If you’re planning to leave one big 4 for another and also switch from one service line to another, is it worth asking your current company to make the internal transfer happen instead? It’s something I just recently started looking into and I didn’t mention a word of it on my annual review just recently. It would 100% come out of left field and I almost feel like they would at a minimum want me to do another busy season in audit before making it happen. Almost feel like a clean break is easier.

Is KPMG Tax Ignition- Data Analyst the same as the rest of the big 4 tax tech. Do you guys do programming with Python, R, and SQL?
PSA: never hire b4 & Accenture mc for anything that is close to strategy work. Just started at T2 strategy firm and it turns out we are cheaper than b4, lols. I would for sure hire t2 instead for better talent.

Quick question - can you travel with an Allen key in your carry on (for adjusting spin shoes in the road). It’s not sharp at all. Seems less dangerous than a pen.
My firm has been WFH since March. Some attorneys started going back in to the office a few times per week. I don’t feel comfortable going back yet and to be honest I really enjoy WFH. It’s convenient, it saves time getting ready (I’m a woman so I save an hour in the morning not doing hair/makeup), commuting, lunch, etc. Once people are getting vaccinated and the partners start requiring us to come in to the office again, how do I express that I would prefer to continue WFH?

I’m currently working at a law firm in San Diego specializing in coastal property rights as a litigation paralegal and legal assistant. We received a minute order from a preliminary injunction hearing. Our client was ordered to post an injunction bond of $2,500. First our client walked to the courthouse to try to pay the bond up front, but they would not accept his money. He tried to call several bond companies, but all said the amount was too small. So how do you post an injunction bond?
Anyone have any experience applying for a job at a client through a standard job listing on their website? Assume no conflicts of interest. Asking for a friend.
