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%

Hey all - I wanted to ask if anyone has ever felt that things were not going to work out. I was a consultant for a T3 consulting firm and, despite excellent reviews was laid off without warning.

I am told that I am highly skilled and have the capacity to be one of the best but I keep failing. I am 26 and my career feels like purgatory.
