We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?
Your task is to blow a job interview in the first 30 seconds. What do you do? “How strict is the sexual harassment policy?”
Ladies, I have a dilemma. I know the choice is ultimately mine, but I wanted some input. I met my current boyfriend through my cousin and he lives in Chicago. The plan was for me to move to Chicago in the next couple of months. I planned on just continuing my job with PwC. However, I was applying for jobs in NYC and just received and offer for a company I’ve always wanted to work for. I feel like I’m going to have to make a choice between my job and my relationship. What would you do?

“Picking up” the phone and calling someone vs emailing or texting is a hot topic. I am GenX who prefers setting up time to talk and preferring text or email unless phone time is booked. My GenX boss gets LIVID that my team is not an off-the-cuff phone culture. She has a sales background and mine is straight delivery/implementation. Just venting.
What are your thoughts on Adcolor Futures? Have you heard of it? Is it worth applying to?

I really want to work in an office again. I like putting stuff on the walls, talking with people, the serendipity of things. I think it benefits the work. Who else is looking forward?
Looking to leave big4 and return to the practice of law, preferably in house counsel somewhere. In my search, I notice some of the big4 firms (e.g, PWC) are actually hiring in house legal counsel. Curious to know details about these positions and departments if anyone has insight. Good/bad culture, pay, how you’re evaluated, etc.?

Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

How can utilization encourage efficiency? I have a 30hr code and I finished the work in 5hr. If I charge 5, the write up gives credit to the partner and my utilization suffers.
So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country. Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?
Hi Guys, do we get any survey after joining pwc ac bangalore to choose mode of work remote/ office location. HR mentioned that it during the discussion.
How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
Lots of “deloitte days” and extra days off this year. Do other big 4 do this? It’s been nice to get extra vacation
I got fired recently for vague performance issue reasons (which were never detailed to me) and it has completely gutted my confidence. Has this happened to anyone and have they come back from it?

Have only worked for boutiques in the past, so I’m expecting there to be some major differences in terms of working style. What are the major differences and ‘watch outs’ you would point out to me? Could be anything from culture, to red tape, to compliance etc.
