Been here several years. Only just clicked to me how predatory Big 4 are. Business model is to use cheap, underpaid labor from college grads who can't go elsewhere or pay debts. Churn em and burn em.
How much does big 4 pay for risk / internal audit for an experienced senior in NYC? Would 90k be on the lower end?
Hi All, I need some suggestions. I am currently working in a Big 4 post my MBA from tier 2 IIM college as consultant but the work is pure PMO work which I am doing right now. I am completely confused about my career track and have no idea whether the PMO work will help me or not in long run. Not sure about the exit opportunities from this role? And what if I keep doing this pmo work, where will I land up? I wish to transit into a product manager or may be program manager role.
How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
If I have an offer from a competing B4 dated 6months ahead, do I need to notify when I accept/sign or that 6months later?
Are all IT Audit ( Big 4?Risk assurance, PwC DAT, PwC Tech Risk) have a year long busy season? I am curious as to my firm busy season is now really “busier season” because we have been legit busy all year
Anyone here have experience boomeranging back to their original b4 firm within a year of leaving for a diff b4? Does this look bad on a resume?
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
Anyone at b4 merge your phone number to the company issued cell phone? Do they get to keep your number if you leave? I’ve had the same phone number my entire life and don’t want to lose it…not that I ever plan on leaving.
Went to a top uni but got average grades - was perhaps overly committed to volunteering plus military reserve service inc 2 deployments. Looking at moving from big 4 strategy & transformation consulting to a T2/ MBB with 2 YOE. How much will they care about grades? It’s the major thing putting me off.

Hi folks, I am a java lead with 9 years of experience skilled in Spring boot, microservices along with cloud exposure. I am not certified in any cloud platform though. Currently my ctc is 18.70. Targetting a big 4 with ctc of 30 lpa. Please do share your thoughts if my skill set is really worth it to ask for around 30 lpa. Is pwc, deloitte, kpmg going to entertain such expectations.?
Is acquiring a Tax LLM pointless if you already have a JD and working in Big 4 Tax already?
Slalom manager pay ? With and without MBA? Are the long term pay scales just bad compare to big 4? I don't get why more people don't switch
Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!
I received an offer from Big 4 for an SC3 role. The offer states that I will be eligible for a salary adjustment in Oct 2022. What does this mean? Is that when annual raises occur, or will they review my performance and determine if I should be promoted to manager? I have enough YOE for a manager, but the team recommends that I come in as SC3 to learn how things are done since I have no prior consulting experience.
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!

I'm actually the client. Need to hire a consultancy for a project (5ppl). Proposals were horrible. KPMG didn't have the staffing. PWC we cannot take since they are the auditor (somehow we didn't ask EY). Now I am stuck with Deloitte or a boutique. Thoughts? Senior management cannot decide. My team cannot decide. This has been going on for months. Thoughts?
LEK vs Parthenon? Heard both are sweatshops. Would love to hear real life data points. Thank you in advance!

I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English. I am working on trying to work my current skills into today's job market. That is more difficult than I anticipated. I guess I'm wondering if there really is anything out there to switch to? I feel lucky to have a job, but it is getting very depressing and difficult to get up for work.
Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
Just sitting here thinking.. Dang, I got a 3% annual raise. I feel worthless to my firm. I should leave.
