I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?

Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates. Usually the client contact is a hiring manager for the position. How do I show interest without completely shooting myself in the foot? While I ultimately do want to exit the firm, I also don’t want to be openly broadcasting my intent to leave by telling the firm attorney(s) that I’m interested. Thoughts?
What are the exit opportunities for big 4 M&A tax? Any chances to go to investment bank M&A or retiring as a big four partner is the best scenario?
Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.

I'm considering switching from Public Accounting (tax) to industry as a Financial Analyst - is this feasible? A lot of job postings for Financial Analyst positions ask for knowledge of ERP system, SQL and even coding which I know nothing about. Is it that something that can be learn on the job or should I invest in taking some courses before applying for jobs? How different are these two career paths?

A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated

This probably looked like a good idea when one of Bernie's staffers plugged it into a spreadsheet as if it was an 8th grade math problem with one variable. Trouble is it's not an 8th grade math problem. Does anyone seriously think Elon Musk would stay in the country and happily hand over 40% of his total wealth to fund tax collection shortfalls caused by lockdowns that he was a vocal opponent of? Apparently Bernie and AOC think so. https://www.forbes.com/sites/sarahhansen/2020/08/11/bernie-sanders-renews-call-for-a-billionaire-tax-this-time-to-fund-medicare-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic/
