Does anyone have advice on how to pivot from a finance/ accounting role to a product/pm role? Would you suggest getting out of big 4? Is it possible to do a PM role in big 4?

If you want to stay within Big 4 and want something closer to PM, look at advisory roles at your firm. Speak with your up-line and ask them to connect you to people. Your account experience can still be valuable if you look for a Business Systems or even ERP system advisor role supporting an accounting/finance department. All of these are somewhat pretty heavy in PM and your experience will give you a competitive edge.

Need help decoding this email. Interviewed for Senior Consultant at EY - made it to partner and case study interviews. A week goes by and I get an automated rejection email, they’re “pursuing other candidates.” I asked for clarification and I get this. They could’ve said “you bombed the case” or “you asked for 150k and we top out at 120k” (I made this salary request clear during my first call with the recruiter, why push me through then?). Should I just move on? Looking for closure lol.
