How difficult is it to go back to school for a JD/LLM? I’m currently an S1 in tax at Big 4, but I’m worried my salary would still be a little “low” compared to the numbers I’ve been hearing about. (I currently make 105, but in a few years, I’m trying to reach 150/160). I’m in an HCOL, and I’ve done by BBA in Acc and my MS in Info Systems. Thank you all very much!
Received an offer from RSM as a supervisor. Coming from B4 not quite sure what the title entails (i.e., the difference between that and a manager). Currently a SA. Can someone from RSM explain? TIA!
If I were to switch into another B4 but within different LoS, will my current company terminate me immediately? (I.e. audit to advisory). Thanks
Hi everyone, looking to get into 3 of the big 4. Came out of PwC but need help. Also looking for recruiters that have been helpful in the D.C. area. I would love to get back to work but need help?

Currently an SM with a Big 4 in Toronto area. Came from industry and been in consulting for about 5 yrs. I am now strongly feeling going back to industry. Challenge in making the switch is the pay. Currently making around $225K (CAD). Background is in Tech Delivery management.

Help! Managed to sell my Big 4 analyst experience to get what sounded like a cool Research Scientist gig, but realizing I don’t know shit about original research and am completely unqualified to do this job. What do I do? Only person without a PHD on the team
How many YOE in management consulting needed to exit to industry at the manager level? I’m currently at a small CDD / Strat firm. We do great work in my opinion but no name recognition and probably less prestige than Tier 2 and Big 4 even
What level is lead consultant at Slalom? I know Slalom's career ranks are different than B4. Mostly asking about the profile and experience of people with this title.

Is Deloitte the move for PMO’s? Currently at Cap managing PMO for a large financial services account. My salary is around $68K TC with 0 chance at a bonus or real raise of significance until Manager (c level now with 2.5 YOE). 2 people under me. Working on a risk/insurance cert.

My stint here has stagnated a bit besides doing sales assist (with no chance of bonus).

Winter is coming
Why won’t the M&A people spend 3 minutes talking to the antitrust/regulatory clearance people before promising the client we’ll be able to close in a week? This will take another 30 days at least

I have googled the heck out of this question to no avail. How can I change the current Fitbit dashboard? I’ve tried clicking the “edit” button but it only allows me to delete items not add.

Hey Folks - Any one use their FSA $ towards a dietitian or nutritionist? If so, could you share your experiences? I'm considering Working Against Gravity but I don't think we can use our FSA.
