How would you feel when your manager hires someone who is in the same age as you, with a cpa and had worked in big 4 before. Meanwhile you don’t have any PA experience and only half way through cpa.
Anyone else with big 4 experience looking to find a rewarding career path with an undergrad degree in accounting? What career options are out there without having to go back to school?
how much does a partner at B4 in the Enterprise Risk Management advisory services make ?
Does anyone have insight into Houlihan and/or Alvarez for M&A tax? I don’t know anyone at either firm, so I thought I’d ask. The pay seems similar (maybe little higher at A&M but depends on bonuses), but can anyone help me compare the two in other ways? Any info helps but I’m curious about complexity of deals (vs B4), WLB, culture, growth potential (for the deals group and the firm overall), and any other differences I should think about. Thanks so much!
How to get selected for big 4, not able to currently, getting rejected after first round only
What are solid target schools for breaking into BB/EB IB or MBB? Started at B4 tech consulting this January and thinking of going for a Masters next fall. I went to a non target school and have a 3.3 gpa & 760 GMAT McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Shot at W: 760, 3.3 from top 30 (top 10 engineering), mediocre EC, 1 year at small company, 3.5 years at b4 consulting at matriculation with early promo. Not planning to apply because I see it as a long shot but want someone to confirm for me hahah
Why is it common for people to move around amongst the Big 4? I understand that some of the firms make more money than others, but tbh they all still seems like the same company to me.
Does big 4 generally pay more than mid sized firms all the way up the ladder or is there just more potential for earnings as a partner at a big 4?
Salam, Ramadan Mubarak! Anyone have a good schedule to share for this Ramadan on how to manage sehri, fasting, and working consulting hours (Alhamdulilah, new to the big 4 and am also a mom to little ones). Are you guys planning to work after fajr, and crash early after isha or will you go back to sleep after fajr and work late after isha?
I want to transition my career into accounting advisory. Is there a benefit at trying to stay at Big 4 vs exploring other options such as Connor Group?
What is consulting like at SAP(the company)? Supply chain consultant with 2 YOE at big 4. Mostly just curious what the difference is working for SAP directly? Is the pay/benefits any good?
What is Deloitte’s typical manager work experience years? How does the title align with other big 4?
Hi! I am curious about getting into digital marketing at the Big 4 or another consulting firm. I am not a fresher either, I am a more experienced professional. have worked at other Fortune 500 companies within digital marketing. To complicate it, I would need a skilled worker visa sponsorship. I see lots of threads on here where it is totally possible. May anyone from Deloitte Accenture Capgemini or other firms share their experiences? Many thanks!
Honestly working at Big 4 has made me feel worthless. Seems like nothing I do is good enough. I graduated with honors from a large competitive public university. I came in with a positive attitude,I am a very talkative person who had many leadership roles in college, I always stay organize, and I put in the time and continue to look for ways to improve. But constantly feeling like I’m not “type A” enough or that I need to communicate more and prove my worth. Is it like this at other jobs too? :/
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
I feel like The Big 4 needs to invest in computers with more processing power. I can't finish my work efficiently if I keep seeing the message "not enough resources" and my excels keep crashing.
For people that switched firms: how did you go about finding recruiters/reaching out to people at other big 4? I'm specifically interested in the management consulting practice at Deloitte
Happy Friday Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral. Finally have data after the past 6 months - over half of my referrals got interviews. 20% offers. This is much higher than applying on your own. I’m more than happy to help: - Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.) - Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep / the firm - Share tips for the new BCG interview format

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
How do you guys actually deal with the stress from our jobs? And please don't give me the "I work out" or I "Go for runs" tropes..that stuff does not help with the day to day stress of our industry. How do you guys deal with it on a daily basis?
Has anyone gone from making 120k per year to 160/180k ? How did it feel and was it a huge life improvement and did u finally feel like everything your invested in your work life paid off? I’m at 120k rn and for the number of hours I’ve put in and the complete lack of savings I have living in a hcol city I’m hoping that my next salary will ameliorate my money worries . I don’t think after all I’ve done (school/work) I should feel underpaid and broke but I do
It’s so funny how my practice is shocked that the associates aren’t killing themselves to move up the ranks quickly when we are literally watching our managers kill themselves over this job. To my very niche financial services group: ITS NOT SEXY FOR YOUR MANAGERS TO BE HAGGARD AND THIN FROM LACK OF SLEEP, LIGHT, AND FOOD LOL
Punched a director in the mouth today for talking shit. I've been holding that in for 2 years. Feels like I came for the first time.
I know this is an incredibly privileged question to ask so spare me the criticism. But I am graduating with no student loans and starting a job in Philly making 95k. I want to lease an Audi A4 (~350/Mo) but my parents keep trying to talk me out of it saying it’s a terrible investment and that I don’t even need a car. I already plan on maxing out 401k/IRA and have an apartment for 1k/Mo. What do you guys think?
