I have been wanting to switch to advisory from audit. I have spoken up regarding this possible transfer but it doesn’t look like it will happen internally. I don’t want to leave public or B4 (cont)...
Did anyone have a dog prior to joining their MBB, and if so, how did you manage the travel?
So my flight ran out of woodfords before take off 😱
For Delta elites who have been traveling recently, what have the upgrade lists looked like? Starting to travel again from next week and just got back to Diamond status through the “Reclaim your Status” program.
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
Curious - in industry do a lot of companies have internal consulting groups that function like a big 4 would? Analyzing and implementing regulatory, strategic or other transformational initiatives?
Does getting to the hotel late Monday evening mean there are less “good upgrades” available? I have Ambassador status on Marriott fwiw
Congrats to all the folks who got promoted this year! Happy for everyone but still feeling a little blue.. was really hoping to make it to the next level this year. Looking for some advice.. do I slog it out for one more year in current big 4 or do I try to jump to another firm at the next level?
I’m a first year senior reporting to a partner that is very hands off. I’m not learning too much. Should I switch to big 4?
Does anyone take a slightly later flight on Monday morning than the rest of their team (from same city)? Is there any issue with doing this?
So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?
Advice on how to identify open roles that are primarily remote/WFH but willing to travel when it’s safe? When I search on company sites, LinkedIn, etc. the roles are usually tied to a specific city, but there’s got to be more out there considering pre-Covid travel and now WFH. TIA!
Looking at exit opportunities and job description says Big 4 experience in addition to helping prepare FS and helping prepare tax forms. I mean in Big 4 you're either in audit or tax.
How much all in can Big 4 MDs and Partners expect after 5 yrs at the level? Director at PwC at the cusp of moving to the next level. Evaluating if I should stay in consulting vs. moving to industry.
For new college grads who want to go into consulting but couldn’t make the cut this year, how much longer do we wait before we are eligible to apply as “experienced hire”? For most mbbs I know it’s ~1 of work experience required, what about big 4 or 2nd tier consulting firms?

SM1 @ Big 4, 13+ exp underpaid(159k). If I move to another Big 4 or comparable firm is it realistic to expect 20-25% pay bump?
Has anyone actually interviewed with Guild Education, specifically for the client services role?
Do you feel like people who worked at FAANG companies come into other companies with a bit of unnecessary hangups?
After traditional investment banking, I can safely say banking is better than consulting in regards to prestige, income, and sophistication of work. While consulting has better hours, nicer culture.
Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.
I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
I have an upcoming PM interview with an engineering manager. What types of questions should I expect? For some context, the interview is for a generalist PM role (not too technical) for a company that develops APIs.
Just entered my staff 2 year this summer. A large (private) client just reached out thru a recruiter to offer me a senior accountant position.
I had my first interview last Monday and it went really well. The interviewer said they really liked me and thought I would be a good fit. However I haven’t heard anything back since then. How long should I normally expect to wait to hear back about a next round? When is the right time to reach back out if I haven’t heard anything?
Not sure where to put this, but...how much is the max you spend on a single wine bottle at dinner when expensing dinner on a regular project working for big 4?
Deloitte hiring freeze? I had a verbal offer and reviewed benefits 3 weeks before the covid environment. I was informed that I would be contacted when there was an update. Wait or reach out? Advice?
Does Citi really go after your sign on bonus after you quit? Pre tax and pro-rated or pre tax full amount regardless?
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
what does a staff augmentation project entail? i’ve heard this term several times but quiet not sure what it exactly menas
For those who are pregnant, my thoughts and prayers are with you. 🙏 Couldn't imagine going through this at this time. 💪
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
When you want to say "hell no" to a dud project but you can't because it'll reflect poorly on your 'initiative' rating 😪🤦♀️
Has anyone resigned their lease on a covid deal apartment? Did the rent go up significantly? Lease is expiring in November and not sure what to expect from the lanlord since the market is back to pre-covid levels
