I had my BCG interviews yesterday (remotely) and feel I completely bombed them. Yet, I haven’t heard back from recruiting thanking me for my interest. Is there still hope?
What % increase would make you leave BIG 4 after a year experience? Have a good overall experience so far.
Is a switch from IT Audit (b4) to Product Management (industry) role a good move? C1. Significant pay bump as well.
What’s the typical process to move from a verbal offer to written offer? Do you typically need to tell the recruiter you’ve decided to accept their verbal offer before they send you a written offer to review? Also is there a standard timeline to make a decision (interviewing with other firms too, so timing is tricky bc would like to finish those processes before making a decision)
I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
Hi fishfam, any idea what the interview process for senior consultant in Deloitte USI looks like? Do you know anything about the case study initial round? Is it a take home exercise?
What’s the feasibility of going from Big 4 to MBB by entering a Part Time MBA program (Booth/Kellogg)? Current KPMG Manager.
I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️
How is the BCG Gamma group? I applied to the AI and consultant positions. It seems really interesting and curious if anyone can share some insight to it? Not sure my chances of getting an interview lol....
So I am having a very hard time deciding between two offers. One at EY and one at RSM. The RSM offer has a much higher base pay. But EY has the name, at the same time, my resume already has PwC on it. EY's offer is in the individual and fiduciary realm and RSM is more in the realm of corporations, provisions etc. I think I really want that provision experience. But i am definitely attracted to the whole prestige aspect. Does RSM really have better WLB than EY?
For people who came to Big 4 as an experienced senior, how long did it take to make manager from when you started?
Interview expenses for experienced hires - coming in from out of town. Do they book for you or reimburse you later?
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?
Where do you go in nyc to do phone interviews?
Is it normal in Big 4 to: 1. Assign tasks with least amount of direction, context and criticize for not thinking on the feet? 2. Assign more than one task at the same time and push for updates on all?
How can you tell if working there would be a total nightmare when interviewing? Like if the hours are insane and the management sucks? Best questions to ask during an interview to get a real gauge on the work life balance there?
Anyone transferred from B4 audit/tax/advisory to non-accounting positions in industry? What positions?
Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
Experienced hire difficulties I’ve been trying to get an opportunity within one of the Big 4 since May. Networked into phone conversations with multiple partners in my area of expertise. Con’t
Does anyone have any insight into how easy it is to jump from one omnicom agency to another, via applying internally?
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
Does anyone else feel like they’re consistently having to prove themselves every day? I don’t mean usual “trying to go above and beyond at work” I mean the nagging feeling that you might get fired if you don’t accomplish every email task or chat request that may or may not be directed to you. Constantly anxious at this job.
I’m so scared I’ll say “Love you” to a client.
Had a final interview Thursday and was just told by the recruiter, they will follow up in 1-3 weeks in regards to my candidacy. Good/bad sign? Or not worth worrying about?

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?
Does anybody else feel like “welcome back!” emails and messages are just people passive aggressively telling you that they know you took time off?
