Currently making 100K in Big 4 Strategy arm (Monitor, Strategy&, K-Strat, Parth) with 2 YOE in high COL city and live at home to save on rent. Is finance analyst at Google for for ~ 120 total comp ok?
What agencies would hire management consultants? A little stifled after all these years at a Big 4 and want to be in a creative environment
One thing about the Big 4, they will use and abuse you if you let him. They dont give a damn about worklife balance, your personal career wants, or your advancement. They want you to stay where they want you to be.
What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
Hey y’all, what’s Tax senior 1 in Big 4 compensation look like in the Southeast? Looking to come back home from a high COL northeast. Mainly looking at Charlotte, NC. Responses are much appreciated 😊
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

I moved from B4 to industry accounting about 5 years ago. I currently work as a corporate accounting manager at a software company. I recently hired an big 4 audit senior right out of public and I’m struggling to get him up to speed. Does anyone have an example of reasonable vs unreasonable expectations for a senior accountant moving to industry after 2-3 years at B4 audit?
Any B4 to MBB experienced hires (excluding MBA recruiting) here? Would love to hear about any advice you have about applying.
Partners, what would be a typical monthly pension check be for MBB / Big 4? All firms welcome.
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
do any consulting firms in the US (MBB, Big 4) sponsor MBA programs outside of the country (e.g. London Business School, HEC Paris, INSEAD)
What would be reasonable base for Manager (API/ Integration Consulting) with EY ? I am currently with another B4.

Hello cyber team! Can anyone help suggesting sys integrator/implementation firms that are focussed primarily on cloud and devsecops? Also do they match big 4 salaries to some extent? Tia!
Friend didn’t get promoted (actually a friend) and is now trying to switch to another big 4 to get the promo. Ideas of reasons to give for making the switch?
What is the benefit of working for a big 4 over a mid size? From what I’ve seen the money is comparable and work life balance seems to favor mid size. If you aren’t worried about exit opportunities it seems like mid size is a better option.
I’m sure this has been asked before, but I couldn’t find it. My husband is a SM and trying to decide between MD and principal. What pay can he expect with each path at big 4?
Moms, need some advice. Husband and I have decided to try to get pregnant. I love the thought of having a baby but there is this nagging anxiety about life changing drastically & the thought of how good of a mom I will be. I don’t take well to big changes in life so knowing this is going to be physically & emotionally different is worrying me. Anyone been through this?
Is there any polite way to ask to be removed from an email thread? People are really abusing reply-all today.
Hey all, when would you say is a good time to inform your direct manager of your upcoming parental leave? Wife is expecting but not sure when I should tell my boss so we can plan on transitioning / back filing before I’m out. Thoughts please?
Have seen people who have climbed the ladder fairly quickly in Big4 firms by sticking to one client. How can this be a good thing for you as a consultant? I get the relationship part but how can....
I really do not understand my company's attendance policy. No sick or personal time and each time you have unscheduled PTO it's considered an occurence. Its super restrictive and during a pandemic you risk people coming to work sick spreading what could potentially be Covid. I just don't get it. I understand they are running a business but it just shows you really don't care about your employees at all but yet you want them to care about this company and the work being done here.

How do you spend the last day of school after the kids have gone home and you have locked up your classroom for summer?
I received an offer from KPMG as an advisory associate (75k), and a second one from Grant Thornton as a transformation consultant (70k). Im leaning towards the KPMG position, however I’m wondering about salary negotiations; the Grant Thornton position is in a state where cost of living is 15% cheaper than that of KPMG, and I am also in the process of obtaining my MBA (one more semester left). Any way I can leverage/utilize this information to negotiate a higher salary with KPMG?
How can I politely ask about work/life balance in an interview? I’m interviewing for a lateral move tomorrow for a job that I’m beyond qualified for (the internal recruiter is concerned that they won’t be able to afford me). The reason I am considering a lateral move is because I desperately need balance back especially during the pandemic. How can I phrase a question when interviewing that will give me an honest answer?
