I have no idea, but I’ve seen people switch from IBM to B4 and then move very high up the ranks. I’d assume the experience is transferable.

Not really, at least not at Deloitte. IBM associate partner is closest to a Deloitte Senior Manager.

I have worked at one large(top 10) and now at a smaller(200 employee) firm. I’ve gotten quick promotions at each in Outsourced Accounting to a management level. I’m working on CPA should be done in March. I’m wondering if I could get a job in B4 or if I don’t have the right kind of experience. Any insight?

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
