Real question is in what practice are you making 100K as a staff?

I will pick AI over big 4 any day. AI is new and growing and the future potential is just mind blowing. If your really love the big 4 don’t burn bridges and you could return in the future. To be honest the idea of making senior, making manager etc is just the gimmick to suck you in. When you get a great opportunity take it , these things are just titles made up by pyramid leadership.

MBB without a doubt. My sister is at M and although the traveling is tough and the work is challenging, having that on your resume is a game changer. You can leave from there after a few years and you’re on track for C suite pretty easily. A lot of people go to top 10 business schools but the hope that they could get a job like that. I say go for it. You can’t let guilt of leaving your coworkers you like hold you back from what you really want to do. I think they should be understanding when an opportunity like this came to you

Love my coworkers. No homo. Feel bad bouncing. Great mentors too. Big risk. And I’ve heard people say leaving Big4 right before a promo is bad but this job seems like it is a promo seniors it’s senior level. And it’s actual AI

True. Without going into too much detail, the AI is used by MBB in a marketing tech product they have developed - essentially takes the idea of recommender systems and puts them on steroids

EY2. tech consulting. Came in as an experienced hire though a few years ago.

If it is true AI, that seem to be a better option to me.

Stay

Thank you PwC4. KPMG1 what is your rationale?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B.

And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
