I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics. I want to join Big4 ( as SA -DS) so I can learn what's new in the industry and see if I can contribute to white papers. Am I too naive? 🤔 I just read so many negative comments about Big4 and really got me thinking....
How would you compare (sort in an order) the B4 Management Consulting US practice in India. Also include the reason/criteria for picking your order?
I’m starting as a Manager at one of the big 4 in 3 weeks. I left my tenure track job 4 yrs ago so I’m accustomed to non-academic work but still intimidated. Advice? Will I succeed this first year?
Fish who switched from Big 4 to MBB was it worth it (hours vs pay, experiences, exit ops, etc)?
I’m seeing a lot of job req’s for Bain’s Advanced Analytics Group nationwide: does this group operate like a centralized Analytics COE to onsite strategy teams? (I.e. Consultants advise executives/leads on An analytics roadmap, and AAG come in and implement, rather than go with a Big 4 / Indian IT shop?) Thanks guys.
Please be kind, genuinely looking for help. Started my Grad School journey and really want an idea of the quality of school I can realistically aim for. My profile: M / 27 / AA 3.1 GPA Frm a State university 6 YOE (3 in Big 4 Consulting) Active in community Prez of a few orgs Frm Chicago 100% open to relocate 1st practice GRE: 304 (151- V / 153 Q) Looking to pursue a tech mgmt concentration.
Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
Any experienced senior managers that have moved between Big 4 firms? Can you speak towards your experience, any struggles, and opportunities in terms of partner promotion? Frankly, EY path to partner seems to be too clouded (long pipeline, no clear direction/path, uncertainty on promotion cycles, etc.) at the moment and I would like to visit all options. Appreciate the input.
Has anyone gone from tax to fp&a? What did you have to do to get an interview? Did you need to learn any new skill? What level should I aim for if I’m a B4 1st yr senior?
Aside from B4, MBB, FAANG what other companies still sponsoring given this environment? Girlfriend is international and has T20 legal/business education, international legal/MBB/VC experience. Cont.
Accepted an offer at another Big 4. Don’t expect issues but wait to resign until background check clears?
How does base compensation vary across the accounting advisory roles in big 4? PWC CMAAS, EY FAAS, KPMG AAS, DT advisory. Specifically for senior managers.
I’ve always been so assured that B4 and partnership were ultimately what my career needed to be, but now the allure of staying in mgmt consulting is slowly becoming less attractive and that I need to start considering these bigger tech companies. Has anyone had similar realizations and finally made the move to FAANG with no regrets?

Received an offer for a BizOps Manager role at Instacart for 108K base + 150RSU over 4 years. Previous big 4 consulting experience & smaller tech startup experience - 4.5YOE total. Current base is higher but lower equity potential. Any Thoughts?
A couple questions for the turnaround consulting fishes: 1. Is FP&A experience valuable for restructuring/turnaround consulting? I’m a CPA with experience in Big 4 FDD and a short stint in IB. Total work experience is a little over 2 years. I recently joined a RE company as a Sr FA in FP&A where I expect that I’ll be mostly doing budgeting & forecasting work. 2. If my goal is turnaround consulting, what should I focus on right now to best position myself? I appreciate any insights/guidance.
