How’s A&M viewed as at MBB in comparison to Big 4 in terms of reputation, competitiveness? Does it increase chances to get an interview at MBB coming from A&M vs Big 4? Thanks all!
I accepted a huge promotional offer to a manager role in industry. So I am leaving big4 as a senior. My background check just came through and somehow they have my big4 salary listed, even though I’m 99% sure I checked the box they couldn’t contact my employer. Could the company take back my offer for something lower?
Was on the bench for a while (5 months) and just about to get rolled onto a new project in a role I’m not very passionate about and is a lateral move but it’s billable work. I recently got a verbal offer from a smaller consulting company to step into a role that is a huge step forward in my career. I’m going through clearance for my current role and recently learned many are leaving the project to work on other projects so I and one other person will be the only ones left.…

Google Do solutions consultant interviews have a distinction between GCA, RRK, G+L or is this assessed across all of the interviews? I noticed most of my interviews were very similar with a combo of hypothetical and behavioral. No clear distinction overall but maybe some subtlety in a couple of questions.

I’m a mid level lit associate. Headed out on a vacation tomorrow and feeling guilty leaving my case team behind who are all drowning. I know vacations need to be respected, but is it ok to feel this way?
So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing. The sub had rearranged my stuff and taken candy (that I had intended to give to the office workers) and said she gave it to one of my classes. I am livid. Am I over reacting?
How many big 4 people are done busy season right now for audit? Started getting asked to work 80 hour weeks which is why I didn't go big 4. Thinking about switching if it stays this way.

Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”
Has any big4 folks who are on H1Bs done internal rotations at a different service line within their firms? Can you share your experience on the visa side of things please?
Currently a first year staff in Risk Advisory in a Mid-Tier Firm hoping to move to Big 4 for either Risk or Cyber. When would be the most appropriate time to make the change? I heard that Senior Staff in mid-tier would most likely be hired as an “Experienced Hire” in Big 4. So would it be smarter to make the move now as a first year staff since I’ll be considered Experienced Hire anyway?
Anyone went from working at a big 4 to a boutique firm of 15 people? How was your experience?

I went back to my old job when I lost my job. This was probably more an emotional decision. My old manager and team welcomed me back with open arms. I’ve only been back for a couple of weeks but I’ve realized that I want to pivot into analytics and my current role has limitations in this area. Am I horrible for wanting to leave even though they asked me that I was planning to stick around for more than a few months. Any advice appreciated!
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
Spending the New Year’s holiday in Annapolis MD. Will be there for about a week. Any family-friendly recommendations on fun things to do? (The youngest in our group is 16). We’ll have our own car so we also don’t mind a good drive somewhere.
