BDO / RSM maybe. Big4 unlikely.

like

Not to the B4. Although at this moment they are having existential crisis so might agree to take you in. But know that you will likely have a fairly challenging time - at least your first year.

What region are you in? What kind of tax work do you do ?

Real Estate/Asset Management

Big 4, you would come in as a manager. I don’t think they would interview you for SM. Just interviewing around and Deloitte wants me to come in a senior even though I’m a newly promoted manager lol

Tbh you're probably better off coming in as a manager and pushing for promotion a year in. Gives you a chance to learn clients, office politics, expectations, etc. in a lower pressure situation than if you were to come in as a SM.

It’s possible but depends on your experience, clintile and hours.

Deloitte question. I have always gotten a raise each year, the only question I ask is how much of a raise do I get. But I’m hearing from former Deloitte folks, it is naive to expect annual raises each year however small/big they are? And how does this play in Deloitte consulting vs advisory? Do one tend to withhold annual raises in base salary over the other, or is this just a deloitte culture thing? Looking at exit opportunities all over. So lmk! I’d Rather get a small raise than none at all.

Am I horrible for wanting to leave even though they asked me that I was planning to stick around for more than a few months. Any advice appreciated!

Started at a new firm in September. The firm sent me my pro rated hours requirement for the year. It includes no ramp up period (like, for example, it doesn’t factor in that my first week was full of mandatory systems trainings, etc). I was told there’s no expectation I must hit the goal, but it feels like maybe there’s an unspoken expectation that I do. Any thoughts? I’ll need to bill just over 8 hours a day from now to December 31 to make it. Doable but the bonus is also pro rated.
