Thoughts on internal audit at big 4?
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company

Are there any Big 4 or middle market firms that have national tax/policy (WNTS, NTS, etc.) practices that won’t work you to death?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
Thoughts on Slalom v Big 4?
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
I am looking for consulting companies specialize in the life sciences industry. I am interested to know the ones other than big 4/IBM/ Accenture. My experience is mostly in digital transformation / analytics/ AI. Anyone would give me a referral.

I work at a Tier 2 strategy house. Whenever headhunters contact me, it is either for another tier 2, a boutique, or occasionally a tier 1, but never a big 4. Anyone else experience this? Why?
Which Big 4 is the best to be at regarding work culture and benefits? Especially during these tough times.
Deloitte is the only company of the big 4 to have a true management consulting shop. The others have advisory shops that they call consulting to be Kool. #BigD
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Need credit card advice - what would you recommend if I don’t plan on using my points to travel and most of my spending is on groceries, going out to bars and restaurants, and online shopping? Currently use the Uber card which has significantly declined in value since I got it. Thank you!
How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise. I am used to quick promos and my new company is hiring someone with equal product exp to a more senior role than me, likely due to his 3 more yrs of overall experience. I am having my first child in the next few months and I think it would be good for me to learn some patience in my career growth and just enjoy my current role. I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA
Accidentally gave the wrong insurance information and was told there'd be a $1000 deductible. I can't stop thinking about how millions of Americans can't have access to healthcare because of this 😓
Should be getting a raise by the end of this month, I am definitely being underpaid, do I bring this up before or after I find out how much my raise is?

So today I walked into the client site and realized I left my laptop at home. Mind you my commute is around 60min one way. Let's just say, I've been contemplating on life since 8:45AM.
At my client site 5days a week (gps) , and home office has little to no consulting presence. Rolling off around August and looking for a supply chain related project (commercial). Advice!
Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?

What sort of yearly salary increase are you guys getting? Is it normal to expect merit (performance) + cost of living/inflation? I got 1.5% and don’t know how to feel about that..
Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
I just found out from my gyno that I may have difficulties with pregnancy. Now rethinking all my life decisions and seriously considering a 9-5 where I’ll be able to reasonably raise my...
What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
