Tax speciality group with a minor is MIS. Or do the advisory route if you want to get paid the most over the first 5 years. However, advisory means traveling just about every week and living in a hotel so it’s a trade off

Honestly probably wouldn’t have done big 4 at all. I want to get into FP&A and it’s real tough for me right now when all I’ve done is audit. Could’ve just been a financial analyst from the start and been a FP&A manager at this point

Less than the other LoS and have fewer specialized exit opportunities. I probably would go back and do a tax specialty group.

Definitely would’ve chosen PwC over Deloitte. Even would’ve chosen KPMG over Deloitte. And advisory for sure

@ey2 it is pretty wild that getting an FPA role out of b4 isn’t as easy as you’d think. I went to FDD after audit so that In several years I can easily transition to an FPA strategy role

Hi! Any Canadians here to offer perspective on current salary? I have a Masters and 2+ years of total internship experience, have been at a Big 4 firm (advisory) for about a year now. Salary is 56k + no bonus but OT. Wondering if I am super underpaid and should consider exiting esp. with no comp increase/promo this year?

Would really appreciate your advice: pre-covid I was in talks to join 3 of the big 4. Covid happened and they decided not to move forward due to the uncertainty. Now, I have interviews with Guidehouse. I’m a BA at a no name org and would really like to move on. If I decide to go to Guidehouse, how easy/difficult would it be to go back to private sector consulting vs. public sector consulting, assuming I am doing private sector consulting now? WWYD?
