What salary (base and benefits) can you expect if you leave one of the Big 4 after 2 years as a consultant? (No MBA, but a science PhD)
Which firms are openly hiring for entry-level jobs? I’m 1 year in and considering pivoting from IB to consulting. I have friends (MBB/Big 4) who can refer but not sure who to ask if, depending on whether those firms are even taking people.
Thinking of moving from B4 to Accenture or Slalom. I mostly do Epic stuff. Pros seem to be no audit/independence crap, less travel, more tech work. Any cons?
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!
Anyone joined Deloitte recently after H1B transfer from another big 4? I got the offer 4 weeks back and still waiting for the immigrations team to file the transfer?
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?
What is the atmosphere like at the non-Big 4 firms? Currently at a smaller firm (notoriously known on this app as a sweatshop) and am sniffing around.
My sad thinks I do audits because I'm in a big 4. I've been doing what I do for 5 years and it isn't even remotely close to an audit 😒😟😩😭
Anyone have insight on their thoughts regarding being an associate at a Big 4 for 2 years and then taking a job at a boutique consulting firm for a higher up position/more management experience/ higher pay? I’m torn

I am an associate at a big 4 firm, in a tech focused practice. How could I make a pivot to a tech focused VC/investment banking role?

Hello Everyone, Hope you are doing well. I need a small help and advice from advice from all of you. Recently I received an offer from MNC but a some what wierd clause is included if I get rejected in the client interview company will decide my further deployment and engagement. Quote : "For the employees who are not so selected by Client for the offers; we will discuss further deployments and engagements with the Company at that point of time." Please help me understand it.
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.

I work for a small boutique firm with ABYSMAL and TOXIC culture. The CEO has a habit of firing anyone who questions/disobeys him (he fired 40+ consultants since concis started) 5 consultants (incl myself) quit in the past 2 weeks leaving the firm with less than 10 consultants. I’m loving this karma
Been performing like a high performer on my client up to this point and all the sudden I find myself looking up a therapist and being almost useless to my team (maybe useless is harsh, but I can’t will myself to get basic stuff done at this point). Literally happened within a split moment; in the morning I was taking the lead on calls and sometime around noon, it just hit and hit hard. Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?
