Is working for Big 4 doing Analytics really that bad? I’ve been getting offers and got scared seeing some comments/posts.
And now for a diversion…
Arthur Andersen came back to life in 2017 and is trading as Andersen Global (formerly WTAS). What if Andersen (re)created an association with the the AA offshoots (e.g., Huron, West Monroe, etc.) and added other smaller firms (e.g., Ignyte, AArete) to compete against the Big 4/Accenture. It would have a London HQ. Audit would be excluded from the scope of services for obvious reasons.

International tax manager with 7 years experience all at KPMG. Thinking about switching to industry to see it from a new perspective and do similar work from a different angle. How do you successfully transfer B4 skills/experience to industry (how do you find the right fit?), and how do you continue to learn and build your skills so that you’re still marketable and could boomerang back if it doesn’t work out in a few years? Am I asking too much?
Big 4 Partners, what is your take on mental health breaks? If an employee in your team takes a mental health leave would they be looked at unfavourably/ would someone’s candidature be shelved if they say they’re returning from a mental health break and looking for a job at your firm?
I work in a sub-team that is quite large, another colleague of mine joined a parallel sub-team that feeds into a larger team at the exact same time. We both had the same rank entering EY. He was promoted recently, I think with his sub-team being smaller, the budget may have been available for his promotion.
However, the work I do, ability I have, feedback I have received over the last 2-3 years has always been positive with "exceeding expectations". Am I hindered by being in a large sub-team?
I am new to healthcare consulting. Does anyone have advice on building relationships with clients? I am so used to having my head down and working. Now, I am in charge of managing client relationships.

No matter what I write at my job, everything gets torn apart. The process goes like this: I write the piece, go through four rounds of intensive internal edits, and then a senior team member takes over and rewrites it.
The senior team members tell me I'm one of the strongest writers on the team. And my coworkers go through the same thing or worse with their writing. But at this point, I don't even see the point in trying anymore.
Is it like this at all agencies?
I have given my interview and the recruiter collected my documents, pay slips expected ctc etc. It has been 2 weeks already and my recruiter told me they're waiting for Oracle approval. How long does it generally take? Do they reject these approval requests often? Anybody attended interview in July or August have received offer letter?
It seems the quickest to criticize are the ones doing nothing.
I'll take that reminder for myself keep my head down and grind harder.

How to set expectations for my last two weeks at big 4? I’m an associate and my senior keeps piling on more work during my last two weeks at the firm. I tried telling them that I need time to do offboarding stuff on my other clients like addressing coaching notes/uploading my documents for my teammates/other open items. But they seem to think that I’ll just work later to finish the work they give me. I don’t plan on working more than 40 hours. How can I set this expectation nicely but firmly?
