I’m newer to consulting and I genuinely don’t understand why there is the big 4 and then MBB. What’s the difference between these groupings of top firms?

Deloitte has blurred the lines by creating MMBD, however. 😂

We previously had the Big5 and more than likely the next change will be the Big3.

BDO is a legit firm?

RSMGT? GTBDO? A merger between GT and either RSM or BDO.

Years ago there was activity between GT and Moss Adams, but that fell through. There was speculation at some point that EY was contemplating roping in GT.

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
