I accepted an offer at Deloitte and start in three weeks. I am also in processes at another Big 4 and MBB. If I get substantial better offers from them, would it be crazy to leave D after a couple months? Start dates for other potential offers are Jan 3.

I would def take an MBB offer if presented. Just don’t spend all of the signing bonus.

I would just take the 2 months off if you’re able 😊

Definitely not crazy to leave D after a few months for MBB. In fact, you’d be crazy not to. Leaving might be a little awkward with coworkers but they’ll understand it given the firms involved. For another big 4 it’s a different story. If the offer is significantly higher for the same role then it makes sense. Maybe see if D can match it? Otherwise, not much reason to burn a bridge. I wouldn’t go two months without pay, but that’s just me.

Agree with this. Don’t go without the pay. Take MBB no hesitation if offered. Take other B4 only if offer significantly better & Deloitte doesn’t match.

Call your recruiter and ask if you can push start date if you can go a few months without pay.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Currently make 75k in a low cost of living area as a government employee. Big 4 tax background with 5 years experience. Currently working in regulation. I have an opportunity to move back into tax but the catch is it’s in San Francisco. Offer is 130k with a target 10% bonus and 5% pension contribution. Based on my pay and what my spouse could make in SF the pay differential would be a slight decrease based on COL. I’m not seeing a bright future in my government career due to continual budget...
