Big 4 vs top 10. For core tax, how different is the work? Are there certain things you probably won't run see unless you are B4? How bad is the pigeon-holing, what level does it typically occur at?
Has anyone been denied by another b4’s TAS/FDD service group but been able to apply for the same role at another/same office? And if so, how soon after?
Thoughts or insights on feasible Acct/Finance/consulting positions ranked by highest compensation post Big 4 Sr. Audit Associate?
Does BAH pay better than big 4?
I have heard of at least one International tax staff being offered $120k to start at Big 4 (Boston). Is he lying, or have starting salaries become this inflated?
Does KPMG have a student loan repayment program? How does it work? How does it compare to other big 4 firms?

What other big 4 call these advisory/consulting service lines: consumer finance, finance effectiveness, credit risk advisory and strategy consulting? Trying to transfer to one of those service lines.
You guys after a point feel like the prestige and pride of big 4 fades away? Ure basically left with some fancy English words and a below average pay

I recently got a verbal from B4 firm but have yet to receive the written (going on 2 weeks now). I have recently received another verbal offer from a different B4 firm. How should I negotiate with the original firm for more $? What would you say? This is my first time switching jobs so fairly new.
Best time to move from Audit into B4 FDD? Recently started as an A1 but looking to make the move within a year or so hopefully
Best and worst of the Big 4? Serious inquiry, not here to make fun of KPMG or hype one up... And please provide why TIA :)
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
Currently at a boutique cybersecurity firm where the strategy has shifted to MSSP focus. Most projects have been strategy engagements leading to transformations. Industry vs Big 4 vs MBB?
I joined B4 after college in 2019 and ever since working as QA, mainly manual/ functional testing. Can't see any progress work wise in same projects/teams. Before job, I wasn't a complete nerd but I did have some sense of programming so I wish to use that in my real life work in future. Can someone suggest how should I use my spare time so as to not be stuck in manual testing or testing itself? I'm somewhat lost when thinking of career progression after maybe next 5 years.
Is McK hiring Digital people ?

Hi everyone. What is the typical interview process like for tech Bizops roles? Are the case interviews similar to the ones we do in the consulting industry with the scenario based on the company we’re interviewing for? Thanks in advance.
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
What’s the correlation between compensation & happiness? I have never been a very happy person (depressed from time to time) and my comp is only 150k. What compensation do I need to reach so that I can become immediately happy? 200k, 300k, 500k?
This article is a good read in terms of how to handle the COVID-19 crisis: https://blog.shrm.org/blog/promoting-workplace-mental-health-in-the-age-of-covid-19
To hell with coronavirus and lay-off threats. I’m having myself a nice ribeye steak dinner with some healthy veggies.
Basic question from a noob in SF - What is the best home internet provider in SF? What’s your suggestion for the best deal. Wife and I WFH so wanna make sure internet is firmed up!
I have to say, R/GA is probably by far the worst “agency” to work at. Their culture and core values as a company are close to zero. This agency is heavily sugar coated. Welcome to R/GJail.
Interviewing at Mckinsey. Need help with case interview prep. Any suggestions beside self-help books?
Any ideas on fun team bonding events/games to improve culture in a new remote tech startup? Very small team with long work hours, we are trying to build a people culture but hard because we can’t see much of peoples personalities through Zoom meetings much.
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
I need to file a work visa petition in a Schengen state. The visa is for a year and I need insurance for it. Does the Axa Schengen multi trip works for me? Because coverage says 90 days consecutive. Or should I buy 2 180 consecutive ones?
Friendly late 20s woman fish here who hasn’t been feeling good enough to be in consulting or run a business. I don’t know what’s going on but even with all of my accomplishments I feel worthless. I’m in therapy so I’m sure there’s a rainbow somewhere but I’m wondering if anyone else has felt like this and what you’ve done to get past it? I’ve thought of reading more books on my craft and doing affirmations but I’m like internally smh at everything.
Anyone have recommendations for foods that help with anti-inflammatory symptoms and/or gut health? Please don't say yogurt, I can't stand the texture.
Perks of being laid off and working local: no more flight and hotel reminders, no more shitty project, less politics and back biting. After 10 years I can say I have a life now.
