Ladies! I am looking for comfortable heels now that we are going back to the office and client site. How do people feel about the block heel pumps? Do you think it's cute or a little old-fashioned? Thanks☺️
Hi anyone take part in the associate cloud developer program? I have an interview today with a recruiter and wanted to know a bit more about the role
In the second stage of an interview process that involves a take home project that is due when you want. Recruiter said to not spend more than 3-4 hours on it. Got it a day ago and planning to work on it and submit on Monday. Should i stick to the three hour time frame or does it look bad to put in more work?

How would a remote first semester affect my chances of getting an MBA intern offer at MBB? I’m going to Booth in September. If I have an option to do the first semester remote, I’d consider it, as long as it’s not going to kill my chances of interning at MBB. I’d love perspective from someone who has gone through the target school MBA recruiting process.
Quite disappointed that Bain ignored “LGBT” term and instead referred it as “special group” during a Greater China pre-MBA info session, when asked whether Bain has LGBT diversity program. Bain changed its logo into Pride on LinkedIn but can’t recognize LGBT? I know it’s China, but expect Bain to be more supportive across the firm globally.
How many sick leaves does ACN have?
PowerPoint gurus - I’m helping a client find short term help for an important presentation. Please DM me if you are good at storytelling and slide design. You will be compensated for this work. This will be a 3-4 day part-time engagement. I’m at a small tech focused firm, and don’t have in-house designers as yet. Plus I don’t want to spend hours building slides. Nothing illegal or fishy here. Thanks!
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

I was finally received an offer my dream position and I am thrilled but the on boarding process will be delayed by 6 months. However, I also applied for the same position two years ago and was rejected. This time around, I reached out to an internal contact who helped me get an interview. I am kicking myself for not reaching out sooner, two years ago. really sad about it.
I’m beginning to get the impression that BigLaw partners are glorified relationship managers and the associates are tasked with the actual lawyering and being the partner’s ghost writer.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
