Can someone please tell me why KPMG is on the receiving end of every consulting meme/joke/roast? I get it’s smallest by revenue, but is there really a significant disparity in quality and or reputation within the big 4?

Can MBB alumni give referrals?
Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!
Got reached out to by a recruiter for a Principal Consultant Role at Infosys. Does anyone know what the equivalent t level is at big 4 firms and any insight into the role ? Thanks!
Thoughts you'd give to a high performer at a small firm in the suburbs considering jumping to b4 in a big (and new) city? Risky move? Chance of a lifetime?
In a Big4 deal Analytics group that’s not premier with no path to partner... should I try to move to MBB/T2 to gain traditional consulting experience or try for tech/FAANG... I just wanna make money
Do MBB also consult companies like Google, Apple, goldman Sachs, etc on strategy topics? I seem to never have heared...😐

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

While I understand that PwC is actively having layoffs, does anyone else feel like the entire industry is in a downward trend, with the economy right behind it. What is everyone doing to hedge?
On a project doing a lot of the communication, PowerPoints and helping out with the deliverables. But how do I get the technical experience is it just through experience and osmosis?
I’m currently working on a project where I’m in a group of four. Someone said “hey I’m in your group”, and I said “sorry, the group is full”, and they said “when did we pick up this other person, we can’t do groups of 5”. They aren’t picking up the hint...

My wife got laid off by her employer a couple weeks ago but her severance package is for 3 months. It would be as if she was still employed until May. Should I report this as a life event now or wait?
#metoo - when I told someone senior, they made me think they cared, encouraged me to document my story, entrust it to him, and then he used it as as leverage to block someone from an exec position
That sinking feeling when you're barely holding pace to make your hours and bonus this quarter, then you're volun-told to take on a big nonbillable firm training project. 😭
Base Salary range for Manager at EY in Transaction Advisory? NYC. Asking for a friend ;-)
Made my first big, client-facing mistake today. Almost made it a year without one, but alas. Embarrassed and nervous about fallout, especially in the time of layoffs. Say a little prayer for me.
I used to work at West Monroe Partners, it was a great place to work but we were severely under paid. Why cant a management team put the total package together of culture and comp? That would crush.
Anyone care to shed some light on UBS and their inner workings (culture, career growth etc) Considering a position in their Reg Reporting group and Glassdoor isn’t cutting it.
Shouldn't industry M&A folks be given a preference over IB M&A in PE recruiting, given they're actually buying companies and not just advising some random client to buy one?

What is everyone thinking about sending their kids back to school in a few weeks? From a safety standpoint, I want kids to stay home, but from a learning and mental wellbeing standpoint, obviously kids benefit most from physically being the classroom. I also don’t know how parents are going to manage working from home as well as monitoring their kids throughout the school day. (Let’s keep this respectful)
