I just accepted this offer but am wondering if it was a good one. I only had 1 year of experience at Big 4 (Tech Consulting). Offer from Square was $95k + $70k RSU [across 4 yr vesting schedule] in ATL. Thoughts?

Certainly sounds more interesting if nothing else. I would've taken it

It’s a great offer. Take it, get some actual tech experience, vest your stock, and live it up in ATL. You can always come back to consulting later.

Excellent offer. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong

For one year solid but not great

Offer is good! Supplementing big 4 with tech is an excellent combo. If you’re purely motivated by dollars, you could make more sweating it out in tech consulting. But I’d wager you’ll learn a heck of a lot more at Square. The days of consulting providing better exits the longer you stay are over — tech is on-par or better. Out of curiosity, what is the role?

I had 8 years of experience almost 5 at big 4 when I interviewed at Square. They gave me 115 base and 50k stock options this was late 2019 and I turned them down because they refused to budge. The following year their stock quadruples. For 1 year of experience I think its a good offer. I interviewed for Atlanta location as well.

Take the offer. Good base for 1 YoE and the RSU will double within a year

Would anyone that has moved from Big 4 to MBB be willing to chat for 15-30 minutes? I’m hitting a point where I am enjoying consulting (advisory) but I’m not sure the idea of narrowing in on a specific industry and exact skillset appeals to me. Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).

Hi EY and Fishes everywhere! I might be getting an offer to join tax as an S1 (or exp. assoc), probably not being able to start until mid August based off how the process has been. However, I currently work at a mid size firm and we’re already getting into busy season. How would it look if I asked EY to postpone my start date till after 10/15 and say that I’m not ready to be thrown into a Big 4 busy season and that I don’t want to leave my current firm out to dry. Thank you all so much! @EY
