Been working midsize for 9 months. I really want to go up to the big 4… 1) is it too early to leave? 2) Is it too late to apply? I’m on the east coast. Preferably NY/NJ if anyone can reference. 3) how do I explain to the recruiter why I’m leaving so early?

Can anyone provide input on Grant Thornton’s SALT practice? Considering leaving Big 4 SALT for GT, but want to gather more input before making a decision.
New consultant here - when people talk about Strategy & Operations, what exactly is the operations side and what do they do? Coming from the perspective of the B4 firms having the more prestigious S&O group, but also having a separate supply chain/operations group? What’s the difference between the two ops groups?
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?

In Jan Im leaving to go to another Big 4 in a similar role. Once I give notice, if I'm asked to leave the same day does this mean EY is firing me? Or will they still pay for term of the notice?
Just joined a new company and they’re transitioning from JustWorks to TriNet (we have about 80 employees, doubling in size next year). Has anyone used TriNet before? How was your experience?
International Tax SA here. A partner at Deloitte IT group reached out to me on Linkedin for an opening. I replied and he wants to talk on the phone about the opportunity. Does this happen a lot? Don’t think I’ve ever heard a partner recruiting directly on Linkedin. Anyone has any thoughts?

Talked to a guy for a month and then we decided to just be friends with benefits. Since then our texts have mostly been about arranging our next hookup. I don’t think we are compatible in the long run, but we do share some hobbies so I kinda wish our texts have been less superficial. Anyone knows how to navigate this?

TFW when your SM announces to the team that your manager is leaving the project while the manager is out on PTO. -_-

I amicably split from my wife in Dec 2020. After two months alone I got desperate for human touch and made an OLD profile. I quickly met a lovely woman and we're FWBs I guess? We haven't defined things (no ex talk, not exclusive) but we had a great summer (camping, hiking, biking, dinners, etc.) and I could see it getting serious. Problem is I haven't told her I'm estranged but still legally married. My ex has health issues that need my insurance and I can not cut her off after 10yrs together
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US.

Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?

When you actually get done with work at a reasonable hour on your travel day, decide to get some sleep and go to bed by 10:30pm... To just wake up at ~1:30am 😒
