If you really want to go to first firm tell them you are actually interested in group X instead of group Y. If you don’t have any preference, then still tell them that you have actually received offer from another firm for a group that seems more interested to you. That way if they try to move you to respected group, you can ask for more money.

I just did the same. Want me to shoot you an email template? Lol

Like EY1 said, just send an email you can’t join anymore Sure you might burn bridges but they will probably forget about it next week

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
