Deloitte is the best for consulting. I think EY is second in big 4, especially in FS. PwC is the best for audit, but who cares about that. I heard from multiple people at different firms that EY is the best for tax, but this is the area I know the least about so take with a grain of salt. KMPG is last in every category. Nothing wrong with the firm, just that they’re the smallest and on average have smaller less interesting clients

M1 I can’t think of a single good practice you can learn from KPMG

If you're averaging it all together across the entire country you basically get PwC number 1 in audit, Deloitte number 1 in consulting, and EY number 2 in both. But it varies so much city-to-city, especially small and mid-sized cities.

Deloitte has had the fewest PCAOB comments for a few years.

I think it depends on the local office... in different cities it can vary

Agree with this 100%. Your experience can vary at the exact same firm depending on who you work with. At the end of the day that’s what will make or break your time there.

I think Deloittes audit quality is very solid too, looking at PCAOB inspections.

PWC, EY, Deloitte, KPMG for audit. Coming from a lifelong EY’er

Agree with this. I used to work at Deloitte and Kpmg and by far I have learned the most at EY and they are way better in Audit than Deloitte and KPMG. Deloitte is more into consulting and will give up audits to get a tax or consulting advisory engagement. Idk about PwC but I think they are at 1 in audit

Basically all the same....

KPMG doesn’t even know what GAAP is anymore. Every KPMG partner should be thankful that Andersen got caught first. Had they pulled some of the shot they pulled 20 years ago, Andersen would be the other big 4 firm

I was an MBA intern and FT hire at Deloitte. Been here 3 years, been at M for the last year. I have seen others leave at this point in their careers and go direct to SM/director roles in industry, but as I start applying for jobs and have convos with recruiters, I have had more than one say that I’m light on YOE and that for that reason alone I am either not considered for a SM role or unlikely to have my salary expectations met. How can I combat/preempt this? Others clearly have.

Don’t hate on me plz. I’m planning to get an online or hybrid MBA with focus on information systems. I studied and worked in Control Systems Engineering and got into consulting at 27, manager at big4 now(33). My focus is to simply get better at what I do as I rise up the ladder. Would really appreciate any schools one can recommend. I didn’t grow up or studied in USA so really not sure which colleges might be better (?) than others.

Would you leave Deloitte as a M for MBB but at one level down (SC equivalent)? I’m conflicted because I feel like I have a strong network internally and have lots of freedom to execute projects as I see fit but worried switching would take away all that plus move me backwards in role / responsibility.
