Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
Thoughts on switching from big 4 to mid tier?
How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
Had last stage interview b4 on-site last week and it went v well. I requested quick feedback cos I have 2 offers although this oppty is my top preference. It’s been a week of crickets. Should I wait?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
What is the range for a senior consultant in Advisory (FRA)? Currently at 100k (another big 4) in the dc area so what kind of bump should i expect
S1 in B4 deal advisory (FDD). any insight on how I might be able to transition to one of the other shops like A&M?
I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Recent grad hoping to switch to a big 4 firm. Undergrad recruiting went real shitty and I was wondering if experienced hire recruiting in general is as competitive?
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)
Anyone know the implications of having a side tax business while at a big 4? I have done returns in the past but setup an entity for liability protection. If I report it will there be an issue?
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
Facebook vs Google - What are some of the biggest work culture differences btwn the two? Particularly for someone coming from big 4 into tech.
Really wanna try secondment/global mobility program, but really want to quit PwC as well... do other big 4 do global mobility program too?

Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice

Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA). The offered role is of the same domain in which I've been working for the last 3.5 years @ACN. PWC are offering me a Senior Associate position. My question is - should I or can I negotiate with the HR to give me a better position (e.g. Manager) than the Senior Associate? Thanks in advance!
