Curious to get thoughts from Big 4 and BAH folks. I have a specific interest in Public Sector - better to try to move to PS within my current firm or try to move to BAH due to their PS reputation?

KPMG has a good PS practice. I'm in it :) come join us

I'd say the PS practice is strong and they are actively building it. They actually partner a lot with commercial in DC.

like

I'd say stick to Big 4 / ACN probably at least a little closer to commercial salary and at least some true MC work versus just staff aug.

like

Any specific reason on PS? They use grades so there's no real income benefit

like

Yeah I figured that, it's not about the income. Just an interest in working for government clients (call me crazy). But reasoning aside I'm looking for perspective on the best strategy to get there. 😁

Federal or State / Local?

Federal. And yeah @kpmg2 good point - I'm starting to network around. I figured it would be easier to transition within PwC but based on response rate so far maybe not 😂🤔

Plenty of MC work at BAH as well. Just depends on where you are and your interest. More and more transactional work emerging.

like

BAH does have a better rep. Figure out what work PWC does for PS first you may not like it.

@PwC OP. I'm in PS. Could make a burner email for you on contact

@PwC2 Yes that would be great - would love to chat with you and learn about what we're doing in PS!!!
