There’s an employee who works for a client, but not directly with me, who seems a bit “friendly”.

Where is the independence line drawn?ie. does it disappear the moment the audit is signed off?

If it’s not someone in a management position and directly tied to the audit why would it be an independence issue. I just suggest you call the independent hotline and ask. No big deal.

are you interested in them?

I don’t know—really trying to think this one through and strangely enough this independence thing is what my brain keeps going to. This is leading me to being more tactical in when I walk outside, just so I can avoid, for now.

This happened to me. They are a recurring client so I told him To leave me alone because of independence and told my manager about it.

Shoot your shot, unless you’re a director or partner, this independence thing isn’t going to do much. At most you might get moved off the client temporarily (if the person is involved in the audit or is being audited by you). Don’t let it get you down

If I liked the person I would shoot my shot and if we started dating I would roll off the engagement.

Just do it. Sheesh...

I guess I really shouldn’t give this as much thought as I am ? 🙄

Base/bonus are about the same. SAP has RSUs but not with the offer. Snowflake has RSU as part of the offer (not sure how much yet though). Both within a growing team with great potential, visibility, and impact.

SAP would be more sales support & client interactions more mplementation & sales engineering.
Snowflake would he dealing with tickets. Quarterly reviews with "quotas" and metrics. Weekend/holiday rotation as well.
