M&A analytics at B4 or A&M. Associate level
Looking to switch to EY cyber as a senior consultant. How many months of big 4 cyber experience post Masters is encouraged/required for the role?
Is there any B4 firm(except KPMG) that hire experienced associate in FDD? I am looking around the web and most seems to be looking for only seniors. (PwC does but practically Senior cuz they require 2 years of experience)
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
Canada (Ontario) salaries in Big 4 for experienced consulting or advisory senior managers or directors. Any insight on base and bonuses?
My husband and I were watching the LuLaRich documentary and he pointed out the the big 4 firms are very similar to MLM pyramid schemes. 😆🤔🧐
Facebook vs Google - What are some of the biggest work culture differences btwn the two? Particularly for someone coming from big 4 into tech.
Had a dream last night that every partner at the Big 4 had their name added to their firm’s name. It was miserable providing a list of hundreds of names every time someone asked where I worked...
Which Partner should you give your notice to at B4? Do you start with the highest, like region sub service line leader or just the highest you have a good relationship with, like a local or area partner? Not sure if any Partners would be offended that you didn’t tell them “first” even if you talked to them in the same day or so.
How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
Anyone work for a company that went public? What was you’re experience like and how does it compare to B4 in terms of hours, learning, etc.? Did you feel like it opened up opportunities after the fact?
Can staff or seniors refer interns in big 4, or are interns only really hired through campus recruiting?
So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?
How many years does one have to spend at a B4 in order for it to really stand out on the resume?
Any idea if large regional firm would let me go same day if giving notice that I am moving to a small firm? Or will they have me work the two weeks? They have let others go same day, but they were going to big 4.

I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Friend received bonus from google which is 50% of her salary. Seriously consider switching job now
I went to my boss at work and said, "I need a raise. Three other companies are after me." He said, "Really? Which other companies are after you?" I said, "The electric, water and gas companies"
I was in a meeting with my boss and account team discussing an overage on a project. We were looking at everyone’s hours, and our UX lead (a woman) had doubled her effort. The work was necessary...
Looking for feedback on KPMG? Culture, work-life balance, projects, salaries, progression etc
Does it make sense to do a mega backdoor into a Roth IRA if I already maxed out my $6k into Roth IRA AND my firm offers Roth 401k option? Thanks!
“What’s your process,” I had never really thought about how to articulate that … but I believe not having a good answer on an interview lost me a good job. Now I’ve heard that some copywriters have branded decks or Google slides to represent their process. Thoughts?
Worth using a recruiter? Pros and cons? I'm trying to switch from being a general litigator to a specialize a bit. Curious if it would be beneficial to use a recruiter in this situation since they'll need to sell me a bit. Or is it just cost prohibitive at this point and I'd have a better chance applying on my own.
Have anyone taken flight lessons before?
Thinking about transferring from EY US to EY London. I'm a staff 1 and unfortunately didn't win the visa lottery. Any thoughts of how hard it is to transfer?
Is anyone willing to share their hr budget per employee (excluding insurance/Heath benefits).
Trying to maximize United PQP. Traveling from India to US ON Air Canada ticketed Lufthansa operated business class P. Am i signing up for maximization or i read somewhere that Lufthansa business class P gives no miles at all. HELP. Do you have better recommendations?
New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!
First year big 4 MD here with a question... ...if you beat your metrics by say double or triple or more, is it true that bonus hits a diminishing return and incremental sales or managed revenue don’t really impact VC?
Maybe a long shot, but anyone know of any Epic projects or customers hiring now/soon? My client ran out of money and isn’t renewing any consultants.
