Anyone here gone from big 4 to MBA to MBB? Any tips? Planning on recruiting for summer internships in the fall but heard “interesting” work experience (I.e., blue chip, IB, engineering) is what gets you an interview, while I have very “uninteresting” work experience coming from big 4. Any insights are much appreciated!!

Anyone here from EY Tysons Corner (Assurance Service Line) want to tell me about the firm culture, is it a great learning environment, client base? I got an offer for Senior 1 but want to be sure I’m making the right decision to go Big 4 or jump down to mid-tier. SN: I started at a smaller National firm but left years ago for industry so I’ll be coming in somewhat starting from square 1 but at a senior 1 level.
Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.

EY 🐠: does EY have cost of living salary adjustments or is salary consistent across city tiers?
Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
Need Opinion: Is it worth the effort and money to pursue an MBA while been a manager in Big 4? Essentially, does help to step up my career.

Thank you in advance.

TFW the pain of starting the day after 4 hrs sleep is eased by an enormous, new, super soft and fluffy Heavenly bath towel. Westin FTW.
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?

I have 2 job offers, one in San Francisco and one with a Fortune 500 company in Nashville. Is going to San Francisco worth it if the pay is comparable?
I’m burnt out from consulting. I found something I love (dream company, title jump, enjoyed getting to know all of my interviewers), but the position is a 6 month contract and a 25% hit on salary/40% hit on total comp. I’m lucky enough where the money doesn’t hurt (on parents insurance and living with family) and there is scope to extend the contract 3-6 months after the initial period. I’m planning on b school next year, so if I do this for 12 months I’ll take the summer off. What would you do?
Can a partner from California explain why it’s okay not to pay your junior staff overtime as non exempt employees as required by law?
Tempted to rsvp yes to summer intern events about one month after my due date (our second), Feel like some social events would be fun, but is that just wishful thinking?
Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
What's with the saturation of self help/ productivity books on social media (reddit, Instagram etc.) ? Not saying I don't mind reading them, but I see this quite a bit. Know a few people who consciously only read non fiction instead. Just thinking aloud over here. Would like to hear what you guys think ?
Team member gave her three week notice. I will likely have to pick up majority of her work for the foreseeable future (which is very different from my assigned work). My company is on a hiring freeze and reduced salaries. Sooo do y’all think it hopeless to ask for some sort of raise or bonus of some kind?
