Transitioning to another big4 advisory practice next month. Worried about networking and learning a new role virtually. Any advice? Anyone else make a transition during COVID?
Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
Is there a difference between biz ops and regular strategy and ops role at Google ? They reached out for stat ops role but I heard biz ops is more consulting .
Can anyone from Deloitte explain the difference between cloud strategy practice vs cloud engineering practice at Deloitte? Comp difference, career trajectory, exit ops, etc.. Thanks

Hi Guys, Can you please refer me for the role of Python/PySpark developer if you have vacancies in your organization.
Any advice for going about an internal transfer to another team? From ops to a more client facing role? What’s the best way to go about this politically without setting myself up for failure? Talking to HR and the prospective team first?
I went T2>MBB and am thinking of going back to T2 because I prefer to aim for partner (MBB is not sustainable for me) rather than taking industry exit... Is this a dumb move? I’ll be dropping pay slightly but with better working hours one step below partner vs industry at ‘head of’ level...
Does Deloitte take a while to get back with applications? I applied 3 weeks ago with a referral and haven’t heard back
Considering applying for an entry level business analyst (consulting) position at a competitor Big 4 firm. I just completed my first year in audit, so I’m wondering if it’s still appropriate for me to apply as entry level instead of experienced hire?

Howdy fish, currently interviewing at KPMG for a associate role in major projects advisory. I’ve gone through the phone screening and the interview with 2 directors. Next interview is with 2 SM. What kind of questions can I expect in that interview?
Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team.
Applied for an SM position at pwc and interviewers mentioned that it is for an SM position as well. But the offer came out as M. Recruiter said it is just a title and doesn’t have any implications but more I look, it does look like an downgrade. Is this common? I am currently an SM and it is in tech consulting area.
How did your responsibilities change from being a junior to mid level to a senior position? What are the different expectations for each level?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

Moving to NYC from Europe. Gonna make 170-180k pre Bonus. My partner is a student in NYC. How much rent can I afford in the city if I want to still have a fun life. My partner can chip in 1.5 to 2k per month.
The idea that the vaccine will somehow be dangerous in the future is kind of ludicrous to me. Do those saying this really believe that something that could essentially wipe out 170M Americans, including the president, pretty much the entire medical industry, university students, and others would be this heavily recommended by lifelong experts? Do those saying this really think they’re smarter than everyone else?
Stay on a project leaning absolutely nothing but get promoted because it’s a high profile client or ask to roll off the client and actually learn something but give up your chances on a promotion? Which is better?

Need some advice on career path change from a QA Lead to Scrum Master/Program Manager. Currently working for a Big 4 firm leading multiple teams for my project.

On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Simone Biles showed the world that there’s no such thing as the wrong time to prioritize your health and safety. It might be inconvenient and costly, but it is never wrong.
How far out can you typically set up interviews? Can I take two weeks before first interview?
