Yeah it was a horrible mistake and I still think of it to this day. Haven’t had one sip of any alcohol since the incident.

It might limit your growth if you are on a visa. Take a defensive driving course and see if you get it expunged using a lawyer.

Depends on how recent it was and the circumstances of the arrest and how it was adjudicated. Can’t really answer with clarity without more details.

I had a friend who got hired at a Big4 firm and his DUI showed up on the background check. HR called him and there was a conversation about it but he was still hired. Best of luck

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

As a smaller player, how does Slalom differentiate itself in the market from Big 4 firms and how are they positioned to grow their business going forward compared to bigger firms like Accenture, MBB, Big4? Is it price? Quality of work? Specialized work? Curious to hear perspective from someone with experience or knowledge of the competitive landscape.
