I just signed for a 100% raise and promo at another B4 and I don’t even fully comprehend how much that will affect my life yet but I am super ecstatic. I always saw posts about these seemingly out of reach salaries and I would get all sad like damn it’s gonna take me years to get there and then boom just like that I’m there. Unreal. I can’t wait to start.
Any idea if the B4 firms care if you resell your Becker CPA materials? I've got these books and flash cards just taking up space that could be a huge help to someone without a firm sponsor.
I am 3rd yr SC with a b4 in US Cybersec practice. Total of 7.5 yoe. I have a bachelors degree in Biotech from India. Aspire to make the transition over to a more leadership role. Cont..
Just joined a Big 4 firm under the impression I would be doing XYZ work, but it turns out they misrepresented the position and the reality of the engagements available. I was straight up lied to (I did my due diligence as best I could). What should I do?
Those who exited from B4 to industry and don’t have to deal with month and year end closing process - what’s your role, YOE, comp?
For JDs out there, is it easier to make partner in BIG 4 or law firm? What do you all think?
I’m pretty done with big 4 consulting. Planning to go independent (I’m in tech)so I have more control over decisions, traveling, WLB, etc. has anyone done this? Anyone care to share their experiencie?
Recently left for an exec position in industry. Yesterday, CEO handed me 7 proposal decks for a project we're kicking off. Two from MBB, three from B4, two from other. How the turntables...
What’s the feasibility of going from big 4 with 2 YOE out of college to BCG, Bain, McKinsey?
Help. Had rounds of interview for a senior role in a industry, made it to the final round with CEO. I thought the interview went pretty well, and connected with the hiring manager on LinkedIn too; otherwise why would they arrange me to meet with CEO and founder ? But it’s been a month since my last round and no update .BUT , I saw the hiring manager post on LinkedIn said they are hiring. Did I ask for too much pay? I asked for 110 k, because I have 7 years experience, 3 yr BIG 4;
Should I pull the trigger and apply to another job. I’ve been at big 4 for a little over a year now and I don’t see myself staying until manager, possibly not even senior. I never was super ecstatic about the job, but it has gotten worse since WFH began. Another job opportunity appeared closer to my home with the potential of a $10K+ pay increase.
CBS/Booth/Sloan - which places most importance on soft factors as opposed to numbers? Applying with a 3.6/700 from B4
Recruiter is really pushing me into a job interview with a client of the firm. Think I’ll really like this job over my current B4 job, but worried if they move too quick I’d have to make a decision mid busy season and burn bridges. Any advice? I just don't want to pass up on this opportunity if I do eventually want it. Timing isn't great.

What does bench life look like for you? For me a typical day looks like this 9 am- sign in and check emails 930-11 : look for a new job 11-2 lunch and nap 2-3 : sometimes meetings, mostly begging people for billable work 3-4:30 - proposal work if I have it or more job hunting 5-9pm family time and dinner 10-3am - netflix, videogames, cry myself to sleep
Best city to live in in early-mid 20s?
How do we feel about inclusion and diversity programs? Does it really add value and achieves something or is it just a marketing thing to make the company look better?
Question for guys- if girlfriend/wife makes more than you, how do you feel? Question for girls- if you make more than your boyfriend/husband how do you feel?
Pretty sure there will be similar stories at other companies as well. Speak up please.
My colleague keeps drawing naked women on his notepad. The client has seen it before so it might not be the best idea. But he seems to really relax while doing it. And he’s talented. What to do?
Funny a member of my team is “sick” after their St Patty’s weekend in Chicago and couldn’t make their morning flight.
As consultants, does the fact that Pete Buttigieg worked at McKinsey make you less likely or more likely to vote for him? (All else equal and assuming you vote)
Without naming your country (or home state if you’re from ‘Murica), what is your country/home state famous for? I‘ll go first: Beer, Fries, Waffles
I am proposing to leadership that our open requisitions have fully vaccinated requirements for all roles, so that we are hiring vaccinated people into the firm. Is this fair or would it affect talent acquisition negatively?
Drank too much at a work dinner with some very senior people in the firm. Not sloppy but noticeably more buzzed than the rest of the group. Any recovering from this or do I look for another job?
