I joined BT as an experienced hire from a local firm. Honestly, BT has been very good to me. By and large, I like the people I work with. Their response to the pandemic has been pretty good. I suspect this is common in public accounting, but we’ve had turnover and there’s the feeling our jobs are understaffed.


It’s good. Compared to Big 4 you get as much responsibility as you want as early on in your career as you want. Only down side is, there is a ceiling to how fast you can get promoted. For example, I interned and that year of experience didn’t “count” even though I never had any lag time between interning and starting full time. So I’m on my 3rd busy season and taking on the same responsibility as my peers who started at the same time as me but in a “full time” position and were promoted to senior this year.. just by a technicality I did not get that same promotion because I wasn’t eligible. All in all though, it’s a more personal feel, lots of interaction with the clients and tons of opportunity. Many things though are going to be the same. It’s still public accounting.


Former BT and now BDO ... it really depends on the team and the office in my opinion. I do miss the people and the health benefit

What location were you in?

Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)

MBB experienced hires, how long did it take you to make the switch (from start of networking to final offer)? How long did your interview prep take you?


I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.


Booking travel to India. How soon can the PCR test results be available? Is it with reference to our arrival time in India?


What are your thoughts on DSTL etf? Expense ratio is high but with the current gov leaning towards green energy, is it a good choice?

Have BCG interviews coming up. Would love to practice cases with anyone else in a similar position


If WFH stays after vaccine(maybe split 50/50 with office and WFH) do you think that will have some major impacts on our economy?  our economy is based off of people spending money not saving. I think of all the lunch, coffee, happy hour, dry cleaning etc spending we used to do.

Moms, my baby has started to roll over. He rolls from back to stomach in his sleep and starts crying. I know this is a phase but should I worry about him getting stuck? He is in a sleep sack. Thank you!


How is the salesforce practice at EY GDS? Currently working in big4. Want to understand about ~ number of salesforce practitioners, growth opportunities, yearly hike, culture, etc.


I have a child who has been identified as a selective mute. Anyone have experience with this?


For those who have switched big 4 firms, what was your reason?

This might be a dumb question but are you allowed to disclose who your clients are in an interview? E.g., if you worked on matters for a Fortune 500, can you name that company in your interview?


When are MBB bonuses paid typically?

Would anyone that has moved from Big 4 to MBB be willing to chat for 15-30 minutes? I’m hitting a point where I am enjoying consulting (advisory) but I’m not sure the idea of narrowing in on a specific industry and exact skillset appeals to me. Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).
