OP- ok now you took this to a whole different direction. My SM is ex- Deloitte and he is struggling at ACN. I think it really depends on many factors such as culture, work ethic, politics, network, etc etc

Not sure. At the Associate level job security is pretty damn high for the first 1.5-2 years.

BCG1, by job security im also referring to the level of effort that is required to stay employed. I imagine MBB projects are more demanding - so while someone might be considered a poor performer at MBB, they would be considered a top performer at Say Accenture or PWC and have more job security at Accenture/PWC.

For example, I was a high performer at Accenture so I had immense job security. at Deloitte, I'm an average performer now so I have less relative job security even though I'm working just as hard if not harder. Makes me regret leaving ACN

Completely depends on the project you're on.

EY2, may be you are not so connected in EY. There have been actual firings

Hello hello,

Had my induction today at my new company (asset manager). Really liked HR girl who led the meeting, chatted a bit after, loved her smile.
