Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol
MBB folks - When you're working with a Big 4 team on the same project, what is your perception and expectation?
Hello, I am a partner at one of the boutique retail (fashion&lifestyle) consulting organization and looking at growth opportunities in my career..Based on industry rankings on Retail, Strategy, Mgmt consulting; MBB's are the top cream followed by the BIG 4 along with Accenture + niche strategy consulting like Alix Partners .....I'd love to chat with partners in retail practice in any of the orgs if possible to get some guidance & direction...looking fwd to it
Woke up from an epic dream that I didn't get to finish... Game of Thrones characters were scattered throughout the MBB, Big 4, etc., and we were all trying to get the Iron Throne account... sigh...
What is the a first year Consultant (Accenture lvl 9, 2 years post UG) equivalent in all the B4? For us we go Analyst (1 yr) to Senior Analyst (1yr) then Consultant.
MBA job question: if I’m coming in with 5+ years of big 4 consulting experience, would I be able to leverage that for higher pay / level at another consulting shop upon graduation?
40% pay bump to leave B4 for a small boutique (<25 people). Work is very similar but the company is virtually unheard of. Would you do it?
Just started job at big 4 after having been at boutique for one year, but just received email from MBB asking to schedule 1st round interview. Going to take the interview with MBB - any advice (cont)
How hard is it to get fired from a big 4? Asking bc I heard some people were “pressured” into quitting...
Considering switching out of accounting to more of an analyst role. Not sure if I should stay a little longer at big 4 or move into a industry position now. Staff 2 soon to be senior. Thoughts?
Would it look bad if I extend my start date at a big 4 by three weeks because I need to have a surgery?
I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?
People that have been furloughed or laid off, have you been able to successfully apply for unemployment or is there a backlog?
If I know my manager (of two months) plans to recommend against my promotion, should I still have them talk to my counselor?
Ambassador Elite Status - worth it? I had it years ago but never really used it. And how/when does the intro happen?
I’m interviewing at an agency I really want to work at in 2 weeks. We have been talking for a few months and now they are flying me there to meet everyone. This will be my first interview after 4
Currently at Big 4 management consulting post-MBA. Have offers with MBB and FAANG (strategy). Similar comp. Which would you take?
How do you show travel insurance proof for schengen visa for tourism ? Is it the credit card coverage or the Deloitte health coverage? Do you guys get a new travel insurance ?
Anyone working in big 4 consulting firm got their GC filed under EB1 - if yes which position where they in when the GC processing started ?
I’m feeling very sad. I just learned that the partner in my previous firm got fired. I considered him my mentor. He took me under his wing. He was my Don Draper and I was his Peggy Olson. I’m really bummed about this, heartbroken and worried. Nobody knows why. The ex-colleague said everything was normal, they sent him emails but bounced back. Nobody saw it coming. 😢
