Outsourced Tax Work: I know Deloitte has an Indian entity doing lots of legwork such as tax input work. Are other Big4 also doing the same thing ?

Everyone does - all b4, GT even. India, or Argentina. Even some US based “centers of excellence” that are basically domestic outsourcing.

What are your thoughts about outsourcing accounting ?

We live in a global economy. Outsourcing is a fact of life. From a business operating perspective, it’s simply cost leveraging to increase profits. That being said, I feel that most firms are missing the boat on how much they’re investing in the process (e.g. involvement of US professionals with applicable knowledge, training, etc.)... golden egg laying geese won’t lay eggs if they’re not fed.

Did 4 rounds of interviews. Last 2 with 2 partners at EY. Haven’t heard back even after 1 month. One partner even commented “you will be a good addition to the team”. Hiring manager gave EY email after her interview call with me.
Fast forward two weeks, no communication. Recruiting was surprised that I was still chasing for this position, month later. Got to know last week that hiring team was continuing to interview candidates. Should I drop the idea to get hired? EY hasn’t rejected me yet.
