Going from Big4 to MBB, should I share which firm I’m going to as part of the separation process? Or keep it on the DL? D at a B4 for context and not looking to burn bridges, if possible.

Keep it on the DL unless you tell someone you trust! In the meantime, remove all your personal information off your company laptop (do this before you send your resignation letter) they may terminate you on the spot because of a “perceived” competitor! Be prepared and also congratulations! That’s my goal to move from B4 or MBB because it more prestigious!
