I’m wondering what Accenture is actually doing. Is it more like a Big 4 Firm, doing theoretical consulting things. Or is it more a IT-Service/ Outsourcing company like Connection, Atos, Bechtle, etc. doing hands on technical things? Where is the main focus on?
Which big 4 firms have commercial practices located in NOVA? Does KPMG Strat work out the Tysons office?
Talked to a big 4 recruiter for lateral move and seems like Im currently making more than what they can offer me even though they really like my resume. I guess I should just stick with my job?
Let’s see how entry level accounting salaries have increased (or not) over time. I started in September of 2014 with a mid-market firm in tax at $53k in a non-HCOL city. Your turn..
If I took a part time MBA program, can I still campus recruit for a summer role at MBB, Big 4, FAANG, etc?
If you were laid off or fired would you apply for your current job? I was laid off from Big 4 audit in 2016 after working there for 2 years and it was one of the best things to happen to me. 1. It allowed me to reflect and decide what was important in my next career. 2. Losing a job isn’t as frightening as it seems. 3. Accountants have major job security as I got a job offer within 2 weeks. When you’re miserable at work ask yourself would you apply for your current job?
Let’s say average B4 first year partner draw is $400k with 5th yr average being $550k. Does anyone agree or disagree strongly with the below very general averages: Tier 2 (GT/BDO/RSM) - yr1 $325k; yr5 $400k Tier 3 (ranking 7-20) - yr1 $275k; yr5 $350 Regionals - yr1 $225k; yr5 $300k I’m trying gauge what the long term comp difference would be at different firms assuming all other factors equal. TIA fishes!!
Currently a PhD at a M7. Veteran, and obviously used to be at EY. Currently in qualifying phase and starting to looking to post-PhD life. How do the firms differ in how they treat advanced degrees (ie stick to PhD area or are you a generalist)? How do federal vs commercial practices differ when recruiting advanced degrees? I recognize that there might be a pay differential (pay isn’t important, I don’t want to go back to B4 due to tax/consulting dichotomy), just would be great to be federal.
OMG. This toolbag is clearly Of The Big 4 Tribe, but apparently travels with an actual fucking guitar (!) and is such a precious flower his rollaboard is longitudinal to the overhead compartment.
I’m curious what companies/groups handle FDD for large public company deals? Our FDD group (a big 4) seems to only work on private deals.
Not the biggest Ramsey team fan, but I agree with most of this video. I can wait to see how Gen Z shapes the Big 4. https://youtu.be/xTiaMxnQ6rc
Humble question: How do you know you're good enough? I'm a high performer at a local boutique firm in South Africa, looking to apply internationally at MBB/Big 4/Tier 2 (recruitment esp. international is a separate discussion). Since I've only ever been with one firm, I don't have a yardstick to compare myself to. I'm concerned about whether I match up with my peers at other firms. Any advice, experience or 2c on the above is appreciated.
Started with big 4, now at BDO.. work in IT audit (have had very successful fast tracked career in IT audit) and at Manager rank. Interested in moving over more-so to cyber security type consulting and escaping the IT audit prison (aren’t we all lol). Any advice on education / certificate requirements on how to transition more-so into cyber type space?

Sorry to be rude on our first date, but to all the account managers out there — what’s your salary? And any senior social media managers? Asking for a friend...

Agree or Disagree? Remote teaching = more parental involvement. If you agree, do you think this is for the best, or are they getting TOO involved?
Been with my s/o for 13 years. We have had a lot of ups and downs. She had a really rough upbringing which caused severe anxiety and depression. I tried splitting up but I could sense she was unraveling and we'd always end up back together. Eventually I felt so stuck/got so sick of it that I went to grad school out of state (wasn't the right move i know but I couldn't get through to her that it was taking a toll). Long distance sucked, and her depression turned into suicidal behavior. (Cont).
I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?

Worth it to pay the 550/year for the Amex corporate platinum once travel resumes? Looks like all the point multipliers are stripped compared to the normal platinum so my initial thought is it’s not worth it

I’m an Analytics Consultant looking for industry roles as a data analyst/BI Developer. I’ve had a few recruiters and job postings ask directly for a dashboard sample. I obviously can’t give them anything I’ve worked on because of client’s proprietary data and NDAs. Has anyone run into this problem before? Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?
Experienced SM at Deloitte, interviewing at Slalom this week. What is the equivalent level for a Deloitte SM at Slalom? Any thoughts on haggling position/salary...seems to “gap” with my skill set
