For those who came from B4 FT and is now a generalist, what practice were you in? Please also delineate on whether you were a lateral or mba hire.
What is work life balance like at Alverez and Marsal? Specifically for transaction advisory/financial due dilligence
Infosys is offering me an almost 50% rise from my current base pay with 100% remote and client-specific travel only. Need to know if it will be a good move for me or not considering that Deloitte (my current company) is one of the Big 4. I am not sure whether joining Infosys will close the door of other Big 4 or Accenture for me or it doesn't make a difference as I already have 5+ years of experience working with Deloitte with an overall experience of 12+ years.
Big 4 salary comparison. Collated some data points from Glassdoor to compare salaries across EY PwC Deloitte KPMG. Thought will be helpful for the fishes out there looking for job change or even progression/ promotion within team. Do like, share and comment 😀
Those who switched from audit to fp&a - could you provide any tips on how to tailor the resume to get interviews? I’m a senior at B4 with CPA and have applied 90+ companies but no interviews yet. In my resume I highlighted my experience in reviewing budget to actual variances, forecast models, valuation reports, using excel, etc., which I think is relevant to fp&a. How should I further polish my resume to increase my chances of getting interviews? TIA!
IB hours vs FDD in Big 4, which is worse?
I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms. I don’t think I’d want to make a career out of it given the long hours, however I’m contemplating accepting the role and doing consulting for 2 years and then going back to industry. Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!
Thoughts on moving from B4 Advisory to Houlihan Lokey in their Valuations practice? Portfolio Valuations and Advisory group to be exact. Not sure what the WLB, career progression, or comps are at Houlihan Lokey. Any insights on this team and what I can look at for comps, etc.? Thanks in advance!
Do all consulting firms emphasise doing internal stuff (business development, thought leadership, internal initiatives, people etc.) for the team on top of client work in order to get promoted? I’ve been at 2 Big 4 and it seems that to go M and above even top notch client delivery and feedback is not enough without the other stuff. I’m wondering if it’s more or less the same all around or are there places that don’t care that much?
Curious...for big 4 and national firms: for travel expenses (food hotel flight), do you have to use a firm card or can you use your own card? Also, do you have to book with a certain travel agent
Hello everyone, I would love to get some big 4 experience but I'm only a staff accountant at the moment. What are some ways to get my foot in the door? I'm not a CPA btw.
What’s the perspective on (civil) engineering consulting firms? Does any one make the jump from a Jacobs/Stantec/WSP into a big 4/MBB? I know most of our work is implementation heavy and industry specific, but it seems like there’s a lot of overlap IMO
Questions for past/ current Accenture or Big 4 folks. I noticed in some threads that SC level only applies to Strategy consulting (at Accenture- not sure about big 4). Could Product Manager be SC level if I have my MBA or is it not even considered a Strategy role? And do they only consider you an “MBA hire” if it’s from a top tier school? Lastly, I’ve seen quite a big salty range for MBA hires. Anyone care to share the latest? TIA.
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?

How likely are you to get a job you interview for? At B4 they basically gave us offers if we had a pulse, what are the odds for industry jobs?
Got a job offer at PgM L4, which I’m very excited about. I will undoubtedly be a first year manager at a big 4 consulting firm this July, am I settling by not shooting for L5?
Has anyone ever installed / used kutools? Every time I google excel questions the kutools help articles whisper sweet nothings to me..
Tuesday Profound Thought:
Does anyone here use a hair brush that’s not plastic? Either bamboo, wood or neem? I hate the static that comes with a plastic brush and have heard good things about a bamboo/wood one. Just not sure what kind to get.
Been saying BTC is going sub 30k and way too many doubted it. Almost there. 20k pretty likely imo.

General thoughts on Grand Seiko? I was looking at the Rolex DJ 36 (Oyster bracelet, smooth bezel, blue dial) and other similar sporty/dressy pieces in the $7k range (Glashutte 70s, which can be had at a high $7k handle with discount), and have now had my attention captured by GS (specifically, SBGA439 - blue dial spring drive on bracelet w date). They seem to produce pieces on par with GO, JLC, and other boutique makers at around half the price. What’s the catch? Will I get what I pay for?
