Is it routine to get a level up by switching to another Big 4? Saw 3 posts from colleagues today. All went to PwC with at least one level up. I had heard otherwise from a recruiter.

Given that Deloitte Analyst = PWC Partner, there really isn’t anywhere to go but up when making the switch.

Consultant to manager is a big jump if they weren’t already a senior. Did they lie about their roles?

Our levels are A-SA-M-SM-D-P.

So, it’s a lateral.

Yeah its quite common to go a level up, but for that you have to had spent atleast 2 years at a particular level. In 1 year at a level, its very very tough to get a level jump.

Curious as well. Considering this but not sure if it’s true.

We almost always bring ppl in a level lower or what would be seen as lateral from title alone, eg manager to manger but technically they are coming in as a first year manager even though they are more experienced than that

Honestly working at Big 4 has made me feel worthless. Seems like nothing I do is good enough. I graduated with honors from a large competitive public university. I came in with a positive attitude,I am a very talkative person who had many leadership roles in college, I always stay organize, and I put in the time and continue to look for ways to improve. But constantly feeling like I’m not “type A” enough or that I need to communicate more and prove my worth. Is it like this at other jobs too? :/

Tomorrow I plan on apologizing to the student. But do I say something to the admin for yelling at me in front of a coworker? Or let it go.
