Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it. Generally fed up with the long hours, lack of project variety, and the firm’s small practice and lack of focus in my interest area and wondering if things would improve at a boutique that specializes in what I want to do.
I recently got a verbal from B4 firm but have yet to receive the written (going on 2 weeks now). I have recently received another verbal offer from a different B4 firm. How should I negotiate with the original firm for more $? What would you say? This is my first time switching jobs so fairly new.
Is it a common feeling or that diversity hires at big 4 are less qualified than individuals hired through general channels? Can anyone in HR support or refute?
Will be putting my notice tomorrow to jump to another big 4. Background check is not complete yet, do I need to check in with new firm to make sure everything is good on their end before I give notice

MBB helps their employees find an exit opp via alumni connections and an internal job search. Why doesn’t Big 4/ACN/IBM do that? It’s looked down upon to say you are interested in leaving.

Hey Big 4, has PWC, EY, and Deloitte committed to a "no travel until Jan 1" comment yet?
Has anyone made a switch from B4 to professional services at a software company? Why you made the move? Lessons learned. Thanks.
How much $$ are firms are willing to pay for a consultant with 3 YOE? It seems like a lot of firms are on a craze to hire and poach talent. Trying to judge how much I can negotiate with a lateral move (Big 4), and whether it's worth leaving my very comfortable environment right now. Would appreciate your input - thanks in advance!
What’s the purpose of huge tax compliance practices at the big 4? The fees are small. Is there some other business purpose or am I missing something?

Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?

Does switching to a similar role at another firm typically create a delay for getting promoted? For example, Associate to Senior Associate on my current team almost always takes 2 years on the dot (give or take a month). If after 1 year I switched to a similar role at a competing firm, could I still expect to get promoted after another 1 year, or does switching firms usually cause it to take longer?
I have a gambling addiction. As soon as I get paid I blow it all. I have $17,500 in credit card debt and $30,000 in student loans. I won't spend it if I can't touch it, but I need to pay bills. (Cnt)
