Jump. I heard BDO is WHAAAAACK

30% raise. Promotion. And big four? I’d just leave. It’s going to improve your career trajectory being in the big four. They can’t even really match it imo.

Just be prepared to stay with the new firm for a bare minimum of 2 yrs, preferably 3. Otherwise you risk being perceived as a flight risk to a new employer before you're even hired.

Leave! BDO always offers lower compared to other CPA firms.

Leave. We’re a sinking ship.

Low pay

Leave, Big4 is offering you more money and seniority. Not only that, there's a clear advantage with Big4 over BDO from a resume perspective. I came from BDO several yrs back, so speaking from experience.

like

Yeah leave. I left for EY. While honestly it's sometimes a little stupid that B4 has a premium from a reputation perspective (as I've seen some managers from B4 who were idiots compared to some managers at BDO - and vice versa), it exists. So if you're in public to learn what you can for just a few years before jumping, B4 will make a bigger jump easier

No, no don’t be afraid. Just leave. Your resume will shine with big 4 experience.

It’s a concern not worth having too much. No one will care. Switch to big4. It’s a big difference. If you were going the other way, I’m sure the masses here may even have advised against it.

I mean, before this year, two friends of mine went from BDO to Big4 and were brought in one level lower. So what they offered you sounded good to me.

Hi there! I’m being vetted for a position that I’d have to relocate for, they mentioned they’d pay for relocation. This would be my first role in senior leadership, and I’m just looking for tips on negotiating pay and other components of my offer letter. I’ve previously had an issue where I was brought in way under value, and it took 2 years to get a benchmarking raise. I just want to position myself highly upfront this time. Any ideas other than base pay I could and should negotiate? Thanks!

Hello I'm currently a Consultant in my second year at Accenture. Prior to that I had 10 years in industry. I had an initial conversation with TCS regarding an Industry Advisor position.

With that said can anybody shed some insight on what the move to TCS would be as Industry Advisor from the consultant with Accenture? Is that a level between M and SM at Accenture?
