Just started at big4 as experienced hire, team cannot train me because no one has experience with the client due to scheduling issues, and industry is exactly the opposite of what I was told I’d be gaining exposure to in my interview (the only reason I accepted this offer). Can I request a switch? I have never regret accepting an offer more to be honest.

Yeah not much you can do. Until somebody internal transfers you the idiosyncratic knowledge needed to use the software, you are going to be spinning your wheels. It's easier said than done, but try not to blame yourself or get discouraged. All you can do is document what you have tried to do with the limited (or complete lack of) orientation to the engagement that you have when/if they come to you asking why deadlines weren't met.

Where were you before?

I can't think of a single working environment where your experience doesn't depend on your team.

Hi! I'm currently in a dilemma. I recently got an offer from a company that wants me to give a final answer by Friday AM but I am simultaneously interviewing with KPMG and in the final round waiting for my call with the partner. KPMG is my top choice, but if I don't get hired by KPMG, I don't want to lose this offer. Have any of you accepted an offer and then got an offer from another company that you wanted to work at and left the job that you just started? What other advice do you guys have?

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job.

I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
