From an outsider perspective they’re all the same... If in your shoes I would focus on the people you connect with the best, and which firm is strongest in the practice area that aligns closest to your interests

They all think they’re the best. And from an outside perspective, MBB still is the only one with real prestige

Depends on the group you’re being hired to. All of them are doing great work but not all of the groups in Big 4. Really depends on your Leadership, how explorative they are.

Don’t worry about prestige. As others have mentioned, the Big 4 are all essentially good firms in their own right ...but some have practices/capabilities that are more advanced in specific industries. Determine what you want your speciality/focus area to be, and find the firm that aligns to your interests.

Differences in perceptions between the big 4 are very small and vary by geography, so don't worry about it too much. I'd just rank by revenue: PwC, EY, KPMG

For fcuk sake get over yourself. Prestige is what you’re worried about now? This is the kind of questions that comes from people who tie their self worth to things as mundane as the status of the organization they work for.

Question about referrals. If someone you don’t personally know reaches out from your network asking for a referral (alum from same school or someone who worked at the same company you did), do you do it, or no?

I’m a relatively new college hire and recently brushed up my LinkedIn. I started having several headhunters reaching out about different opportunities. It seems like they usually don’t name the actual firm they’re working for or much other relevant detail. I guess it’s because the headhunters are an independent staffing firm? Anyways, any recommendations on how seriously I should take these type of messages or whether to get on the phone with them just to check it out? Could be MBB I guess lol
