Are there any Israeli fishes here that can share their perspective on how unionizing has affected the Big 4 in Israel? Currently this may be the only country where big 4 accountants have union membership & collective bargaining agreements, so I'm curious what the motivations were and whether you feel it's been worth it https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-ey-first-israeli-accounting-firm-to-sign-collective-labor-agreement-1001195205
Considering leaving audit after 1.5 year in audit with B4 to do an FP&A role with a publicly traded company, not F500. Is FP&A a good jump? Is it too early? It will be a 20% pay bump, better hours, seems like I will learn more and be better prepared for future finance roles. Already have my CPA. What do you think?
Anyone know how much PwC audit director makes? Or other big 4 equivalent of that? Thanks.

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)

For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Out of curiosity why is KPMG consistently made fun of and considered the worst of the big 4? I've been here a year and love working here, the people and work make me happy to come in everyday
