Currently work at NH and would generally not recommend unless you have a very specific specialty (with industry connections) that aligns closely with growth areas. If you are just going to be a manager or below you are going to be paid less but still have travel expectations with less fringe benefits

How's the salary growth in consulting as compared to banking ( normal commerical banking) ? Yes Bank, ICICI bank seem to pay better than the advisory hiring by big 4 ( ey, kpmg, Deloitte, pwc). In 5-7 years down the line, which line has the best salary growth? IT consulting, consulting or banking? Thanks!

Senior 3 at EY, banked my bonus and expecting promo in October (so $30k on the table in bonuses to stay). Realizing that I'd like to explore accounting advisory though (either FAAS at EY or something at another B4 or other smaller firm (e.g., CBIZ?)). Any recommendations on timing of exploring this internally (should I float something up and investigate at EY this spring? will it take a full year to transfer if accepted? Am I kind of screwed by being a senior 3 and should've done this earlier?)

Looking to make a move into this sector. Currently an Auditor who serves VC/PE companies, but am burnt out of audit life. I’ve been looking into FDD at other Big 4 firms, but it seems people have similar complaints. Higher pay certainly sounds nice though.. Also seems that A&M is a desire able exit for people. Is anyone able to provide further insights on what to expect in FDD at Big 4, versus a similar role at A&M?

I left B4 as a senior and went to industry. Hated it and decided to take a job at top-10 firm after 2 years. The pay is on par with my industry job and the hours are a bit better than B4, but I’m thinking about jumping back to original firm or maybe a different B4. Any one else have a similar path? I hate how this will look on my resume and maybe feel a little like the grass is greener, but I think I have some good reasons.

I was let go from my position yesterday. The managing partner, who did the letting go, said it as because of poor development and bad work product. Yet, only in December, I got a solid raise and excellent bonus for my size firm. Between then, the partner had made unsupported claims of bad work (e.g., claimed I used the wrong code in a letter bc it wasn’t the one he told me to use but the one the documents supported). Never dreamed of being “fired.” All partners are holding the party line and ...

I have a 2 hour interview with an agency tomorrow for a freelance role. This is my first time speaking with them, a recruiter set me up with them last week and they liked me enough to want to meet me (!!) I’m meeting the members of the team individually which is why it’s so long, but do you think a 2 hour interview right off the bat is a good sign? Any tips for not burning out over the course of 2 hours?

Our firm told everyone no bonuses this year due to the pandemic. However, people like myself with high utilization received a “bonus” in terms of a gift card. My director notified me of this, but the other day my boss was mentioning how no bonuses this year really sucks. I was told by the director to not mention it to anyone but I figured if anyone knew I got one it’d be my boss. I feel super uncomfortable now because do I essentially lie to my boss because I’m not supposed to talk about it.
