Thoughts on making a move as a Exp SC or waiting until likely Manager promo at YE 2021? Non b4 advisory role with bulk of exp in Internal Audit and SOX. Have tried to get staffed on more diverse projects with little success over the last 4y. Pretty disheartened with current trajectory and project work. Any advice appreciated.

Do you want to keep doing IA or Sox? If so make M. Do you want to transition work type? If so it’s easier to transition as Exp SC. You may even be able to negotiate Exp SC hire reviewed for promotion after one year.

I don’t long term, but I admit my role on my current project(s) has helped my progression thus far. I have been told the market looks at/values Managers much differently, so was curios to what extent. Thanks for the advice!

Asking for my spouse. She is five months pregnant and has a amazon offer. She works for Deloitte too. Deloitte definitely has a better maternity leave but amazon is doubling her take home salary. Also agreed to work from home for two years. Thoughts? Stress wise her Deloitte practice ( strategy) is probably as stressful or more as compared to amazon role so it literally boils down to maternity benefits for us.

So I’m one of 2 BA’s on a project where we’re not given much responsibility by our SC( He’s acting M). He owns almost everything from USI calls, calls with the clients (he leads/doesn’t include us), and only allows us to execute testing and when I ask to support in other activities he says “it’ll be easier if I just do it.” I understand that however how are we expected to develop, learn, and get ready for our next roles? I just feel as if he’s not very good at delegating.

Has anyone received/know of a HireVue request from Accenture (Federal) with the title "Introduce Yourself" under the Job Title portion?

I'm also just wondering if this is a "serious" screening interview or something HR uses to keep on file (just so I can prepare accordingly). Thanks!

I need some advice on deciding to leave my job. At my current job I’m up for promotion in 5 months and pretty confident I will get the 25% raise, however I’m very unfulfilled and feel like I’m wasting my time staying at the company. On the other hand I have an unofficial offer that will automatically give me that 25% raise in a project I care about, but after discussing negotiations 25% is the cap. Should I stick it out and then jump into the job market for more % raise or leave now?
