But when I saw the outline for the CFF material and there seems to be a lot of topics so I was wondering if the review course was sufficient considering this exam is also multiple choice. Thanks!
1. Amongst all the big PA firms, who has the strongest forensic service line?

Has anyone worked in the disaster recovery Space and went directly into fraud? I’ve worked on disaster recovery projects as a Quality Assurance Analyst.

I’m in the same boat. Pretty much exclusively do disputes but want to get into investigations. Not to hijack, but as someone who’s done both can you explain what you like more about the investigations side? Also, how is the work life balance in investigations - I’ve heard it can be terrible and involve nonstop travel
Sure. I can only speak for my experience but I didn’t travel once and the latest I ever worked was maybe 7:30 PM, which was probably 3-5 times ever. This may have been specific to my group and company but honestly I wouldn’t mind increased hours at all if it was for doing something that piqued my interest
Have you tried discussing this desire with someone in your new place? They may just not be aware that you have the specific interest and may work with you to get you on those projects to keep you from leaving
That really stinks, OP. I hope you can find a role and team that is a better fit!
