Everyone talks about career suicide if you leave big 4 too soon, but shouldn’t overall life satisfaction be more important?
Do Big 4 give more time to settle down in the new job compared to a mid size? Does it work the same way when people are asked to improve before the firing i.e, big 4 gives more time to improve?
Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
Looking for some insight on a Business Value Services Consultant role at Salesforce. I have 5 YOE doing SAP implementations for multiple clients at B4 and am very well versed in supply chain processes/integrations. Anybody know what the role is like or what the pay might look like?
At the big 4, why is cyber security usually in risk advisory/assurance and not in consulting?
How can I learn more about the work and day to day expectations of FDD Advisory? Looking for resources to educate myself in the service line as well as advice. I’m an S1 in audit in the PNW at a Top 15 firm but looking to move to NYC and make a switch to FDD either to Big 4 or another large firm by the end of the year
Which department in a NYC B4 would you say have the least busy season? I’m a very anxious person and don’t even know if I can work in a B4
I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?
MBB have such a quicker path to partner than B4. Is it because the pace is so intense you have to learn quicker?
Boutique consulting firm vs Big 4, thinking of making the switch to get more structured support and learning... any thoughts? Attrition is rlly high at my firm and project deadlines have been delayed due to resource issues
Would it be a bad move to leave B4 FDD for somewhere like A&M or HL or Riveron as a soon to be A2? I’m being recruited and their practice seems to be growing like crazy so I see it as being a good opportunity to ride the growth and get paid more in the meantime. Any advice?
Does your law firm / company / employer have adequate measures to deal with mental health issues of employees?
Thoughts on transferring from Deloitte to MBB? Should I do it? Am I crazy? Ladies, advise please.
Does anyone know any TAS case interview example available online to prepare ahead of interview?
Doing the writing assignment for Lyft operations interview, I feel like I’m over thinking this. Any tips?
Moms out there wfh with a nanny that have an infant any suggestions for them to keep entertained? Mine is 10 months and I need some ideas for sensory play or just new fun activities for them
What's the worst industry to work in, and why?
Wrapping up maternity leave and negotiating start and end times with the nanny. What time do your nannies come over and how late do they stay? Both husband and I are consultants and our hours are so unpredictable. Nanny can come 8 hours a day. We are thinking 9-5 and then based on our day, one of us takes care of the baby for another two hours and do the bath/bed time around 7ish.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Feeling a bit down today because I’ve been applying, interviewing and getting several rejections. Nothing seems to be working out … I know I’m close but it does not make the rejections any easier. How do you cope? What’s the longest you’ve been searching for? Trying to stay positive & encouraged. TIA. PS I’m currently employed just looking to do more impactful & fulfilling work.
Have u folks seen any uptick in hiring , want to move on from travel grind and take up local tech gigs .. thanks
Which meme coin are you all gambling on next? How many millions or billions are you buying? I used to fantasize about traveling somewhere for work and never getting back on the airplane but now that my daydreaming has had to stay in my 'home office' this is all I have...
So I got an offer to do a Dphil program in machine learning from a top UK school, I also got an MBA offer here in the US. I am reading articles about how much AI researchers are making and I am pretty mindblown so I think I will choose it over the MBA. I hope I'm not completely blowing it.
Private school worth it? I think of it as insurance. Less chance your kid is a screw up, sets the baseline of what school he/she gets into higher. makes sure they don’t get lost in the weeds with low student teacher ratio. Anyone else done extensive research or has practical life experiences with this?
In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
Which is better overall for travel and dining perks? Chase Sapphire preferred or American Express?
https://joinfishbowl.com/post_0um71i A lot of debate here and we’ve gotten a lot of “ranges.” Anybody have actual insight on the avg/median comp Principal/MD/Partner or how the comp model actually translates to numbers? Several of my peers would love to have a clearer sense of this salary trajectory in figuring out next steps.
Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders. I made a few other mistakes and was rolled off by my manager (SM) b/c I sucked and it was a higher burn engagement he needed a stronger BA. Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.
I have a chronic illness and WFH has saved my career. There is no way I would have been able to commute to and work in an office consistently. Now, none of my coworkers even know I’m sick.
