I turned down an offer at PWC last year because they wouldn’t bring me in as a senior manager / director, even though I had/have 10 years experience in consulting at a diff Big 4. Is it worth reaching back out to the recruiter to see the needs in the practice?
I do NOT miss those pings from the HR folks bright and early on Mondays if I billed less than 40 hours the previous week. I’m NEVER going back to a B4 firm.
What’s considered a typical base % increase at the Big 4 for promotion from Manager to Senior Manager?
Any tax attorneys get exceptions from legal state CLEs since we aren’t in court or serving clients in a “traditional” legal capacity since we are in big 4?
In the process of being recruited by FTI Consulting, is their compensation and work/life balance a step up from B4?? Pretty over KPMG at the moment, I feel like anything is better than B4.
Thoughts on Masters in Environmental Management programs? UCSB, Yale, etc. I have a non-technical degree (Bachelor of Arts) and have been in management consulting at a Big 4 the last 5 years. I want to pivot my career to do something more meaningful - make a positive impact in the world, rather than continuing to help rich corporations get richer. Thinking that doing a Masters will help arm myself with environmental / sustainability knowledge and a network.
So EY announced yesterday in FAAS all hands that they aren’t following other firms with mid year raises, but did make a comment that last year they had historical raises and PBB and they expect that to be the case again this year. If you are at EY what percentage raise are you going to be expecting to stay with EY? Based on other B4 mid year raises I am thinking ~15% would be competitive if they aren’t going to do mid year raises. Thoughts?
I would say - having worked across B4 and Accenture. I will say Accenture, had such a huge impact on expanding my lens to a much more of a global mindset and engaging the global firm from the get go
How can I exit big 4 audit to a remote senior accountant job? The jobs at good companies seem hard to find when I search on my own. Should I use a recruiter? Thanks
Seeing as EY isn’t doing mid year raises as the other 3 of the big 4, I think it’s time for me to look elsewhere rather than waiting for recruiters to contact me as I did in the past.
Big4 MD vs a non Big 4 (GT/RSM) or Boutique (CFGI/A&M) Partner. Any thoughts on which is a better path for longer term compensation and leadership opportunities. For context, am a high performing MD - been in top 5 PPMD by book of business in my practice for last 5 years and endlessly waiting to for a Partner promotion. So thinking to move on and try non-Big 4’s.
How can one move from Big 4 consulting to asset management? Worth taking my IMC while working in my current role and then applying? Have several connections at Black-rock and BG too.
What percentage pay bump would you take to go from big 4 to a boutique firm? Level would probably be the same.
Moving from Deloitte to BCG soon. What can I expect as major challenges/differences when transitioning from big 4 to MBB?
I'm currently with Deloitte. I have prior experience at Accenture and 2 other B4 firms. Apart from the usual B4, B3 and T2 firms, what are some other companies that offer interesting consulting roles in data?
How much can I realistically negotiate an offer (big 4)? Lateral move and was offered $140K, no signing bonus
Is your company’s 2022 Summer Internship Program fully virtual, in person or hybrid? If hybrid - are you requiring relocation? Curious what consulting firms and Big 4 are doing.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This will be us in 6 months. Thinking of a portfolio shift to the reopening/epicenter plays. What do you guys think?

Hello Senior Fishes!! I am a campus recruit and I'm gonna join Deloitte USI possibly by July 2022. Deloitte USI hired me on campus in Sept 2021 when there were only 4 offices on paper and took our location preference. Now since 3 new locations have been added, is it possible for me to request the HR for Chennai location after receiving the offer letter? I live in Chennai and so what would be the odds of them accepting my request before joining ? Any input or advice will help :)
If you’ve already checked a bag, you have no reason not to gate check your carry-on IMO. Would alleviate much of the hassle associated with overhead bins!
