I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help
What is a typical Tax Senior 1 salary at the Big 4 in the Bay Area? Looking to relocate and need to negotiate compensation.
I’m trying to hop between big 4 consulting roles. Presently, I’m a life science PhD and MBA hire to EY with 3+ YOE as a Senior consultant/associate. Do I have any shot at manager roles assuming I focus on life science roles? I’m concerned my lack of manager title kills any chance I have of joining another firm as a manager.
I have one year of big 4 experience. When I was applying for a company they are asking me for my SAT score. Do you think this is a red flag?
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?
