How often do people get laid off at one of the Big 4 after one year? Just curious to hear different opinions because I just saw someone on linkedin who is a Tax Consultant at Deloitte work there for a year, and are now back to their old job. Keep in mind, this person is extremely intelligent and knows what they are doing. Just shocked and a bit intimidated to start in PA at one of the Big 4. EY PwC KPMG Deloitte

Currently with a Salesforce boutique prod and consulting firm as a Manager and make around $135k base with 5% bonus. Very good WLB and loyalty perks. 0% Travel. No layoffs at all. I got an offer from Deloitte for a Sr Consultant position with the base of 145k. Yet to negotiate. I have total 7 yoe. Is this the right move considering just $10k increase in pay? How much Deloitte brand matters for exit ops? I prefer good WLB if not great and prefer travel to be under 50%

If you still believe the election was stolen, you should be fired from your job because no client deserves a consultant with such poor critical thinking skills.

Hi all, Finally COVID-19 caught up with me. Not health-wise but career wise. I was laid off and am looking for a job. Ple I was working as an Associate Consultant with ZoomRx in the Business Analysis team. I was handling multiple high velocity end-to-end projects. I have a total experience of around 4 years of which close to 2.5 years are in the consulting space. I intend to continue my career in the same line i.e as a consultant. Please let me know if there are any relevant openings.
