Big4 vs BDO
I’m currently working for a Big4 firm and I’m considering an offer from BDO for a base increase of $35k-$65k more. The pay is a lot higher so I want to take it, but I’m worried about taking an offer from a firm with less prestige. Does BDO have a good reputation? How’s the culture and WLB at BDO?

Over the last week I’ve had terrible migraine from work. I’ve been drinking water, working out and trying to take mid-day power naps to give my eyes a break. However, as soon as I’m at my laptop, I start getting pulsing headaches where I’m unable to think. Any advice? Has anyone had something similar happen? Work has been super stressful lately for sure

Going to Tahoe to ski in Feb. I have the option of a 1.5 layover in PHX or 3.5 hours in AUS.

Is 1.5 hours enough in PHX for bags to transfer? I really don’t want my ski equipment to miss the transfer but 3.5 hours seems overkill. My layovers will both be around 5pm local time if that matters.

I accepted a offer from Deloitte USA for a position in their Analytics and Cognitive practice. The BGC is in progress for last 4 weeks and for the last two weeks there are no new updates/requests. How should I interpret this situation? Is this normal now a days for BGC to take this much time? Or are they waiting and watching the recent market downturn and hence holding the hiring? Any inputs and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hey YC bowl, need my weekly talk down from going to law school. Inevitably facing yet another week of mostly enjoying what I do while somewhat tolerating certain aspects of consulting. Not totally unfulfilled not totally unhappy. Decent WLB. Just cannot shake this law school bug. Haven’t been able to for years. Sort of encroaching a point where I’m not sure I’m even headed in my career in terms of developing hard transferable skills. For example, I feel like I don’t have an actual vocation. Lol

Offered job @McDonalds for 90K with a 5K sign on bonus. Currently making 85K. Bonus structure at McDonald’s is 14-30% and a much better WLB. Torn on whether jumping to industry would stagnate my career or if I should look to hop to a different consulting field before joining industry (currently I’m in TP w/interest in strategy consulting). Speaking with a few different companies this week but McDonald’s wants my decision by Wednesday. Offered the job last Friday 9/23. Thoughts?
