A little late the other day, saw there was an accident on Maps, sent this message to my B4 friends: "When you running late but get to blame it on the accident 😏" Realize I sent it to my senior 😱
Any suggested reading before starting at an MBB? Lateraling from Big 4 and looking to make the learning curve as manageable as possible.
Those who have signed a NDA. What are the terms for a usual ask? Can’t go to a competitor for x length? So let’s say I leave Deloitte, I wouldn’t be allowed to join another Big 4 within 6-12 months?
I truly don’t understand the appeal of consulting anymore. I recently left to industry after 6 years in consulting. The money and WLB and impact you make in the world is so much better than consulting. Idk how I stayed in that big 4 bubble for 6 years...
Any thoughts on moving from Big 4 valuation to BDO valuation or would that be a poor decision? 1 YOE, up for promotion to senior at Big 4 later this year
What is Big 4 policy on tuition reimbursement?
Is the B4/Public experience even respected as much anymore? Had a company offering me a pay-cut and unwilling to budge because I had less years of experience than what the position asked for.
How long did it take you to get an offer after final review? Big 4 advisory experienced hire specifically. Thanks!
I joined a big 4 and moved a majority of my retirement accounts into one brokerage account at Vanguard for compliance. Any advice on what blend of ETFs I should do? For background: I’m 38, moving ~$700k, with a total network around $2m, and would love to do some sort of fire around 45-50. Was looking at a VOO, VYM, and VUG split of sorts.
What’s a fair total comp in a big 4 accounting firm for an advisory manager with 10 YoE?
Started 7 months ago, but already performing at a senior level. Been working 50 hours since I started. Just got an offer with one of the B4. Currently unhappy with my firm but too scared to leave...
Why did I just get uno reversed by EY compliance?? I'm trying to figure out if EY considers my gf a spousal equivalent, so I asked independence and they literally responded, "We'd need to know if you are in a long-term relationship generally equivalent to that of a spouse?" Are you joking...? If anyone's gotten a better definition from EY, please let me know. As per Deloitte's policy, it's a no, but apparently the big 4 all make up their own definitions...
Was Rob Manfred a Big 4 partner in a past life? It's the only explanation as to what's going on in baseball right now.
What is the best Big 4 firm and why is it EY?
Is anyone aware of EY credit union relationships? I know some employers have this, not sure if it is offered at B4 firms. Looking for a small auto loan from a credit union.

Asking for an office manager.
I am embarking on a new position this next school year. I will be starting a new self-contained moderate class and need any useful tips for veterans of these classes.
How do you all handle non-billable work on top of meeting your billable targets (assuming no minimum requirement and bonus threshold not an issue)? I.e. If you have two hours of non-billable work to do (but it’s work that can be added to your time sheet like business development) do you still bill ~8 hours of billable work on top of that for a total of 10hrs on your sheet?
There are few things I loathe more than inefficiency, and the current way my office's development system works is peak inefficiency. Every day is a battle not to punch through my monitors.
Anyone working at the BKD or DHG?
