If public, how difficult is their f/s auditors. This is perhaps more important than anything in my experience. I see tax directors resign all the time because of how miserable their auditors make them every quarter. Second most important in my opinion is who the tax department reports to. Tax groups that report to the controller, generally are not the happiest as they have very limited freedom/decision making powers.

I’m convinced that while practice does help, case studies are fundamentally designed to evaluate your critical thinking skills and IQ — which are immutable qualities. No matter how many mock cases I do, I can’t seem to figure out how they work and therefore can’t crack any interviews (10+ tries). I don’t think I’m as smart as I once thought 😕😕

SAP contractor hiring is broken. Everyone knows it. On one end we have customers paying good money for all levels of talent and on the other contractors are being j***d off by vendors and layers.
