New consultant in Big 4 here. I can’t believe I am asking about this, but I landed on a team where half the team are older East Asian immigrants and don’t get along due to national and cultural differences. I am just watching virtual hostility in front of me daily. The other half of the team (myself included) are American raised of all different identities are more junior and just don’t know what to do. Advice please.
Does anyone else worry about their big 4 career for not being the most apt at small talk. I'm worried I'm not the most memorable member of my team for my clients and what it would mean going forward.
I only been at BIG 4 for a year. I am so miserable because I work at PwC and my team is huge and the busy season is endless. I was thinking of transferring to a different firm because I dont feel like I fit my culture so was thinking of moving to a different firm?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
I have an offer with one of the Big 4 and H1 transfer is also approved. I will be joining in two weeks( delayed by a month). Now I got an offer from a small company which I am interested, with similar pay(No travel, better WLB). Is it wise, not the join the Big 4 ? Will they black list me forever, given that they already spent money on my H1B process.
Hello People, I need a help. I have accepted an offer from big 4. Now i want revise the offer from 10 LPA to 12 LPA. Is there any way to do so without having a counter offer. As i am feared about losing it I don't want to counter but instead just want to win by words. Would highly appreciate any help from you all.
Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
Any stories about how the independence policies at Big 4 have practically affected your personal finances? Would also love to hear how consulting business is affected by not overlapping audit clients
Apple Anyone know the reputation of retail finance strategy and if it’s worth to jump from strategy consulting from big 4?

Interviewing in industry with an international firm that is looking for someone with 8 years experience but the title is Senior Associate. I am a big 4 manager right now. What should I do?
Significant other is active duty marine corps and while I have 10 years of experience, having a tough time “making the right moves” to climb the ranks in consulting due to needing to (or at least needing to be available to) relocate every few years. Anyone willing to chat? Looking to get into MBB if possible. Prior big 4 exp and worked across human capital, tech, and some S&O. Super hard working and quick learner.

Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.
Advisory Managers that left EY for another big 4…when you gave your 2 weeks notice (or 4 weeks), were you let go effective immediately or did they allow you to continue to work despite the fact you were going to a competitor?
Does any insurance cover GC medical and lab tests? I think the answer is no but would love to hear your experiences.

Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
Slalom Consulting 🐠 How’s the Financial Services practice? Do they sell a fair amount of strategy work?
I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
Amazon L5 program manager salary ranges?

What type of consulting is it when you tell the client what to do to minimize the amount of taxes?
Best reason or negotiation points to ask recruiter for a joining bonus. Got offer 15% jump in current base with 20-25% annual bonus but want to get joining bonus as well
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

URGENT - Does anyone know if US consulates in Mexico are doing regular visa stamping for third country nationals at this point?
Lot of negatives from Covid. Am curious to poll this crowd on what we think the long term positives will be, both for consultants and society at large. Let’s generate some positive vibes.
I’m a non-traditional UG student veteran at Yale University w/10 YoE in the intel community, 1YoE contracting for a 3 letter agency and had an IB internship with an NY-based BB last year (received FT offer but turned it down for family reasons). Graduate in May ‘22 & major in poly sci. Applying for FT roles with MBB this summer and am wondering if anyone had any advise on other consulting firms worth applying to? I’m sure I’m overlooking some firms & Yale CS hasn’t been very helpful. Thank you!
