Just applied for a financial analyst position and they have asked me to prepare a top line P&L along with a flux analysis of CY vs PY and CY vs Budget, which is straightforward and I actually think is fun! However, this is my first interview outside of public accounting, is it common to have to put together work before an interview?

I exited audit for a senior financial analyst role last May, so peak Covid. I only had two 15 minute phone calls, never prepped anything and didn't even see anyone at the Company's face until i started.

Looking for general feedback on salary & IC numbers: Had a recruiter reach out about a manager gig at PWC in a sales effectiveness strat role in TMT. Said max comp is $155, which is low in my mind for max (parity to my big 4 salary). Are they being serious? Or is this their way of negotiating against me? Also mentioned IC at PWC is 25% of base comp, true? (IC seems high/inflated)

I will likely leave my new consulting job soon after 3 months. My current job is causing me to (almost) burn out already - I’m essentially doing the job of 2 people due to the project being understaffed. Management style is also severely micromanaged. I am in the process of interviewing & will likely get an offer. Thinking ahead, I am unsure what to say to my current company as the reason for leaving. I have a feeling things will turn hostile.

Any female 🐠 have trouble with overeating during their time of the month?
