I had a second round(which was a final round as well) of an interview couple of days back. But yet to receive any feedback on it. Normally how much time hr team takes for a revert? Waiting makes me feel anxious.

How do you tell a company that you have upcoming in-person interviews for, that you want to withdraw from the process? Did some more research and it doesn’t sound like a good place to be at.

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about.

Amazon had initially scheduled 4 rounds of interview on 2 consecutive days. I finished 2 rounds in the first day. On the second day, they rescheduled one interview to the next week and then they canceled both the rounds. Does this mean I'm out of the process?

My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?
How important is it to provide availability for more immediate dates than later dates?
I was asked for availability for 3 interviews in a day. However I'm traveling for work next week but I don't want to lose out on this opportunity just cause I will give a later availability date.

Have you noticed inflation and the general chaos we're moving through affecting your business and firm? Just asking for different perspectives here, not a political discussion.
What are some key ways you balance stress and not taking it out on others/family? It's something I'm always working on but none of us are perfect. That said, I've made vast improvements. During the winter it's always harder as I feel many of my outlets are limited [like golf etc]
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?
I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.
Where are all the accounting professionals going? Competitive pay and benefits aren’t enticing enough. People want work/life balance but how can firms provide that when the workforce supply is so low yet demand is at an all-time high. If technology is the answer are there firms that are successfully implementing solutions?

2nd year partner at a top 6 accounting firm. Have offer from big 4 for $200K more annually. Don’t really want to take it, but how can I not.? That’s approx a college education annually after tax. Should I try to negotiate or just take the money and jump ship. Feeling Seriously undervalued for what I’m bringing to the firm in terms of people building, sales, book of business. Hate to not be loyal, but $200K is $200K. Advice please
No judgment tax question. Would a covered deck extension and repair to be used for work purposes (home office) be classified a deductible business expense? Need guidance.
Newer partner and first time having extra money to invest. I’ve maxed my 401k contributions past few years and currently have the rest in a brokerage account. I’m planing for a lot more contributions the next ~20 years until I retire. What does everyone else do? Is the Roth IRA the way to go? 529 plans for the kids?
It’s better to stay if you have a clear path. Big 4 will always be more prestigious and provide access to the best clients.
(Audit perspective) I think it comes down to do you think you can handle the stress of a B4 partner expectations. “Prestige” is really not a motivation for me, outside of accounting firm world and CFO/CAO no one really places high value of CPAs in my opinion, so who are you impressing. I’m at GT, make very good money and my stress is very different than B4. So you make partner 2-3 years earlier (guaranteed verse the maybe carrot at B4) and long term money is a few hundred thousand less a year at the later stage of your partner career, but the family time availability and stress level is well worth it.
I did something similar when I was a couple years from B4 partner. Chose a firm where I could work on the clients I like. Have been a partner for about 13 years, make a tad over $1.6m, first broke $1m in my 7th year as partner. I have no idea how that compares to B4, I assume I’m probably leaving a couple hundred on the table maybe. I honestly have no clue. Retirement package pretty good. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on that either. Again I don’t know for sure. But I’m very much in control of my own career. It was the right move for me. And for my family.
Why not hear what they have to say? Big4 partner is probably more prestigious, but who knows if you’ll ever get there. Just making MD doesn’t make partner a sure thing.
PwC same at Deloitte. Very few convert.
What’s the motivating factor? There may be opportunities to go for partner at your current firm, I have seen it happen before.
Not something I would entertain personally.
Depends on how low you are looking at. If you are staying in top15, then it’s not too much of a change assuming you aren’t working on Fortune 100 audits.
If you really do have a clear 2 year path, stay. The comp and benefits and opportunities are so much better. Depends on how much you’re betting on yourself
If I were in your shoes I’d compare the current comp and long term comp, retirement and ability to defer income options - including any pension. Big 4 is different for Partners vs Managing Directors, but usually both are better than smaller firms - provided continued success in your roles.
