It’s probably a better opportunity and if you don’t like it you can at least get a pay raise in your next job.

Thanks for the input.

Switch to the big four. Your career will look very very different in positive ways. The mid tier firms are also attached to smaller businesses that make them more apt for layoffs. For example, DHG.

My friend is on her 4th firm in 2 years, there is so much demand that it’s understandable right now. Do what’s best for you. I would take the job at Deloitte and expect to work long hours!

What are the “culture activities” you are missing out on? You are probably a bit younger than me but honestly, WFH is incredibly beneficial to my mental health. No amount of culture activities make up for the bullshit involved with being in-office. I’d take the remote position without a doubt

funny

Having trouble understanding what you're asking here. From your post it sounds like you like where you are but don't want to be remote. You also have a Big4 offer (assuming Deloitte) which most likely will be hybrid schedule. So if you want to stay at your current firm, why not ask if you can do hybrid schedule? If you want to go Big4 for the resume then it's a no-brainer.

Right. It’s Deloitte. I’m thinking resume, but it’ll also show on my resume that I left a job after only 4 months. My current firm is on the east coast. I’m in the Midwest.
