Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
We not top Vault’s list, but #1 for MBA job satisfaction. Considering Vault’s data skewed by the huge number of Big 4 consultants who haven’t heard of ATK, I’m pretty happy with this stat. https://poetsandquants.com/2017/09/27/the-best-and-worst-companies-for-mbas/2/
Deloitte is temporarily pausing the PERM application. Just curious what is the condition of the other Big 4 or consulting frims？
Joined a big 4 recently, need some help from people in sox testing field. Finding it hard to cope up, please DM me.
How is the risk practice at MBB? Do you work on the same work as big 4 risk? Where do most people come from.. ie ex big 4, internally trained, ex bankers etc. What would help a candidate from a big 4 risk transition to a position in risk at mbb? I'm going to be entering a big 4 in risk, but would like to switch to mbb at some point in my life.
As an attorney in B4, learning SUMIFS and Xlookup has been life-changing from my archaic ways lol.
Any B4 looking for D365 FO Consultants? Supply chain focused, looking to explore opportunities
Does MBB in particular, McKinsey do case interviews for experienced hires (~4 years experience at big 4/ACN)?
Get calls for HR screening from other big 4 within their consulting practice and I do well and answer everything they need to know but never hear back. What could I possibly be doing wrong?
Anyone moved from core tax to M&A as a manager (internal transfer, to other big 4, etc)? I know the things they do are completely different, I wonder if it’s even possible to move as a manager?
Do you think layoffs would be more probable at a big 4/firm with over 2k staff or boutiques? Why?
Has anyone moved from big 4 to Mgt. Consulting? I want to apply to McK or BCG & heard you have to be an excel expert or super technical to even be considered. I'm a Sr. and would start as a first-yr.
What is the toughest challenge for a Consultant to transition from big 4 to MBB consulting? I was fortunate enough to get an MBB offer as an experienced Consultant and want to make sure I hit the ground running. Thanks! Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
Currently work in security in a “next tier below a big 4” consulting firm. I’ve got three different options currently to make a jump, 2 cloud service provider GRC roles in industry (1 smaller, 1 large, both reputable in the cloud space) and a big 4 cyber advisory roles. All about the same compensation. Any advice on narrowing down the choice to pick the best option to help growing my skill set and future career??

Any MBB consultants here that did not go to a Top Tier college? I didn’t come close to going to a top tier school, but have 6 years of big 4 experience and a CPA. Wondering if it’s worth a shot
5th year tax partner at a top 10 firm, northeast region. I’ve been nonequity so far with a shift to equity this coming year. Current book is just under $3m. Am curious about how my compensation stacks up against big 4 and other top 10 firm partners from same region. Feel free to dm me if it makes it better. I have no problem sharing that I’m at just over $300k.
Do the other Big 4 firms have roles similar to PwC’s COE - dedicated service centers that support multiple Core engagement teams, while focusing on specific business processes?

I'm getting rolled off a project that I was warned would be my last if I was rolled off. How different is the process of getting fired versus getting laid off?
So proud to be at PwC. Support for our black community, no lay-off, still have bonus, still have promotion.
Who decides the compensation for big 4 experienced hires? Is it the interviewing partners?

I have always taught my students that life is a path of actions and consequences that are a result of those prior actions; positive actions positive consequences, negative actions negative consequences. I change the vocabulary from "I'm giving you a ___" to "You're earning a ___ with your actions." I start my first day with this lesson and have frequent reminders of this throughout the year. This has always been a successful strategy.

COVID led me to leave a T2 consulting firm with only six months on paper to show. Really been having trouble figuring out what I can pitch myself for. (Pre-MBA background is hospitality, eek!) Ideas?
Cross posting this but could use the female perspective — Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
Got almost 8y exp at a B4 in consulting. Kinda bored of my work cos I feel I’m not learning new technical skills. But I’m growing more into SM role. Should I seek a lateral move or stay & climb up?
