Peeps who had experiences with jumping among big 4 - how long does it normally take to hear back from the company after taking the initial interview with HR? Talked with two companies last Friday and got very positive feedback from the HR, but wondering if it’s bad sign of not hearing back after a week, considering both companies seem to be hiring desperately.

Nah hang tight - these things take time bc now it’s on the hiring managers schedules which are unpredictable. I’ve waited for up to 3-4 weeks so don’t worry about it.

One week is a bit long tbh. Maybe follow up?

I followed up after a week. Even with them trying hard to recruit people, the practitioners who'll be interviewing are also crazy busy now so I imagine scheduling is not easy

Hi!! Any tips/stories on actively interviewing while ✨pregnant pregnant✨. (27 weeks) All potential positions are fully remote, and they are all Mkting Manager/Senior Mkting Manager roles.

Two of the companies seem very mom-inclusive so far, so part of me wants to be upfront/honest to build a positive rapport as well as potentially negotiate maternity leave that I would otherwise not qualify for this far along!

Hi everyone, I want to do a sense check on my paycheck and taxes. I am a staff 2 in tech consulting at EY in Chicago with 1.5 YOE. Current base salary is $91.2k and with RACs etc I am right around $95k. I contribute $250/month to my 401k which EY matches. My total comp according to the Better Me dashboard is ~$105k However, my take home each month after taxes is ~$2.4k. The ADP app tells me that 32.5% goes to taxes and my gross pay is 67.5%. This just doesn’t seem right…anyone help explain?
