How flexible is moving into an industry focus at big 4? If I wanted to move from the core/generalist group to a specific industry like Tech, Healthcare, or F.S?
Received the “we regret to inform you” email from all big 4 consulting companies despite having referrals. (Obviously I know referrals aren’t a guarantee)What the hell do they want from you?!? Should I hire someone to do my resume? Do I just suck on paper? I have a degree, I have 4 YOE, every job I applied for I am well qualified for. I just don’t get it! Please help me this is so discouraging :(

Hi fellow Fishes, I have offer from Deloitte USI for one of the Oracle profiles. Right now, I am working at comparatively smaller company at 50% salary of what I have been offered but have a lot of opportunities onsite and to grow quickly. I am planning to do an MBA in a couple of years and then go for some better consultancy roles. Could anyone tell me how much this big 4 tag is going to help me? Or should I loyally stay with my current firm and prepare for MBA? Thanks in Advance

TIL that 'Big 4' = PWC, Deloitte, EY, and KPMG. Is Big 4 considered 'elite'? I've always viewed them as a step over from ACN, whereas I've seen Bain/BCG/McKinsey as a step up. Too much ACN Kool-aid?
As a manager in Big 4 I reported to a partner all the while I was at the firm, so acted as a de-facto director often with managed and sales revenue toy name. Didn't get promoted, however, so ended up exiting. Didn't quite land the best role but ended up with a SM title in industry. The role however has lesser responsibility in comparison to my big 4 role. How do people adjust with such misalignment?
Any Transfer Pricing or ITS attorneys here who successfully made the jump from big 4 to big law? Any advice?

Is consultant a post-MBA role at Bain?
I got issues. I find it difficult to approach certain seniors when I need to send a file with reviews and discuss stuff. I don't know why, but I'm kind of scared of them or something. It's difficult to explain this but it has been affecting my performance and I pledged that from today I will not hesitate when reaching out for help/updates but I done messed up again and had to hear a very well deserved snarky remark. What can I do to approach my seniors in a less fearful manner ?
