Is a firm generally better than the other in Big 4 FDD/Corporate finance? (Better culture, better perceived by exits, better pay, etc)
Is there any B4 firm(except KPMG) that hire experienced associate in FDD? I am looking around the web and most seems to be looking for only seniors. (PwC does but practically Senior cuz they require 2 years of experience)
Hi This is Mriganka Das working on Big Data Analytics in Nomura . My total experience is 6+ yrs and relevant in Big Data is 2.8 yrs .If there is any openings in any of the Big 4 pls do let me know..
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
I'm thinking of leaving Big 4 to go to a boutique firm. I have 2 years of experience. They are bringing me in at the Senior level. Smaller market. Ill be doing consulting on tax credits. They asked me for a salary range- is 75k-85k reasonable? or is that too low?
How’s the consulting work life balance at Big 4 in Europe Do folks work more than 45 hours through the week and is it normal to have to work on weekends?
Anyone at RSM or any other midsized firm know what the average pay for Senior Transaction services is? I would also assume the hours are a bit better than big 4 FDD? Looking to decide between industry or give another few years to public accounting. Also for the Chicago area or any MCOL area
If I have an offer from a competing B4 dated 6months ahead, do I need to notify when I accept/sign or that 6months later?
S3 here. Planning to move companies as my promotion this year looks unlikely. Can i pitch myself for a manager at another big 4? I have close to 9 years of experience and a masters
Did anyone make the switch from one b4 to another? Did you successfully transition/assimilate into the new b4? To those that did, do you recommend it? Any downside?
I got a $8,000 raise for year end and promotion, and no bonus. I just got written offer from other big 4 for 40k more then I am making at Deloitte.
Big 4 -> Software Sales? So I actually start in advisory with a diff b 4 firm tommorow as an experienced staff, I got contacted by a company that sells accounting software mostly close automation etc. they have big clients and got series D funding, I think I’d be a good fit but I don’t know how to judge these huge life decisions when they come so quick. I don’t HATE what I do now but I hate the cpa stuff and I think I might leave, thoughts?
I am working for 12-14 hours a day in a non client facing role at one of the big 4. What are some of the exit opportunities I can think of in the next 1-2 years? I want to have a 9-6 job with decent pay.
Has anyone moved from audit to recruiting within the big 4? How did you do it? How is the job?
I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
