My friend has worked in a big 4 firm in India in a mid-senior role. He is now in Canada and has been working in an industry role. He wants to get back to consulting. Apparently big4’s view Indian...
See posts on here and on Reddit about people with horrible WLB. All my other friends in B4 are drowning in work. 6 months in... nothing too bad and everyone’s super respectful of my time. Am I in for a rude awakening at some point lol?
Jesus fucking Christ... why do certain managers in Big 4 need to be passive aggressive assholes #pissed
I've been following posts on people's reactions to India and Indians on this blog. I'm of Indian descent and raised in the West. Do I have a risk of being stereotyped as "Indian" if I try to join B4?
Is there a place I can go to get my tsa pre check number? I left another big 4 for Deloitte and was immediately dismissed and didn’t have time to gather that info
Can anyone explain the manager contract at Deloitte (i.e. can I not work at another big 4 or previous client without approval)?
MBB strategy, Big 4 Implementation 👍
Big 4 don’t care about your dreams and hopes :)
Wow PwC, sure you know where to share your expertise on the riots. Even during channel surfing, can't escape B4 influence.
When did it hit you that working in the Big 4 is a dirty political game? That everyone smiles in your face but they would all put a knife in your back at any given moment if expedient for them?
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
I thought that too of some of the middle eastern and Caribbean island managers I worked with on a job once, but they turned out to be the most supportive and inquisitive. But I feel ya, sometimes you can sense if they'll be hostile toward you. But I don't give af at this point. In the end, they're still professionals working for Big 4 and probably won't dare say anything to you about it, even if it does bother them. Way I see it, ignorant people like that don't go very far working in our industry.
Anyone aware of open house hosted by the big 4's in the Chicago and Nyc area? Possibly even the time frame of when it happens?
Side hustle/independent consulting gig while on the bench? Hi fish, are you taking small consulting gigs on the side? I used to work at big 4 and now in fintech startup, there’s a need for SMEs here.
Thoughts on moving to a boutique from B4 for 20% pay bump? Everyone I've interviewed with seem nice and would be cool to work with, but the lack of some sort of organized structure scares me.
Question for B4 equity partners or Accenture MDs - what percentage of the total parters/MDs are desis?
Anyone do software asset management/licensing work? Would be interested in leaving Big 4 for FAANG/industry but feel as though industry won’t pay much. Anyone care to share their experience?
Which areas pays more than Big 4. Techo/Functional Background. SM here. I should have known but can’t seem to find. All I can think is another Big 4 :(
What’s the average pay/total comp in biotech /pharma at the director level, after 7 years of boutique life sciences relevant experience?
Charged $11,000 for a urine test. Insurance says they'll appeal to make it in-network @20%. Lab says "they ran quantitative tests." Bitch, this isn't an audited financial statement. It's pee!
Been trying to figure out why a lot of agencies & other senior creatives are not interested in having people “of a certain age” come in at maybe a level below where they should be. For example,￼ I’m almost 30 years in. ECD at most agencies, won all the requisite awards, led departments, could be a CCO at a smaller or “rebuilding” shop. Started/sold out of my own agency awhile back. Etc etc.. In other words I am FAR more experienced and qualified for a “just” a CD job BUT.... (Cont)

Just received email from PwC FDD (NYC) that they would like to extend me an offer and will be discussing details Friday or Monday (coming from S3 audit midtier to S1 at PwC). Any insight into the group, culture, target salary/sign-on? Thanks in adv.
Been seeing us hammered in here lately. What’s the scoop on BCW outside of the agency? Would genuinely like to know what people think.
I won a major award within my division. Is that something that should go on LinkedIn, or is it like seeing “fattest fat guy in Minnesota”?
Without access to a physical library of books, I find it hard for my students to try out/sample different books they might like. In the past, I've found that part of the process is touching the covers and flipping through some pages. What's the best way to get them interested in books while learning remotely?
Hi Fishes I want to share very bad experience I had at Mastercard I was given offer by Mastercard in month of Dec The hike was less but looking at brand & other perks I accepted the offer & was looking forward to joining them.I got few offers & I went back to them for sole purpose of renegotiating CTC, to have a industry standard hike. They didn't reverted back for 2-3 days & just dropped a mail that they are revoking initial offer as well on grounds that they didn't like i gave other interview
How do taxes work for a property that was bought for 75k and selling for 270k. Bought about 20 years ago.
Hi Fishes, I have received the letter of intent from Wipro and it's mentioned - 'You will be designated as Senior Software Engineer under the WSM General Stream and will form a part of the Career Band B1 in the organization.' Just wanted to know what 'WSM General stream' and 'Career Band B1' mean?
Hi there! So I am a remote contractor for a company, I have been with the company for the last year. When I got brought on, they said it was an extension with hire at the end. But now the said, they’re staying with contractors only and not doing anymore full time. I have been applying for new jobs in remote roles but haven’t gotten lucky. I would really like to stay remote as I love working from home and am potentially relocating. Any advice on openings or opportunities?

This is a common theme considering everything that happened in 2020, but how do you manage when your personal life falls apart? I’m facing the breakup of an engagement and everything feels impossible. I’m still working from home which probably makes it worse. I can’t even get out of bed to feed myself let alone bill 8 hours a day. I’m not very busy right now either, so instead of having a lot of work to distract me I’m desperately trying to piece together smaller projects to add up to 8 hours.
