Anyone moved from Big 4 to Bain & co ? I am tech focussed, Sr developer with Cloud skills and Venturing into personal AI projects. What opportunities are out there in Bain & co ?
Got reached out for a role at big 4 again for which I didn’t clear the final round last time. Played along with the recruiter and now they want me to interview with the same MD as final round let time 😂
How can you land a place in big 4 with little experience? Graduate route or experienced professionals?
Can anyone provide insight on the internal audit/risk advisory services at the big 4 firms? I am interested in understanding more about work life balance, busy season (hours and length of season), hours during off season and the kind of client work done during off season. I am an experienced senior and almost finished my CIA.
Currently work for one of the Big 4 in HR (& Benefit, Payroll) strategy, transformation, and related work. My background has largely been HCM implementations, though it's been 3 - 4 years since my last one.
Looking for thoughts about what it takes to become independent.
1. If I want to go through an agency or someone who places independents, how do I find them (other than Google)?
2. How do I find out about rates I should charge? What about requirements such as insurance?
Top factors affecting day to day work going from a partnership (B4) to a public company?
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?
Looking to exit out of big 4 and exploring other opportunities. Anyone aware of their firm is hiring and willing to provide a referral?
9 YOE in audit in 3 countries… but no US CPA (I have ACCA). What are the chances of landing a big 4 audit stint in the US (Manager above)? I’m happy to take Senior if it pays well but doubt that.
…or possibilities for other opportunities?

How do you avoid paying as much taxes as possible?
I am going to make the most I’ve ever made this year (~250k).
I don’t usually max out my 401k, and I plan to buy a house, so I was planning to keep more cash, but maybe I should max it out this year?
I’ve contributed to a RothIRA this year ( I didn’t expect to make more than $144k this year… until today). I assume I have to do something to change this contribution since I’ll be over the income limit.

Would you be honest or just put something like work life balance. I have worked with really shitty people. It would be several. Like base compensation, skills not fully utilized, firm culture, communication issues, etc
Who manages PwC’s 401(k)?
Serious dilemma here - im a senior at a midsize firm and I just got permission from the Partner in my current group and the Partner of another group to switch after busy season. Within 3 weeks of that I got my first EVER review of “keep developing” from my current group. I know it’s related because my performance hasn’t changed, but should I speak up and say this isn’t right? I think they are just documenting something negative because attitudes have changed.
