Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
What other consulting firms have a prominent supply chain consulting practice besides MBB, the Big 4 accounting firms, and Kearney?
Lots of “deloitte days” and extra days off this year. Do other big 4 do this? It’s been nice to get extra vacation

Currently a Director at another Big 4 (best guess c.3 yrs from partner) and have been asked to join Deloitte as a Parter. Anything I should be aware of? It would likely be a Salaried Partner offer, what is the normal rate of progression to equity partner?
How hard is it to go from big 4 to MBB?
How difficult will it be to switch to the commercial consulting practice of another Big 4 firm coming from Deloitte’s Federal consulting practice?
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?

Don’t mean to sound stupid but would I be able to hold ETFs if I work at Deloitte (or any Big 4)? ETFs hold a lot of different companies/stocks so would there be a compliance/independence issue?
Does turning down a Big 4 job offer, due to bad timing, hinder chances if I reapply there in a few years?
Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
I moved from B4 to industry accounting about 5 years ago. I currently work as a corporate accounting manager at a software company. I recently hired an big 4 audit senior right out of public and I’m struggling to get him up to speed. Does anyone have an example of reasonable vs unreasonable expectations for a senior accountant moving to industry after 2-3 years at B4 audit?

Hey fellow moms, curious to know about any exceptionally good or bad policies from companies to help parents navigate covid, parenting and work.
