For those having rentals in India. How you handling when the tenant is disagreeing to pay rents due to covid even though they are employed with big 4 and have no compensation impact? They are not budging. Any guidance how to deal?
If I have an offer from a competing B4 dated 6months ahead, do I need to notify when I accept/sign or that 6months later?
Do big 4 firms care about where you work? Say you want to work remotely in a different city, is there tax implications (they make you report your physical work location)
I'm thinking of leaving Big 4 to go to a boutique firm. I have 2 years of experience. They are bringing me in at the Senior level. Smaller market. Ill be doing consulting on tax credits. They asked me for a salary range- is 75k-85k reasonable? or is that too low?
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
How is IBM Enterprise Strategy? WLB, Comp vs B4, team culture, work overall. Appreciate any insight- thanks!
As a srn con in gov big 4 (2yoe), what level/ pay should I aim for in gov and in private sector strategy/ business analyst divisions?
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
Hi This is Mriganka Das working on Big Data Analytics in Nomura . My total experience is 6+ yrs and relevant in Big Data is 2.8 yrs .If there is any openings in any of the Big 4 pls do let me know..
Is a firm generally better than the other in Big 4 FDD/Corporate finance? (Better culture, better perceived by exits, better pay, etc)
I am working for 12-14 hours a day in a non client facing role at one of the big 4. What are some of the exit opportunities I can think of in the next 1-2 years? I want to have a 9-6 job with decent pay.
Are partners in IBM like SM in big 4?
I’m a staff at a midsize firm. Only been here for 10 months but want to go to big 4. Most big 4 career pages are only hiring senior positions… will I have any luck securing a position preferably in audit by end of year?
Big 4 -> Software Sales? So I actually start in advisory with a diff b 4 firm tommorow as an experienced staff, I got contacted by a company that sells accounting software mostly close automation etc. they have big clients and got series D funding, I think I’d be a good fit but I don’t know how to judge these huge life decisions when they come so quick. I don’t HATE what I do now but I hate the cpa stuff and I think I might leave, thoughts?
Are there any Israeli fishes here that can share their perspective on how unionizing has affected the Big 4 in Israel? Currently this may be the only country where big 4 accountants have union membership & collective bargaining agreements, so I'm curious what the motivations were and whether you feel it's been worth it https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-ey-first-israeli-accounting-firm-to-sign-collective-labor-agreement-1001195205

What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
https://forms.gle/VvBDU9HqGKNq322R7 Since everyone always seems interested in this kind of thing, I made a comp survey. I'll leave it open for a week or two and then compile some results. Let me know if there are any questions you really want added or if anything is messed up or wrong.
Advice for finding client-side creative opportunities? Especially where I could work remotely? I know how to find normal advertising jobs, but I think I need a little break from this ad scene/culture.
Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
In your opinion, what can companies do to make racial diversity in management and corporate leadership positions a priority?
I have constant anxiety over being laid off or fired. To the point that I’m starting to feel paranoid, reading into everything around me. I need some tips on how to deal with this as it’s crushing me.
Been thinking about MBB lately and was wondering if anyone had any advice on when to make initiate the switch. Have an MPH and been in Life sciences/Healthcare consulting for a year now
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Does Deloitte belong in MBB? DMBB?

🐠 what’s the better exit opp: Deloitte digital at a manager level or KPMG at a director level? Currently at a manager level with 10+ yrs exp and a Masters. Assuming comp is roughly the same.
Does anyone know if ZS Associates sponsors H1B transfer or GC? Their website says no and the online application portal screens out those who need sponsorship but then I also have heard of cases with H1B sponsorship so not too sure. Thanks!
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
