How common is it for associate partners to lateral into MBB? Anybody willing to do a referral for a healthcare AP from Big 4 firm? What’s the interview process like?
Big 4 🐠 here. Love consulting work but tired of the lifestyle. Anyone heard about F212, Slalom and Bridgespan?
What other consulting firms have a prominent supply chain consulting practice besides MBB, the Big 4 accounting firms, and Kearney?

How is quality of life different of an MBB partner and a B4 partner. Is it really still a grind at MBB at that level? I have never seen a stressed MBB partner so not sure if it’s just a facade.
What are typical entry levels for consulting managers from the big 4 and EM/PL from MBB at Google? L5/L6 ?
I've been working for a regional public accounting firm since last Summer. It's a small office and I don't really fit in. The accounting software(s) is also ancient and slow here(circa 2003). I quickly applied for a position at a Big 4 and surprisingly was quickly offered a job. The training here has been haphazard and even managers barely know how to use the software. My main concern is the awkwardness from leaving after such a short time but the commute is an hour shorter to the big 4 firm.
Staff at big 4, never see my wife during the weekdays who is in bed asleep most nights I get home. I know she’s lonely and misses me, but supports me and doesn’t try to complain. We are growing ...
How realistic is the jump from Big 4 FDD to IB. Can you expect to jump to a MM/BB or would you be stuck with boutiques?
I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help
Question for MBB consultants: Is there a set path to transition from a big 4 advisory (cyber) position to an equivalent consulting role at the big 3? Or is such a transition not possible without an mba?
Hello Fishes I have recently completed my MBA program and I am looking out for a job in Finance profile and I am having 4 years of experience in Accounts Payable profile. Also are there any openings for finance and Accounts Payable in Big 4's or any of the good companies. Any sort of referral or help will be appreciated as I am already looking out for job from last year and not able to get any calls its really frustrating and demoralizing..😔😔
Anyone know if Deloitte will still give retention bonus if I join now for tax senior 1 from another big 4?
I am 23 YO, just graduated undergrad from a non-target school, and am currently working in tech consulting for a B4 firm. My long term goal is to land a technology operations job with a large PE fund. What steps should I be taking now to make this goal more feasible? What types of exposure should I be looking to gain? Also, I wouldn’t mind going back to b school if that’s what it will take to get in the door. Thanks in advance!
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
Have offers from both M&A finance consulting at Deloitte Consulting and finance transformation at EY (not ey parthenon). Comp and level is similar. Which to choose?
PMP worth it?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Does Accenture taking COVID proof isn't discriminating the folks who haven't taken vaccine for health or religious concern?
Any remote opportunities for Internal & External Communications with 7+ years of experience? Kindly DM me.
We have an AMAZING nanny - we adore her and she is so great with our child. We are just using her for 6 months while we wait for our daughter to get into a nursery program. We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?
Lesson learned: when in APAC do not ask your client to take you to their favorite restaurant. Wound up eating "turtle sex organ soup" and century eggs last night.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a product that helps with potential carpal tunnel? I realize we don’t always work in the most ergonomic environments and I need something to help, esp. w/ travel.
BCG as a consultant or a B2B product manager role with a non FANGG tech firm (think Adobe, HP, Cisco).
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

What do you do when a client makes a friend request to your fb page?? I hesitate confirming, unless they were friends prior to becoming clients. I keep a boundary.
I’m getting laid off tomorrow. For those that got laid off during the pandemic, how long did it take for you to find another role? I have 4 months of savings.
I have a client who only wants to use MS Teams to communicate to us. It is a nightmare for many reasons but not sure how to stop this.
Figured out a second use for my wfh setup 😂
OMNICOM HASN’T ANNOUNCED WFH YET - WHAT ON EARTH ARE THEY WAITING FOR? WHY DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND THE URGENT NECESSITY TO BE PROACTIVE HERE??
For all the dads out there: how are you not ashamed to be the father this career forces you to be? It's a daily struggle for me and I do not think it is worth it.
