Best and worst of the Big 4? Serious inquiry, not here to make fun of KPMG or hype one up... And please provide why TIA :)
So apparently PwC is getting the whole week off 7/2-7/6. Does all big 4 start doing this now? Heard EY is having the whole week too. How about Deloitte and kpmg?

Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it. Generally fed up with the long hours, lack of project variety, and the firm’s small practice and lack of focus in my interest area and wondering if things would improve at a boutique that specializes in what I want to do.
I recently got a verbal from B4 firm but have yet to receive the written (going on 2 weeks now). I have recently received another verbal offer from a different B4 firm. How should I negotiate with the original firm for more $? What would you say? This is my first time switching jobs so fairly new.
Important question about switching to another B4. What happens to all your previous comments and posts? Do they stay the old firm or change to the new firms name?
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
Hi 🐠 - does anyone know about Blackstone Tech & Innovations team (BXTI working with Real Estate / PE)? Is the work interesting / tech strategy, or more boring back office IT work? Would it be a step down or up from Tech Consulting at Big 4? Blackstone
How much $$ are firms are willing to pay for a consultant with 3 YOE? It seems like a lot of firms are on a craze to hire and poach talent. Trying to judge how much I can negotiate with a lateral move (Big 4), and whether it's worth leaving my very comfortable environment right now. Would appreciate your input - thanks in advance!
It seems like a lot of people, at least on FB, jump from big 4 to big 4. Is the grass really greener? Doesn't seem that common within MBB.
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
When is it best to leave big 4 Investment/Financial Services tax in terms of years/level?

A1 at PWC in HCOL in CA, how much is the salary?
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
i have filed my h1b extension. I have received the receipt number nut I cannot see the status on uscis site. also can I travel out of country ?
Hey guys. Really discouraged on my journey in big 4. I feel like I am so stupid. I am on a big team and where communication is not great, my client is complex as they’re FS. I didn’t want to do FS for that very reason as Im not interested. Im lacking in terms of knowing the business and technically too. I had been on path on doing good but now its way below that. Im sad and lost maybe I am not in a service line for me as Im in IT AUDIT. I wish I was smart enough feel like Im gonna be put on PIP
Anyone here from MBB in Toronto willing to connect. Moving to Canada for personal reasons and would love to hear more about the industry and practice
Working til 11pm....not for the client but for my wife (her resume) who’s applying for a new job. Selfless I know. Never mind that she’ll double her salary and open up a path to get out of the grind.

As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person

Any GSAP alum that returned to the firm for 2 years and then left? If so, where did you go and how did you navigate there? Mostly interested to see how folks were able to leverage their MBA networks to spring back to another opportunity 2-3 years later at manager level. Did anyone use their previous internship to secure an opportunity at that company?
I’ve gone clientside as a WOC. One of the areas the lead agency is scored by is diversity.. I am infuriated that they’ve hired EVEN MORE white guys in leadership roles.
How bad are D layoffs in Canada? US firm seems nuts but not so much here from where I'm standing..
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
