[quote] Definitely depends on service line and city. Audit in houston you are basically a lock. Advisory/consulting in Dallas its a toss up. Basically more people want to live in Dallas and there is less work. Not familiar with NYC though in terms of offers etc.[/quote]
Good point. I'm thinking t...

[quote]I don't work for EY so no advice there. But you have to do something pretty stupid to not get an offer after an office visit with any of the big 4[/quote]
Very common misconception, and it is also very wrong. I've seen plenty of smart kids not get offers after an office visit.

It's honestly impossible for me to gauge on glassdoor. For my job and title there is like an 80K bandwidth from the low to high according to Glassdoor which is very realistic.
The reason it is so big is because a) annual raises are commonly double digit percentage b) There are informal sub-level...

Definitely go to Legends. It's the official LSU alum bar, and it's generally packed with LSU fans and SEC groupies. They generally play all the pregame songs, and play all in game band songs over the sound system. ...

The thing this article doesn't take into account is that many large companies out there start all undergrad hires in the same division/unit out at the same exact salary. There is no negotiating for many first jobs. My first job started all first year associates at 58K regardless of school or gpa. Th...

The sanctions against Iran are being relaxed not lifted. We've had sanctions programs against Iran for 30+ years. I don't foresee in the near future a total lifting of sanctions against Iran.
See my post above where I linked you to the current regs. For what you're wanting to do it is highly like...

As a US citizen there are very few things you can do in terms of transacting with/in Iran. While technically the sanctions with Iran are not considered comprehensive (i.e. Like Cuba), the sanctions are still very broad and far reaching as far as Iran is concerned.
