How's the corporate marketing function at ACN? SO being recruited from Big 4 internal marketing to comparable level at ACN. She's not loving second-tier status that internal roles seem to have at Big4

Same shit different colors. Go client facing or youll always be tier 2, as you should.

Won’t be that much different from Big 4, and you could argue we have more complexity bc we’re public and we’re geographically focused (most Big 4 have separate entities within countries). However, new CMO starts in January and wants to revamp marketing function.

Depends on the team and who they would report to...and yes things may get shaken up by new CMO (just came from Deloitte).

EY1, it's not me. My SO. And she's as much a professional as we are so chill with the judgement. The group is health vertical. Interesting about new CMO. Thx guys.

@Op I’m sure she is professional, but internal facing roles are always tier 2 in the big4. Sorry bruh

This isn't big 4 phenomenon. Internal functional roles always have less clout. Same for us. Same for industry roles.

Not a judgement. Sad you cant accept reality "bruh."

As much a professional as client facing sure. Ad valuable? Not even close

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Received an offer from a smaller consulting firm helping build out a new practice with the same work I am doing now. It is a $20k pay raise however I do really enjoy who I work with and really have no reason to leave besides money. I’m afraid to switch and not like it and be miserable but it is an offer that’s very hard to say no too and everyone I interviewed with was great and came from other big 4’s. I’m still very early on in my career.. two years out of college. Any thoughts and opinions?
