Moved to BDO from PwC about 4 months ago. The biggest difference so far is limited technology. BDO is years behind PwC in terms of technology, however , in terms of culture , I love BDO ( maybe is just the people i work with )

Do you think working in IB would be worth it for someone that isn’t head over heels about IB? I think I would enjoy the work (currently big 4 FDD, with a bit of valuations mixed in), but seeing my roommate deteriorate physically, mentally, socially over the past 3 years makes it hard to want that same job. It is not as glamorous as I thought it was while I was in university.

I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms.

Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!

Need some advice/perspective… I’m getting promoted and will be at $185k TC at a B4 firm. All internal projects, no travel, WFH 99% of the time, and in a hot tech field. It all sounds great but I hate the projects I’m on and I dislike our leadership. I’ve submitted over 70 apps and haven’t had much success outside of 2-3 interviews that ultimately did not work out. Do I continue to look or do I shut up and be grateful for what I have?
