In which situation, big public accounting firm would fire someone? In my firm, someone was fired because a partner thought she was too slow. Another one was fired because she was dating with his staff as his supervisor. I recently had some disagreement/ arguments with one manager. Should I be concerned and start looking for new job ?

Yes if they report to HR depending on how serious it was there could be an investigation. Was the argument verbal or written?

A manager told me unilaterally to direct review an associates work, then proceeded to lecture me about his prioritizing team member development over quality and timeliness of work (this tax the week before a deadline). He was a week behind and had clearly ghost signed off on the associate’s train wreck and not the first time he’s done that. This combined with a harassment claim against him and he’s gone.

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..

If you are asked to leave your firm (e.g., being told as a third year that it’s not working out and you should begin to look elsewhere, given a bit of a runway), does that count as being fired/terminated for the sake of future job applications?

If you’re asked why you left that job, is it okay to not say you were fired but just five other reasons why you wanted a change?

What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm currently with TCS. I have given technical interview with Infosys on 9th October and the very next day I got a mail to send documents. Since then I didn't receive any reply from them. How long does the process really take for one to get a call for HR discussion. It's been almost 10 days now. Similar situation happened with Accenture recently, they put me on hold for long and suddenly turned down the offer after HR discussion for which I'm really concerned now.
