Has anyone else in NY had an offer delayed? I was told by my EY recruiter that it would take some time to receive the verbal and written offer due to a new background check for NYC residents; I was told unofficially that the team liked me and wanted to move forward and we discussed comp and start date. I’m a little concerned something else is going on and my offer will go to someone else. Am I worrying too much? Thanks! EY

Hey everyone has anyone switched to a diff big4? I am having issues on my team where they don’t think Im at level, but my team has not been good at feedback and or coaching I am an A2. I had been thinking of moving to another big 4 for awhile but being blindsided by where they think I am at, which I don’t necessarily agree with fully , is pushing me away more. Has anyone had a successful switch?
When do you start not caring too much? Of course you need to care, but here I mean too much. For example, keep thinking of a negative comment, frustrated when client was not happy ….

Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.

Last round of interview coming up for an analyst/associate role in IB M&A. I have 2 years of experience in Big4 M&A. The previous interview round was very technical, and the last round will be a ”business case”, which lasts about 3.5 hours, including a short introduction, 2-hour preparation, and a presentation. They will provide me the PC. What would you expect an IBD case study to be like? I’m not sure if I have to build everything from scratch or if I can use some ready-made layouts.
For my Raymond James friends--how did you decide between W2 and 1099 channel? What were the main benefits that swayed you to which side? Was it the right move?
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
People on here asking if it’s ok to take off time for the holidays or if they’re sick...seems like something may be wrong with this profession as a whole if these are common questions :(
Got my H1B transfer+extension approved after one denial and two specialty occupation RFEs. Key takeaways: you need 4+ support letters, 5+ pages of detailed job duties, and sample work product
Had interviews at three different places recently, all of which seemed to go well. Recruiters/HR people told me they’d be in touch with next steps end of last week or early this week. Haven’t heard from any of the three and none of them have responded to follow-up emails 🙃
