Intern here. Attempted a CPA part, got discouraged since I failed it & it's costly out of pocket. Scored a 70 though but I'm wondering if I should give 1 or 2 parts another shot before the changes?

Why are you taking exams before you're done with school and without firm support? Seems like a waste of your time and money, especially considering they'll pay for a review course and exams.

like

Right, so wait until the program is over and taught you everything it has to offer, and use the firm to pay for a review course. Don't spin your wheels and waste money

like

They'll reimburse after you get the offer so it's pretty smart to take them but they will only reimburse for initial fees so passing is crucial

like

Not sure what firm your interning for. But many typically pay for the sections once. You may be able to retake it on the firm's dime.

Depends on firm, CH reimburses take sections about 7 times

Deloitte also only reimburses for initial fees and you have to pass all four first

I haven't gotten to the offer stage as yet, so I'm kind of stuck in the middle until I finish busy season :(.

In Master's Program now ^

Reimburses any section*

Oh well that's something to consider^ pwc initial fees only

Yeah, Crowe is fees up to 3,500, so after Becker there's about 1500 leftover for exams and retakes

Yeah they'll reimburse all of Becker but isn't it like 1k to take all 4 once?

It was about 900 for all four, my retake cost 250ish after that

Wow that sucks

Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.

I currently work at a firm that pays above market. 12 YOE, people transformation ( culture, not ERP/tech implementation) background. Current total comp is about $140-150k, plus $20k unvested equity. Is this a reasonable salary expectation for my next role: $165-$180 total comp annually, something like: $150k base, 25% bonus, + $30k equity, $25k cash sign on to replace what I’m walking away from in outstanding equity and expected bonus payout for 2021.
