Need some advice on career path change from a QA Lead to Scrum Master/Program Manager. Currently working for a Big 4 firm leading multiple teams for my project. I’ve been doing QA job for a while now and feel like I need to advance my career to the next level outside of QA world. I could think of Non Technical Scrum Master/Program Manager roles. Current Base Salary - $135K What can I expect in the job market for me? Appreciate your time and advise.
Is anyone else at B4 getting slaughtered? Wait listed everywhere so far despite 760 and above average stem GPA at all schools i applied to. Leadership is probably a weak point for me ill admit but certainly not non existant and I know my ECs are above average. I feel completely blindsided
If already at b4 and don’t mind getting into one of their consulting arms like EY-P, is it even worth it to get MBA? Would think you could network your way over or find a rotation program. I would think MBA would be more to get in with MBB but someone correct me if I am off?
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?
Hi guys :) Glad to join fishbowl and this community. Guys I have an offer of 14.41 ctc from a big 4 (11 is fixed). Technology-Microsoft Dynamics 365(I am a functional consultant in SCM and HR; Relevant exp: 3 yrs & Total exp: 4 yrs). My interviews in IBM are done and I am waiting for the salary discussion with HR. What is the likely offer that I am going to get? Any idea? (My expectation is 16.5 lpa ctc). I will adjust my expectations as per replies here. Any response is highly appreciated :)
Which Big 4 is the best to be at regarding work culture and benefits? Especially during these tough times.
Any insight on an independent agency in NYC with a strong analytics capability? Iv worked at every one of the big 4 holding companies and they all suck. ESPECIALLY Publicis!
Any big 4 new hires completely lost and overwhelmed? Being virtual and starting during busy season has been super rough. I honestly don’t think this is for me.
I need some suggestions/input. I am working in B4 tax compliance but second guessing if I want to keep doing compliance for the rest of my career in PA. Options are to stay in compliance and get promoted to manager soon (next few months but with a small raise to salary due to COVID) or try to switch to a specialty tax group (i.e ITS) and delaying manager promotion for a few years because of the learning curve.
Let’s talk salary in different accounting roles. Especially PA, Industry, and consulting. I’ll start. Big 4 Experienced Associate FSA 70K in MCOL. Under 1 year of experience. This is what I came in with.
Looking for job at big 4 or at public Accounting. Anyone hiring? I graduated last year with good GPA, finished CPA,and have some work experience. Open for networking to get some tips and advice.Thanks
Currently a tax manager at big 4. Been a manager in my specialty area for 2.5 years and was not promoted. I can move now to a reputable mid tier firm as a senior manager with a sizable pay bump now.
I cringe every time I see LinkedIn post from new grad saying “I am so excited to get started at my dream job with B4 firm”
How would you advise one to prepare for a Big 4 audit internship? I’m comfortable with ExceL and have good communication skills. I haven’t taken an audit class yet.
When did it hit you that working in the Big 4 is a dirty political game? That everyone smiles in your face but they would all put a knife in your back at any given moment if expedient for them?
Anyone know what the salary range is for an international tax cpa, S1 or S2, at a big 4 in Nashville?
4.0 GPA from unimpressive undergrad institution in middle America (outside top 100), 720 GMAT, 5 years of B4 consulting. Male. Chances for M7?

On today's call I'm asked a question directly by the client and I have two other people jump in and talk over me and give a different answer for me. Teamwork at its finest.
Anyone know any good resources for learning to recruit out of consulting? So much info online about getting into consulting, not much about finding the best exit ops
You know your manager gets you when she actually tells you to take that hot receptionist out on a date ;) 😈
Don't know about the rest of you but my new year begins today. Plan on bleeding the bank account starting today 🤑
Dear Uber driver, did you just seriously call me asking where I am? What was the point of me painstakingly putting in my address for 5 solid seconds?
My mom always told me never to trust a man without a watch. But who wears watches anymore? Good reasons for a consultant to wear one? (making an impression on clients, etc. What brand or model?
