"Tired of the Big4 BS" is leading you to consider a body shop like Cognizant and I don't even know what that other one is? Go to a boutique or industry.

Crowe Horwath is a smaller (relatively speaking) accounting firm that also has a consulting branch. I have a friend who is really happy there, though she's doing some specific analytics work that she's really passionate about.

I would not recommend going from Deloitte to Cognizant - recommend you look into other options. Really can't say what those other options would be without more info on what you're looking for

We're always hiring at Accenture btw :) Less bs here than at the big 4. Just note your experience here can vary tremendously depending on the practice you're working in

What do you think you'll have better at Cognizant than at Deloitte?

Why would you go to CTS. God no.

What’s the role offered at CTS? Depends a LOT on that..I have worked for them and can help

Which group at Cognizant? If your offer is in Cognizant Business Consulting (or Cognizant Consulting), then do consider it. CBC is like 5,300 people out of 250K in the company. It's a good place to be. The rest of the org is a body shop for sure but that's also how Accenture is now outside of pure consulting.

Also, in my CBC group I've got both Ex-PWC and Ex-Deloitte. They've each personally told me their work life balance is better and the work they are doing is the same. And they like the less political nature of Cognizant when it comes to promotions.

My friend loved Crowe and I’ve heard great things about them over the years

I feel as though not increasing stub year bonuses is shortsighted.

Seems like a way to cheap out since doing it would require pushing the rest of the scale up slightly.
