If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Is Deloitte still having layoffs?
Curious - what does it take to get fired in big 4 consulting? Anyone have stories they are willing to share?
If you join in the middle of the year, does your utilization get adjusted? If so, when does it show up on Staffit? I've been here since may and have been utilized since day 3, yet TOD shows me at 58%
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Welp...I got a 4, they should've just fired me because I am keeping it 💯, I am doing the bare min from now until I leave.. #screwuPwC
KPMG announced no 2020 layoffs, but at this point, has any other firm provided this or a similar plan forward to protect employees during these times?
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
My specialty group is so dead my utilization is 18.7%. I've reached out to dozens of people and no one has work for me. Been here 8 months. I want to shoot myself for not taking the PwC offer.
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Which of these two can get a job quicker? A. The one who resigned and currently unemployed B. The one who got fired
At PwC(S&) are evaluations (career roundtables) driven primarily by utilization? How much do reinvest and snapshots play?
Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.
GT NY Folks- Tax A1 here, any insight on round tables for first year’s? People have said they generally never fire A1’s, is that true? Utilization is low so a little concerned.
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
For those with kids, how would you feel if someone without kids told you “I chose not to have kids, because of where I want to spend my time. And, my priorities outside of work should carry as much weight as yours (meaning kids)”?
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?
General question: can you change the culture of a 4,000 personal organization in 3 months? I think you can set up a framework but real cultural change takes time. And Nov/Dec doesn’t seem like the ideal time to do it. I ask because trying to find a way to present this to my boss with proof points.
I always forget how traveling to LAX is half flying, half just getting across the fucking tarmac
Final FP&A interview tomorrow with the director. Have already had one interview with the hiring manager, and two interviews with the team. What should I expect for tomorrow? Recruiter who scheduled the interview said keep doing what you’re doing and be yourself. Does that mean the team didn’t think I was myself during their interviews? Or am I reading into this too much?
Why does everyone preach DEI but fail to recognize that people also grow up in different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes? Increasing diversity in these elite firms also means that you will be at team dinners with people who didn’t grow up with well off parents and experiences living in the finer things in life or enjoying the same things outside of work - but not all teams are cognizant of that in their social conversations and can unintentionally make those ppl feel different. End rant.
What would you do, if anything? A coworker with confirmed COVID19 results (asymptomatic, only lost sense of smell) refuses to wear a mask and continues to go out, even sends her toddler to daycare.
401k or Roth ira which is better
Where are all my ESG and CSR folks? Apparently the economic slowdown from covid 19 has caused emissions to slow down incredibly.
Can Big 4 people get their mail sent to their office since they are there most of the time? 😂
Apologies if this was asked recently (I'm new) but does anyone have the scoop on Contently? I'm in the 1st round of applying and the strategy exercise they sent is more data-heavy than I expected...
Betteryou just updated with the new comp
Anyone have a good office chair recommendation? Really not trying to spend more than $150 but willing to go to $200 if there is a really good recommendation. Thanks!
Desi fam, did any of you take 24 karat gold coins to India from US? Like 1/2 oz or 1/4 oz. Did you have to pay taxes at immigration in India ? How much if yes ?
Anyone else nervous about the future and not being able to retire at a reasonable age. How do you determine how much you need for retirement? Late 30s family inc. is $200k planning on kids as well
Moved to a new place and thinking about getting a corner standing desk. The autonomous one is $1k, so wondering if anyone has found a good, cheaper standing desk for the corner of a room! TYIA
