If moving from D S&O to MBB, do you take a step back? i.e. Manager (big 4) to Consultant/Associate etc (MBB). This true?

Depends on your experience. If you're a brand new manager, might come in as a "second year consultant" so you can get your feet under you - we are a different company. But any senior manager Im sure would come in equal.

Going the other way, I know people leave us for Big4 etc and get promotions doing so...

Not sure if anyone would hire someone at a manager level for an associate one at their firm. I see you thinking it's okay but why would an employer do that? Not sure how lateral hires work at mbb's.

SA1. Not true. It's very rare but it happens if you have connections

Does Deloitte use outside recruiters? Wondering because I got contacted from a 3rd party recruiter for Deloitte positions. Somehow I got the impression that Big 4 reach out to the candidates themselves. Has anyone at Big4 heard about someone hired via an outside recruiter recommendation?

EY break up (and subsequent break ups at the rest of the big 4) is excellent for those of you who are already in the consulting arms of those companies, terrible if you’re in their audit practice. So I wonder, for those of you that flex into both, what’s your take?

I start work at a Tier 2 (ish) firm this summer. I learned about consulting only this year so I never had a chance to even apply to MBB. I’m really bothered by this and want to try by all means to get into MBB via lateral. When should I start applying? Right away? After 1 year? Id also like to avoid doing an MBA

Can someone explain like I'm 5 the logic of offering/not offering OT?

Is this like out of the goodness or their hearts? Why does this salary role have OT but most of accounting roles don't?
