What level is an “experienced hire” typically brought in at for MBB / b4. List YOE, company, title you came in at, schooling experience, any other relevant info.
Anyone have insight on their thoughts regarding being an associate at a Big 4 for 2 years and then taking a job at a boutique consulting firm for a higher up position/more management experience/ higher pay? I’m torn
Thoughts on chances for a Top 15 MBA? 3.5 undergrad GPA at top 20 university, 750 gmat, 1.5 years FS consulting, 1 year B4 advisory (mostly PMO work), Asian female
Made a personal decision to leave B4 (on good terms) after a period of career and rewards stagnation, however have now been asked to rejoin the firm. 🐠 fam, should I look back or just keep swimming?
Anyone joined Deloitte recently after H1B transfer from another big 4? I got the offer 4 weeks back and still waiting for the immigrations team to file the transfer?
What is the atmosphere like at the non-Big 4 firms? Currently at a smaller firm (notoriously known on this app as a sweatshop) and am sniffing around.
I have heard of at least one International tax staff being offered $120k to start at Big 4 (Boston). Is he lying, or have starting salaries become this inflated?
What % pay increase should I expect/is appropriate when leaving B4. 3rd assurance associate w/o cpa.
Which firms are openly hiring for entry-level jobs? I’m 1 year in and considering pivoting from IB to consulting. I have friends (MBB/Big 4) who can refer but not sure who to ask if, depending on whether those firms are even taking people.
Thinking of moving from B4 to Accenture or Slalom. I mostly do Epic stuff. Pros seem to be no audit/independence crap, less travel, more tech work. Any cons?
Should I pull the trigger and apply to another job. I’ve been at big 4 for a little over a year now and I don’t see myself staying until manager, possibly not even senior. I never was super ecstatic about the job, but it has gotten worse since WFH began. Another job opportunity appeared closer to my home with the potential of a $10K+ pay increase.
The Pitchbook League Tables list KPMG as a top Ibank in multiple geographies. Only one of Big 4. Is KPMG brokering and underwriting deals?
My sad thinks I do audits because I'm in a big 4. I've been doing what I do for 5 years and it isn't even remotely close to an audit 😒😟😩😭
I left B4 as a senior and went to industry. Hated it and decided to take a job at top-10 firm after 2 years. The pay is on par with my industry job and the hours are a bit better than B4, but I’m thinking about jumping back to original firm or maybe a different B4. Any one else have a similar path? I hate how this will look on my resume and maybe feel a little like the grass is greener, but I think I have some good reasons.
What’s the general experience with leaving B4 going to smaller, local firms? Is it big fish in small pond? Worth it? Hate it?
How much raise can someone get switching from B4 to B4 laterally? I would be switching at 2 YOE for a 1 title up from entry level role. Severely underpaid currently (estimated at 15% below peers despite literally perfect ratings).
How's the salary growth in consulting as compared to banking ( normal commerical banking) ? Yes Bank, ICICI bank seem to pay better than the advisory hiring by big 4 ( ey, kpmg, Deloitte, pwc). In 5-7 years down the line, which line has the best salary growth? IT consulting, consulting or banking? Thanks!
I have a 2 hour interview with an agency tomorrow for a freelance role. This is my first time speaking with them, a recruiter set me up with them last week and they liked me enough to want to meet me (!!) I’m meeting the members of the team individually which is why it’s so long, but do you think a 2 hour interview right off the bat is a good sign? Any tips for not burning out over the course of 2 hours?
Any recommendations for a Starwood or Marriott hotel in Miami or South Beach for families with little kids?
For those of you in Tier 1 cities, how much do you pay in rent compared to your monthly salary? My monthly rent is $2.6k (36% of monthly income) and am wondering if that’s too much..
Any big 4 ts/fdd managers or senior managers with healthcare, life sciences, fso or technology experience interested in joining ey?
Moving up to the Audit Manager role in a few days. Any words of advice as I transition into the new position?
Thoughts on returning to a prior firm? Bad idea? Or ok under the right circumstances? My main reasons for leaving were better salary and to live closer to family. I work quite a bit more now so I don’t see my family that often, and am always working when I do go visit. Also, interestingly, I received a significant raise at my last firm about a week before I gave notice. So they *were* willing to pay me more; it just happened too late.
Chicago creatives, who (for the most part) loves their team, their client, and their job? Who is doing cool things that people should want to be part of? Trying to plan my next move...

Worth doing manufactured spend on Amex SPG card before Aug 12? Eg buying gift cards, spending them on money orders and depositing those back into the bank account.
If I have been staffed for pretty much the entire year (barring a couple of weeks) and I fall to 90% utilization because of PTO, trainings etc. will I be fine come year end?
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Got a letter from the IRS regarding additional informarion on advance tax credit payments on health insurance...wtf? Now they're withholding my return for 8 weeks
I hit my juul without thinking on a zoom conference during a 2 hour meeting. Nobody said anything but I definitely got some weird looks. Is this going to bite me in the ass? Should I apologize or just not say anything?
Need to quit before year end so I can cash out this PTO. Otherwise I lose and leave anyway. Anyone thinking the same?
