If layoffs would need to happen, how would they look like in a B4? What percentages? what levels? What criteria would they use to lay off people? What is the probability of this happening this year?
How is quality of life different of an MBB partner and a B4 partner. Is it really still a grind at MBB at that level? I have never seen a stressed MBB partner so not sure if it’s just a facade.
In Big 4 audit, is there any time frame later in the night in which you should just wait until the next morning to send client emails? Anything past 9pm? Or is it fair go to send whenever before midnight
Got reached out to by a recruiter for a Principal Consultant Role at Infosys. Does anyone know what the equivalent t level is at big 4 firms and any insight into the role ? Thanks!
Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

For those that went from Big 4 to industry, please summarize how your first couple of months went. Any advice?
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
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?
What other consulting firms have a prominent supply chain consulting practice besides MBB, the Big 4 accounting firms, and Kearney?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
do any consulting firms in the US (MBB, Big 4) sponsor MBA programs outside of the country (e.g. London Business School, HEC Paris, INSEAD)
Big 4 salary is such a meme out of college, lateraling to MBB and my total comp is 2.2x as much -_-
Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
What are typical entry levels for consulting managers from the big 4 and EM/PL from MBB at Google? L5/L6 ?
Partners, what would be a typical monthly pension check be for MBB / Big 4? All firms welcome.

Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back. They recorded a deferred gain of $1M and amortized it over the term of the lease (still going) and letting that gain every month reduce the rent expense. Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments. Debating how to quantify the adjstmnt
