Just put in my 2 weeks!! Done with big 4.
Anyone work at both MBB and Big 4 in their career (i.e. the McDeloitte combo)? How drastically different was the average level of talent? Were there any dumb McK's you thought would struggle at McD's?
Big 4 offer: 65k Mid size (top 10) offer: 71k Would it be delusional if I accept the mid size offer?
What is the toughest challenge for a Consultant to transition from big 4 to MBB consulting? I was fortunate enough to get an MBB offer as an experienced Consultant and want to make sure I hit the ground running. Thanks! Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
Hey everyone, new to the big 4 (only about 3 months) and I think I’ve finally got my bearings at the company. Anyone have any tips on how to network internally for being rolled onto a team? Like when I reach out to someone for a coffee chat, what do I say/ do? Ask about how they got into that role? Ask for internal work? Any advice is appreciated!
Would experience in big 4 FDD make one a competitive candidate for FP&A or other roles in a FAANG several years down the line?
MBB, and particularly Big 4 fish - How much of your time do you spend on internal marketing of your services, internal recruitment to your service line? None, Some, Much or Lot.
Any companies hiring for Director level+ in Information Security / GRC? I have 8+ YOE - a mix of Big 4, smaller advisory/consulting firm, and industry experience. Industry has been focused on FinTech/Startup space, but focused on mid-size/larger clients when at the Big 4 & smaller advisory/consulting firm.
Why does PwC Law take almost 2 years as compared to other companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon etc. take only 1-1.5 years for the whole I140 approval process. Does all Big 4 make you wait for long to get your I140?
Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
Hello cyber team! Can anyone help suggesting sys integrator/implementation firms that are focussed primarily on cloud and devsecops? Also do they match big 4 salaries to some extent? Tia!
Is any of the Big 4 forcing you back to the office? Thinking about joining but don’t really want to give up WFH.
Curious how Tier 2 work and Big 4 work differs from MBB. I have heard their lifestyle is better. What do they do differently?
Does anyone know acceptance rates at big 4 type firms versus boutiques? Most assume big 4 are harder to get into and more prestigious than boutiques or lower level firms. I’m at a mid tier firm so I’m fairly neutral in this. I’ve worked with highly intelligent, and highly incompetent, consultants from either type of firm. Would love to hear your thoughts on this and any data you have. Sometimes I wonder why big 4 is so highly revered when work products I review are less than stellar.
When you drive your own car to a client site where you are staying in a hotel, do you also charge the mileage of driving around the city during the week or just the there and back?
In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
How open are you to telling co-workers you're thinking of leaving the firm? Do you wait till you have an offer at hand or once you start interviewing? Does your relationship with the person determine how early you tell them?
I was late in submitting some expenses due to which my Amex got blocked. Am I in trouble ??
ACN: Can charge to central training instead of pto if I'm going to take classroom training and certification?
Let's talk about diversity and recruiting. I'll go first. I've had unconscious bias training and it helped me a lot. It taught me how to look a little harder at portfolios of candidates who may- con't
For those of you that exited to Facebook from Consulting, what role did you join? And how do you like the company culture, workload and relocation (if needed)?

I’ve applied to Experienced Associate roles in Valuation services for EY/PwC and have worked on valuations project in the past as a rotation. Was wondering if anyone else has made the switch and/or is open to referring me?
For those who have been laid off - have any of you thought or actively tried to pivot into a new career/field?
CGI or CACI? CGI: 107k base, match50% up to 4% max of $2500, health deductible is 2k 🙃 i believe annual raise is 2% (at most). Or stay at CACI: 86k, match50% up to 8%, deductible is 600, annual raise 3%.
Interviewing for MIT Sloan Fellows MBA (1 year program) shortly. 10YOE and joining MBB in a couple of months, post-MBA level role. Reading some previous FB posts disparaging the SF program and feeling a bit downhearted about it. Are Sloan Fellows really looked down on by the normal (2 year) Sloan MBA program? Are there better alternatives for a 1 year MBA? MIT has been a dream for a while but it’s kind of like being told your baby is ugly…
For those who have made/making the move from FDD over to FP&A, how do you address the lack of financial modeling skills in interviewing? Seems like a big gap when at Manager or above level when that’s one of the biggest parts of the FP&A function.
What is v10/v20/v30? I work at Latham but in London and we don’t use that terms at all in the UK. We have magic circle for the top UK firms and white shoe for the top US (although most people don’t really use white shoe, they just assume all US firms in London are decent due to the salary disparity).
Accenture folks, what's the current salary for a first year Senior Analyst (CL10) at Accenture Federal Services (applied Intelligence/AWS skillset)
Anyone see new FY19 utilization metrics? Seems like goals for associates and seniors went down but goals for manager and director went up. What gives?

How much of a value-add are Exec MBAs? I've not come across many of them. Been in IB for 9 years (no MBA) and wonder if it's something I do around the time I try to move up?
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
