Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Hi all, Has anyone here put in for mental health leave? I am seriously thinking of talking about it with my therapist on Thursday. I'm having heartburn, insomnia, multiple migraines a week (almost threw up today during my planning period 🤢). I've gained weight, I'm miserable all the time, I'm 39 and healthy but I honestly thought I was having a heart attack a week ago. I'm so anxious I'm short of breath most of the time. Would like to know your experiences...
Can someone tell me what their thoughts on Applied Value Group is? Got a 2nd round interview coming up and I got a weird vibe from the guy that interviewed me round 1. Like if he was going through the motions. Anyone working there that can tell me about the culture? I see a lot of their people are from Emory, which is not a top ranked MBA program and Idc about the once a year trip if the rest of the year is going to suck for me.

Had an interview and after I followed up, the recruiter asked me to call them the next morning. Is this normal for HR to ask you to call instead of them calling? I’m trying to figure out if this is a rejection or next steps call.
Hey everyone, new to the whole consulting world. I am currently 8 months into my time here at Accenture. I did not major in anything related to consulting, and I’m wondering if I should look into a MBA. Is it worth getting? What are potential benefits of getting it sooner rather than later? Should I wait until I get more experience under my belt? What opportunities are there for me to get it paid for? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
