Deloitte is giving mid-year hikes. Is this also happening at other consulting firms, big 4?
Any big4 lawyers who transitioned to the IRS office of chief counsel (national office)? How do you like compared to big 4? I am particularly concerned about having to be in person (at the office) 2-3 days a week.
If you are working industry, 40 hours a week with a competitive pay and left B4 tax - can you share your new job title? Not sure what is out there that I could apply for.
The b4 life is not for me and is actually affecting my family (mom of 2 kiddos). I’m looking into something with true flexibility and less than 50 hours a week. Any advice?
EY - been seeing a few open roles for ‘Strategy & Transactions’ lately such as ‘Transaction Strategy and Executin’. Are these EY-P/PJP or something more akin to transaction services/vals/M&A integration? Currently at big 4 strategy with focus on CDDs and business model redesign.
PwC Assurance mgr at big 4,about to make Sr mgr. I am hating my life, job and acctg. Don't know how I got here tbh. I'm thinking about switching to strategy consulting / analytics but I realize this might mean I need to "start from scratch" so to speak. Am I better off to exit to industry and try to climb the ranks to director /c suite in hopes that I see more mgmt strategy / operations /analytics as I move up? Or am I better to switch and climb different side of big 4 again? Pwc EY KPMG Deloitte
Anybody in here move from Big 4 straight out of undergrad to MBB within 2 years? I’ve heard contrasting opinions about how realistic the move is, so I’m looking for more insights.
Deloitte's poor management & culture is starting to wear on me. Prob some residual resentment at how layoffs were handled tbh. Has anyone left D for another Big 4 & care to share if grass is greener?
New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?
Looking for open opportunities for a senior B4 auditor to transition to Restructuring/Turnaround or M&A (TAS) consulting.
Anyone open to connect and provide referral? Please dm :)
Had to work all day yesterday and most of today - does the lost disconnect day get credited back to us here? I know other big 4 will credit back lost firm holidays
Moving from US to Canada. What salary should I target for M/SM roles at Big 4 and outside? Is 150k CAD reasonable?
Anyone still in this bowl? Been 9 months since the last post! I’ll start- how are your firms’ O&G practices performing? Big 4 here... we have a pretty heavy bench.
What consulting firms sponsor MBA? I know MBB/ most tier 2’s do - what about big 4/ other firms?
Hello, I am a Linux system engineer and have been working in Oracle engineered systems from past 10 years. I got some exposure to oracle cloud but it is so difficult to get more exposure in oracle projects to build knowledge and my experience. In the Job portals , its so rare recruiters asking for oracle cloud. Looks like canada do not have much oracle projects. Hence I learned AWS. Want to make use of my knowledge but how?B4 Advisory teams do not have good oracle practice. Agree?
I'm a CPA with public (big 4 financial services) and industry experience (tech). I'm looking to re-locate to the Southern California to be near my wife’s family. Do you know of any opportunities?
Manager with a big 4 and finally have enough liquid cash to make some meaningful market investments. I am admittedly a newbie to trading and honestly don’t have a lot of interest in self-managing but would like a brokerage and/or CFP guided account (that understands/can accommodate independence requirements).
Any recommendations on brokerage or service to get started? Looking at Vanguard Personal Advisor service at the moment… Thanks for any advise
Anyone from the big 4 type firms (KPMG etc.) that can give insight into what it’s like working for them?
I am curious about Protiviti. Any partners move from Big 4, IBM or ACN? I have heard it’s very collaborative. What about their pipeline and clients?
What's the deal with analyst and sr analyst roles? My company says it's the great resignation, but I'm really struggling hiring this level.
For those considering this role, what makes it appealing or not appealing?

Applied to HSW and Sloan and only got into Sloan. Feeling a little bummed out, like I’m not good enough. I know that’s petty and I should be grateful, but should I take Sloan? Post MBA I want to be in MBB or Impact VC

Hey guys ,
I was a fresher when i joined wipro
My manager has given me rating 1 in confirmatory appraisal on may 18 may which happened after completion of 1 year at wipro.
I raised the issue of rating with my manager immediately , he convinced me not to worry , ratings are already submitted , I asked him to resubmit cause i don't deserve rating 1
So he said he will look if that is possible but didn't changed .Now after 3 months they are pressurizing me to put a resignation,what should i do?
I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school. Which is best? A law degree or a master's in international relations? Those are where my interests lie. I keep reading that JDs are valued in compliance but am wondering if a different graduate program is better for my goals. I already plan to obtain the CAMS certification. Thank you!

To be fair Accenture has done an abnormal amount of talent decisions this year -
(1) added an additional promotion cycle that was effective 2/1,
(2) had a much larger mid year cycle than typical
(3) during that midyear cycle a lot of folks got pay corrections to either compensate for lower bands that came out of FY20 outcomes or market adjustments in some areas where folks saw fairly sizeable increases
All that to say - there’s a lot more to be done. We’ve heard that we have matched BCG pay for UG/MBA hires and everyone is patiently waiting to see how that trickles out to everyone else.
This is just a perfectly structured answer. Concise argument with 3 supporting points. Recognition of more work to be done. God I've been here too long.
Deloitte also gave much smaller raises in June. EY and PwC raises were quite a bit higher across the board. Seems like D is playing catch-up (for once).
KPMG got a mid-year adjustment a couple months ago
Happened this year
Accenture gave targeted mid year raises in June - the ones I heard of (including mine) were really good. Didn’t stop some people from leaving though.
Other Big 4 any changes to your retirement plans / pensions / 401K?
