The Pitchbook League Tables list KPMG as a top Ibank in multiple geographies. Only one of Big 4. Is KPMG brokering and underwriting deals?
Anyone have insight on their thoughts regarding being an associate at a Big 4 for 2 years and then taking a job at a boutique consulting firm for a higher up position/more management experience/ higher pay? I’m torn
Big 4 consultants - do you have CPE requirements? I had to do 15 hours of CPE training in the next three days thanks to good ol KPMG.... this is absurd I’m not an accountant.

Want to switch to consulting (MBB or Big 4) post a tier- 1 MBA, prior to this MBA i have 3.5years workex building my startup (1cr+ turnover) in agri-tech space.
Likely switching big 4 firms as a manager shortly and it has me thinking about independence issues. I assume that a number of securities that are green lighted at KPMG will be restricted at my new firm and I’ll be required to sell them. I’d rather not sell as most of them have large unrealized gains. I know independence is largely self reported, but they do do audits. How do they detect unreported brokerage accounts? Any one have experience?
Rumor is that former big 4 transaction advisory folks who are now managers at Alvarez & Marsal made over $300k this past year. Anyone here confirm this is true?

Anyone ever started at a big 4 as an undergrad campus hire, then moved to McK or BCG after 2-4 years, without going back to school?
This is going to sound stupid - but how do you work on your research skills as an associate at a big 4? Feel like unless you're not working on a consulting project or are an acting senior there's no real reason or opportunity to research stuff....
Thinking of moving from B4 to Accenture or Slalom. I mostly do Epic stuff. Pros seem to be no audit/independence crap, less travel, more tech work. Any cons?
Wise F 🐠 - negotiation help needed - my 57 yo stepmom is an associate VP at a hospital. She’s been offered her same role as .5 FTE instead of leaving outright. How should she negotiate scope of role?

I have heard of at least one International tax staff being offered $120k to start at Big 4 (Boston). Is he lying, or have starting salaries become this inflated?
I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞
