Are there any differences between working as a S1 consultant in big 4 versus senior consultant in industry? Is 10% worth the move?

Don’t know the direct answer to your question but I’ll just say 10% is never going to be worth the move to me unless I get to the point where I absolutely despise my current job.

Unless you are so miserable you can’t think of working @ EY much longer, I wouldn’t make the move for 10%. After tax, it’ll be even less. Also, in industry, you can expect your % increase in raises to be smaller than what you would see at a Big 4 so you can stunt yourself by making the move to industry too soon

I wish I hadn’t waited until I was miserable to leave for Industry. Now I’m burnt out and really sour on public accounting. I left for a 10% raise and 30% less hours. I’d consider the raise on an hourly basis in order to decide if it’s worth it.

I’ve seen some people that have the job title of consulting in industry and I’m always like what does that mean exactly is that different than corporate strategy analyst?

10% is minimal but I would travel less for the job in industry

True. Raises were low in general this year. I’m not miserable but looking to settle down with an extra bump in salary

If you are working industry, 40 hours a week with a competitive pay and left B4 tax - can you share your new job title? Not sure what is out there that I could apply for. The b4 life is not for me and is actually affecting my family (mom of 2 kiddos). I’m looking into something with true flexibility and less than 50 hours a week. Any advice?
