For advice re. The interview you will find a ton pf things online. The importance of the LP and the STAR method but there is also on this bowl a current Amazonian who has written a thorough post with more details. Regarding the application, i would suggest to use your network for a referral but to also ensure that your resume shows alignment of your experience with the expectations for the role you would apply for.

Thoughts on Big 4 transfer pricing?


I've been looking for salaries for various position with Big 4 assurance, but information is all over the place. So after some research here, reddit, goingconcern, glassdoor, etc. I've put this info together: !! The salary grid below is for Big 4 Audit, HCOL (NYC,SF), gross amounts without bonus !! Of course they can be higher or lower by a few k's on each position depending on impact tier, but I tried to look for average amounts. If you have information please post it so we can update.

After starting my new job last week I still think about the fact that no one from PwC wished me luck. As soon as I put in my notice I didn’t hear from a single person. I wish I didn’t give them 9 years of my life.


Wow PwC, sure you know where to share your expertise on the riots. Even during channel surfing, can't escape B4 influence.

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?


Switching to big 4


Working at a mid-sized firm but starting to feel like its turning into big 4. Our new scheduler (ex-B4) has been referring to all staff as "resources". Even our HR lead came from B4.


White supremacy is real in these firms, especially big 4 accounting.


How hard would it really be to move up to a CISO role at the big 4 firms? It seems that they have multiple different CISO’s for different countries. How difficult is it to get a position at the same firm in a different country assuming you get your citizenship/authorization and all that.

I got call from HR of one of Big 4 firm. She had such an irritating tone for a HR. When I told my expected CTC, she went on to persuade me to quote lower number since they don't have budget. I even came down to a point since I wanted to get Big 4 Opportunity. She kept on saying a number which was not even 15% of my current package. Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs

My gf and I are early twenties. She lives in the city with a friend. I live at home. Most of her income goes towards rent and eating out/doing stuff in the city, and I save/invest aggressively, so we have quite a gap in net worth. I try to tell her to cut back on spending but she says it’s what makes her happy. Any one had a similar experience/ have advice?
