Jumping around big 4 for promotions, worth it?

It’s either that or stay at 1 with the intent of pushing for Partner. Staying with a single firm will almost guarantee you’ll remain at the lower end of the salary bands as you move up in level. Switching firms can give you that one time jump in salary you couldn’t get otherwise.

Thanks for framing the thinking - generally came into consulting to get the career capital and exit at M. So less concerned about pay but a good angle to consider

You can also jump levels jumping firms. Plus boomerang back if you need to. Firms are also becoming more open to hiring partners since typical paper-pusher types who tend to remain in a single firm can't innovate/find new avenues.

Good shout, been reading Range during lockdown and this was essentially one of the thesis points

Go for it! In addition to better pay and promotion, you get the opportunity to feel the culture of the firm and decide which firm makes you more happy.

You will also be an alumni of both now, which can be in the future extremely valuable! Eg talking to the CFO of xyz corp „yes, I‘ve been at [big4] too“ Just make sure you don’t burn bridges when you leave your current employer.

I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?
