Anyone working for a Big 4 Salesforce practice in Germany willing to have a chat/give a referral?
1 YOE B4 as SA. what are my options?
Potentially silly questions but when people generally say that you have to be at MBB to make the jump to PE, are these folks doing PE type work like diligence or something relevant or are they doing more broad type of consulting and getting into PE because they have the MBB brand?
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Is the CVA or ABV valued by big 4 at all?
What is the difference between getting life sciences consulting expertise at a life sciences boutique firm vs at bigger generalist firms (MBB/big 4)? How are the projects different and what type of experience do u gain?
Had a call with an MBB recruiter a week back, he said he would send me some links to apply but didnt hear back yet. Do I follow up?
Out of the big 4, which has the biggest share in m&a transaction services in the SF-bay area?
Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
Do you think it’s reasonable to decline a job offer right now to another B4 due to market conditions and the pandemic?
Anyone in Big 4 who is in AUP (unclaimed property)? I’d like to focus on it (best WLB I’ve seen so far) and jump firms. Have almost 2yrs AUP exp (more in tax). Can anyone share insights on your teams?
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
B4 or T2 consultants that got into H/S, what part of your application do you think really set you apart?
Planning to apply to schools in Fall ‘21, but I know I want to work at some sort of healthcare startup post-mba focused on product and business growth. I know this is extremely vague, but I’d really appreciate any guidance as to where I can get started to explore career opportunities that fall in this realm. TIA.
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

Hey McK folks, if I already have an interview lined up, how much does the Imbellus game matter? Is it something I can prepare for?
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Got an offer but had in-persons at another firm I️ want more...not sure if they want me back thought because I️ haven’t heard anything for a few days. How do I️ play this?
What would you do if your manager keeps lashing out at you and always apologizing later? The Director tells me to bare with him because he suffers from PTSD from active duty. I think the company doesn’t want to let him go to be carefully legally but I can’t take it anymore. I’ve saved two emails of his apologies and asked for a project transfer. Nothing
Any other teachers having to be in busy work classes these next two weeks rather than planning your lessons -Canvas-Google Classroom and everything else we need to do before students arrive?
Anyone ever progress to the “offer eligible” phase of the hiring process at Slalom and not receive an offer?
Are there any practice tests available for the Databricks Spark cert that people would recommend? I’m looking for something similar to Whiz Labs as I find that the most helpful for studying.
Does anyone know what the range is on base and bonus for Exec Director in tech at JPMorgan? I’m coming from a peer bank and trying not to sell myself short. Any help greatly appreciated!
Hey everyone! I have been working at a small firm for 10 years. Specifically, work comp, PI, and social security. I often feel like I don't get enough money for everything I do. Anyone else feel this way? I do paralegal work, legal assistant work, legal billing, accounts receivable, etc. for three Attorney's. We do Claimant work and Defense.
Is going to a small firm actually worth it for WLB or is it just taking a pay cut to have substantially the same hours/stress levels? Considering a move to a smaller firm for mental health but not sure if it’ll end up being more of the same. Are there things to look for when looking into smaller firms?
So there are people on my team who are fully dedicated to project management. But they send emails with typos and schedule meetings at the wrong time. Like wth!
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
I got my h1b extension approved recently, however my wife's h4 is still in progress. Can I switch employers while her h4 is pending?
Considering move from B4 to ACN, with sales experience and managing team of 10+ team under belt. Expect M Or SM at ACN?
