True story: a guy who worked for me was an under-performer in all the ways one can under performer. He is now the head of a hot agency. On one hand, he wasn’t a good cultural fit, which I suspect crippled his confidence. But what I learned is that at the time he was struggling with addiction. He got sober, found his footing and skyrocketed. I encourage you to consider that we never know what someone is going through, and we sure as shit don’t know the extent their potential.

People get fired for all sorts of reasons and often it’s politics. My advise to you is that unless you’ve had a negative personal experience working with person than you should keep it to yourself. You wouldn’t want anyone doing it to you. Especially someone you’ve never personally worked with or along-side

Giving people chances is a good thing. Sometimes people are just in the wrong place. For that to follow them forever prevents them from actually learning from that experience to move on productively. Imho of course.

I'd say you've heard rumors and are not sure what's true or not so you recommend they check references.
I wouldn't in any way repeat what you've heard as you're just spreading more gossip and other people's judgment. Never talk trash about others ever for a myriad of reasons, much less if your experience is not firsthand!

And I know we’ve all been let go. But she had a bad rep and was lazy with an attitude. Heard this from all team members, from account to her writer.

I just had this same experience. But she had s terrible reputation. I never worked with her. But I spoke to her AD, boss, and the person who sat next to her for 2 years. They all had legit reasons why she was let go. The smaller the place, the more a “bad apple” hurts morale.

Advisors I have a sincere question. No judgment regardless of your answer. Say you have a Senior Registered Client Associate with AWMA designation & 20 years experience in additionto 2 other less experienced CA's as partof your team. You urgently need another advisor to join your team due to the sheer volume of clients. Would you prefer to:
1) hire a junior advisor with little experience & possibly no licenses
2) seek to promote 1 of your CA's
Why?

Hi Fishes,
Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months?
I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases?

Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

Not cpa related, but if anyone is applying to pwc start internship 2021 and you identify as a minority you can "present yourself as a minority" and a recruiter will refer you to a web page to see if you meet this criteria.

I’ve heard of some account service individuals who jumped from Account Executive/Account Manager to Account Supervisor (vs AE -> SAE -> AS). From research, it’s seems like an SAE requires 3-4 YOE and an AS required 4-6 YOE. However, for those who have experienced this jump in their own career, do you feel the account sup role you landed to be more “junior level” than a “normal” AS role normally is? Did your team feel adequately supported, or should they have hired a more experience AS?
