Boomerangs - Did you get a raise when you boomeranged back to your old big 4 firm? If so, how much? Tips to negotiate.
Hey ladies- bit of a touchy personal subject. I had my male counterpart recently use a counteroffer that was extended to me to try to push his own raise. Should I feel offended that he's piggybacking off my offer? (We do not have same work balance for context- he has 4 direct reports to my my 1 direct report and the same workload).
Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?
To all my Canadians working at ACN. What is taken into consideration for promotion? (Analyst to Consultant).Do I always have to ask for feedbak on myperformance tool?Or will my CC contact my managers?
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.

Got this ‘congrats on your promotion’ wine. Is it just me or is the irony too much to bear
How are the agencies doing these days with promotion and pay raise? I was told that I was supposed to get promoted to an AS (I’m AE/SAE right now ~1 year mark) but now is being told that there is only a promotion without a raise. Not sure if this means I need to start looking or everyone is going through the same struggle.
Ladies I have been reflecting on something that's been bothering me a lot. Women are not getting promoted to manager fast enough. I am up for promotion this year and it feels hard to get your name out
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Looks like I'm going to get passed up for a promotion this cycle - many of the reasons being things outside of my control. Finding it really difficult to stay motivated. Any words of wisdom or (cont.)

Before someone says comparison is thief of joy, share your experiences and thought process if possible... My wife and I have a very stable career here in the US with 400K HHI and just hit our 30s with our first kid. But I personally know friends who have very successful start ups (read unicorns) in India and several others going down that path. I don't feel very complacent but don't want to risk moving the family now in search of a startup in India (either my own or joining one). Contd...
Busy season doesn't really feel like it used to be anymore. I think before, it was generally understood it would take half of the time of the year, but now it feels like it covers 70 to 90% of the year. I would love to hear if this is the feeling from people who work at big 4, mid tier/regional and small boutique cpa firms?
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?
