How’s the big 4 job market in Miami metro area?..planning to request a transfer or apply to other big4/8
Leaving Big 4 for Academia - I do not enjoy it. I know I don’t fit in. The idea of being told what to do, right or wrong, etc. I am a problem solver (research-wise), not a doer. Thoughts?
Looking for advice. I’m a sr. associate in cyber at a Big 4 on track for a promo to manager in a year. My old employer reached out to me about coming back as an Assoc. Dir., BISO. Concern is that this BISO role would not have bonuses (nonprofit), so I’d potentially be “throwing away” $ by leaving consulting now. Would opps later on be better having had an associate director role on my résumé before I’m 30? Should I stick it out in consulting? The job is a dream, but short term $ is def less.

I’m a staff 2 in a big 4 public accounting firm and into luxury watches. Would I be penalized wearing say a Rolex day-date, full gold Daytona, or Patek gold nautilus to the office?

Are there any downsides to working for A&M? I keep getting messages from their recruiters and I’m pretty tempted. However I’ve got a pretty good gig at my current firm - culture is great, I work reasonable hours, and I feel well paid. I know the money will obviously be better over at A&M but do I stand to lose my work life balance/culture? Alvarez & Marsal
I'm an S2 in a top 30 accounting firm. Is not going the Big 4 route going to hinder my career growth? I'm thinking of making the switch for a year or two for the name on my resume. But is it worth it?

This is going to sound crazy - has anyone ever encounter another person showing up for the job on day one? 😕 I really don’t think this is the guy we interviewed on Zoom (for an IT position). I’ve kept it to myself so far. We are now on day three. Don’t know what I should do.
