Partners - How much did you make in your first 3 years (pls don’t subtract the loan repayments)? SM5 here and might make it in a year or max two; have a strong case & great n/w at D. Need to make my mind on an FAANG offer of $450k+. Options - Wait to make P at D or take this FAANG offer now.
All the Big 4 Partner questions answered in one place: 1) 1st year - 350k to 700k. 2) 5th year - 750k to 1.4M 3) Stop asking about and worrying about the buy in. It is an opportunity and not a significant out of pocket cost. The only thing you should think about with the buy in is that it is an at risk asset, but if you have concerns about short term firm failure, you’re already at the wrong firm. 4) Take the Pship if ever offered. Non equity positions below Partner are always at risk
Fellow fishbowlers, have you transitioned from mid-tier to B4? If so, what were the pros and cons?
What is a salary for Audit Senior 1 external hire in Boston with 2 YoE in audit? People form Big 4/ Mid Size all are welcome to share their insights 🙂 Also if anyone can share how the year end performance bonus looks like 🤔
Working at a Big 4 is like dating the most popular guy in school. At first you're like, "Aww yeah!" then you're like, "This fucking guy..."
Is there any hiring going on at the big 4 right now? I’m a Biologist but I’m working on an MBA from W&M (love this school). I’ll be done in 6 months so I’d like to start applying for jobs this month.
Anyone have experience as a controller/ assistant controller in an outsourced accounting firm? I recently came across an assistant controller opportunity at a company that provides outsourced accounting to businesses. I think this could be a good opportunity, since I would still be exposed to multiple clients and would ‘lead’ an accounting team while hopefully gaining GL experience at a faster rate than in a traditional role. Just want to know others thoughts? Recently promoted to manager (B4).
Hi fishes, What is the average consultant salary in Big 4 with 5 year of experience. If anyone can tell me for each big four, for KPMG it's kgs. Thanks
Happy Friday Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral. Finally have data after the past 6 months - over half of my referrals got interviews. 20% offers. This is much higher than applying on your own. I’m more than happy to help: - Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.) - Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep / the firm - Share tips for the new BCG interview format
Best time to get a raise? Expecting an offer first week of Jan from another B4. Will EY match? I dont want to leave but it seems to be the only way to get myself paid market value or better.
If you decline a B4 experienced hire offer, does it destroy your chances of getting a future offer with that firm?
Idea: What keeps Big 4 from getting into rentals/housing? Imagine a pilot program, where associates are offered studios/1 BRs that are very close to the office. And rent is basically guaranteed!!
Where/How do I look for exit opportunities? ~2 yoe been doing PMO/Tech implementation/compliance. Been looking mainly on Linkedin and am seeing majority Big 4 consulting and finance.
What’s a reasonable salary for a senior 1 in Dallas? Considering jumping to another big four. Seems like it’s 65-75 according to big 4 transparency?
Is a switch from RSM audit to Big 4 FDD a realistic transition? Normally I’d consider an internal transfer but with all firms being strapped for talent it seems like jumping to a new firm would be a better call if possible
Hi everyone, very new in here. I saw a lot of posts from big 4 and was wondering if anyone is also from small to mid size accounting firms? How is the learning environment and if they international students like me.
How many first year analysts here started as interns? What did you guys do to get those jobs?

What should one expect to be different when transitioning from Accenture/Deloitte to MBB?
New senior flies in a day late, busts into the room with no apologies, and tells me (the only minority & female in the room) that I should get the coffee before the manager comes. I'm the manager. 😏
Has your senior or manager ever said "This JUST does not look right" when they saw your work without giving any reasons?
My client just showed me the edits she made to my 90 tab financial model and it took her 20 hours something that I could have done in 30 min. She also hard coded it things and f'ed it all up #awesome
Good boutique consulting Cos in DC area please
Anyone else feel like IT Consulting is just industry in the most inconvenient way? "U will travel, have 2 inboxes/calendars, limited access, expenses to manage & pander to client politics. Good luck!"
Sitting in a lyft for an hour and as we approach the client site, the driver says "I see you changed apartments" - he was spot on to where I used to live, not sure to be impressed or creeped out 🤔
What a clusterf... someone replied to Washington Metro All, and people keep replying to all to tell them to stop replying to all. #stopthemadness 😂
