Are you coming from FDD or audit?

FDD 2 years audit 2 years at same firm.

Heavily biased towards Big 4, sometimes RSM and GT. Lower mid market like BDO are deemed last resort only it seems.

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.


I’m applying this year for MBA (Fall 2021 start), but really want to shoot my shot for MBB before that, BCG specifically, because I can’t deal with all the EY BS anymore. Say I was actually able to get an offer, would I be blacklisted from BCG if I left for an MBA 6 months after being hired?
