What do people typically wear to holiday parties? This is my first one since I began working so just want an idea. Thanks!
Does anyone else just want to skip Christmas this year? I used to really like it, but now it's hard not to roll my eyes when I think about the holiday. I'm also telling everyone not to get me anything. Nothing is wrong, I just couldn't be less interested at the moment.
Can someone from ACN tell me how the new maternity leave policy works? Contacted HR, read the policy but an confused if you get the 16 weeks plus FMLA, then your PTO if you want to take that.
Sorry if a duplicate post... is EY FSO having a holiday party this year? Or the answer is no again?
Friend was terminated from regional CPA firm after 6 years. No severance whatsoever, only paid out for accrued PTO. Does he have a case for legal action?

Has anyone bought a Black Friday or Cyber Monday electronic that’s helped with their work? Trying to find some ideas to treat myself. Hope everyone’s having a nice holiday weekend!
My parents are very stubborn about money, but not in a helpful way. They’ll easily spend 14k on an annual1 week vacation but disapprove of regular UberEats or minor things.How do I get them to budget?
I have a holiday party with my group at work (small group of 20) and their plus ones. I invited the girl I'm seeing and she said yes. I want to bring her and show her off, and plus, she's a great conversationalist. We're seeing each other exclusively but haven't dtr'ed. I'm also new to this group so I haven't really come out to anyone yet because it hasn't come up in conversation. How would you introduce her? Are people gonna ask a bunch of questions if I just say "this is X?"
Had my on-site interviews before thanksgiving holiday. Recruiter updated early last week mentioning that all are already ooo and she will have an update when everyone is back this week. Literally nothing yet, thinking of emailing her on Friday? What do you suggest
Partners how much do you spend on holiday gifts for your admin staff? and I am assuming a gift card is the norm?
Got an offer for 20k+ (11%) more than my current salary, but this job won’t be remote compared to my current role which is. New offer has better health plans/5 more days of PTO. Would you take it?
Who else feels bitter looking at everyone’s happy holiday instagrams while they spend the week churning slides? My only consolation is I probably make more than most of these people.
Deloitte folks, how long does three background check normally take? (Assuming pretty generic profile, citizen, clean record, etc.) Trying to plan 2 week notice and vacation

Oh the wait for H1B transfer is killing me
Currently an S1 in TR in the north west, making 94k. Just started talks with KPMG, what should I throw out there for salary expectations? I stated 110k and was told that’s in range, just want to make sure I’m not undercutting myself.

What is the average salary right now for an experienced associate moving into a senior role? I’ve got offers from RSM, SSF, CohnReznick, and Grant Thornton. I know the market is hot right now, how hard should I push to get a high paying salary? Also, what is a good sign on bonus?
Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?
Anyone else taking the CFE and can give insight to whether the actual test was the same questions from the review/practice questions? Any study tips? FYI they are also changing their proctoring system in July. Thank you!

Considering an offer from Facebook for L5 Manager (Non-tech in recruiting) in Austin (remote). TC started at 178. Now 200 TC which I’m told is top of the pay band. Kinda confused because TC feels low for L5 people manager and pay sounds like L5 IC Austin pay. Any thoughts on if this is competitive or if you get a pay cut for working remote? Data to consider: interviews went really well, currently at Google (considering the move for growth to manage 12-20). No info on lvls.fyi for this role

What's the most cringe company wide emails you've seen? Here's one sent to around 6k folks in the org upon the guy getting fired: --- For all of you who are young, intelligent, motivated, and have a great value structure, I would urge you to leave this firm now. Most of the best talent has already left. Take my advice, as most of you have grown to respect me over the years. Sent from my iPad
