For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
Anyone else putting their two weeks before the Holiday Big 4 Break? Currently in busy season and worried how mad they will be. Going to a compeititor so not sure how long they will let me stay. Anyone have experience doing this?
1 year of experience in. Base 80. How much of a % increase could I expect moving into a more technical role at a different B4?

Have around 2YOE in B4 consulting. Debating whether to apply to Bschool next year or recruit for MBB/T2 strategy consulting. What factors should I be considering? Interested in strategy for the skill set to be more marketable for PE or tech companies
I’ve talked with some Asian friends who are also in big 4 and we all agree that we don’t know to talk or bs like Americans. Who’s with me?
I have offers from all the big 4s. Which is the best big 4 to join among Deloitte India, KGS, PwC sdc, EY GDS?
Any folks know what the avg pay band is for Manager level HR/D&I recruiters at B4 firms?
How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
Why do people always try to knock the prestige of the big 4? Sure some people may not think that we are prestigious but judging by our rates, our clients sure do.

Any Product Managers / Product Manager-adjacent people in canberra, working on operations modelling, business improvement? What companies other than the big 4 for this, in topics that are more in the engineering space than the ICT space?

Expecting an hr discussion for c10 role soon. Yoe 3+ years and current CTC 16.5.+2 variable Would quoting 25 fixed be risky?? The job requires me to move to New location that's why quoting a bit high.

Hi everyone!! Any suggestions on podcasts, books, articles that help you grow your knowledge in marketing? I’d love to learn it all, but especially as it pertains to field marketing/events would be fantastic ♥️
I need advice on a late in life career pivot. I am spoiled - well-paid, but will never receive a raise above 1% or a decent bonus (I've hit the ceiling). My new boss is horrible, and 1/2 of the team left in the first year of her tenure. Staying is my last resort. My limitations: I need a high-level legal job (Assistant GC) in the LA area. I specialize in intellectual property law and global procurement. Do I hire someone to help with the search? The job boards have limited opportunties for me.
Who has a pre-interview ritual they'd like to share? Not sure what to do except twiddle my thumbs and watch tik tok videos to distract myself from the anxiety : )
I literally have food poisoning and people won’t stop bugging me about stuff even after I said I was sick. What do other people do on the very rare occasions when they’re actually too sick to do anything (maybe happens like once a year to me). Out of office? Refer to assistant? Nothing?
I am currently working as lead associate in the assurance Team of EY GDS, pursuing ACCA. I have a total of 4.5 years of experience with ~ 2 years of experience in audit. Is there any chance to get recruited in Deloitte USI ( for audit or any other SL?)
For people at remote-first companies (I’m in industry, not deloitte anymore), how do you feel about optional in-person events for employees that live close to the optional office? Especially wondering about the feelings of people who chose to live in a different city, and therefore can’t attend.
I get mistaken as a student at the school I work at. How can I establish my authority in the classroom as well as on campus?
