My friend has worked in a big 4 firm in India in a mid-senior role. He is now in Canada and has been working in an industry role. He wants to get back to consulting. Apparently big4’s view Indian...
See posts on here and on Reddit about people with horrible WLB. All my other friends in B4 are drowning in work. 6 months in... nothing too bad and everyone’s super respectful of my time. Am I in for a rude awakening at some point lol?
Jesus fucking Christ... why do certain managers in Big 4 need to be passive aggressive assholes #pissed
People Bitch about big 4, but imagine working the same hours as at a no name firm, ugggh
Can anyone explain the manager contract at Deloitte (i.e. can I not work at another big 4 or previous client without approval)?
MBB strategy, Big 4 Implementation 👍
Big 4 don’t care about your dreams and hopes :)
Wow PwC, sure you know where to share your expertise on the riots. Even during channel surfing, can't escape B4 influence.
Made a handy guide based on my experience dating Big 4 on and off of 🐠bowl. You’re welcome ladies 💁🏻♀️
I thought that too of some of the middle eastern and Caribbean island managers I worked with on a job once, but they turned out to be the most supportive and inquisitive. But I feel ya, sometimes you can sense if they'll be hostile toward you. But I don't give af at this point. In the end, they're still professionals working for Big 4 and probably won't dare say anything to you about it, even if it does bother them. Way I see it, ignorant people like that don't go very far working in our industry.
Anyone aware of open house hosted by the big 4's in the Chicago and Nyc area? Possibly even the time frame of when it happens?
Side hustle/independent consulting gig while on the bench? Hi fish, are you taking small consulting gigs on the side? I used to work at big 4 and now in fintech startup, there’s a need for SMEs here.
Thoughts on moving to a boutique from B4 for 20% pay bump? Everyone I've interviewed with seem nice and would be cool to work with, but the lack of some sort of organized structure scares me.
Filling background check for Big 4. Asks to list any convictions; have one from 11 years ago misdemeanor for theft. How much detail should I list in the explanation box? Have an active clearance.
Question for B4 equity partners or Accenture MDs - what percentage of the total parters/MDs are desis?
Anyone do software asset management/licensing work? Would be interested in leaving Big 4 for FAANG/industry but feel as though industry won’t pay much. Anyone care to share their experience?
Need advice. My BEC NTS is getting ready to expire haven’t opened the book. Should I take BEC in the next two weeks or cut my losses and focus on FAR for December. If I take BEC I won’t be able CONT
Hey y’all, Celeste is visiting my island tonight if anyone wants a DIY recipe from her. Haven’t seen any shooting stars yet though. H3GLL
Anyone have a good calling script for appointments? Essentially I door knock, get the phone number, and now that I want to improve the probability of successfully scheduling an appointment.
I’m a physician turned consultant who recently moved back to Toronto. Any McK/BCG/Bain people open to a coffee chat? I’m looking for insights into the local practices. Thanks!
Is it normal for junior level strategist to work alone? As a junior, I have been working alone with no guidance on briefs since the first day. This is my first job in advertising, graduated college back in December. I feel lost and this is my 3rd month in. I am trying my best.. putting in about 15 hours most days. It could just be the agency I am at, but since this is my first agency gig... I have no idea if this is the norm.
My partner and I have parents that both want to give us funding to invest in real estate. We've started to research but anyone have advice on where to start?
I lateraled to a new firm last year, but because we've been remote, I haven't met most colleagues in person. I am now in my second trimester, but I don't know how, when, or who to tell that I'm pregnant. Has anyone been in this boat? Any advice?
NFLX up 12% today on earnings 😳
I’m considering a lateral move. New firm is offering a full bonus for pro-rated hours, which is nice but I doubt I’ll hit hours due to HR/admin onboarding work, ramp up, coming on in the middle of deals, etc. Any chance I can negotiate for a guaranteed bonus regardless of hours or is that unreasonable? I don’t want to annoy the new firm but I want to at least be made whole.
Hi woodworkers! I’m pretty young (24) and therefore not super established in one spot — what’s the best way to get started in woodworking without needing to buy a bunch of equipment?

This pollen out here ain’t it, Chief.
Need some fresh meal options. Best hip spot to eat dinner in midtown / surrounding? Doesn’t need to be fancy, just delicious with atmosphere. (Killer cocktails is a plus) 🙏
Chicago neighborhoods with ball fields for playing fetch with a dog off-leash around 7am every morning? Ideally fenced like a soccer or baseball field. Humboldt park? Logan? Wicker?
