Coras is a big player that just won a bunch of the future submarines work. Elysium as well. Downer / Jacobs seem to be more in the Canberra body shop space although branded as engineering/ PM. Definitely a good call avoiding the big 4. A lot of engineers come here and are bitterly disappointed in the work they are doing.

Which is a better Big 4 to join for Business consulting risk- EY or KPMG?

I’m a late 40’s, 3rd year Partner in Big4 who joined as a DEMD after 2 decades in industry. I’m weighing an offer to join another Firm - it’s a straight comp play for 30% higher Comp for a similar role. I realize that the BS is mostly the same at all B4, so I don’t think for a second the grass is greener. But the comp is nice, and I’m not vested enough to lose much money. Did anyone here make a similar jump to another Firm, and in the end, was it a genius move, or did you come to regret it?

Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)

About to finalize negotiations with a big 4. Want to take 2-3 weeks off in between jobs. Is this realistic? Why are people’s experiences negotiating time off in between jobs ?

Thoughts on Masters in Environmental Management programs? UCSB, Yale, etc. I have a non-technical degree (Bachelor of Arts) and have been in management consulting at a Big 4 the last 5 years. I want to pivot my career to do something more meaningful - make a positive impact in the world, rather than continuing to help rich corporations get richer. Thinking that doing a Masters will help arm myself with environmental / sustainability knowledge and a network.

How do the independence rules vary between the big 4 related to non-audit employees owning stock? I’ve heard EY takes the most conservative stance. I know Deloitte consulting is separate and doesn’t have the same restrictions as audit.
