Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?
If I was going to make a transition to another firm (possibly Tier 2 or Big 4), when would be an appropriate time to do so? I have about 9 months of experience with IBM thus far. Wait 2 years? Less?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
A recruiter reached out from another big 4 expressing interest in me joining one of their practices that i am interested in. They asked if i had spoken to my current partner about internally
My friend has accepted the offer letter for a big 4 But doesn’t want to join for multiple reasons. What should be her next steps? Suggestions?
If I got offered a position at a big 4 firm for indirect tax. What do you think the appropriate counter offer would be? Do you think they would accept my counter?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
Would you move from D to other Big 4 with only 20k raise (115 -> 135k)? Assuming you need to restart GC process from scratch a year after joining
Got an offer to move to another B4 strategy practice with a title & pay bump (15%). However, most of the work is in an industry I hated working in (financial services). Is it worth making the jump for a year if the ultimate goal is FAANG?
Managers and above, what was your base salary increase when jumping from one B4 to another?
Considering switching from B4 audit to FDD in either B4 or Houlihan Lokey. Spoke with someone at PWC who said they usually do 50-60 hour workweeks. Anyone at HL by any chance that can tel me about their work schedule and culture?
Is Deloitte the only Big 4 to do one promotion a year? If you miss your chance , you have to wait a year instead of the 6 months at other firms?
Got an offer from FANG in Jan, currently in Big 4. H-1B Visa transfer to new employer is taking longer than planned due to RFE and additional details required. Employer planning to withdraw the offer.
I have been offered a 25 percent hike at a big 4 but have another offer with 40 percent hike in a Boutiqe firm. I asked the HR of the big 4 if she could adjust since I have a 40 percent hike letter. She said she’ll check. She hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Should I contact her? Currently working at one of the Big 4.
Stupid question, want to get into political risk consultant, is that a thing outside of PwC in the big 4? If so what qualifications do you need and what's more utilized, risk analysis or poli sci?
Has anyone recently gotten their H1B visa stamping done in Mumbai using Dropbox. If yes, what was the processing time and the overall experience? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
I found this article and wondered what people here thought about it. It deals with teacher licensing tests. Among other things, it presents the case for a positive correlation between performance on a licensing test and performance in the classroom. It also argues there is an outsized number of teachers (over 50%) that don’t pass the licensing test on the first try. Any newer teachers out there who can weigh in on their teacher prep program and the licensing test experience? https://www.nctq.org/publications/Driven-by-Data:-Using-Licensure-Tests-to-Build-a-Strong,-Diverse-Teacher-Workforce/

Any good book recommendations on psychology?
Hi Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase upto 13 LPA? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.

Salary range for manager at Deloitte in Chicago?
I am on a 4 week vacation overseas to get married and just accepted an offer at a small city based consulting firm. I have 3 weeks left of my vacation. Can I give my 2 week notice next week and use the rest of my vacation time? Or do I need to wait until I return to Canada and work 2 weeks before leaving. I'm leaving on good terms, just exhausted of the work and looking to diversify my experience.
