Anyone switch firms among the big 4 and felt you were performing exceedingly well, even though you didn’t really doing anything different in your previous big 4 firm to begin with? Want to understand if its the firm rather than the individual sometimes.

It’s the team. The contribution you make and the recognition you get is heavily influenced by your direct team members you deal with day to day, not by the company as a whole.

While on a whole the firms are similar, there are definite strengths and weaknesses relative to each other. Could be that you moved to a firm with less competition in your space, which gave you more opportunity to shine. On a more general note, it could also be that you just click better with the new cohort…

I felt the opposite. Switched from another big 4 to EYP strategy and my performance ratings went way up. Think it was 2 reasons - 1) I felt way more energized and excited by the EYP work and wanted to do better 2) there were wayyy more politics around meaningless BS at my previous firm with nonsense internal initiatives, very subjective feedback, and people who generally wanted to game the system rather than do good work So to your point yeah I think it’s pretty firm dependent

Oh lord take me with you lol

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).

Just spoke to someone who landed an interview at their dream company. They didn’t get it through applying. Here’s what they did instead: 1. They studied the job post. 2. They identified that the reason for the hire was to generate more company revenue. 3. They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it. Whats the best way you’ve seen someone land an interview?
