MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4. That said seeing some of my Big 4 friends make it to SMs in 7 years so MBB needs to amp up the meritocracy based promotions. Curious what would be the comp for a 1st year consulting partner in Big 4?
Currently interviewing and looking for inputs on the salary range for Senior Consultant (S1/2) in EY Business Consulting - Supply chain based out of Houston, TX. No MBA. 3.5 YOE (No B4 experience).
As an accountant in b4. I truly want to go back military as an officer for rest of my career. Life would be much better and as well as the pay............
What are the salary levels in Big 4 consulting? From MBA stats, intro pay seems to be the same as MBB. But on FB, I’m seeing people say Manager level pay is lower than 1st year Consultant salary at MBB. Which is it?
Would experience in big 4 FDD make one a competitive candidate for FP&A or other roles in a FAANG several years down the line?
Any recommendations for apartments to live in Seattle? Moving to Seattle and joining BiG 4. Excited 😊
Need some help in evaluating some job postings on LinkedIn and could use some help! 1) Lender Due Diligence Senior Consultant at a MC firm (ie A&M, FTI, etc) 2) TAS FDD Senior at a non big 4 audit firm (it RSM, BDO, etc) What is different between these roles? Are exit ops the same?
Hi all! I’m an MBA Candidate with 3.5 years on H1B. What consulting firms are still hiring internationals among MBB and Big 4?
Big 4 is a high school ! I like to play :)
Hi fishers, I am a recent graduate looking for a job in Big 4. Will anybody be able to refer me? Thanks in advance for the big help:)
Can’t figure out why my application for an FDD senior role at a big 4 got rejected. CPA and prior b4 audit. Wondering if I should apply if jobs open up again, but also wondering if I need more related experience?
Thoughts on MorganFranklin consulting? -pay -culture, etc I heard pay is same as big 4 with an extra profit share bonus. Culture is more self starter, less rank and file like big 4.
Hiring question - do you think you get a job at big 4 without a college degree? For example, someone dropped out of college after 2 years and acquired a few certs and a couple of years experience
For those of you that left b4 and got a job in finance or fp&a, is the grass really greener or do you end up hating your job and go for an MBA to do something else?
Anyone aware of any tech/strategy related startup’s that hire folks on H1B? Currently at a Big 4, but would like to experience the startup culture before pursuing an MBA. Any thoughts? Would it be sensible to make the move pre-MBA?
B4 Manager (40+) from India tells his team of millennials that he expects them to work long hours because he never had weekends to enjoy back in India when he was their age. Is it a valid expectation?
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
How much notice do you give when you’re leaving? What mechanisms do you take into account — for example I have some folks reporting to me etc. Also the client project is just getting started. I feel bad about having onboarded and then I leave just like that. How many weeks notice do you give when leaving and what are the right things to do to avoid burning bridges?
May have been asked a bunch of times - how are you taking care of your mental health while being secluded? I really miss my friends and family but recognize that being careful is necessary right now

I know many people do an MBA after 2 years at MBB. Can you do a PhD instead? Does the firm encourage its employees to pursue a PHD? I am currently prepping for interviews, and I am wondering whether I should mention or not that my long term goal is to pursue a PHD and that my experience at MBB will allow me to gain more industry knowledge and identify the biggest problems faced by companies/governments
I’m at a place where I’m overpaid for my level AND got a 12% surprise raise. Places that pay you do exist, don’t settle or think that “all agencies are just stingy”
Interview tomorrow at EY. Will this help me get hired?
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
PwC FS - do you guys know how they're determining layoffs? People who are in projects are getting the boot which is scary. Apparently there will be more rounds and this week was just the beginning.
For people who recently lateraled, how did you go about negotiating a signing bonus? For context, I’m a rising 6th year in the finance group. I was approached about the position directly, so the firm isn’t paying a recruiter if they hire me. Any advice would be appreciated. It would be to go from a V20 to a V10 (not Kirkland). I don’t have competing offers as leverage, but I also wasn’t actively looking to leave
Hello 🐬🐟🐋 I have offer from MAHLE - Pune How is the work culture ? Jon security ? Annual appraisal % ?
So one of these guys is a 7x convicted felon. The other is in charge of the HHS and the Covid numbers being reported. Nothing to see here.
McCann Health… More like McCann HELL to me 😪
I teach Economics and Personal Finance at a specialty school. I use NGPF for personal finance but I am seeking Economics lessons for G&T
I accepted an offer and I’m still interviewing. Wondering how bad it would be if I rescinded 🤷♀️
After months of networking and trying to break into consulting, I managed to secure one interview. I was really nervous at the beginning of the interview so I started off a bit shaky and didn’t come up with the perfect structure, but did really well on the rest. Today I got the rejection email and their feedback was that I need to work on the structure. I had worked on my structure for so long and I only messed up because I was nervous. I feel so defeated with no more interviews. Wtf do I do? 😓
