Is it recommended to get two full years of consulting experience before looking for a move elsewhere...for more comp (say to another Big 4, industry, attempt at MBB or FAANG)? Already have 8 yoe in the DoD space outside of consulting. And about 16 months of consulting exp
What was the Parthenon Group like before the EY acquisition? How was it perceived compared to MBB, Big 4, etc. in terms of prestige, exit opps, etc.?
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
Just received an offer for Sales Consultant at Oracle. Currently doing consulting at a Big 4. Can someone please share the day-to-day of a sales consultant at Oracle? I’ve heard about demoing products for clients, but is that the majority of the work? What technologies are used often? Do sales consultants work a lot of overtime? Is receiving target variable common? Thanks for your help!
Both roles are within the big 4. Which service line has better exit ops? Consulting or audit?
Big 4 🐠 - how were promotion raises like this year compared to ‘normal’ years at your firm?
Has anyone heard anything about the full time MBA program at UF? I simply want a respectable degree to work in industry in Florida after b4 tech consulting - appreciate any insight
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?
Best time to move from Audit into B4 FDD? Recently started as an A1 but looking to make the move within a year or so hopefully
Started business 2 months ago.. had great start now dead in the water trying to scrounge for job back at B4. Thankfully still have savings (6mo) and didn't invest a ton into biz yet. Still scared
New consultant here - when people talk about Strategy & Operations, what exactly is the operations side and what do they do? Coming from the perspective of the B4 firms having the more prestigious S&O group, but also having a separate supply chain/operations group? What’s the difference between the two ops groups?
I joined B4 after college in 2019 and ever since working as QA, mainly manual/ functional testing. Can't see any progress work wise in same projects/teams. Before job, I wasn't a complete nerd but I did have some sense of programming so I wish to use that in my real life work in future. Can someone suggest how should I use my spare time so as to not be stuck in manual testing or testing itself? I'm somewhat lost when thinking of career progression after maybe next 5 years.
Been working midsize for 9 months. I really want to go up to the big 4… 1) is it too early to leave? 2) Is it too late to apply? I’m on the east coast. Preferably NY/NJ if anyone can reference. 3) how do I explain to the recruiter why I’m leaving so early?
At the risk of being ridiculed, need to ask this ... no MBA or MBB experience ... M&A experience in Big 4... is it possible to break into Corp strategy ?
Jumping around big 4 for promotions, worth it?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
I struggle building a network and have anxiety every time I'm on the bench. I reach out to people I know for BD help etc but it's never authentic or turns to projects. Any suggestions?
Best examples of ramp back programs from parental leave? I get to choose my own adventure and am curious what’s worked well for others. Minimum hours required hasn’t been stipulated. Thanks!
Is rapid antigen test fine for returning to the USA by air? Looked online already but I’m always paranoid about travel requirements these days
Currently on H1-B and employed. Expecting to be laid off soon. Can I go from H1-B to H4, search for a job and come back to H1-B? (Spouse is on H1-B as well but no i-40)?
New hire in west coast here, talked to a MD in the office when I was on the bench and he got me staffed on one of his projects, should I email saying thank you for the opportunity or ping him.
What fun things you would do if you are on bench and know that you're starting engagement next week?
Hi! Debating whether to travel home over holidays this year. My visa expires this month and have changed employers since getting it stamped. Thoughts based on news releases, and experiences welcome

Say that you live in country A. You apply to a job in company X in country B (connecting with a director through LinkedIn). 4/5 days after a recruiter talks to you for a position in company X but in country A. You strongly prefer country B over A, so you state clearly to HR that you're willing to be part of the process only if you can also interview in B. You do not bring this up again and are in last round for X in country A. You have not heard back yet from B but prefer it. WWYD?
Fishes, Facebook reached out for a interview. I am on h1-b and wanted to understand if they are sponsoring GC amidst everything that is going on with the company? Thinking if I should even try.

For someone coming from an accounting background, what would be a good role to switch to in marketing. I heard Marketing Strategy can be an option. P.S. The person has an MBA and Marketing Certificate
How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?
I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
