How much are the hourly rates for the seasonal contractors at the B4 firms? Especially in tax. Thanks
Interviewed at Big 4. Never discussed compensation, however when i filled out the online app I put a high but ‘safe’ number. They extended an offer with my original amount,is it too late to negotiate?
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
Trying for a job in the big 4 as a senior associate. No luck yet. Any suggestions 🐠. Close to 5 years experience and a Masters Degree. Looking for jobs in Data & Analytics - DW & BI.
What made you decide to quit or resign from the big 4? I am super tired already and don't think I can perform well anymore. Seriously considering leaving without any job prospect as I can't - cont'd
I passed my CPA exams, waiting for my license now, will take about 4-5 months. Should I look for a new job now or wait for my license, aiming for B4 audit senior.
Any partners who switched from B4 to MBB, if so what was your experience and how was the transition? Would you do it again?
Is a tie necessary for a virtual interview with big 4 or will a shirt and jacket suffice?
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
How does Stax consulting compare to Big 4 M&A strategy diligence and value creation groups? Regarding work, reputation, etc
My coach confirmed that associates at PwC will be promoted after 2 years instead of 3 going forward. Just like the other big 4
What are some benefits of mid-tier firms vs the big 4. Is there actually a thing as work-life balance? Do hours really get capped at 55 during busy season? Do the external opportunities get worse without the big 4 name recognition?

Thoughts on internal audit at big 4?
How easy is it to be hired in MCK / BCG as a principal, when you have been a top level Director at B4? Can someone refer?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
At M level, should I be expecting really technical interviews in SAP Finance space? Just had my first interview in years and the interviewer was hellbent on technicalities which I haven't had to deal with in years and so couldnt recall, but things that are easily searchable on the internet. Just a matter of remembering specifics.. Seemed unecessary to me, but I'm pretty sure that left a bad impression.
In case this helps anyone in here who doesn’t already know. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. https://nypost.com/2020/04/03/how-hungry-nyc-residents-can-get-free-meals-amid-coronavirus/
When you start a new project 2 time zones away and forget to check the weather... to find out it will be snowing and you did NOT bring a coat. Safe to say I'll never forget to check again.
I asked a vice chair in my group to talk informally about working remotely going forward (we already are remote now and was largely flexible pre covid) and also a possible pay bump. This is my first salary/work benefit negotiation and I’m so nervous I might just unhire myself before we actually get to talk 😭😭
Those of you who have had their companies go from a certain number of days PTO to unlimited PTO, did you actually take more days off after the change or were you pressured to take less? Company and service line would be helpful but not necessary
Is it bad that I’m going on vacation with my family in March and not telling the partner I work under that I’m doing so? Im a tax manager and my busiest time is Jan-March 15th, so I’m going to work by the pool/at night. I have Teams on my phone so I can stay green all day I think.
It’s infuriating when the project manager who asked you to create a team SharePoint site for document management consistently asks you to email them documents... that are on the SharePoint site
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?
Hi guys! I recently interviewed for a PM role (L6) at Amazon and was inclined (🙌🏾) however the role was filled. The recruiter told me that HM has a headcount. What does this mean?
Any PWC folks willing to connect in the Financial services practice? Relocating to Atlanta and seeking new consulting opportunities.
How do you guys deal with frequent brain fog? Ive always had it a bit on and off but lately I've felt almost lost in some work meetings because I can't retain anything. I don't smoke weed, I rarely take low dose of anxiety medicine, drink socially and I'm pretty healthy on most fronts but I did have COVID almost a year ago. What else could cause this?
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
