Anyone go from BAH to EY or vice versa? Trying to compare and determine if making the jump to EY would be a smart career move or more headache than its worth (primarily terrible work/life balance)

I work hard during my 40ish hours but I don’t have crazy hours in Fed at all. I really like EY. I’ve been to a bunch of firms doing Fed work and I believe this is the place for me. I’m a manager for context


Second all of this

Forget EY. Go to GT. Better WLB all around.

I went to EY from BAH but commercial

I think EY is better overall. Benefits and such but the GPS work is just as boring as what I did at BAH. Highly recommend it tho as you can move around a lot easier than BAH too.

I work in HR comms at a hospital corporate office, and wondering if I’m being underpaid. Currently have 4-6 years of experience.

I’m being paid $26.6/hr. Was told in my job search by another hospital that the rate I requested $30-35/hr is only for people with 10-18yrs experience? Legit or bogus?

What is the typical team size a Deloitte Manager leads? I have about a year of experience leading a small team (3-5 people) and am at the Associate level at Booz Allen.

Would I be better suited for Deloitte SC or Manager level? I have 8 YOE total and 3 YOE in consulting. I have plenty of experience managing workstreams, just not a lot of people management. Not afraid of a challenge but also don't want to set myself up for failure if I'd be expected to jump in and manage 50+ person teams...


Came to Guidehouse two months ago and now I regret it. Everyone is trying to jump ship. Two people on my team left and now my manager. Maybe I came to the company too soon.
