Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾
Interview on Friday for an internal audit position. Apparently I have to write a case assessment an hour prior to the interview (like an exam). Has anyone done such a thing before? Any tips?
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Got a verbal offer from a big 4 a month ago, discussed salary expectations 3 weeks ago, still no offer letter. Firm has to let me know it should be coming soon. Are these normal timelines?
After being laid off for 5 months and applying to over 500 jobs, I finally received and accepted an offer today! 🎉

Thoughts on applying to roles at FAANG that your qualified for but don’t see yourself doing long term just to get your foot in the door, then trying to pivot—anyone have experience doing this?
Has anyone here ever left a big 4 graduate scheme early? Were there negative consequences? How was it perceived ? Looking to go into something very different, as big corporate life is not for me..
I had a great interview for a new job and an initial offer, but HR told me that there's no room for negotiation. I'm a woman, and the HR rep is an older gentleman that I think doesn't respect my experience/position. I'm not sure if I should take it or push back. I don't want to be the person who doesn't reach for what I deserve, and I don't know whether to believe him.
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Has anyone from MBB worked at the same client where there is one of the big 4 ? How are the dynamics between the two in that engagement?
Any anecdotes on what happened to MBA consulting interns who received return offers during the last recession? Were offers rescinded? Feeling pretty nervous.

SC offer from Deloitte in transaction services in a HCOL city - 85 base plus standard bonus. I asked her if there was more wiggle room bc that’s what I’ll get at my current firm when I make senior. Am I out of line with my expectations or right in asking for more?
I've been putting my 401k into a target date fund, but the risk/upside just isn't high enough given I'm not retiring for another 30 years. Thoughts on putting it all in a large-cap growth fund (VIGIX)? Returns have been solid over last 10 years. Investing through work, so don't have all funds available to me.

Haven't seen anyone put "Available for Staffing" in their Skype location. Seeks like it would be helpful for people in your network to know you're free without contacting everyone. Any downside?
