Which office

It’s a good office. The people are great, and strat definitely has a great leadership team. But you will not have work life balance if you want to succeed. That’s just not how it works, there will be someone right behind you hungrier who will be rewarded for giving up their weekends and working late nights. Yes that’s most of the industry but it’s the culture here. I personally like it as you have some of the best/ most passionate people but if you’re not willing to put in the time it will feel a little lonely.

DFW area: currently making 98k with potentially 3-5% raise and 3-5% bonus (should know for sure in July) and no CPA. 7 years of experience in PA - audit. Remote 100%.

DEI in partnership. I’m in a large firm, and we are going through our list of partner candidates by practice, industry, region … new language today: “if you want to put up a male candidate, you need to put up a female candidate first.” While I’m an advocate of diversity and the need for explicit checks to avoid unconscious biases, this is getting uncomfortable. Are we getting closer to discrimination? Are we walking away from meritocracy? Disclosure: I’m male.
