How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
Not sure where to put this, but...how much is the max you spend on a single wine bottle at dinner when expensing dinner on a regular project working for big 4?
Anyone work for a company that went public? What was you’re experience like and how does it compare to B4 in terms of hours, learning, etc.? Did you feel like it opened up opportunities after the fact?

Looking to switch to EY cyber as a senior consultant. How many months of big 4 cyber experience post Masters is encouraged/required for the role?
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
I’m a senior in advisory at a B4 firm. I’m aiming for partner, but secretly would like to be part of firm leadership. Is there anything I should do differently on my way up the ladder?
