West monroe has fantastic culture and wlb (rarely work over 40 hours). It definitely feels very tight knit and culture fit is a huge part of our interview process

It definitely differs between practices and location. I would say it ranges from 105-135

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

Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.

I'm 24 and living at home with my family on a $60K salary. Due to living at home, I've been able to dollar cost average a big sum into ETFs every month. Over the past year and a half, I've been able to put away $50K between my emergency fund and brokerage account. However, I'm starting to think about moving out. Thoughts on renting vs buying at this age and now? Is it better to keep putting large amounts into ETFs or should I start saving for a down payment? Thank you!
