Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
Is the CVA or ABV valued by big 4 at all?
What are big firms like MBB / Big 4 doing to keep employees (especially junior level) engaged and motivated during COVID? In your opinion, is it working?
How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
I am a financial services consultant (non-Big 4) with a second round interview at Deloitte (three 45 min interviews back-to-back). I have never interviewed at a Big 4 before. Any advice?
I’m starting at MBB shortly as an associate, laterally from Big 4. Husband & I are trying to decide if we want to buy a house and settle in the city we’re moving to - I am potentially interested in making partner (if possible) but also open if a good exit opportunity comes my way. Exit opps would certainly be in a different location. Anyone have thoughts on ideal length to stay at MBB?
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?
Has anyone had an experience where they switched big 4 and ended up being such a good decision? Trying to get some light
Does Big 4 hires H1-B transfers for the positions that they originally don’t hire someone for who would go through H1-B lottery?
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
Can Big 4 people get their mail sent to their office since they are there most of the time? 😂
How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
How much are the hourly rates for the seasonal contractors at the B4 firms? Especially in tax. Thanks
Facebook vs Google - What are some of the biggest work culture differences btwn the two? Particularly for someone coming from big 4 into tech.
Mid size vs big 4 - which one to choose and why? Pay/work is same, no exit ops in either.
What’s the general experience with leaving B4 going to smaller, local firms? Is it big fish in small pond? Worth it? Hate it?
Haven’t traveled at all in the two years that I’ve been here. Any watch-outs when selecting about travel projects?
Been in consulting for 1.5 year and realized it isn't for me (or at least Accenture and the type of work we do isn't) obviously I know the exit opps will not be as good/limited. Recommendations 🐠
Experience with vestas data analyst interview ?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Foreigners - have you heard about green card interviews? Sounds like they are reinstated from October 1
Im currently at 70K and due for promotion. Is 95K too much to expect when being promoted to Account Supervisor internally? (FYI it’s Pharma)
$155k M1 in MC in High cost of living area - good sales, really high utilization. What should I expect for a raise going into M2?
Do principals also have utilization goals? Can they just choose to bill 0 hours on project and work “for free”?
Hey everyone! IPG Health is thriving with new business wins, and we are hiring in every department! I am a boomerang to the network because honestly the agencies within IPG Health provides great benefits and colleagues. DM if interested!!
Did anyone have a dog prior to joining their MBB, and if so, how did you manage the travel?
Let’s make a Creative Complaints bowl. A bowl dedicated to venting about what the client/account/pm did today to piss us off.
Curious about how many hours plaintiffs litigation attorneys work on average per week. I’m a defense attorney and billable hours don’t make for the best work life balance. Thanks in advance.
I was asked to take on formal supervisor duties without a promotion or raise for at least 1 year. Tips on how to negotiate this?
Is LinkedIn helpful? I only see it as a means to showcase one's experience/education background. Am I missing out on its benefits? Not a lot of big agencies post jobs there (atleast in my city) and the recruiters that do reach out have vague, often marketing-related, job offers.
Going to a wedding with my bff last minute this weekend (her boyfriend couldn't make it last minute). Do I offer to split the hotel and bring a gift?
I have a 401(k) plan that I am being requested pricing on for a local medical group. It's about $2M with 57 participants. What would you guys take as far as compensation goes for a plan of this size?
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
🐠 at North Highland: interacted with a recruiter today, would love to learn more. Anyone who works there, thoughts on culture, prestige, development experience? Thanks in advance!
