If I took a part time MBA program, can I still campus recruit for a summer role at MBB, Big 4, FAANG, etc?

I’m wondering what Accenture is actually doing. Is it more like a Big 4 Firm, doing theoretical consulting things. Or is it more a IT-Service/ Outsourcing company like Connection, Atos, Bechtle, etc. doing hands on technical things? Where is the main focus on?
Anyone know NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) well & willing to zoom tutor for an hour? Would like to hear about it in a practical sense, big 4 or similar preferred. Will venmo $125 💵☺️
Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?

Is there a big difference between MM and B4 WLB? I liked the people at the MM firm better, but don't if B4 means that much I could see myself staying.
Friends of fishbowl. Need advice on two very different offers I have: - ZS Consultant: 170k base, 20k signing. Will be joining Process Excellence and Transformation under the Business Operations Group - Deloitte Manager: 155k. Will be joining Strategy & Analytics and will focus on Financial Services Money aside, which is better for career growth, culture, experiences? Note that I already have 4 years of consulting experience at another big 4 so brand recognition is not important to me
I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations. I've received a very good job offer by another Big 4 in the same sector and service but with better career growth opportunities. I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?
Has anyone moved from a big 4 to a BDO/GT/RSM? I have an opportunity to move to a mid tier as a manager or stay at KPMG for another year to become a manager. On one hand, I have consistently been a top performer and have an outstanding reputation at KPMG, but on the other hand I am and sick of the forced standardization/granularity and overall long hours culture at B4. Also, I look up and see that managers/partners are abused here in my B4 office. Will it be materially different at a BDO/GT/RSM?
Does the CPA actually pave the way for a higher salary (outside of public) or was that a lie..

I’ll be promoted next year to senior but I’m in a niche role where I don’t see myself long term. Should I make a job switch now or should I wait to get promoted to senior? I currently have 1.5 years of experience.

Interviewed at an org where they disclosed 50% of lawyers left the team in < 1 year, work life balance issues, lay offs and pay cuts, so they're understaffed and underpaid. Would you see this as a 🚩?

Would a manager bring a person to a project and purposely sets him/her up for failure but pretends to be nice and enjoy the moment?
Agree or Disagree? Remote teaching = more parental involvement. If you agree, do you think this is for the best, or are they getting TOO involved?
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
Just found out I may have to start in summer 2022 at my firm. I was a summer intern, and since I am starting a master's in business analytics this year, and it will take roughly 1.5 years full time to finish, does anyone have career advice for how about handling the situation? (Risk advisory intern btw) Should I just accept the offer for 2022, and later reneg if I find something better, or would it be better to just decline now. Under normal circumstances I would just reneg, but this economy.
