How efficient is the referral system at Amazon? Been referred for two roles. Status is "Under consideration" for two weeks now. Also, one of the roles has been taken down from their job postings while the other is still up. Does this mean that they have found the candidate or that they're done accepting applications and will now evaluate. The status for both is "Under consideration". Thanks!
Had my virtual on-site for an S&O L3 role 3.5 weeks ago (NYC, 5 YOE). I haven’t heard back on a decision yet, and was wondering how long it typically takes? I also know that I was one of the very first candidates to interview for this specific role, and there are atleast 2 more people scheduled for onsites. Does the recruiter typically wait for all candidates to finish their onsites before communicating a decision? Or if I haven’t heard back yet, it’s probably a reject?
Raise the bar!

Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
WHERE IS MY RAISE
People who got promoted last year - how do you feel about it? I feel guilty given that most people didn’t even get a raise (in the UK). I find it hard to reconcile with the COVID gloom

Is it common for firms to do a mid year ‘market adjustment’ that basically makes it where they’re paying you the same as what industry pays? I’m a first year manager going into my second year and just got a 10% bump that essentially makes the 20% raise on departure to industry impossible. 🤷🏻♂️
Want to reach out to old friends (school mates / interned together) who are at MBB. Best way to reach out to not be “that guy asking for a referral”. Even though that’s exactly what I’m doing.
The competition to get promoted within management is getting heated at my firm and I have been hearing through the grapevine that someone else is trying to beat me to a promotion. What can I do?

Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

MBB/LEK or IB? An important factor is that I want to end up in NYC - born and raised wi to a SO and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. I have read the MBB/LEK competition in NYC is fierce… how true is this?
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier. Trying to get out of audit, but not sure it's worth sticking in B4 since not feeling EY at the moment.

Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
