I’m 23 and <1 year in consulting since graduating. I work at a lesser known firm doing big 4-comparable work, and lately I’ve been feeling anxious about my choice in starting company. From LinkedIn research and general lack of awareness of what I really want to do, I feel like the lack of prestige of the company I started with will prevent me from succeeding big in the future. Anyone have success stories or advice?
I’m up for promotion for a senior role, but also got a management consulting offer (associate) at a B4. The consulting role sounds more interesting on paper, but not sure which to choose
I recently got offer from Deloitte India as Consultant Role. When I was happy that I got into Big 4 My Friend told me that there is another company Called Deloitte USI which is like actual Deloitte and Deloitte India (DI) is just small company with less people and said avoid DI as Work is not great and having poor wlb. Is it true guys? what is the different between USI and DI? Both are good right? Can I consider the offer from DI over Wipro? Expecting good wlb. TIA @deloitte
Can someone take me through how you can jump ships to another big 4 whilst doing minimal damage in terms of how/when you inform your team. I know it happens a lot, but personally its my first time doing something like this. Who do I reach out to first and what’s the protocol?
What should I expect the Senior Manager salary range at PwC to be for tech consulting? 5 years of Big 4 experience. 7 years of industry experience before that.
Are there any Big 4/big consulting Marketing fish here? If you are a Salesforce shop, I’m curious if you have to submit thousands of Aprimo forms to get your work done? Have other B4 adopted a Salesforce process structure that has turned you into nothing but form fillers?
Thought's on KPMG Singapore? Heard the work-life balance is comparatively better than other Big 4 but pay might be slightly less.
How long should one ideally stay before leapfrogging?
My experience at Deloitte Australia data modernisation group as been a pretty underwhelming so far. If I have to look for other options which other big 4 should I target in Australia.
How much can a tax M3 making $150k base in NY expect if they bounce to another Big 4 or go to industry?
Any HR/Change Management professionals here working for a non consulting company that is 100% remote (in the US)? If so, does your company accept candidates working out of Canada? Would love to chat as the market in Canada is quite restricted. I have close to 6 years big 4 experience in human capital (and currently employed but looking for a change)
For B4 equity partner/principals- how do put a value on pension in terms of annual replacement cost and years invested? In conversations with a public firm and need to put a line in the sand for offer
Interested in breaking into MM IB from B4 FDD. What is the best way to go about networking?
If you’re Senior 3 and acting manager already, how likely can you find an industry job with manager title (ie Internal Audit Manager)? Some industry jobs for IA Manager ask for like 7-10 years of experience but the job description is honestly just Senior level work.
I’ve seen people at my clients in so called Manager roles with 10 years of experience who struggle to do the basics of what a Big 4 Senior does.
Hi Fishes, I am currently working with big 4 as a senior consultant in SAP FICO. YoE- 7.8. I have niche skills such as FSCM CCD, ML, etc. what can I expect as a package from Accenture? I currently have a ctc of 20.5lpa. 18.5 is fixed.
Can anyone offer any insight on what an Risk Assurance - Internal Audit & Enterprise Risk role entails? Looking to transfer from industry to Big 4 possibly.
Is everyone excessively leaving at the Big 4 across the board or is it just PwC? Seems like everyone is leaving or searching.

Any good resources for those starting in crypto? Seems to be a lot of info out there and not a lot of “here is how it is done” without all the BS and fluff.
Maybe asked a different way, if you could start off on crypto again, what would you do differently (besides not buying a pizza with bitcoin and not mining bitcoin).
Thanks for the help as I venture into this crazy place!
