Are you an associate? In my experience and esp with the market the way it is you won't get a bump to SC anywhere else right now unless a) you know someone b) you can bring client work to them. You have a better chance of making SC next year at KPMG but you have you make it clear during goal setting check in every 2 months and be ready to push yourself for way more than just client work

Yeah I don't think you want to come to Deloitte either...shit's still on fire.

What is the typical requirement for SC? Two years or three years? I'll be at my two-year mark in September. Do I get a better chance if I start applying then? The main reason for my leave is I want to relocate to another city but KPMG does not have a presence in that city for my service area. Other Big3 do.

Don't come to PwC till September. They are pushing back start dates for new hires.

You can start interviewing now though.

SC at Deloitte will not happen for you with less than two years of experience anyway. You'd be hired in as C at best.

@OP: SC at Deloitte is generally 4-5 years in, we have an extra Analyst level below C so it's 2 years A, 2-3 years C. I'm 4 years in coming from a non-MBA masters

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA?
