I think you got it flipped, big 4 usually have a wide array of groups and industries where as mid Tier don’t have as many

The pigeon hole thing is a lie mid tier firms tell you to try and get you to switch. B4 don’t let you hop every month so you learn the fundamentals of your day job. If you’re working on 10 different sectors as a staff then you’re not learning any meaningful industry specific knowledge anyway. As you progress, you definitely build a focus on certain things but your value proposition is as an expert in your field(s), not someone who knows a little if everything
