Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division. They report directly to the c-suite and said they mainly focus on strategy or M&A and don’t do implementation. The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!
At a boutique firm for just over a year, I know this isn’t the best place for my growth, but a promotion is coming. Am I better of sticking around or try to go to MBB or big 4 at an associate level?
Just put in my 2 weeks!! Done with big 4.
Tax professionals who have left B4/PA, how has your work life balance been in private/industry? PA offers decent flexibility, although I don’t appreciate having to be available more often than not.
Anyone work at both MBB and Big 4 in their career (i.e. the McDeloitte combo)? How drastically different was the average level of talent? Were there any dumb McK's you thought would struggle at McD's?
Big 4 offer: 65k Mid size (top 10) offer: 71k Would it be delusional if I accept the mid size offer?
Should I switch b4 firms for a 15% pay bump?
Received an offer from RSM as a supervisor. Coming from B4 not quite sure what the title entails (i.e., the difference between that and a manager). Currently a SA. Can someone from RSM explain? TIA!
I feel a split in Big 4 about working hours. If one gets in at 8 and leaves at 5, or at 830 & leaves at 530 etc, why do some people who come in at 9/930 get upset people don’t stay until they leave?
For those of you that left b4 and got a job in finance or fp&a, is the grass really greener or do you end up hating your job and go for an MBA to do something else?
Hello everyone, can anyone please tell me here how advisory is different from audit in terms of work life balance and growth perspective? And also which big 4 has better opportunities in FAAS profile ? Looking forward to make switch from audit to advisory.
As an accountant in b4. I truly want to go back military as an officer for rest of my career. Life would be much better and as well as the pay............
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
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
Would experience in big 4 FDD make one a competitive candidate for FP&A or other roles in a FAANG several years down the line?
27yo that left consulting to go into real estate private equity. After 2 years of experience had to start at the analyst level and took a small paycut. Have an offer to now re-join consulting with a much higher salary 30k more at least. My PERE firm is small and it’ll probably take me 2-3 years to make those 30k back. Am I overthinking or should i pursue the money when the end goal is to retire as early as possible?
Hello there! I have been interviewing with Amazon for L6 Sr. UX Designer role. I want to understand what’s the salary range I should be negotiating for that role. I have no clue what big company like amazon and Facebook pays for someone with 10 years of experience. Any help and pointer will help me with the negotiation. Thank you.
Brought the interns out for drinks on Thursday and dropped $400...getting that signed off as an expense on Monday will be fun 🙈
Who left consulting recently due to Up or Out culture? Did you change your mind about Up or Out post COVID?
Senior 1 salary San Diego?
Any agency layoffs yet? (I obviously hope not. Just trying to get a sense of where agencies are sitting.)
I'm applying/attending job interviews for financial analyst type roles in industry from Big4. I don't really have an industry that I'm really passionate about. I'm paranoid that I'll exit and get stuck in a specific industry. Did any of you have issues moving between industries? How did you manage to be competitive or overcome that issue when changing industries? Thanks!
Anyone have any experiences moving from "IT" to Management Consulting? The plan was to get an MBA, but 8 months into my career, my firm is laying off analysts, so I'm looking at my options.
BCG DV 🐠 - I’m discussing a move to DV. How’s the culture compared to regular BCG or McK? I’ve been soaking up info from partners & directors but I want to hear from everyone else.
I want to start on the chfc and cfp but the courses are 8k through American college. Is there a better alternative out there? I definitely think there's value in them but that's a bit steep for me
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?

Is anyone doing anything cool remote learning wise with their prek class. I’m looking for some fun ideas to get them motivated again !
I’ve worked in Management Consulting for around 5 years. Been looking for exit ops working closer to content/releases at music labels (WMG, SME, UMG) for the past year but it’s so hard to get my foot in the door without significant past music experience 😭 Anyone have any advice, or potential contacts?
@Adweek I had it again. In their obituary of Stewart altar, a great man who served the industry and his agency for his entire adult life, they refer to him as “old school editor retires’ ￼. Ageism at its worst. I strongly urge an industrywide boycott about a week. No sneak peaks, no interviews, shut them off.￼
I am unable to manage my work and GMAT preparation. I work in IT Risk Advisory and the work culture (India 🙄) and hours are crazy (10-12 hours avg). I am behind my targets as per my study plan (targeting ~750) - can only manage to get in 1-2.5 hours of prep daily/alternate days, I try to study on weekends but it's difficult as I am burnt out from the work. Need advice from people who have faced and cracked this. I like my work and would prefer to grow and be a top performer as well
Is the grass always greener. I’m super happy in my current job. I like my coworkers, I get to do the projects that I want, and I have an all around good support network. I have also built my reputation up enough to the point where I have a lot of flexibility and can control how I work. But sometimes it bothers me knowing that I could leave and get a significant raise. Reading fishbowl it seems like everyone chases money regardless of how happy they are currently
