Was recently approached by A&M and Alix for consulting roles. Any perspective on their reputation? Currently in S&O consulting role at Big 4.
Important question about switching to another B4. What happens to all your previous comments and posts? Do they stay the old firm or change to the new firms name?
Big 4 vs top 10. For core tax, how different is the work? Are there certain things you probably won't run see unless you are B4? How bad is the pigeon-holing, what level does it typically occur at?
Has anyone been denied by another b4’s TAS/FDD service group but been able to apply for the same role at another/same office? And if so, how soon after?
Thoughts or insights on feasible Acct/Finance/consulting positions ranked by highest compensation post Big 4 Sr. Audit Associate?
Does BAH pay better than big 4?
Does KPMG have a student loan repayment program? How does it work? How does it compare to other big 4 firms?

Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
What other big 4 call these advisory/consulting service lines: consumer finance, finance effectiveness, credit risk advisory and strategy consulting? Trying to transfer to one of those service lines.
Partners, how do you perceive lateral hires from competing B4/ACN? Is there a perception of them not being good enough (out instead of up) or viewed as mercenaries with no investment in relationships?
You guys after a point feel like the prestige and pride of big 4 fades away? Ure basically left with some fancy English words and a below average pay

I recently got a verbal from B4 firm but have yet to receive the written (going on 2 weeks now). I have recently received another verbal offer from a different B4 firm. How should I negotiate with the original firm for more $? What would you say? This is my first time switching jobs so fairly new.
Best time to move from Audit into B4 FDD? Recently started as an A1 but looking to make the move within a year or so hopefully
Best and worst of the Big 4? Serious inquiry, not here to make fun of KPMG or hype one up... And please provide why TIA :)
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.

Anyone else still working from home half the time because the firm has a hybrid in-office/WFH policy? I love my days at home and I get the exact same amount of hours billed either way.
I thought I was ok with no raise and bonus due to Covid-19 but after two months of around the clock work, internal and client facing, I want my checks.
South Asian ladies - how do you handle the marriage conversations with your parents? Every time I visit my parents, this is all they talk about. It got to a point where I stopped coming home. I know avoiding them isn’t the healthiest way to handle it. For context, I’m 34 and been living on my own since college. I’m born and raised in the US, and don’t find guys in my culture attractive. My parents aren’t being open minded of inter-racial dating / marriage. I’m starting to feel hopeless 😞

MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
Hi all, I am in discussion with TCS for salary negotiation. They are offering less CTC than the offer in hand. They are waiting for my confirmation to release the offer. Now, I am thinking to ask them to provide me onsite assurance(not now but at least in 6-12months), so as to compensate for the ctc difference. I know that account has onsite opportunities at my band. Is it a wise thing to ask the manager to give me onsite assurance in written so as to compensate for the CTC ?
