Is the bonus structure higher for big 4 M&A (EYP or S&DS) compared to regular big 4 consulting? Like is the bonus based on closed transactions like how banks pay their bonuses?
Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.
What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?

Why are big 4 bonuses atrocious?
Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
What do folks wear to work in the Big 4, specifically D? I am joining D soon and I was wondering if I need to buy formal wear. Currently at Amazon there’s no dress code so you can wear anything appropriate to work. Of course I am referring to when we all go back to office. Deloitte

Out of curiosity, what are exit opportunities for those in the tax field? Can we also transition easily to other pursuits such as Wealth Managemnt/IB or Consulting? Does audit/advisory have an easier transition into other roles as compared to those in tax? Or is it an un-said thing that we are on equal footing? Once had a B4 Partner laughed at me and told me, "Kid, get out of tax immediately. You'll be stuck there forever." Honestly, wtf did he mean? Appreciate honest/blunt answers 👍
