Left EY as a senior for a financial reporting role in industry and the promotion track is a little cloudy. Would I be able to go back to EY or another big 4 as a manager in advisory?
Returning from 2 weeks PTO and questioning every life decision that has led me to where I am today
Got "let go" at a big 4 strategy group during probation. I recognize the errors that I made and I have definitely learned from the experience. However, I think strategy consulting is what I want to do right now and I want to apply at the competition. The market conditions couldn't be better. But my story is not the easiest to tell. I assume recruiters know right away what's going on, even if I come up with compelling arguments.
Any best practices / tips you can share?

How do you talk to junior associate about biglaw work expectations without sounding like a jerk? He (first year) was surprised we worked on MLK day when someone assigned him something to do then. I too asked him to take on assignment over weekend. Simple 30 min to an hour job. He said he was out hanging with family. I totally respect work life balance (I did work to cover for him). But I do wanna let him know it’s not a 9 to 5 before he acts so nonchalant toward a partner who might not get it.

How strict is the up or out policy at MBB? Currently have an offer and incredibly excited to join but also nervous about up or out. Was let go from the firm I used to work for during the height of COVID. Would hate to leave my current company, where I’m performing well, and not be able to make the promo cut if I join MBB

I am a Senior SF Admin with 9 years of SF experience. Mostly I look after a team consisting of Admins and do all usual Admin stuff plus BA/Consultant work. I recently got a very good offer from a Product company but the job role is Salesforce Support Manager. Though I don't mind being in support vertical but I am worried that I might drift away from SFDC Domain and get involved more in the Support process and eventually take my career away from Salesforce.
