Uber driver yesterday: Of thr big 4, you must be PwC, they always have great personalities. All the Deloitte folks I get are uptight and douchey. (his words, not mine.)
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
Wanted to get thoughts on if there was a service line in the Big 4 world that has a work/life balance that doesn't exceed 45 hours of work per week? Or is that blasphemy?
Keeping the big 4 in mind, what role/level would you have to reach before you qualify for a eb1c L1 visa with a good chance of approval?
🧐Up for debate: who gets the largest pile of scraps of PE/VC due diligence (or pure strat) work after MBB: OW, LEK, ATK, S&, EY-P, or Deloitte? What order would you put?
Does anyone do IT audit work at Protiviti? Is the work life balance actually better than B4?
Have 1.5 YOE at a boutique and hoping to make a lateral to a MBB consumer/retail group if possible. Anyone have suggestions on where to start?
Many people are willing to take a down level from T2/big4 to MBB but would you be willing to do it for FAANG?
Staying at an established middle market firm where realistic partner track is about 10 -12 years vs moving to big4 or MBB. Pros & cons of both?
Hi, I’m a Manager at a Big 4 firm. Do a lot of change management, talent strategies work. Am looking to go into MBB for a smaller firm feel. Can anyone be so kind to help me with a referral? Thank you
I accepted an offer for a T2 firm but haven't started yet (background check in progress) and just received an offer at an MBB. Should I take the MBB and renege on the T2? Any advice on how to word this to the T2? Should I renege after I sign with MBB? Are there any repercussions I should be aware of? Thanks for the help!
What’s Ross’s stereotype? Is it possible to get into MBB or FAANG post graduation? What is the student body like? Is it reputable?
Is there really much difference between any of the big 4 or even top 10 or so firms? Been at PwC for 3.5 years and considering moving on, no idea what but is there any point transferring Cross firms?
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Deloitte is giving mid-year hikes. Is this also happening at other consulting firms, big 4? EY PWC KPMG Accenture
In a Big4 deal Analytics group that’s not premier with no path to partner... should I try to move to MBB/T2 to gain traditional consulting experience or try for tech/FAANG... I just wanna make money
I'm getting a good amount of phone screens (guessing big 4 + CPA is getting me past the resume screen), but after that I'm honestly stuck. How do I frame risk assurance in a way that makes me valuable for financial analysis type roles? I have no experience with financial modeling, for example. I feel like I can BS about how I understand business processes, but then when it comes to technical knowledge I lean on "I'm a CPA" since the work experience sucks. Controls work is not very transferable.
How soon do transitions happen (involuntarily) at MBBs? I recently joined and am always worried that I’ll be let go. What are the conversations/processes like? [Asking for MBB because I’m also curious about the differences if any between the firms]

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!

Question for EY moms - my husband and I are thinking about starting a family soon, so I was looking up the parental leave policy to see what my options are. I know some firms have clawback clauses that require you to come back to work for a specific period of time or else you have to pay back the salary you received while on leave, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the EY policy. Does this mean EY doesn’t have a clawback clause for parental leave, or is it just hidden away somewhere? TIA!
I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help
