You can make less money at Big4, which if you hate money is an advantage.

I've often seen closer to attractive people than not at mbb. Not saying this about you, ACN2, but I can't say the same for Accenture and I knew A LOT of people who went there.

MBB - strategy and access to all companies at decision making levels. Far less knowledgeable at the "doer" level of most organizations (where the make or break of solutions will happen). B4 - implementation of actual solutions (and often making the MBB plan operational). If you're pre-MBA, I assume a lot less (no?) PMO for new analysts compared to B4. Post MBA - different exit ops, at least closer to beginning of career than end.

Notice no1 from MBB will reply to your post. They probably don't have the team to even breathe.

like

As far as actual benefits: Probably easier to move into tax/audit, easier to move into tech implementation work

Maybe big4 name may ring a bell better with those that are completely unrelated in business over mbb. That and perhaps less intense than mbb.

@P2 it's higher leverage to have you all answer ;)

Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?
