Current S1 here. Is it okay if my resume experience is just: B4 Internship > Associate > Senior? (All in the same firm/practice) Never done other internships. The only other thing I could include is a student assistant job I had in college. Not sure if that's even relevant. Guess just the progression at this 1 firm is enough? Just looks a bit incomplete on the resume.
I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?
Been here several years. Only just clicked to me how predatory Big 4 are. Business model is to use cheap, underpaid labor from college grads who can't go elsewhere or pay debts. Churn em and burn em.
Those of you that left Big 4...how long did it take you to find another job? I physically can’t take this place anymore and thinking about giving my two weeks tomorrow. I can live off savings for a co

Are there good exits in Australia other than big 4 banks? Market is so much smaller than US 😞
From one Desi to fellow Desi reaching out for help ! I have had some luck with MBB firms but failed to convert. I am currently Senior Manager at big 4 with end to end SC experience. I will highly appreciate if folks from MBB/exMBB could spare time to provide me some guidance.
Has anyone moved from audit to recruiting within the big 4? How did you do it? How is the job?
When you explain to your non-accounting friends what the Big 4 is and they say, "oh sounds like the Ivy League for accounting firms" >>>>
Has anyone done an international rotation at a big 4 while married? If so, curious how the comp was compared to what it was in US and what your spouse did for that period of time
Debating on leaving Big 4. Not exactly sure what I would want to do outside Big 4... any ideas for research areas?
I got a $8,000 raise for year end and promotion, and no bonus. I just got written offer from other big 4 for 40k more then I am making at Deloitte.
People who have transferred from Big 4 into IB, was it worth it? Has it met your expectations thus far? Very interested to learn more.
First time potential lateral here. Is it par for the course to provide a list of matters during the interview process for conflicts? I am wondering if it would be acceptable to hold off on disclosing that information should an offer for a job arise.
Anyone able to land interview at Amazon without referral? Saw a posting that I am super interested in but have no leads into the hiring team there
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?

How do you know when to sell a stock? I took a gamble and put my internship money on one stock, am up ~8x but its now >>50% of my net worth. Should I sell now? If so, how much?
Not financially savvy (learning). I want to set aside $2500 a paycheck for a house down payment in 18-36 months. Does it make more sense for me to contribute the $2.5k to my 401k monthly and withdraw in 2 years, or just set aside $2.5k into a savings account? Already maxed ESPP. My end goal is to buy a house.
Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
Isn’t a significant portion of airlines and hotels revenue from corporate travel? Would they be able to survive, if consulting firms adopt a limited-travel model forever?
New to this. Is it typical for a firm to ask a staff to do the work of a senior for a year to show that they are ready for a promotion?

For the TPM final round, can you get system design questions for non SWE or analytics domains? I was told there could be 4-5 rounds, and 2 rounds with SWE/PM etc. My domain is supply chain, so trying to prep accordingly. Is it possible to have all interviews be with TPMs/PgMs?
several interview rounds. Positive (glowing) feedback all around. Im then told "they" just need to check w/the CEO...a short time later "sorry, we've decided to go in a different direction"...
