I have 2 outstanding offers from EY and KPMG in the Finance Transformation group. Does anyone have any insight on the WLB right now, with the labor shortage and pipeline being crazy?
Also,does anyone have any insight to how difficult the transition will be from being a manager at a middle market firm into a manager at the B4? If someone else has done the transition how long did it take to get your feet under you?
I'm in industry now but got highest ratings at my B4. had strong recommenders but they were definitely a little salty that I had left. I only really have one direct manager here- worth asking them?
What is the toughest challenge for a Consultant to transition from big 4 to MBB consulting? I was fortunate enough to get an MBB offer as an experienced Consultant and want to make sure I hit the ground running. Thanks!

Thoughts on under reporting hours? I’m an analyst and report 45 hrs/week regardless of hours worked to ‘help the team with budgeting’. It impacts my utilization but not sure if that’s just the consulting way?

Was promoted to Principle System Engineer in December 2021 (Technical Band 3) and went from 81k to 98k. Our company has experienced significant attrition (13 engineers down to 4 engineers within 6 months) so a few months ago my director bumped me up to 110k based on me being a top performer in 2021 end of year review. I am grateful for the pay increase, but all of the coworkers who left have found positions that provide significantly higher pay. Am I being underpaid for my work?

I’m a senior in audit who has been given the advice to stay as long as I can until I’m sick of public. I’m close to manager and have opportunities in my clients, but I am just so tired and over this. It’s been about four years for me here, and I want to quit but i feel like I’m close to manager, that if I leave now I’ll be ‘giving up’. I feel sick of public, but not sick enough onto cash in my chips. Anyone else feel or has felt the same?
