Hi fishes :) Need some suggestions from the PWC peeps. My directorial round with PWC is scheduled for tomorrow. Any suggestions please? What are the probable questions will be? I've asked for 12LPA but they said the budget is 9LPA..I've 6.5yrs of experience as a BA & scrum master (ctc : 6.55 LPA) What do you all suggest? Shall I consider pwc as It's a part of BIG 4 and other facilities and brand-value or capegemini/Cerner india (the pay scale will be higher most probably) Thanks in advance.
Currently making 99k as an SA with no MBA. Got an offer from another big 4 for 130k with same title. Hoping for promotion to manager in the next year or two. Should I jump?
I'm thinking of leaving Big 4 to go to a boutique firm. I have 2 years of experience. They are bringing me in at the Senior level. Smaller market. Ill be doing consulting on tax credits. They asked me for a salary range- is 75k-85k reasonable? or is that too low?
Big 4 -> Software Sales? So I actually start in advisory with a diff b 4 firm tommorow as an experienced staff, I got contacted by a company that sells accounting software mostly close automation etc. they have big clients and got series D funding, I think I’d be a good fit but I don’t know how to judge these huge life decisions when they come so quick. I don’t HATE what I do now but I hate the cpa stuff and I think I might leave, thoughts?
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
Does Chartis have alt travel? I know they have a different travel schedule than big 4, so wondered how that works

As a srn con in gov big 4 (2yoe), what level/ pay should I aim for in gov and in private sector strategy/ business analyst divisions?
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
Has anyone looked at the CFA qualification? Currently a 2nd year Senior in audit at B4. Looking to pivot away from accounting and more into finance. Don't want to pay $$$ for MBA
Do big 4 firms care about where you work? Say you want to work remotely in a different city, is there tax implications (they make you report your physical work location)
If I have an offer from a competing B4 dated 6months ahead, do I need to notify when I accept/sign or that 6months later?
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.
Has anyone moved from audit to recruiting within the big 4? How did you do it? How is the job?

Work at a hold co and tired of hearing the ceo’s are in it with us and taking cuts? I call BS on that! They are only reducing salary and will still earn millions.

WPP Mark Read £2,594,000 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 1.88% reduction. Publicis Arthur Sadoun €3,265,800 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 4.6% reduction.

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?

COVID-19 Refunds - Anybody getting refunds for prepaid monthly services- after care/daycare, nanny services, etc.? In the area we live in the day cares are just not giving any refunds, so unethical.
If my client expressed great appreciation to my work, can I ask for tips? Maybe we should normalize the tipping culture across all service areas. Just a random thought
