I’m having a bad experience at a mid-market firm (RSM/BDO/GT) and want to pivot into B4. I’ve been at my firm for ~6 months and received offers from B4 when recruiting on campus cont.
If you have stock prior to joining big 4 that is proscribed, are you required to sell? Does anyone really check for senior level?
Why do people stay in Big 4? I’m currently a staff in FSO tax in NY. There doesn’t seem to be much of an incentive to stay. The pay isn’t great and the hours are awful.
If you already have an offer from Big 4 (same starting pay) and a very good chance to get an interview at MBB would you still go through the whole drill of case prepping etc? Is it okay to feel lazy?!
Partners - could you provide some insight how much big 4 partners make? Whether you're in big 4 or not - pretty sure you'd have an idea. Maybe give some kind of a range of what new partners earn ? Just want to know if it's worth it getting to the top. Also would love to hear your opinion if years of slogging it upward is actually worth it. Do you feel partnership is everything you thought it would be ? (Prestige, money, status, etc)? Thanks in advance !

Can anyone who has gone from B4 consulting to FAANG or similar places speak to how they got there and whether it was worth it?
Top15 public school with a 3.45 (bio major/premed), immediately after joined a random grad school in medical sciences but failed out (burn out and mental health issues), pivoted into B4 consulting, getting around 740 on practice tests - any advice/ chances for top 10 schools?

Anyone know how the cultures are like at the larger accounting firms (Big 4 or Mid Tier) out in Sacramento? Was looking to move to the area soon.
Would it be a fair statement to say that Moss Adams would give you a broader tax knowledge than a Big 4? I feel that big 4 requires you to specialize. What are your thoughts?

This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
