How do you leave a mid-market for B4 opportunities? I've been researching positions online given its recruitment season, and barely see roles for 1-2 year experience.
Is Publicis Sapient a consulting firm or contracting company? Is it an option considering a move from Big 4 to Publicis
After finishing your first year as a post MBA senior associate, I've heard / read there's a 10-15% bump in salary in the big 4. Is this true?
Has anyone made the jump from compliance to M&A tax as a manager recently? I applied to couple of the Big 4 but was pretty much turned down by the recruiters. Total of 6 years of experience with 4 years at a Big 4. Any advice or tips to improve my chances?
Okaaaay 🐠 need some opinions on this. I turned down B4 to come to Google (at a smaller salary admittedly). The partner from the B4 reached out to me with a pretty significant offer, I know him personally as we worked together at my old company which has its benefits.. Offered M1, $160k base, $10k sign on, and 20% bonus. Currently at $115k base, 30k/yr in RSU and 15% bonus. I’m a PgM at Google and still a consultant by definition, figure I’ll be in consulting for the long run. Thoughts on this?
Which of the big 4 has the best exit opportunities for FDD (MBA / corporate opportunities) ?
Everyone’s shitting on EY right now, but does anyone else think there’s a good chance the rest of the big 4 will follow suit on unlimited PTO?
What salary hike to expect on top of current base if trying to boomerang within big 4 in 1 year. I moved to KPMG at a 30% hike last year.
Deloitte really pushed that they were a highly sought after firm for good exit opportunities, and my impression was that they were number 4 after MBB. After being part of this bowl and trying to find exit opps for the past few months, it seems like nobody cares much for the Deloitte brand. What are your thoughts?
I'm starting my FDD position in August with no prior experience. For the people who do FDD at a Big 4, how often have you been traveling for work and do you expect that amount to increase in the future?
What is it like in industry if your role is SEC and SOX? Is that a good path or is it a dead end with Big 4 like hours?
how much is guidehouse really offering to B4 external hires with 2-3 YOE? sounds like what they’re offering is insanely higher compared to similar roles at other b4
Any tips / tricks / insights on the B4 experienced hire interview process? I’ll be applying through referrals / all my referrers joined out of UG / MBA. 2.5yr experience (non-consulting).

What are the big 4 stereotypes?
This is going to sound stupid - but how do you work on your research skills as an associate at a big 4? Feel like unless you're not working on a consulting project or are an acting senior there's no real reason or opportunity to research stuff....
Is IAAS really that much better than the other big 4? Lots of wins this year but maybe the others are winning lots also?
Ahh close to the end of busy season. The time where stress levels are at an all-time high and team members start throwing each other under the bus. 😒😒😒#goodtimes
If I helped out on a project "pro bono" (wasn't billing to it) - i have subject matter expertise in something so I helped a team out by way of a few 30 min calls, some emails - is it ok to (cont)
I'm so done with poorly planned projects. Under budgeted, and unrealistic timelines. If only, I had a way out... Ahhhh...
@EY Does the firm reimburse for the cost of an uber/taxi when you work late in NYC during busy season?
Any mid level account positions open in Chicago? Too many sales and staff agency posts everywhere. Thanks.

Any leads on agencies or in-house creative teams hiring designers in NYC? Getting nervous now that it’s summer and things tend to slow down...
I have flights for 2 separate interviews and won’t need one of the segments (interview 2 is flying me out from 1’s location). Should I tell the 1st company I won’t need that flight segment anymore?
Anyone here ever have a severe muscle laceration or tear? Looking for recovery expectations and advice — fell while skiing and landed on the ski edge, cutting 75% through my outer quad
Anyone here who moved from India to work in consulting in the US - I'd love to hear what you wish you know when you started - I start this summer and would love to understand expectations.
Would really appreciate your advice: pre-covid I was in talks to join 3 of the big 4. Covid happened and they decided not to move forward due to the uncertainty. Now, I have interviews with Guidehouse. I’m a BA at a no name org and would really like to move on. If I decide to go to Guidehouse, how easy/difficult would it be to go back to private sector consulting vs. public sector consulting, assuming I am doing private sector consulting now? WWYD?
Ladies - how many dates did you go on before you slept with your partner? For the single gals, how many dates before you feel comfortable doing so? I know it varies based on individual and chemistry but curious if 5th date is too soon?
I have over $200k in checking. Yes I know it is a waste. What do I do to invest in safer areas? Where do I begin? Already have a stock etf account (seperate) but want to now invest in other safe areas which can assure returns. Please help.
