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?
Jesus fucking Christ... why do certain managers in Big 4 need to be passive aggressive assholes #pissed
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
Can anyone explain the manager contract at Deloitte (i.e. can I not work at another big 4 or previous client without approval)?
MBB strategy, Big 4 Implementation 👍
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.
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.

Post to test
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...
What is considered a bad attitude at work? Is tone of voice important and is it something people will complain to managers about?
How would you suggest combating the “diversity hire” stereotype in your firm? A lot of managers at my firm don’t want to work with “diversity hires” because they think those people got a large advantage in the application process and aren’t as likely to be qualified as a result.
Anyone seen the new stupid exit out of the delta JFK terminal that screens you? Extra 10 mins to commute
