Anyone have a link for interview questions for someone interviewing at a mbb firm from big 4 advisory? If you don't have a link posting a question you think I should be prepared for is appreciated
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
Is it worth taking up an offer at PwC as a Manager for the same salary I am currently making in my public sector industry job ? The hiring manager at PwC has assured of a promotion to SM in the immediate future.
Boomerangs- at the time, when you left big 4 were you sure you were leaving for what you wanted to be doing?
Currently a Director at another Big 4 (best guess c.3 yrs from partner) and have been asked to join Deloitte as a Parter. Anything I should be aware of? It would likely be a Salaried Partner offer, what is the normal rate of progression to equity partner?
I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
Currently @ $103k TC, NY based Due for raise and bonus that will most likely bring me to $120k TC by end of summer Offered a position @ $150 TC, says it’s remote.. Would you forfeit an amazing network of people for 25% raise and the ability to work remote?
Hi. Recently have got an offer from CGI. I have heard a lot of good things about this organisation. I am dropping my joining to one of the Big 4 to join here. Is it worth it? Please comment folks.
Desi Consultants!! - who all are thinking of hiring Sima Taparia (after watching Indian matchmaking on Netflix) for finding your future significant other?
Just got laid off today.... anyone hiring account executives? 3 years experience working across integrated campaigns in multiple industries. Hungry and eager to get back into the weeds!!
Interviewed for a senior technical position at a startup (about 50 employees). During the interview the CEO spent about 20 minutes answering my questions. There was no discussion about my technical skills or experience. They emailed that they are working on an offer. Is the interview process a redflag? The only technical screening that happened was the HR lead's 10 minute phone call.
Hey there! I’m looking into a move from academia to industry. Higher education is a hot mess and my job has no formal growth opportunities. I am not paid competitively for my role or location. Plus, we just got our first raise in 8 years! It was about 2%. I feel like my passion is no longer serving me and the future I want to pursue. Tips for making the switch? I just had my final interview for an IFS research position at PwC.
Currently a teacher but looking for a career move. What are jobs that a teacher can move to without having to go back to school? Everyone says don’t leave because the benefits are good but when health, dental, and vision rates are rising constantly and I could do my own retirement plan in a different field I’d argue the benefits aren’t something to keep you in a position any longer.
Any B4 to MBB experienced hires (excluding MBA recruiting) here? Would love to hear about any advice you have about applying.
I’m sure this has been asked before, but I couldn’t find it. My husband is a SM and trying to decide between MD and principal. What pay can he expect with each path at big 4?
Case interviews scare me. I know I’m in consulting but before the interview for my current role I had never done a practice case. When I was prepping I barely ate for 2 weeks because I was so stressed and nervous. I have case interviews coming up for positions I really want and I’m freaking out again. I like consulting but don’t know if I can do that all over again just to *maybe* get the job. Any words of encouragement or tips to get me through this and prepare thoroughly? Anything helps
Do anyone know what are the wfh kits will be provided by Hexaware for experienced employees who is joining newly to organization? Any ideas?
My wife setup an introductory meeting with a T2 strategy firm's managing partner. She doesn't work with him but has a friend who does, which is how this was setup. I'm trying to transition from implementation (10 years) to strategy so I really want to impress. What talking points and questions would you all recommend?
Hey y’all, what’s Tax senior 1 in Big 4 compensation look like in the Southeast? Looking to come back home from a high COL northeast. Mainly looking at Charlotte, NC. Responses are much appreciated 😊
Hey everyone! Reaching out on hope and good faith here. Is there anyone that currently works at LinkedIn? I see a role I’m interested in but wanted to discuss to gain more insight before I applied. Please DM. Thanks.
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
Anyone here gone from big 4 to MBA to MBB? Any tips? Planning on recruiting for summer internships in the fall but heard “interesting” work experience (I.e., blue chip, IB, engineering) is what gets you an interview, while I have very “uninteresting” work experience coming from big 4. Any insights are much appreciated!!
Advice for negotiating salary when first starting at your firm? How much higher than my current salary dare I put as desired salary? MD/MBA here in healthcare sector. Please help!

Any tips or guidance are appreciated. please help
Deloitte M&A? Why am I seeing a lot of posts say it’s culture is toxic? Is WLB worse compared to other Big4/Mid tier? Thanks.
Shameless plug to a LinkedIn post that I wrote yesterday. Lists upon lists of remote companies including EMEA/APAC roles. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chris-day-2021_opentowork-remotejobs-fishbowlapp-activity-6857385362189299712-Lboo
Best luggage for travel? Just got consulting job at MBB and looking to buy some new stuff.
Just had one of the best interviews I ever had & thought I was sure to get it, but I was informed they didn't chose me. I have to get a FT position for my teachers of tomorrow program, what do I do?
I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?
I think I could wfh on a full-time basis. I've got a great set-up, spend zero time commuting, work a lot, and still get plenty of sleep. Most importantly, I finally got my Nespresso all set up.
Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.
My O1 visa was just approved and I needed to say it to someone who understood the relief and the hard work involved in getting to this point. I’m so so happy!
How can I improve attention to detail? C here and made three careless mistakes on excel sheets (important data) in a row today. Feeling like I’m gonna get fired
Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!
