People always say how hard it is to get fired if u work hard at a big 4 but people get put on pips left and right which lead to getting fired. So I guess not getting fired is just a myth

As you all may know by now that there is always an if involved so the myth is if you are average smart and hard worker you will not get fired. Now there are people who are street smart and will get the job but won’t last long because they are not avg smart in their field and are not hard worker

As I mentioned above there is always an if there, I was speaking about how things are currently. The people who lost jobs in recession could be really smart and hard working and just lost jobs because of recession. Also, I started post recession so have no idea how many people lost jobs.

To my Deloitte colleagues: I just returned from maternity leave, and while I’m very grateful I was able to stay home with baby for 6 months I’m really anxious about returning and my utilization (50% now). Our RM is really slow and says we have a lot of new projects but hasn’t assigned me to one. I am doing trainings but not billing, and I don’t believe I’ll be staffed next week or the next either. Have reached out to a partner for extra work but haven’t heard back. Afraid I’ll get fired.

2nd year partner at a top 6 accounting firm. Have offer from big 4 for $200K more annually. Don’t really want to take it, but how can I not.? That’s approx a college education annually after tax. Should I try to negotiate or just take the money and jump ship. Feeling Seriously undervalued for what I’m bringing to the firm in terms of people building, sales, book of business. Hate to not be loyal, but $200K is $200K. Advice please

Hi guys. I recently moved from one big 4 to another as a fresh manager. I’ve been here a few months and have been working remotely, but I don’t think I’m getting the right coaching I need to climb up the ranks. One thing I’m looking to do is build relationships with Partners/MDs in other teams to get additional coaching from them. But I don’t know how or where to start as I’m totally new and inexperienced in this sort of thing. I’ll appreciate any thoughts on how I can do this effectively.

I'm frustrated. Everywhere I've worked I've gotten great reviews and even leadership awards. At my last company my boss was promoted to CAO. She hired a director but made her VP of HR at hire due to someone leaving. VP ran 6 HR directors out of the co (we all left without jobs lined up). After I left my team quit & the CAO was fired. Now they promoted this VP to a Sr VP. I gave so much, got nothing, yet she fell into SVP. I have a new Director level job. How do I break into the VP level?

I’m curious as to what organizations actually pay for some of these external training courses. For example, I see SANS courses and training, which are highly regarded but extremely expensive. Most large firms including the Big 4 do all training in house and won’t allow you to expense unless there’s a need, which I’d assume would be hard to justify and get approval for. I’d imagine most F500s don’t have the training budgets for those either.
