Yes, A1. And Pwc1 is a perfect example. Why would I ever want to invest my time and energy into someone with that attitude who will be gone in 9 months?

How long have you been working, OP? I think the bigger stigma would come from jumping jobs after a year or two at each, not necessarily moving at all.

As a B4 outsider, why do people form biased opinions in the first place?

I don't care about people's opinions but I am worried if that will affect my growth here.

I moved once cuz of turmoil in the team and once cuz I wanted to try some different stream of work.

These firms ain’t loyal

Your wrong I joined and left you a while ago :)
I've worked at every Big 4.
Signing bonuses are always nice.

Fake news

I spent at least 3 years at each place

Then you are good. This is an incestuous business. Jumping around isn’t bad as long as your aren’t perpetually getting cold feet like pwc1. At some point your resume just becomes toxic.

I gave a salary range to a couple recruiters for digital consulting positions and am not sure if it was relatively close to market value or not. Would you think this (admittedly wide) range is high, low, or reasonable? Any advice is appreciated!

Some info:

- Consultant 1 positions requiring 3-5 years experience

Definitely feels like big 4 is making comp much more competitive…I feel like it’s much closer to industry now. Outside of wanting a better WLB, would be hard to leave when there is so much unknown around promotions in industry vs big 4 no? Almost a step down in comp if already at manager or up in FDD…
