Looking for job recommendations for someone who likes working with personal taxes (individuals & trusts & such). Currently working at a big 4 and don't think I can make it much longer.
Currently in financial services tax WAM federal group at B4, manager. Seriously considering the exit and have been applying actively in various industries (not the typical PE or hedge funds in house role). Which industry is the best in terms of growth opportunities and pay? Fintech? Info/technology? E-learning? My end goal is becoming a head of tax and I want to choose my first industry role wisely. Don't want to get pigeonholed into a dying industry.
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
I've got 60k saved to buy an investment property, need 125k b4 I have enough funds for down pymt. want to invest without risking my base. any good vehicles out there?

Hi 🐠 - does anyone know about Blackstone Tech & Innovations team (BXTI working with Real Estate / PE)? Is the work interesting / tech strategy, or more boring back office IT work? Would it be a step down or up from Tech Consulting at Big 4? Blackstone
MBB helps their employees find an exit opp via alumni connections and an internal job search. Why doesn’t Big 4/ACN/IBM do that? It’s looked down upon to say you are interested in leaving.

Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it. Generally fed up with the long hours, lack of project variety, and the firm’s small practice and lack of focus in my interest area and wondering if things would improve at a boutique that specializes in what I want to do.
What is this about OT labor laws that took effect on 12/1/16 resulting in Big 4 layoffs nationwide? Does anyone know a little more about this?
Need advice! I have been for Acn for very long but resigned recently. I have not started on the new job yet. I felt happy when I accepted the new job. Recently, anxiety is creeping up on me. Self doubts like Have I made a wrong decision to quit? Maybe I should have waited for the performance bonus? Will the new job be too tough for me to handle? What if the new work culture is bad? What if I do not excel in the new company? Maybe I should retract my resignation?LOL Continued in the comment...

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?

I’m supposed to roll off next week because my work stream is ending so I pinged an md and said I’m free for a new project in a week.

Getting into consulting (MBB) seems easier than getting a choice position in industry (e.g. Corporate strategy director).
TFW when your SM announces to the team that your manager is leaving the project while the manager is out on PTO. -_-
