I interviewed for an internal role. Opted to stay where I am because I like “client facing”. Similar background. Look up veterans from the firm on LinkedIn and reach out that way.

My friend has worked in a big 4 firm in India in a mid-senior role. He is now in Canada and has been working in an industry role. He wants to get back to consulting. Apparently big4’s view Indian...


See posts on here and on Reddit about people with horrible WLB. All my other friends in B4 are drowning in work. 6 months in... nothing too bad and everyone’s super respectful of my time. Am I in for a rude awakening at some point lol?


The only bad thing about leaving B4 is that now that I'm in corp fin,I keep finding holes and inventing controls to fix them...so I will soon be that client contact with too many fucking controls.


I've been following posts on people's reactions to India and Indians on this blog. I'm of Indian descent and raised in the West. Do I have a risk of being stereotyped as "Indian" if I try to join B4?


Is there a place I can go to get my tsa pre check number? I left another big 4 for Deloitte and was immediately dismissed and didn’t have time to gather that info


Big 4 don’t care about your dreams and hopes :)


Wow PwC, sure you know where to share your expertise on the riots. Even during channel surfing, can't escape B4 influence.

When did it hit you that working in the Big 4 is a dirty political game? That everyone smiles in your face but they would all put a knife in your back at any given moment if expedient for them?


Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.


White supremacy is real in these firms, especially big 4 accounting.


Senior 3 /Manager 1- big 4(Tech consulting/ Cyber) in Toronto: any thoughts on the average compensation?

I thought that too of some of the middle eastern and Caribbean island managers I worked with on a job once, but they turned out to be the most supportive and inquisitive. But I feel ya, sometimes you can sense if they'll be hostile toward you. But I don't give af at this point. In the end, they're still professionals working for Big 4 and probably won't dare say anything to you about it, even if it does bother them. Way I see it, ignorant people like that don't go very far working in our industry.

Accepted an in-house job. Applying, interviewing, and getting the offer was an emotional rollercoaster. I was *so* excited each time I got called back for another round until I got the offer. Now that it's official, I'm wracked with anxiety. Am I pigeonholing myself? Am I leaving something better behind in PP (was partner track 6YOE at a boutique firm with a toxic boss 3 years from retirement)? Will I hate the commute? Will I get bored? Anyone else feel this way before they took the plunge?

I need some advice here. I recently got to know that my husband cheated on me while we were dating. It was with a messed up friend. It was a new city, they did not know anyone else, and for the sake of wanting to keep the friendship, did not put a full stop to it until after our engagement. That female is no longer in our lives, no contact. What should I do? 1. Look forward and move past it. 2. Leave. Timeline: Dating since 2017. Cheating : Apr18-dec18. Engaged Jan 2019. Married 2020.

Hi! I'm trying to get a sense of what some of the boutique life science firms are like, specifically in NYC or area. I have a life science PhD, and 3 years industry experience, but I'd like to get more exposure to the "business side." I'm currently in program management and I'd like to learn skills to land me in commercial or business development/strategic alliances. Would a move to a life science boutique firm be the best route for this?
