Currently in B4 tax specializing in financial services. Looking for a tax manager position in pre IPO in Seattle area. My financial services background + no industry experience thus far have been a major issue getting through the resume cut. Does anyone have any tips, connections and/or anything to share on how I can make that jump?
Congrats to all the folks who got promoted this year! Happy for everyone but still feeling a little blue.. was really hoping to make it to the next level this year. Looking for some advice.. do I slog it out for one more year in current big 4 or do I try to jump to another firm at the next level?
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
I’m a first year senior reporting to a partner that is very hands off. I’m not learning too much. Should I switch to big 4?
Just left Big 4 consulting for sales strategy at a Tier 2 tech co (LinkedIn, Salesforce, etc.). Bain reached out today, any good reason to entertain?
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. 😆🤔🧐
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.
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)
I’m interviewing a senior tax associate position at BDO, 2 years prior big 4 experience. What salary should I be expecting? LCOL like 80~85 index.
Has anyone had an experience where they switched big 4 and ended up being such a good decision? Trying to get some light

A friend of mine from the Big 4 is leaving to go for his PhD this fall. I actually have considered doing that myself at some point. How much demand is out there for professors in the next 5-10 years?
I’m a senior in advisory at a B4 firm. I’m aiming for partner, but secretly would like to be part of firm leadership. Is there anything I should do differently on my way up the ladder?
Moved to D F&EP as a C at 125 last Jan from another B4. Accenture Strategy CFO&EV is offering me 130 as a C2. Worth the move? Pros: work and comp / title progression Cons: starting from scratch

Why healthcare agencies only serve big pharmaceutical clients with inyectable or pill products and don’t work with “consumer healthcare” brands like Advil, Tylenol, Aquafresh, Pepito-Bismo, etc?
I really need advice please. I’m a newly promoted S1 in Tax & I’m extremely conflicted. I really wouldn’t mind staying till manager. While I work extremely long hours, I find the work interesting & I enjoy working with my team. I don’t plan on having kids for a while so I really just want to do the best to put myself in a position where I will be the most successful in the long term. People who left at manager, do you think it helped or hindered you by staying that long?

Any thoughts on very small private boutique consulting firms? Does this ruin my chances of a career opportunities afterwards? I’m interviewing with a company with 30 employees and I am worried I am digging myself a grave.
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!
Did anyone have a good outcome by accepting a counter offer from their current company and staying?

Has anyone successfully taken unpaid leave after short term disability? I think my doctor’s willingness to continue filling out my paperwork for STD is reaching an end but I’m having panic attacks even thinking about returning to work so I’d like to take more time off. I’m willing to take unpaid leave but not sure if broaching this with HR will just cause my company to fire me
Has anyone gotten a Scrummaster certification? Surprisingly difficult to find info on the process online. What is involved/required?

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
