Have had a lot of friends in Big 4 tech consulting transition to “solution engineering” in industry. Is this description accurate?
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
If switching from one big 4 firm to another how does switching over cell phone plans work?
Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
Do mid size firms have similar advancement schedules as B4 i.e. associate (2 years), senior (3 years), manager (3 years), senior manager?
New To the Big 4 and having trouble articulating my individual goals on Workday. All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Which big 4 would be better for M&A? I'm interested in eventually attempting a lateral transfer into investment banking. I know it's a long reach but want to have an option that doesn't involve getting an MBA. Thanks!
Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.

Manager in M&A at Big 4, multiple IB associate and 2nd year associate interview offers, non-MBA, worth pursuing?
Has pipeline slowed for you (US): MBB Big 4 Boutiques (Parthenon) Other (ATK, Strategy&)? I know lots of overlap in the type of work and clients but thought this is the best way to segment for now.
New to public (industry transfer). I joined a small firm growing a FDD practice. How hard will it be to move into MM or B4 and how long should I wait?
No one acknowledged my new stapler in the office so far. I'd like a new project please.
Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
COVID life has got me in some major frump. What cute clothes are you guys wearing? Looking to update a bit for spring. Still anticipating to be mostly at home though through summer if not longer.
Need recommendations for things to do tonight and tomorrow night in Boston. I am on-site - Boston downtown till Thursday. First time in Boston.

I know most night clubs are closed on weeknights, so looking for next best thing. M, 30s. Tia.
My mom is going through a very bad situation with her previous employer who is not paying her her correct retirement benefits after screwing up their paperwork. She worked for a school district for about 15 years. She has a case but she is afraid it’s not high value enough to attract the attention of the attorney. School district is now ghosting her. If anyone has advice or interest, please let me know, thanks so much

Would very much appreciate the opportunity to have a conversation!! McKinsey & Company
How do I deal with a super intense senior associate that is making life difficult? This associate sees no difference between 11 AM and 11 PM, weekend or weekday. They will text me on my personal cell instead of emailing, insist on long zoom calls during which they insist on turning camera on, won’t review anything I send them unless it’s on a zoom call (yes, that is crazy and not the norm at my firm), and is not a good team player (something good? He did it! bad? You did it)! What do I do?
Leaving Deloitte for a better consulting firm & a 50%+ raise. Thank you to D, if they didn’t pay me raises 1/10th the size of competitors, I would’ve never applied!

Why do some companies ask for 8+ YoE + MBA for mid-management positions (Manager, Sr. manager, Associate, Sr. Associate). At 8 YoE the super talented people would probably be looking for director level roles. Wouldn’t it be better to get them at like 3-5YoE?
Anyone heard anything from droga on their internship this summer? Happening? Not? Anyone being interviewed?
This is a very broad question — and I’m just trying to get a general answer. NON-MBA BIG4 fish at the senior associate / consultant / senior consultant level — do you make over 140K?
