Should I still take the interview but try and negotiate when and if I get the offer?


Also is a salary bump the main (or a very important) reason you’re looking to switch?


Your career is a marathon not a race. I’d spend time to build skills at Ey which will help you further position yourself in 1-2 years

Doesn’t sound worth it. They’re resetting you to zero. You shouldn’t pursue an opportunity that is entry and doesn’t give you credit for your experience.


Yes - allows you to answer fearlessly. You will do well in the interview

Of course. Are there other benefits that you could negotiate for like bonus, pto, rsus etc.?

The email stated that the salary expectation was in the mid to high sixties including the total rewards package.

What level are you? Mid to high 60s still sounds entry level.

I know little about your situation, but I feel like you could encounter better opps down the line. 1y each at two companies at the start of your career may look like you’re jumping around too much. Best of luck


Sounds awful. Stick w EY and you can make well over 100k in a few years.

You are like my friends who quit and went into software development. They all had to take pay cuts and start over. They are happy tho.

Both went from the 85-100 range at EY & D (federal), to 60’s range at startups in the DC area for a few years before getting enough experience to go west coast. I’m considering changing too, just got promoted but I’m unhappy w my current skill set.

Hi SKP, I have my final round interview for SKP tomorrow (entry-level consultant, about to finish bachelor's). I've come to learn that SKP is about to update pay bands in a few weeks to adjust compensation to be more in line with the market rate. 
 My question: If I were to get an offer following my interview tomorrow, would it be based on the new pay band or current one given I most likely wouldn't have my start date until January? How can I know which band it is? Simon-Kucher & Partners

New/pivoting into HR! 👋 Currently working as a TA Coord with a little entry level work in HR Ops prior to this. Is there a SHRM link, reliable test, or method of shadowing the various parts of HR that will provide a sample of the work, thinking, and day to day experience of each group? I didn’t go to school for HR and therefore haven’t had the opportunity to sample HR Ops. vs. TA vs. Comp vs. Benefits vs. Payroll, etc. I know work experience is the best barometer, but what can supplement this?

Hi! I left ZS after 2.5 years as a 6 months AC to join EY as a SCon. I want to join ZS back as soon as I complete a year here. I’ve heard that people join ZS back but do they have to go through the same interview process or it’s different for them? Also, what kind of compensation and role can I expect once I join back considering I get a 16.5LPA+ Bonus here. Do you recommend going back to ZS or should I stay with EY India?
