Say you get a job offer (industry or another big 4) and you’ve already gone through comp negotiation. Your current firm is offering to match and staying would be easier than starting fresh. Do you get blacklisted by the other big 4 or industry recruiters if you decide to stay?
How much of a pay increase can you expect switching from Big 4 to industry? And at what levels specially?
Normalize saying "RIP" to people posting "delighted to announce i have joined big 4 india"

I know we all complain about big 4 but Deloitte folk in DevOps or cyber do you like it? What type of projects do you get to work on, what are your benefits like? Deloitte contemplating a DevSecOps offer over JP Morgan
Would you go from a B4 (PwC) to a smaller firm for a pay bump (30% increase)?
Edit: Closer to 38% bump. 80K current vs 110K offered.
TCS Growth & Transformation industry vertical- good/bad/ugly? Received an offer within the above division, significant pay bump. How does this division compare to B4/ACN? Wouldn’t be outsourced work. Anyone know about the culture or WLB? Growth opportunity/Exit Strategy to MBB or T1? Thanks! TCS
MBB interview process is on hold but want to keep case prep fresh. How often is case study prep recommended each week to keep it fresh?
Can someone give me feedback on my profile?

McFish— how’s the Risk practice? What’s the big difference compared to the risk consulting in Big 4? Thank you!
I’m a heavy assurance senior manager at a Big 4 about to make a move to CFGI as a MD. Curious to hear from CFGI folks here on their experience working at the company or knowing people who’ve worked there. Looking for any red flags or “catches” or anything that I should consider.
Only reason I’m leaving my current firm is the WLB (or lack thereof). And yes, I know everyone has a different sense of WLB but averaging 80-90hours PW over the last 15 months is lack of WLB in my book.
Hey Fish Fam, I am about to put in my two weeks notice at a Big4. Going to industry. Any sage advice or pointers on what to say and what not to say/do? I really enjoyed working at B4 and made amazing network of supportive colleagues however this opportunity is way too good to pass. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Just moved to industry a few weeks ago as a manager (was formerly an SC at a non-B4/MBB). Any general advice for a newly minted manager?

A friends struck $$ with Lyft. He turned down MBB...

Recently realized I have dyslexia and everything I struggled with in school suddenly makes sense. Obviously I have been able to cope pretty well, but which roles/careers are best suited to people with the neurological difference?
Hello! I have a third round interview that will be split in 2 parts: part 1 will be focused on collaboration and working styles, while part 2 will be focused on cross functional teamwork, problem definition, and solutions.
Anyone have an idea of what kind of questions I could expect? Could these be situational questions and/or mini case interviews?
My SO and I are planning to have a kid. I didn’t realize how much this would affect me… I knew he has type 1 diabetes, but I didn’t know he had it before he was 11. We went to a doctor today and were told that the father having developed symptoms before 11 doubles the chance of our kid being diabetic. Call me out but I’m scared tbh because I know managing diabetes is not easy. Is it mean that I’m afraid of this? Has anyone else gone through a similar experience and found ways to cope?
21 mo son used to sleep to at least 6 regularly and now he’s up by 5-5:30 kicking his crib and waking us up. His bed time hasn’t changed. Considering sleep consultant. Any insight here? 🤕 Pleaseee
Anyone working at Strategy/Management Consulting functions at Accenture? I am looking to find some details about a consultant role and possibly an internal referral to that position?
Ladies we have ALL been Jackie Weaver haven’t we...? I’m obsessed with this viral video from England 😂
Has anyone had a senior executive offer mentor but felt it was more of a demotion?
My role is being redefined since the company is restructuring. The title itself sounds less than. Then he said "....keep things running and in order. If it we had an office it would be like ordering for the kitchen" not sure if he meant to say it that way.
Mentor is highly respected. Most times I feel in sync but there are a few times I feel wtf.
What’s it like living in NYC?
I want to move to a network agency.
I'm a mid-weight strategist.
What is expected of a mid-weight at Ogilvy (for example)?
Recently, I had the taste of industry life. Cool office, sweet benefits, less stress/fewer hours...then the final offer came in and it was just a 4% raise.
Looks like leaving PA will take awhile :(
