Folks at FAANG, how doable is moving from Big 4 consulting to FAANG? Are consultants looked down upon or will it not matter as long as you have the tech skills?

Consultants are not looked down upon but the type of knowledge that you have will factor in both when you're getting hired and when you're transitioning into the actual team.

Steve Jobs once claimed that Apple never hired consultants. Hopefully, he was exaggerating or at least not speaking for everyone in FAANG.

For senior managers, what made you stay at big 4 audit. I'm on the verge of resigning because I really don't like this job. I don't have the interest to listen to client's take about their financials or their business or any of their issues. I don't like having to resolve pointless spelling and gramatical comments by partners or going through the same finanacial statement more than 5 times. I hatr having to resolve issues caused by associates or their performance issues. Continued...
