Hi Tech Fishes - I'm a presales solutions architect trying to pivot to the partner business side of large cloud service providers.
Debate: who is the B1 of the B4?? 🤔 I have respect for all as I work with them all but would love to hear opinions
Would it be possible to work as a part-time real estate agent while working in Big 4 audit/consulting? I know this would leave basically no free time, but the busy season for real estate is summer so it ovule stagger with the audit busy season. Is this doable or would it be too much? EY Deloitte KPMG PwC Keller Williams Realty Century 21
How are the hours in B4 Risk Assurance? I’m doing 60+ at midsize. My colleagues say it’s way higher.
Hello! HR Business Partner looking to pivot into Human Capital, any advice/best practices? I have almost seven years of experience, Masters in HRM,SHRM certified and previously worked at B4 firm.... No consulting experience so seeking advice on how to break into HC consulting. Thanks!
Left big 4 for mid size firm, right now want to go back to big 4, what would be a good reason for this switch for interview question?
Has the hiring slowed down in big 4 FDD? Looking to make the move and wondering how long it’ll take to get an offer if all goes smoothly.
MBB em level role vs. director level tech (non FAANG) exit? Coming from b4, roughly 10 yoe. I know it’s probably a personal preference thing but hoping to get opinions here. Tech role is $190k base plus a 30% target bonus. MBB role i got a verbal offer without a comp figure yet but my understanding is it’s around there, maybe 10-20% higher (or maybe much higher depending on bonus).
Didn’t fully expect to get the MBB offer honestly, but both beat my 180/198 b4 comp. Now i’m torn.
Have an opportunity to switch from Big 4 consulting to a boutique shop. Hoping to apply to B school next fall with 3 years of experience - would boutique experience help or hurt my app?
For reference, currently doing data & analytics for financial services, boutique firm would be more strategy focused in financial services. Hoping to do MBA with finance focus
Does anybody here work at HCE, would you please share your experience, especially if they moved from a B4?
What are typical hourly billable rates from big 4 for external audit services by role? New York or California.
Coming up on a year at big 4 and am realizing tax isn’t for me. I’m much more interested in finance/real estate roles. Anyone have advice/recommendations? Stay till senior? Or get my CPA and leave
Hello, folks! I wonder if you have any advice/info for a person who is looking for an "investment associate" role in Dubai. I have a financial audit background (4 years Big-4), 1,5 year in deal advisory (half year financial due diligence department, 1 year valuation department). I have experience in TMT, retail, Energy and Utility and other industries. Currently I'm living in Eastern Europe.
What is considered to be normal in relation to WBL, compensations in Dubai for such role or similar?
Tips for IBD Associate interviews for sector groups I have little experience in? I have B4 CF and M&A Strategy (CDD, etc) experience, so I can handle the technicals, but I am wondering what I should do to make up for lack of sector experience. Obviously it's not a dealbreaker since they're both interviewing me off cold apps, but I want to maximize my chances.
Looking to leave my current role, in industry (engineering/manufacturing) and to get back into big 4 (same firm as well), however I have a 3 month holiday planned from December next year.
Are big 4 pretty lenient on allowing holidays of that length? Especially for boomerangs? Or is it better to come back after the holiday and try then? Thinking that contracting temporarily might be the way to go in the interim.
Hey! Audit manager (exp in Financial
services sector) with a Big 4 looking to

Are Rothy's worth it?
I have a meeting with a CEO of a start-up IB. She is meeting to help guide me in the industry (not just a job interview). What questions would you ask?
I’m dealing with some hypopigmentation (not hyperpigmentation) as a result of eczema on my face. I went to the derm who provided me with some Tacrolimus but the results are painfully slow - it’s been about 45 days and maybe 25% of my pigment has returned if that. Has anyone else dealt with this and had any tips or product recommendations? I’m not finding much online either (other than wai but I’d love to speed up the process since it’s on my face)
What agencies are doing influencer marketing really well? Also, as part of their offerings will they identify opportunistic trends for a brand?
I’m starting a women’s group (the first one ever) at my company with a colleague of mine. Since this happens to be February that we are starting this up I would be remiss if I didn’t address badass black women, I’m putting together resources including books, podcast, nonprofits to donate and support, articles to read (mainly around black women and tech to keep it relevant to our industry). Thoughts on anything to add/tips? Any guidance would be amazing as I don’t have any from HR really.
I have total 7.5 yrs of experience and my primary skill sets are SAP HANA, SAP BODS,SAP UI5.
Looking for some refferal in Simens ,British Petroleum,PWC,Amdocs ,SAP. Already serving notice period.
Thanks in advance.
Would really appreciate if anyone could provide some insight here! I’m looking at Bains AC deadline for fall but they have a lot of different deadlines for different schools. I was hoping if anyone could provide any insight on what the deadline would be for non targets? They don’t have one for non targets on their websites
Happy Belated New Year's, all! For those who practice intuitive eating, have you successfully lost weight/inches? I'm a CICO (calories in/out) die hard which has helped me lose major inches in the past. When I don't track/measure, my sense of proportions are out the door and the pounds pile in. So I'm coming to terms that I'll be forever logging on MyFitnessPal [sigh].

I applied for few SA roles at AWS after getting the SAA certificate and some badges like the “WAF” and “Advanced Migration”. I also optimized my resume recently trying to match what AWS would look for, but I did not get any 1st call or screening interview!
I also applied to some of the roles using friend’s referral. I have more than 15 years in IT infrastructure mainly in Storage systems (EMC, Hitachi) What could be the problem? Thanks.
