How impacted are summer ‘20 internships for current students? Any cancellations or still moving forward at FAANG, F100, and MBB/B4?
What is work life balance like at Alverez and Marsal? Specifically for transaction advisory/financial due dilligence
How do you go about disclosing it to your partner/team if you’re jumping ship from one b4 to another? Don’t want to burn bridges
boutique vs. big 4 vs. MBB? Pros and cons.
In Tech at D. Over my past 4 projects they seem to really burn us into the ground overwork us. Is that just my bad experience? Other Big 4 have a similar issue?
Anyone from Minneapolis? What’s the average pay outside big 4 for someone who has 4 years of audit experience?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
6 months into consulting and bored of being aligned to only 1 industry. Thinking of switching to a small firm but is there a long term career benefit of staying at a big 4 firm for a couple of years?
What is the expected salary for new hire with 1 yoe from big 4 consulting, analyst Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
Hey Fishes, trying to benchmark my salary here… senior associate, advisory, tier 2 city, big 4, 7 yoe in consulting, although less in the current community. What would be a good range?
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.
Quick scenario: If I have a consulting offer from a different Big 4 that has a start date post-10/15, so that in theory I would not have to submit a 2 weeks notice until post-10/1 (bonus payout date) but I sign the offer pre-9/30, am I obligated (looking for both legal & professional standpoint) to tell PwC because it is with a competitor? This is essentially the exact same group at the other big 4
My coach confirmed that associates at PwC will be promoted after 2 years instead of 3 going forward. Just like the other big 4
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
This pandemic has made me realize I really want to live full time on a lake and work remote from there. What approach would you take to make this happen? Aside from marrying a rich, 70 year old and becoming a trophy wife...
I go back tomorrow after a week's vacation. When is it expected I start catching up on email? Tonight? Tomorrow?
Those of you who have had their companies go from a certain number of days PTO to unlimited PTO, did you actually take more days off after the change or were you pressured to take less? Company and service line would be helpful but not necessary
Ever make sense to switch firms in non-promote years for an almost identical role? If so, under what conditions does it make sense: x% raise, title promotion, culture fit....what's your threshold?

Moving to the DC area, but looking into two different types of programs:1.) Georgetown Flex MBA 2.) MPH Johns Hopkins. I’m working a remote commercial position in pharma, but am wondering if any of two programs will help me in securing a role in a tier 2 consulting firm? In the long-term would like to stay in pharma
Experienced hire here who came in a level to low. I've been rolled off of 3 projects each after 6 months because I don't "look friendly and engaged". Work delivered no problem. Kinda double bitter
Anybody did the apics certification in logistics ? I have the choose between the cslp and cscp but not sure which one I should be doing
For moms in California - can anyone explain to me how the FMLA/Paid Leave works in coordination with EY’s sixteen weeks? It seems that all the new moms take 6 months and I’m trying to figure out how that works if we’re only given 16 weeks. My husband and I are currently waiting for an adoption placement so I have no idea when I’ll need to use it, but I’m hoping it’s sometime soon :) Since I’m not actually pregnant, asking these questions feels weird, but I keep reminding myself it’s okay. TIA!
I’m looking into exiting consulting and moving into product management. Picked up a few books to read. Would a PM certification provide a lot of value? Any other tips are appreciated! Thank you.
Does Graduation must to apply for work visa in any country? Or someone can apply if he has completed normal Institute course that is not affiliated with any university. Pls suggest.

Hey friends - I’m currently on a brief medical leave (~1 month) and my management has been contacting me quite regularly by phone and email without notice for different documentation and admin processes relating to the leave. It’s basically taking up as much time as my regular work. Not sure what is reasonable here as I would really like to focus on healing and just deal with it when I’m back…isn’t that the point? What are my rights here?
Does Marketing & Sales at McKinsey & Company have its own culture? Especially in the New York office?
Ladies I have been reflecting on something that's been bothering me a lot. Women are not getting promoted to manager fast enough. I am up for promotion this year and it feels hard to get your name out
