When switching firms PWC>KPMG or vice versa, whats the best way to go about making the switch? Should I randomly apply, get a referral, or talk to a recruiter?

Professional looking and warm jacket for men that goes well with dress shirt? I walk about 15 minutes to the client site and the weather in Chicago is unpredictable at all.
Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)
I'm on a contract position and it's due to end. I asked my boss if they want me to stay and their answer was yes but we have to confirm with HR for budget. I've followed up twice but haven't gotten a solid commitment yet. It ends In late August and I'm wondering what else I can do. I don't want to be shit out of luck but don't want to seem disloyal by applying to other jobs.
Anyone from Accenture T&O know if you’re hiring?
Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
How do you deal with work-related thoughts on weekends? Used to be able to shut work off at night and Friday afternoon. Lately I’ve been dreaming about detailed stuff from current project.
First day on the project and the partner takes out an hour to teach me how to configure (1:1). Uncle D rocks!!!
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
For people managers, will you choose to downgrade to individual contributors at FAANG or continue being a people manager in traditional industries (e.g., finance, healthcare)?
Anyone here from Chicago Deloitte HC? Any thoughts on culture, project type, etc. would be much appreciated.
All my seniors and managers telling me what my role will be next year and I’m here like, there is no next year ;)
Currently with ACN in SEA, but looking to move to Australia in a year for better WLB. Anyone who's done this through Accenture or other firms? Any recommendations on how to approach this - PR/Visa, direct applications for jobs there etc.?
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
PRUDENTIAL: give me feedback about becoming an Advisor for your firm. I just interviewed and I kinda like it but I just don’t want to join a firm of insurance pusher, I want to make a difference. Help
Do you also hate "sandwich feedback" (praise, criticism, praise)? I know it's part of western culture. But clear and direct feedback should be enough. Working 12 hours a day, no one should have to waste time on this.

Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
How much do Desis working in the usa spend on clothes? No matter how much my salary increases, I cannot get myself to spend over $20 on a piece of clothing. I’m stuck with a ton of clothes from BR, old navy, jcrew, Ann Taylor. I’m starting to think that now, they look cheap. Trying to understand what others do.
I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
A realization: After fishbowl, my second most opened app during the day is the Delta App. I already know my seat, but probably hoping for an upgrade or maybe I just wish everyday is going home day.
