Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?
Anyone have experience moving from a mid-tier firm to B4? What big differences have you found in work load and stress level if any? Is the switch really worth it. Currently A2 and on track to S1.
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Anyone here have experience boomeranging back to their original b4 firm within a year of leaving for a diff b4? Does this look bad on a resume?
I'm getting my MBA from the University of Arizona, how prestigious is the AACSB accreditation? And do MBB or Big 4 Consultant firms care about it?
Looking to return to Big 4 as a consultant now that I have some experience; however, I’m not sure if the reason I’m not getting any interviews is because of covid or what’s on my resume/lack thereof. Has anyone gotten hired at Big 4 during this time and have any help or insight for me? Thanks!
Does anyone know anything about the real estate advisory practices within the big 4? Which are the best firms for it, cities, ect.
Thoughts on Slalom v Big 4?
How much total comp raise would you need to go to another big 4, equally reputable in the space. They claim that they will reduce your travel from 80% to 25%, which is a big plus for me.
Pre-covid did B4 have Holiday/New Years parties?
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
Finally leaving Big 4!!!
I read on Management Consulted that OW don't specifically recruit post-MBA. How accurate is that?
Can anybody shed light on why I got bumped? I booked an award ticket (class YN), which I thought removed you from upgrade eligibility unless you have the Chase United card (have the no AF version).
If you get a full time offer from the firm where you interned during your summer after your first year of MBA, will the offer pay for your second year of tuition?

What is hike that we get for promotion from Management Consultant to Manager in Accenture Strategy? And what is general salary range for Mgmt Consultant and Manager in Accenture Strategy?
Looking for referrals on affordable, competent TPAs for SoloKs over $250k and traditional unbundled 401ks. Looking for Illinois and SoCal, but if they are good I don't care where they are located, if they can do Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
After flying coast to coast for a year, I got a mental breakdown yesterday and can't stop crying in my hotel room last night, I would like to get a new job with higher pay but visa limits my choices
As I sit here and lesson plan on my day off, I'm wondering how important planning is- especially for us veteran teachers. I mean, I sometimes spend hours on one and then throw it out or change it anyway.
For you that tip Ubers and expense it afterwards, how do you keep track? Always update a spreadsheet afterwards?
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Anyone given the Googlyness and Leadership interview? What kind of questions are asked?￼
Had an interview on Friday. Interviewer said that they would get back to me sometime this week with a decision. Haven’t heard back yet. Should I email them or wait?
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
Shout out to all my children of refugees, people in abusive households, those without the networks, those without the ivy leagues degrees. We made it baby!!!
How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
Just letting everyone know that the covid 19 trend is the "covid 20"...just like in freshman year in college...if you didnt put on 20 pounds...good for you but you're not in the cool group. Please refrain from shaming those that put on a few pounds here and there.
So I have a rememdial algebra 1 class with 8 kids. I also have 1 hr and 20 mins with them. These kids have done the same subject 1-2 times. Any ideas, resources, or lessons that dont make the class feel repetitive to a prior year?
