I moved from B4 to the industry last year to join a new team. My peer is an internal transfer and our roles are pretty complimentary so we have to work together on many areas. Since she joined the team, she has been stepping on my toes. To be continued in the comments.

She has relationships w/ many folks and they assign her tasks which are part of my role. They know we both are working on it but when you see the status of the tasks rolled up only her name shows up to the upper mgmt. She does help me learn the company’s background etc. so would like to keep a good working relationship for the long run. But I don’t want to be taken advantage of either. Do I bring this up to my Manager? If yes, how can I tactfully discuss it?

I’m looking for some resources and/or recruiters to help me find a job in Houston. I worked in Big 4 audit for a year and 4 months. I am currently working in global finance/accounting for a major record label. I would like a financial analyst, staff accountant, or an internal audit position (ordered in preference from most wanted to least). I have also considered joining Big 4 again but only if it is an advisory position like FDD or deals. Thank you in advance!

Am I wrong in thinking IB is the only field where your base is pretty much is standardized across whether you're at a BB, MM, etc (unless it's a really really tiny shop)?

I notice for consulting, I think B4 vs MBB is kind of comparable to non-BB international banks vs BBs, but just base alone is a huge difference? And same thing with tech/industry?


Hi Fishes,

If I have offers from 2 Big 4s' in hand. Can I show the offer from one of the Big 4 to another and renegotiate to get a higher CTC?
Genuine advice please.


I just finished undergrad freshman year at Emory University with a 3.36 GPA. It was primarily my first semester that brought me down(Got a 3.1 first semester and 3.7 second semester). I'm really scared that I have down my prospects because of the first semester. I feel like I have no shot at things anymore. Initially I wanted MBB(MBB recruiting picked up a massive amount at Emory undergrad this year) but I know there's no chance. What should I do to have some shot at Big 4 consulting

Started at Slalom a few months ago after multiple big 4 stops. Best decision I’ve ever made for my career. If you’re current B4 and want to learn more, let me know. They’re building something truly great though and happy to be a part of it.

Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM)
1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service.
2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great -
3) you make a real impact on clients.


How easy is it to negotiate a 10-15k signing bonus with 1.5 YOE at big 4 when leaving for industry? Going to try to use that to pay back my retention bonus.


Do the other B4 have the same benefits that were announced for D,or did they always have something similar...ie sneakers, any commuting to the office, etc?

I was previously a contractor on staff aug project and have now accepted a full time position as a Consultant with Big 4 which I’m super excited about. Problem is now coworkers from the old team are..


I’m in B4. I feel I get passed over on raises because I don’t ask for more. I know I need to get over the attitude of “if I work harder they will appreciate me more and give me bigger raises”. I need to push this year and say it’s my turn. But it’s not natural for me…. This causes me to be unhappy but only myself to blame.


Just curious. Why would a Partner have short stints at firms after having been a Partner for 12 years at a Big4? Was browsing LinkedIn and saw an Audit partner’s work history. They don’t seem to be currently employed.
Listed most recent: Midtier - 1.5 yrs, Another Big 4 - 2 months
