Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc. Should I consider moving to capgemini considering WLB. Will big 4 release me as I am still being onboarded. Also If they ask me to serve notice, will capgemini wait for me during notice period at big 4. Please help guys.
How many years does one have to spend at a B4 in order for it to really stand out on the resume?
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
Why do many tax lawyers end up going to Big 4 firms and act like a know-it-all - when they are actually law firm rejects??
Which Partner should you give your notice to at B4? Do you start with the highest, like region sub service line leader or just the highest you have a good relationship with, like a local or area partner? Not sure if any Partners would be offended that you didn’t tell them “first” even if you talked to them in the same day or so.
Congrats to all the folks who got promoted this year! Happy for everyone but still feeling a little blue.. was really hoping to make it to the next level this year. Looking for some advice.. do I slog it out for one more year in current big 4 or do I try to jump to another firm at the next level?
Anyone have familiarity with big 4 strategy exits to to firms like Verily life sciences?
What are the role titles I should be searching for in industry that have equivalent or greater pay than consulting roles? I need something low key or slower paced than the Big 4 that focuses on strategic communications or learning development.
What kind of pay can I expect if I switch B4 tax tech to regional or national regular tax after 1 year with CPA? My team does dead end work and I don't see exit opps in my future if I stay. Midwest.
Just left Big 4 consulting for sales strategy at a Tier 2 tech co (LinkedIn, Salesforce, etc.). Bain reached out today, any good reason to entertain?
I am planning to do masters in cybersecurity . I migrated from India where I did my under grad. 35 M working as M at Big 4 with 12 YOE and making 170k. I feel doing a masters from US will add to my knowledge and some brand value to my education space in my resume . Any good school recommendations for online masters ? Was thinking between CMU , Berkeley , Georgie tech . Would prefer something that doesn’t need GMAT, less than 100k total tution and good brand name . Thank you. !!!

For big 4 M and above. Reached out to independence compliance desk about reporting cryptos exchange accounts and here is exact language for response: "as of now bjtcoins or other cryptocurrencies are not reportable l. Bitcoin wallets will be reportable in the future but that is also not in effect yet. We have not received information on when these changes will be taking place. For the short term, you do not need to worry about reporting them."
Anyone here who suffers from ADD/ADHD? My Vyvanse wears off around 4:00, I take Adderall to supplement but my psychiatrist is reluctant to give me more Adderall to power through the day/night; he just doesn’t get B4 busy season. Any advice?

Has anyone had Marriott gift you the next level of status if you’re only a few nights short of the requirement at end of year?
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?

How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
