One thing about the Big 4, they will use and abuse you if you let him. They dont give a damn about worklife balance, your personal career wants, or your advancement. They want you to stay where they want you to be.
Would Publicis Sapient MC practice have exit ops at the same level as Big 4? Or is their brand name closer to Tier 2 strategy consulting firms and MBB?
I can't find a product marketing bowl so coming here - what are some questions I would get in an interview versus a typical PM role?
Well the other big 4 never has to worry about losing the Oscars gig again, after that performance. Well done PWC...
Fish community! Looking for freelance consulting / advisory help: Building a healthcare / technology / combo product / service line for sale to city governments / police departments. Anyone have experience with selling to city / county / police and can help with the intricacies of the sales process (and introductions) perhaps? What’s an example of a comparable so we can find the right person for this engagement? Could consider a contract-to-hire role for the right profile. TIA!
Did anybody go through the interview process with Deloitte for an SM role? Do you know what exactly they look for other than business development? I'm currently a director with PwC.
Seems big 4 has insight to rating and bonuses early. Any idea on ACNs?? I feel like nobody knows this shit till November for us
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
I am starting a new role with a new company and will have 6 direct reports. Although I have managed teams before in a consulting project setting, this will be the first time in industry. Any recommendations on how to sharpen my management skills (books, blogs, etc). Particularly looking at how to delegate effectively and practical examples on how to run day to day.
Any insights on Gartner? Interviewing for a Director role with them. General thoughts on culture, comp, career progression?

Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
Moving from a boutique (<30 employees, MBB competitor) to the strategy practice of a Big 4. Have only worked for boutiques in the past, so I’m expecting there to be some major differences in terms of working style. What are the major differences and ‘watch outs’ you would point out to me? Could be anything from culture, to red tape, to compliance etc.
I've been following posts on people's reactions to India and Indians on this blog. I'm of Indian descent and raised in the West. Do I have a risk of being stereotyped as "Indian" if I try to join B4?
What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
Nervous for my campus visit. Not even applying or interviewing yet and im already nervous!

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?

EY PAS vs PwC Workforce Transformation? Rep, culture, types of projects, etc. Entry-level
I have a phone interview for a position that doesn’t have a clear average salary but I have an idea of what their cap is. If I’m asked about salary requirements, is it bad to give a range cont
Have a TS and in the reserves. Finally coming to grips I may have some mental health challenges...could I loose my TS if I see someone/am diagnosed?
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
Hey guys, I'm thinking of going back to TAS after a stint in corporate but don't want to move to cities with TAS practices. Are there any mid-tier firms (GT/RSM type firms - I came from Big 4 TAS) that are hiring fully remote aside from traveling for management meetings/workpaper reviews.
