A bit of the Hallo likely rubs off, but I also heard from 2 sides that recruiters increasingly lol at McK candidates like they look at Big4 candidates: they spend much more time digging into what they have actually done vs just relying on the brand name.

As should always be the case.

Yes

Probably a slight halo effect in the same way that any role in a brand name (like Google), but obviously not to the same extent since the work is not the same.

Big4 as Associate or Top 10 as Senior

My career goal is to stay in TAS at least until Manager and then maybe go the consulting or corp dev route. Currently A1 in TAS at a top regional firm at 63k. I have the opportunity to jump ship to Big4 as an A2 for 83k in TAS or go to a top 10 TAS (BDO, RSM, GT) for 85k as a senior. I'm in a HCOL.
Question is, should I take an A2 spot at big4 or a senior role at the top 10 firm? Any insight is appreciated, thanks!
