I’m tired of all the IT audit Haters as if all the other advisory roles in big 4 aren’t centered around auditing LMAO. We get paid well and the job isn’t that bad. Only privileged people have something to always complain about
Looking to get in contact with Big 4 transaction advisory recruiters..any assistance would be appreciated.
If you're interested in FDD at a Big 4 but are hesitant, I'd like to hear from you. I'm an FDD Partner and want to hear from good candidates that may be thinking the WLB of FDD isn't for them. Every firm, every office, every practice is different... I think I have a better model but I want to make it better and I want to share the story. Message me... give me your feedback... tell me what you're looking for.
What non traditional way did you get into cyber?
Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc. Should I consider moving to capgemini considering WLB. Will big 4 release me as I am still being onboarded. Also If they ask me to serve notice, will capgemini wait for me during notice period at big 4. Please help guys.
Does anyone have thoughts on leaving big 4 to work at a private wealth management firm? Have a CPA would consider getting CFP if it would help fit the requirements. Had someone reach out and haven’t done a ton of research yet just wanted to get some base level opinions.
Joined EY India a few months ago in tech consulting and have been working 12 hrs a day + 4-5 hrs on weekends and official holidays too. My project has literally 2 people (1 technical ie Me) and I'm myself new to the technology. I'm expected to make magic happen out of thin air and I don't know how I'm gonna survive here. Any advice?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
Is Accounting really worth it on the long term? I noticed a lot of people are ok with their salary but not necessarily in terms of WLB. I wasn’t informed very well when I used to be a student, but now it seems a lot of others paths and career suggest a great salary for a 40-45hr work week. What are your thoughts ?
I got call from HR of one of Big 4 firm. She had such an irritating tone for a HR. When I told my expected CTC, she went on to persuade me to quote lower number since they don't have budget. I even came down to a point since I wanted to get Big 4 Opportunity. She kept on saying a number which was not even 15% of my current package. Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs
Advice needed. Got a job offer from my dream company, 15k bump in salary, stock options, large jump in PTO, 40 hour work week and way better healthcare. So all in all a better opportunity. I feel guilty leaving my Big 4 job during this time. New company said I can take a month to wrap up some work at my current job if needed. Leaving now would leave my team drastically short staffed for the fall. New hires pushed till 1/1/21. Should I feel guilty? How do I tell them and not burn bridges?
Does industry have billable hours? At the big 4, we are required to work a certain number of hours each week and if we spend too much time on anything we are questioned on why it took so long. Is that a thing when you go in industry?
Just moved from Deloitte to RSM. Can definitely conclude that Big 4 people are relatively cocky bastards 😂
May anyone at EY help with a referral for FDD in the southeast? 5 years B4 experience. EY
Thoughts on leaving big 4 before a year to do valuations at A&M? In risk currently and looking to make a switch to something more interesting. Not sure what the long term growth is at A&M or what exit ops they have
High school GPA 2.8, community college GPA 3.6, transferred to a top 20 University GPA 2.0. Big 4 Consultant. GMAT 740. My goal is Northwestern for an MBA. Any chance? Or any other top 15 MBA program?
If I’m applying to another big 4 in a different location, and the interviewer asks why I haven’t asked to transfer within my own firm - what’s a good answer to that? (Continued Below)

Where is a new build???
Ah now it did.
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
Partner just called me 'babe'. Wtf?
If advancing is all about learning to sell clients on new projects. What's easier? To teach a consultant to sell or to teach a salesperson to consult?
