Currently a PhD at a M7. Veteran, and obviously used to be at EY. Currently in qualifying phase and starting to looking to post-PhD life. How do the firms differ in how they treat advanced degrees (ie stick to PhD area or are you a generalist)? How do federal vs commercial practices differ when recruiting advanced degrees? I recognize that there might be a pay differential (pay isn’t important, I don’t want to go back to B4 due to tax/consulting dichotomy), just would be great to be federal.
My fish fellow, any tips regarding to salary negotiation? What is the percentage raise of being prompted to a senior in another big 4? Thanks y'all

Where the hell do we apply after 3 years as tech consultants at a big 4? I feel overqualified for a senior analyst position in the industry, but often times under-qualified for the manager level.
If you plan to accept an offer with another B4 - what's the best way to break the news? Do you just tell HR first or should you tell your teams? Don't want to screw over any teams. Any advice helpful!
Is there anyone from one of the big 4 that works with technology clients. That free to answer questions?

Would it look bad if I extend my start date at a big 4 by three weeks because I need to have a surgery?
Need advice on the transition to FDD one day. Will be promoted to senior in 2 weeks (in risk advisory and have CPA). I already feel a huge disadvantage trying to go Risk > FDD (as opposed to typical Audit > FDD). Should I stick it out in risk until deals start hiring again? I think there's some value in being a Big 4 CPA compared to an industry senior analyst. But the work in risk doesn't help me develop towards FDD at all... transfer got delayed 3 times until covid, so I'm down to switch firms
Is it worth it to jump between big 4 firms to try and promote early/get higher pay or will big 4 firms try to punish you for this?
Is an MBA worth it? I’m in track for an IT Audit Manager position in the next couple years, have Big 4 experience, and am satisfied with the idea of staying in audit for the foreseeable future (but open to other risk relate roles). Is an MBA going to do anything for me as I look to move up in the audit world in the future? Or should I just focus on doing quality work and not waste my time with an MBA?
Has anyone else noticed that Google is the only FAANG company that seems to have employees on here? Are the rest of you all just hiding, or is W/L a myth at FAAN?
I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities.

The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?

Mid level AD in NY. Just started freelancing. I'd like to make about $70/hour. Do I ask for $80? If they ask my day rate, does that calculate to $700/day? Does day rate = 8 hours? Or could it be 12?
