The grass is not greener. Expect to find yourself alone at Deloitte, selling yourself to home grown “punks” to gain access to clients and to pursuits. If someone is pulling you into Deloitte and that person is in real leadership role - go, otherwise it’s a nightmare!! There is a statistic my career counselor shared: 90 percent of direct admit partners leave Deloitte within 3 years. And I have seen this happen not only with partners but also with SMs, as the struggle is real. Having said all that, if you come as part of a “pack”, like some Accenture MDs did a few years back, you may be ok. My personal experience has been 👎🏼👎🏼

Is that a downgrade or Principal at Big4 is equivalent to MD in Accenture? I’m asking that, because Principal in McKinsey, BCG and Bain is equivalent to Senior Manager in Accenture.

No. Principal at Big 4 = equity partner. It’s the highest title. The nomenclature is confusing but definitely not a downgrade

Principal is a non-CPA partner. I just went through this process. If there are specific questions feel free to ask (already reached out to OP).

So basically, Accounting = Partner ; Consulting = Principal

Good to know, P1.

eBook or Online course? Hi all - curious as to what you’re preferred medium for learning and prepping about case interviewing. I’m a former EM at MBB and had coached and interviewed hundreds of folks (still do today). I know there’s a lot of material out there already but let’s assume I can add value and have a solid approach/methodology - would you prefer an an ebook or online course? Also what would you pay for each? (If anything at all lol)

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
