known for LS work, good pay, decent WLB depending on who you ask

I'd like to know to!

If you’re interested in pharma, up there with MB. Otherwise, everything else is something we’re working to improve our scope in

Any traction on that ?

Why is ZS not on Gartner or Forrester quadrants?

Anyone in Big 4 who is in AUP (unclaimed property)? I’d like to focus on it (best WLB I’ve seen so far) and jump firms. Have almost 2yrs AUP exp (more in tax). Can anyone share insights on your teams?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Do people feel like that have more/less/equal opportunity as "others" being black in a Big 4?

Accepted an offer to join a small mom and pop firm (~50 ppl) there’s ex big 4 there, I’ll be running implementations as a Director. At a tier 2 firm now (going on 4 years) only a small pay bump but better title. TC could be much higher as they claim to pay a high bonus. Don’t start until end of July, and haven’t yet put in my two weeks. Sort of regretting the decision to leave. Feels like this would prevent me from getting to big 4, MBB or similar sized firm later down the road. Thoughts?

So there’s been a lot of nyc hating lately on here but here’s my position/current debate. I love nyc - the five years I lived there out of college were the absolute best.
