I quit a small PA company to join big4 but my manager here is picky and she fixed everything that I did to her way. Now old manager asks if I want to come back if she matches the salary. What should I do? Yes I like my old manager, team and it was so comfortable back there. I don’t like big4 timesheet and the reason I left my old company because of I moved to different city. But now old company can provide wfh as well as big 4 I’m working now. Can someone give me advice?

For all of you jumping from one B4 to another B4, what are your experiences so far? Are you happier or do you wish to have jumped to midsize instead?
Mastercard Advisors How does mastercard’s consulting arm compare to B4, T2 firms, or even Accenture? Thinking of switching!
Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
Hi everyone, I’m a student interning at a MM CPA firm in the assurance practice. However, I’d like to transition into TAS at a big 4. I’ve had past internships in VC and HF, but am still having trouble getting past initial screening and have little to no alumni in TAS to reach out to when attempting to network. Has anyone had the same experience as me or can anyone help me out? Thanks!

A couple questions for the turnaround consulting fishes: 1. Is FP&A experience valuable for restructuring/turnaround consulting? I’m a CPA with experience in Big 4 FDD and a short stint in IB. Total work experience is a little over 2 years. I recently joined a RE company as a Sr FA in FP&A where I expect that I’ll be mostly doing budgeting & forecasting work. 2. If my goal is turnaround consulting, what should I focus on right now to best position myself? I appreciate any insights/guidance.
Has anyone gone from tax to fp&a? What did you have to do to get an interview? Did you need to learn any new skill? What level should I aim for if I’m a B4 1st yr senior?

How do the independence rules vary between the big 4 related to non-audit employees owning stock? I’ve heard EY takes the most conservative stance. I know Deloitte consulting is separate and doesn’t have the same restrictions as audit.

Any experienced senior managers that have moved between Big 4 firms? Can you speak towards your experience, any struggles, and opportunities in terms of partner promotion? Frankly, EY path to partner seems to be too clouded (long pipeline, no clear direction/path, uncertainty on promotion cycles, etc.) at the moment and I would like to visit all options. Appreciate the input.
Is the staffing process easier/less stressful at MBB vs Big 4 vs Accenture/Capgemini etc.? Or maybe this is just how our profession is...
