I jumped to midsize and am not loving everyone’s distaste for excel. They like manually typing crap out instead of using referential formulas. I recommend asking about this in interviews to make sure you’re not going back in time.

Right but they shouldn’t be fostering a culture that’s all technical knowledge and no technology. They should recognize that they need both even if they don’t fully understand how we got to the same result.

Went from RSM to industry. Was sad to see the EY team helping us and my entire company was running on hookup/vlookup. My point being, it all depends on your team. Some people just don't like change at all.

Yep I was doing all that too but had to dumb everything down

Curious as well

Mid sized firms use Gosystems to print K1s. Still trying to wrap my head around that one

This might be for the Exit Opportunity bowl, but wondering if anyone had insight into the Cigna Enterprise Strategy group? I don't have many contacts in the US and don't have a sense for what the internal strategy roles at the large health insurers are like, but I saw a posting recently and was immediately tempted. I'm at ~7 YOE made up of Big 4 and now at a boutique firm.

I have an offer at KMPG as a Manager in their tax group and am now a supervisor at a mid sized firm and have been told I would make manager this next year. Can anyone give me some insight into culture and work life balance at the larger firms? And any pros and cons of moving to big 4. My main concern is flexibility from March -15 to end of April as I’ve already committed to going to weddings or bachelor parties a lot of weekends in that time frame and am concerned that would be an issue at big 4

I need advice. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. 3 years ago I left a small contracting company that I was at for 2.5 years. Because I had an offer with Big 4 & I was chasing brand on my resume - which did open up lots of doors for me. That small company was still to this day one of the best I had worked for. Smart, caring people. Pay was ok, but they had amazing WLB like 9/80. After Big 4, I started at GH for 3 months. Hated it. Quit and left to industry where I’m at now. Continued in comments

I am working on a job posting for a remote tax senior role. I am seeing salaries on here mentioned everywhere from 80k to 110k for big 4. I am assuming these jobs posting require massive overtime. We are a small firm under 10 people that prioritizes work life balance. We have a 35 to 40 hour cap during tax season and 30 to 35 hours during the off-season. My gut was going to post it at a salary of $55,000 and bonuses of $20,000 but now I am hesitant. Thoughts?

I’m a BME that initially wanted to go to med school but decided that my interests were more in the healthcare strategy world (unfortunately super late as it was senior year in feb when recruiting cycles were either closing or closed). Ended up taking a b4 tech consulting role as it was one of the few offers I got and also because it’s some type of consulting role. I was just wondering how I should position myself so I can exit into a more strategy focused role preferably in HC after 1-2 yoe.
