Anybody ever move from Big 4 Consulting to Fidelity consulting. It would be doing some Change work. Blindly approached today and still need to do some homework but curious what others experience are.
If you stay in consulting but move from big 4 to boutique how much of a jump in total comp would you expect as a senior consultant (2-3years experience plus industry)... 20-30%?
If you transfer internally from one group to another group, do you get to retain your current salary in big 4 or will there be pay cut?
I wanted to know your thoughts of the business modelling team in the Deloitte or any big 4 team. How is it? Most importantly how are the hours ? Is it worst/crazy hours than Audit too?
Hello. I’m planning to apply for 2022 intake. Do y’all think leaving big 4 for a mid size firm would hurt admissions chances?
I would be able to spin more responsibility and being more involved at a management level as the practice is much smaller.
Not looking at m7 but I am looking to go abroad to UK or top 25 in US.

Advisory Consultant at Big 4 - supply chain/procurement. 2 Years at Big 4, 3.5 YOE in consulting. Can I realistically target $115k base for my next role if I change firms with a Promo??
How long do you need to stay at a firm before leaving?
I recently joined Big 4 consulting and wondering how long I should wait before looking for other opportunities. Happy to stay as long as I need to and learn along the way but this wasn't my end goal so need to update my goals timeline.
Looking for a Deloitte recruiter (or referral for bonus) in the Memphis area. Currently work for another Big 4 but am moving soon to that area. Only have two years experience. Thanks.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave.
I'd like to stick to core accounting.
It's one of the big 4 . kindly suggest. TIA
Has anyone experienced moving from a big 4 to a regional audit firm? I'm getting tired of the ridiculous hours and empty promises of raises and promotion (current economy excluded). Do they seem to care more for the employee and have a better work life balance?
How do stock units work as a partner? Typically how many stock units do you get as a first year partner at a Big 4? How much is each stock unit worth per year?
For those who switched big 4's, did you feel happier or was it the same? did you do certain things different based off your old experience(s)?
How much of a factor does using a 3rd party recruiter vs. internal recruiter vs. employee referral play in the process at B4?
Moms, please share your experiences moving from consulting to industry and how it impacted your well-being as well as sense of self when it comes to career (essentially, overall takeaways of leaving behind a consulting type place, any trade offs, etc.). I don’t know how long I can last in big 4.
My laptop bag is heavier than my carry on 😒

Any other big players?
My husband just sent in 150$ to his cousin, whose friend who was in need. I keep getting requests for help with charities, go fund me, school pta etc. I am not opposed to helping out when I can, but sometimes there are 5/6 a month. The 150$ really bugs me. It’s not the amount he sent (I would have preferred 50$). But it’s the fact that he didn’t consult me in the amount. He apologized but I am now wondering if I am too cheap.
Question about capital gains. Will I have to pay taxes if I sell off my stocks I gained a profit on but used it to buy different stocks ? Example. I bought CSTM in May and gained but I sell them and use all of it on something else like TSLA or something ?
Being a minority in this country is a safety hazard. RIP to Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright.
How do you know when to stop trying new medications and just focus on therapy/life changes? I’ve been on lexapro, Prozac, buspar, and Wellbutrin, and I can’t tell a huge difference for the better on any of them (and some of them - Prozac - made me feel worse).
I’ve been in consulting since undergrad (~6 years now). Never worked in a corporate / industry role. What should I be expecting? What did folks in similar shoes as me experience with such a move? (Feels like there is a whole mindset shift on how teams operate)
Anyone recently go through the interview process at AWS? What was the turnaround time between applying for the job online and getting a call from a recruiter?

Thinking about getting my PhD in accounting. I loved my school and helping students as a TA. My only concern is that I won't be smart enough 😕 I feel like I don't know things well beyond the basics
