Honestly working at Big 4 has made me feel worthless. Seems like nothing I do is good enough. I graduated with honors from a large competitive public university. I came in with a positive attitude,I am a very talkative person who had many leadership roles in college, I always stay organize, and I put in the time and continue to look for ways to improve. But constantly feeling like I’m not “type A” enough or that I need to communicate more and prove my worth. Is it like this at other jobs too? :/
Curious what the current Employee Referral Bonuses look like in B4 firms? As a smaller firm, our people are being inundated by recruiters, but also staff/seniors from B4 firms looking to poach, I assume because there is significant financial incentive. How good are the referral bonuses at your firm?
Currently working in a Management Consulting role in Big 4 (not front office). Got an offer from Product Based company that is more of value consulting and business development role. and Its a new team catering to Partner ecosystem of the company. I am doing good in my current role.

How is the growth and exit opportunities for Finance and Shared Services Outsourcing advisory teams in Big 4?

Dear Big 4's
In EY...How much pay is expected for 8 yrs exp. BI lead role? Including variable..pls comment
Looks like B4 partners makes the most $$ in the long run, even tech/FAANG or industry level senior roles doesn’t pay more then $600-700k, except a few roles like ceo/IB/PE/other financial roles/startup rsu (of u r lucky). Came to the conclusion after reading all the posts in this and other bowls. May be MBB, but if u add pensions, I think B4 is better. Thoughts?

Hi, I’m travelling to Canada on PR status by July 2022. I currently work for one of the Big 4 consultancies (been here since five years). I would like to understand how much weight that would carry when searching for a job in Canada. Would it even matter? Also, can you suggest if it’s a good idea to approach job consultancies? If yes, any recommendations? PwC EY Deloitte KPMG

- Where does the majority of their client base sit?
- is travel frequent?
What are other MBB tech alternatives to B4?

Hello fishes just want to know does anybody uses AMD processors and if yes how is your experience in terms of programming, do anyone face any challenges while using an AmD for coding? On a software abstraction level they should be same but there are various problems in the past with AMD not able to run android studio and not supporting NUMPy, there are workaround but If I am thinking of buying a gaming+coding lapto Intel ones are quite expensive.

Me and my husband are both associates and are busy (like everyone else). No kids and have our house cleaned every Friday, order all our groceries via delivery, but I’m looking to outsource more. I wish I had an “assistant” one day a week to do miscellaneous tasks like take things to the post office, go get the car washed, run random errands, put laundry away… has anyone found a good solution for this? If so what are you paying?

Anybody have to pay back a signing bonus? My bonus at EY doesn't "vest" for two years, but I'm wondering if they'll actually pull it back if I leave at about 18 months, or will they just let it go?
My name is short and spelled out in my email, yet people repeatedly misspell it when responding to my emails. How can you misspell it when it’s literally spelled out for you in both my email and signature.
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.

Last weekend I brought 2k to Vegas for a getaway with friends and ended up finding a magic machine that paid me $1500 every hour. I ended up with 15 hand pays all at or above $1500. Like a true drunken Vegas partier, I kept putting my winners back in, paying for my friends games, dinner, drinks, shows.... I was showing off. Ended up coming home with 6k. Still happy. But not the 21k my tax records show I won. What do I need to worry about come tax time?
Which firms pay out bonuses and what is the typical amount? Any of the mid-size pay bonuses like the big 4?
I’m up for early promotion, and I’m curious about the raise %. By getting promoted early I’ll be missing out on one year of 5-8% at my current position compared to most of my peers in the new one. Do early promo raises ever account for this or are they the usual annual + promotion %? If they don’t account for it I feel like it leaves me under compensated compared to my peers. Even with one less year of experience I would still be doing the same job and expect the same compensation.

I don’t understand how these even exist currently. 4 competing firms means that 1 firm does the audit, 1 firm does design consulting, 1 firm does implementation consulting, 1 firm is left to give competitive bids for any of the 3 other services.
I think it’s a stretch to say they do the work that the big 4 can’t do for independence issues. I can understand why 1 firm won’t be able to do to independence but why wouldn’t the other 3 be able to? Seems like a marketing ploy to be honest. If you want to go to reputable consulting shops vault gives you a good idea.
There are many niche firms that do similar work to advisory big 4 work. Many reputable and sustainable. If anything government bodies are increasing independence restrictions worldwide. UK as an example. I began my career at Alvarez and Marsal and can say the lack of independence barriers were a huge plus
