Getting ready to start in IT Audit at B4 in Midwest. (Took the job for experience and $$) I’ve been looking into areas that really interest me like M&A and consulting. Already started studying for CPA and plan to get an MBA within the first three years to help me stand out against the applicant pool. Any advice on how to change trajectory in the meantime or would the cert and education be required/sufficient to get me into those roles?
Got an offer from a big 4. Senior, M&A tax, 4YOE, CPA. 95k & 5k bonus. Atlanta, LCOL (supposedly 🙄). Is this a fair offer? I feel like this is low but don’t know how high to go. How much should I be asking for? TIA
Just saw a peer, who didn't really do any great work (average / middling at best, careless with lack of attention to detail at worst) when we were on the same team, from my Big 4 firm exit to Apple. Happy for him but just a reminder that getting into good companies is just about how well you can bs.
My GF just ended her big 4 internship and has a full time offer to start in about 6 months. Realistically doesn’t make sense for her to get a random part time job in between, especially with COVID. Thoughts on whether she should try and claim unemployment benefits during that time? Would she even be approved? Is it “unethical” since she has future employment lined up? NY for reference.
Has anyone FIREed after working for a few years as an SM at Big 4? What did you do after quitting? Coast fire and work an easy job? Passive income? How much did you have banked ?
I want to be my own boss instead of working at a B4 under tight deadlines and crappy teams. Can anyone point me to where I can find cyber security gigs where I can be an independent contractor? Appreciate any leads.

Thinking of switching to different B4 Firm, any suggestions on which one to steer clear of?
Hello! I would love to hear thoughts on culture at different consulting firms, particularly big-4. As you can see, I am at EY but interested in understanding more about what is the culture like at the other firms. I am at Partner level, just to give some context. Thank you in advance!
Were you able to switch from mid tier audit to b4 FDD? How hard is it with no previous FDD experience?
I know they will ask you to leave that day if you are going to another Big 4. What about when going to a small firm?
How realistic is it to transfer from business tax at Big-4 to accounting advisory at CFGI. A few of my friends have gotten InMails from them, so I was curious. Thank you all!
Currently at B4 and most of my work has been on the international side. Doing a masters of tax law (LLM opened up to non-JD candidates) and find that I’m really interested in what transaction tax / National folks do with memo writing & legal analysis/planning. I know PwC has a group in the international space that focuses solely on planning. Anyone know if that’s limited to lawyers?
What is going on in B4 audit? Feel like every other post here is about PIPs and layoffs.
Where is a new build???

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

After several years in consulting I completely lost all hobbies - found my life has been pretty much working + catching on sleep + trying to spend time with my spouse and child. I am in a good place financially; don’t love the job that much but also don’t hate it except being busy. I also have no idea what else I should do if I change job. Sometimes I think I am too pathetic- but most of the time I don’t even have time to think about it. Anyone else like this? Anyone has any suggestions?
