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

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.
