Offered a big 4 sr consultant advisory opportunity, 18% AIP but also offered an industry role paying $30k more, same AIP, yearly merit increases, 100% remote and Flex Time Off. It seems like those in the big 4 consulting roles are dying to get back to industry. What would you do? Would the name (Deloitte) alone be worth the “up to 50% travel” and stress?

Hi Fishes,

I had resigned from TCS during Mayl21...had got offer from KPMG...
But luckily I cleared Jan DCA and I got almost the same offer...they promised me that they'll change my project to BigData which they have...so I withdrew my resignation...

Now just yday I received an offer from LTI...
It's a good offer...

But, I am afraid whether I am eligible to resign within this 8 month interval?
Is there any cooling period between two resignations in TCS?

Pls help guys🙏🏾

What have you done to improve a toxic culture? Best to leave (at a critical time in the project & be hated) ? Push through (not really an option, already have long lasting MH effects)? Talk to the M (who is mean, defensive, abrasive and 100% will not respond well)? Talk to the PMD (and risk the Ms rep)? High visibility project & one of the most successful PPMDs but M is causing serious mental health trials for multiple people in a way that impacts the work. PPMD and M are best friends.
