is leaving B4 too early seen as a red flag? Been here <1 year and have a better job offer in terms of salary (>50%). Should I take it or hold until promoted to SC?
Looking for some perspective and advice. I’ve moved to an in-house analytics organization for a large fortune 10 company and have prior experience with a big 4 and a startup as head of analytics & data science.
Received an offer at an advertising agency for a senior role (slightly more money) and torn on taking the offer or not. This would be my first stint with an ad agency. Potential reasons against: 1) risk? I’m in the safe side already 2) longer hours? 3) less upside growth potential?

Any job reference in big 4 in Kolkata for Marketing/Operations domain? I am an MBA with Marketing.
Looking to break into the consulting world, preferably the big 4. I have an undergrad in Business mgt and pursing MS in quantitative Fin. Any suggestions on what area in consulting I should try to look in with those qualifications?
How competitive is my profile? 3.5/750, ORM, will have 4 years B4 strategy consulting experience upon matriculation, ECs are okay, no special story. Looking for chances at non-HSW M7s.
Has anyone FIREed after working for a few years as an SM at Big 4? What did you do after quitting? Coast fire and work an easy job? Passive income? How much did you have banked ?
How to switch to FAANG? Any advice/ experience? Being a noob, have no insight and considering moving (when things get stable). Find myself a misfit for B4.
I have worked at one large(top 10) and now at a smaller(200 employee) firm. I’ve gotten quick promotions at each in Outsourced Accounting to a management level. I’m working on CPA should be done in March. I’m wondering if I could get a job in B4 or if I don’t have the right kind of experience. Any insight?
I need some advise on my situation. I have 4 YOE and am currently at B4 in the Middle East making ~$70k (no tax). I’ll be getting promoted to manager in Oct (~90k). I applied for a role at a government owned company and was told the TC would be 140-155k. When I got the offer, they asked for my current salary and then only offered 127k. I’m standing firm by saying I want 147k, middle of the original range. How would you play this? Im an expat and don’t intend on being here forever.
With 3 more days till CPA score release, how embarrassing is it to fail AUD if your a big 4 auditor?
B4 Manager and up those who stuck around for a while - Do you still have the pride that you had (if you did) when you first started with the firm? Or has it faded away?
Need input. Stay at current firm (big 4, base 100k) or go into industry for a lesser known company offering 120k base 5% bonus? Benefits are better than big 4.
Would it be easy to go back to big4?
Happy Friday Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral.
Finally have data after the past 6 months - over half of my referrals got interviews. 20% offers. This is much higher than applying on your own.
I’m more than happy to help:
- Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.)
- Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep / the firm
- Share tips for the new BCG interview format
Anyone here know about salaries (base and increase) for consultants working in mid-size firms? Seems pretty uncommon so I’d love to discuss/learn more. Also would love for any B4 people to chime in.
I’m currently applying for jobs in the Netherlands as a workforce Consultant and can’t for the life of me seem to pass the testing, mostly the abstract reasoning testing. Is there some way I can get better at this or a way I can convince recruiters to still give me an interview? I’ve worked at a big 4 in Australia previously and am at a loss as to why Dutch companies even still do this testing for experienced hires.
If switching from one big 4 firm to another how does switching over cell phone plans work?
Unlimited PTO? Big 4:
Why are people in public (Big 4 especially) so goddamned fake? Is this the nature of every sweat shop?

Culture, WLB, Pipeline etc. Thanks!
Nothing brings me more joy than telling me coworker he’s an idiot for not selling AMC when he finally makes profit after being down almost 80%. Messaged me right at 945 to flex, I hit him back at 1230
The one piece of work you wish you’d done.😭😭😭
This may be controversial... and I'm not expecting a lot of answers... but what is your position, what is your salary? And how long have you been in the business?

I am looking to transition into consulting. I see chatter on other bowla that MBB hiring is on 🔥. I have a PhD in mechanical engineering plsu 7yoe in sales and project management. Would anyone be willing to look at my resume and provide feedback and possibly referrals?
Typically if you’re jumping from big four to the national/ mid-tier, is there a pay raise or is the thought that you’re gonna get comparable pay for less hours? Maybe a promo jump? This is all theory crafting - FYI.
Need some candid answers. Often times (like many) I feel underpaid, so I’m trying to do some market research for future consulting positions. What would someone in public sector consulting doing change management work - 7 years of experience, a masters degree, and living in a high col city in the US - make as a manager? I appreciate your support ladies! Tis the season for equal pay and going after what we deserve.
