How do I become an MBB employee? Is it possible to gain experience at big 4+ACN and then get referred in??
Just curious, what are all the B4 policies on the vaccine and how they are accommodating for personnel WFH?
Wanted to get thoughts on if there was a service line in the Big 4 world that has a work/life balance that doesn't exceed 45 hours of work per week? Or is that blasphemy?
Pros and cons of big 4 TAS vs working for firms like D&P, A&M, and FTI? Also any others I happen to be missing
Deloitte is giving mid-year hikes. Is this also happening at other consulting firms, big 4? EY PWC KPMG Accenture
Those working in consulting at big 4..are you constantly seeing yourself working 50+hrs during Covid and just being told to keep doing it? To what extent can we push back? Just because we are home doesn’t mean we don’t have family obligations as well... expectations up front are never communicated so I don’t find out I’ll be working long until I start a new client....meanwhile many colleagues are working 40hrs consistently but pay is same.... not a complainer but something’s gotta give
Looking for a new job. I am coming from on of the Big 4 as a Management Consultant. Do you guys use any search tools/engines or do you directly go to companies’ websites and apply?
I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?
Anybody have experience in working at Gartner’s research advisory group (not consulting).. I am in the finance transformation space and they are building out finance research arm.. after 15 years in big 4 consulting I am just burned out and working on the corporate side doesn’t seem appealing.. need something with better wlb but intellectually stimulating.. just curious if anyone has any experience w the group in terms of culture and exit opps. Gartner
Does anyone do IT audit work at Protiviti? Is the work life balance actually better than B4?
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
I am terrible at negotiating salary because I often undervalue myself. Looking for thoughts on base comp ranges for the following: - 12 YOE (mostly in industry) - ETL, analytics, and BI heavy experience (SQL) - Technical background but a lot of business/ops team interaction as well - Leaving B4 consulting to go back to industry - Prefer Senior IC role, but overseeing 1 - 3 jr analysts ok - Live in a LCOL state - 5+ years remote working experience - fintech, martech exp - some python/r
Thoughts on moving from Big 4 audit to Financial Advisory? Pay jump would be about 50%, but the new firm is small. $25M in revenue and new office in my city - I feel like there is a good amount of risk. I’m a S1 about to be a S2

Promotion came thru this week. For the first time, asked my driver to stop at the gas station so I can get a beer. His response “typically only men headed home to their wives request this, good week?"
Can you expense $120 for two months phone bills together even though one month went over $60 and the other didn’t ?
Anybody here in cyber security transformation? Or a similar technology transformation / strategy type role? I am just wondering more on what to expect in my next role, and if I will be picking up some useful knowledge or skills — or if I’ll be back to doing PMO for more money. Thanks in advance.
Anyone who’s interviewed with another firm before leaving the previous company - what was your experience?
I don't know about you, but we are barred from our campus and don't have access to our rooms. What's something that you wish you would have remembered to bring home with you from your classroom?
Staying at an established middle market firm where realistic partner track is about 10 -12 years vs moving to big4 or MBB. Pros & cons of both?
Hey all, I seriously can’t find any Philadelphia-based Big 4 management consultant job openings other than a few senior manager or higher positions. Otherwise, they are all tax audit or tech consulting. Are the analyst/associate/senior management consultant roles titled differently? FYI, I had trouble with this pre-covid. Thank you
I’ve been on PTO since Friday & won’t return until next week. It’s been scheduled for months & was on our project calendar. My OOO response is on. Since 5PM Fri, I’ve received 4 lengthy emails....
S& salary for M1/2/3? And how does the bonus look? Is there a difference in pay across different groups/ verticals ?
Anyone familiar with the Operational Excellence & Transformation department at Truist? They seem to be on a hiring spree. Prior to applying I want to know if it's a good jump from consulting/how they are viewed by other consultants. Currently a SA at a Big 4 with 4 YOE.
This Indian matchmaking show is interesting...love how the first girl is like “my partner needs to fit in my life” 😳🙄😳🙄🤭
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
Interviewed with Apple 6 months back (finished the final round) and did not hear from them (ghosted), the hiring manager sent me a text asking me to chat about more openings. Was I "friend-zoned" last time?
Anyone have any good educational materials for participants in a 401k that you provide education for? Thanks
