What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?
What’s the difference in the types of exit opps between MBB and B4 consultants? Is the gap really as big as people make it or does it mainly come down to networking, relevant skills, and luck?
Got an offer to move to another B4 strategy practice with a title & pay bump (15%). However, most of the work is in an industry I hated working in (financial services). Is it worth making the jump for a year if the ultimate goal is FAANG?
Is Director at PwC equivalent to SM at the other Big 4? If so, why are SM at PwC seemingly paid more than SM at the other Big 4?
Business Tax Services at KPMG vs STS at PwC vs Quantitative Services at EY (Fixed assets, r&d, cost seg, etc). I am looking to make a move. I was wondering is there any growth within the quantitative services team? Is it a boring job? Which Big 4 has stronger Business Tax Services practice?
Hi Ladies, I was impacted by the COVID-19 layoffs a few weeks ago and let go from my job at Deloitte. I have 2 years experience as an IT Auditor with the big 4 and I am in search of a new job. I’m currently residing in Atlanta Any recommendations on where to apply would be greatly appreciated.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
I only been at BIG 4 for a year. I am so miserable because I work at PwC and my team is huge and the busy season is endless. I was thinking of transferring to a different firm because I dont feel like I fit my culture so was thinking of moving to a different firm?
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
Is there an comparison between big 4 titles ?
Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
Any stories about how the independence policies at Big 4 have practically affected your personal finances? Would also love to hear how consulting business is affected by not overlapping audit clients
Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
Out of all the big 4 companies which is the best in terms of a IT work (tech assurance, cyber, ... etc) I know it defers by revenue or number of clients or growth. But any input would be great.
Anyone moved to BizOps in a start-up from Big 4 MC? Seems pointless trying to lateral to MBB/Big 4 strat just to then move on

Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?

After 12+ years in FTE roles both agency and brand side in strategy/brand marketing/social strat roles. Thinking about taking it freelance. But I’ve never done freelance or consulting before - ever. Would love to connect with someone who’s done this (or does it on the side) - would anyone be open to do a Zoom call with me to answer questions/give me advice? As a token of my appreciation, I’d send you a Drizly (or Seamless, DoorDash, or UberEats) gift card so we could make it a happy hour!

Hi folks! I’m currently a PM intern at a big Chicago agency but I’m looking to transfer into strategy. I don’t think I will be getting an offer from my current agency as it seems they are focusing on hiring more senior level management. Is anyone hiring or does anyone have any leads/ someone who could refer me for a junior position? It would be much appreciated as a fresh grad. Thanks!! 🤠

Do people have tips on how to manage ADD/ ADHD and the feeling of restlessness? I have a mild case of ADD and in the last 2 years have found myself becoming increasingly distracted and less productive at work. I work on whatever that’s in front of me for 10 mins and suddenly a new thought/ question pop up in my head and I switch to chasing that down. The work from home situation also made me become less focused and I feel increasingly guilty and restless.
