Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
How much do the B4 care about independence issues at the staff and senior level? Do ppl really have to sell all their stock in their audit clients before starting?
Had the weirdest call with someone from an offshore team… are offshore folks allowed to work for two Big 4 companies at the same time?
I am 23 YO, just graduated undergrad from a non-target school, and am currently working in tech consulting for a B4 firm. My long term goal is to land a technology operations job with a large PE fund. What steps should I be taking now to make this goal more feasible? What types of exposure should I be looking to gain? Also, I wouldn’t mind going back to b school if that’s what it will take to get in the door. Thanks in advance!
What do the big 4 give for long service award?

How does one get into advisory without already being in big 4 or having a narrow industry focus? All of the postings I see are for very specific IT related positions.
Quick question: if one of your staff is seriously underpaid, would you expect that he/she addresses it? And if so, how and when and with whom? (Big 4 consulting context)
Does anyone have tips for job searching while not knowing what you want to do? A little background about me: collegiate athlete, about 2 years in B4 tax before switching over to same B4 audit with about 6/7 months experience in audit.

I’m anticipating a few offers over the next week or so from B4 and mid tier firms. LCOL, Senior manager in speciality tax. I’ve researched some, but I assume the data is lagging the current labor shortages. Does anyone have any insight on current offers? Base comp and signing bonus. Thanks!
How do you handle when one Big 4 firm is trying to move really quickly through the interview process but I am also progressing through the process with an MBB as well that I really want to see through to the end. At the end of the day I don’t want to lose the Big 4 firm if MBB doesn’t come through.

Staff at big 4, never see my wife during the weekdays who is in bed asleep most nights I get home. I know she’s lonely and misses me, but supports me and doesn’t try to complain. We are growing ...
I recently got a verbal from B4 firm but have yet to receive the written (going on 2 weeks now). I have recently received another verbal offer from a different B4 firm. How should I negotiate with the original firm for more $? What would you say? This is my first time switching jobs so fairly new.
How common is it for associate partners to lateral into MBB? Anybody willing to do a referral for a healthcare AP from Big 4 firm? What’s the interview process like?
