Should I get a CPA if I don't plan on pursuing audit whatsoever? I was recently offered positions such as M&A and TAS at two different firms and I plan on following that relative pathway. Thoughts?
Could anyone tell me on the onboarding process in optum. Do we need to report to office. And what's next..
About to ask for a raise on Friday for the first time in my life! 28 yrs old and worked in the industry for 4 yrs before joining advisory in Jan. Also have an MBA.

I’m job hunting in Los Angeles, looking at a variety of titles (HRBP, Sr. HRBP, Manager, Sr. Manager, Director). I have 8 YOE and my SHRM-SCP. I reached my report limit on payscale.com, so I used a variety of other sites to price the roles (BLS, salary.com, Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Robert Half). The problem I’m having is the huge inconsistencies between sources (there are $40k differences between some of the identified medians). (Continued…)

Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)

I’m not sure how I missed it. The solution has been right in front of us all this time…
Investor relations exits from deal advisory, how do you guys feel about it in terms of pay, wlb?
People that were previously externally hired as S3 into FDD from audit, how long did it take you to get promoted by your firm to manager. What were hurdles you had to face outside of getting caught up to speed in a new LoS.
Is the promotional structure in Big 4 TAS/FDD similar to how it is in Big 4 Audit? E.g. 2 yrs at associate, 2-3 yrs at senior, etc?
Or is it more merit based where you’re promoted when ready, e.g. 1-1.5 yrs at associate, 1.5-2 yrs at senior, etc?
If the latter, what’s the fastest you’ve seen someone get promoted and at which levels? Thanks
On an average recruiting cycle, which month would be the ideal time to move from audit to FDD?
