As an FYI caveat most of the US based recommendations here. Accenture strat is variable in Europe with some really strong groups (and regions), but since it is a lot smaller than the us practice I would say depends on the area (eg cfo&EV or pharma). We technically operate globally but the region/sub region in Europe really is important more so than in North America.

Equally strong brand names. If salary hike is substantial, move on. It’s pretty common in Switzerland to change jobs every 2-3 years and in my experience is not frowned upon that much.

I think Accenture levels, at least if we look at titles (e.g. Manager), require more experience than the equivalent levels at the Big 4.

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft

Exited to industry in May and already looking to leave. However the other person I'm working with is going for maternity leave soon. We are working together as PMO for a huge transformation project and I technically can't leave until she is back because there is no one else to step in.... I feel like it's not ethical to leave them now but i can't take it anymore. They rushed me to join them and I didn't know that was because she was leaving soon.. :( What are your thoughts ?

My husband, seems to be still in the stage of transitioning from bachelor to husband, like he takes out trash, cook once per week, do laundry (no folding)when I ask. Not sure if that’s what it takes for me to predict.
