I currently work in a mid-size firm (top 20). Is it possible to go from a mid size firm to a big 4 firm? I know there is a lot of movement from big 4 to mid size/regional but don't hear a lot about
If a big-4 sized player entered the game without a partnership structure where attrition wasn’t a part of the strategy, would they be more competitive and profitable? Attrition is quite literally what makes promotions viable year after year but also it creates instability in the firm to an extent, it seems.

Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division. They report directly to the c-suite and said they mainly focus on strategy or M&A and don’t do implementation. The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!
I love working in the big 4. Forget the hours and focus on the amazing opportunity. I wasn't born in anything close to middle class. I will never take this opportunity for granted.
Debating between a role in transaction advisory at Big 4 vs back office accounting at a well known PE firm. Audit is not for me (not the hours or firm but work) so worried about the BO role - I have always wanted to work on deals but worried about the exit ops. Any advice is greatly appreciated, don’t have many friends in the industry and feel like the advice I have gotten has been extremely bias

I went back to my old job when I lost my job. This was probably more an emotional decision. My old manager and team welcomed me back with open arms. I’ve only been back for a couple of weeks but I’ve realized that I want to pivot into analytics and my current role has limitations in this area. Am I horrible for wanting to leave even though they asked me that I was planning to stick around for more than a few months. Any advice appreciated!
So, Agoda. What’s up with this recruiting process? No info on comp, just constant bragging about how they have members from FAANG from around the world joining, and that should be enough to convince you to consider relocating to Bangkok and undergo 5 - 6 rounds of interviews, a 30 minute assessment and a 2 day case study?
I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)

Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
