Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?

Lol no I mean how do they know OP has an offer? Like I get possibly why (People at other firms talking), but that seems weird to me. Why would a competitor firm want to disclose the employee of the old firm is coming to theirs…never-mind if they even should be doing that regardless

You should already be at your desk working by now

Yea, there are some engagements that don’t even have seniors right now due to staffing shortages. I’m guessing it’s a similar situation at all the Big 4

I have just completed my first of 12 CIMA exams and I can’t seem to motivate myself to study at the expense of my side hustle when I don’t see myself in Consulting long term. I know I will gain some valuable lessons from CIMA for future ventures but it is a 3 year qualification alongside a demanding job with minimal downtime. Should I try and qualify or focus on saving money and my side hustles? Also, do I need to qualify to work as a consultant in Big 4 or can I opt not to sit exams?
