In the Consulting practice ?

I've gone from pwc to EY in a month.

Was it after being laid off at Pwc? What reasoning did you give ey for being laid off?

I echo EY OP's sentiments

They didn't need me anymore and when I interviewed they asked me what was wrong with pwc that you wanna leave 😂 they didn't know I was laid off lol

Oh great! But they were ok with you not having a job at hand? Did you apply for EY online and they got back to you early? Are you in tax or audit?

Yeah they didn't even mention it. I applied online and I had someone refer me. It's funny because I think the online application got me the interview. The person who referred me didn't get a bonus 😔. I'm in indirect tax

Thanks ! One of best friends at EY got laid off and is having a hard time dealing with it so hoping he can get deloitte since similar positions are open at deloitte at the moment.

Good luck! Im updating my resume just incase. Lots of downtime leading to low utilization.. busy season coming but won't be surprised if they give me the boot. I have about 21 months of Big 4 experience so I'm not too worried

You're a staff 2? So you left PwC as a staff 2 and got EY as a staff 2?

Left pwc as a seasonal associate - tech staff 1 came in as a staff 1 .. I should've been a staff 2 but it's complicated. Im a staff 2 now yes
