How do I become an MBB employee? Is it possible to gain experience at big 4+ACN and then get referred in??
Hello fellow Freelancers! I’ve just quit my FT job as a senior accountant at a Big 4 accounting firm. My hope is to gain enough freelance work to continue working on my own and enjoy freedoms of being a freelancer. Please send me a message if you are looking for a freelance CPA!
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
I’m a staff w/ MS in Comp Sci. What avenues or roles exist for someone to exit into the industry (mostly big tech) after spending 2 years at a big 4? Is it sensible to wait until you’re a Manager (4 years) and why if this is the case ? What about making a move within the first year itself?
I recently got selected at Accenture, I hold a better offer from big 4 now. hr is not willing to consider to match my CTC, I wish to decline the offer now. Can I quote this very reason and decline the offer?
Hey Big 4, has PWC, EY, and Deloitte committed to a "no travel until Jan 1" comment yet?
How difficult is it to transition from technology consulting at a Big 4 to management consulting at somewhere like McKinsey? Getting bored of the software, would like to get more into strategy/change
If you are not a partner, do any of the Big 4 have a mandatory retirement age? I have a friend who is working in industry and has been approached by a few firms as he has a very desirable technical skill set. He is in his 50's and doesn't want to make a move unless there is some runway to keep working. He basically could work as long as he wants where he is at. The pay increase would be significant for him to jump to but if he is mandatorily forced out in a few years it might not be worth it.
Looking to get in to Cyber Security sales. What are some of the good companies to work for? I’ve come to realize that I am not super technical, but I do like to sell, and have great communication skills. Having worked for big 4 in cyber for 5 years has taught me a lot, and would like to take risk getting into sales, and hopefully make a good return. Please help. Thank you!
Consultant currently work for a boutique firm - about 120 people. What are some of the benefits to working for a Big 4 firm?
How much are other big 4 assurance level 2 people making in the SLC area? I’m only making 60K and I feel like that’s low for how expensive things are here.
With Google employees unionizing, makes you wonder if other professional service employees could follow. What are the chances something similar happens at Big 4?
Had a friend point out that in the Big 4 majority of the minorities work in the Federal/Public sector and white’s work primarily in the commercial sector. After thinking about it for a second he might be right. Especially in Deloitte.
New consultant here - when people talk about Strategy & Operations, what exactly is the operations side and what do they do? Coming from the perspective of the B4 firms having the more prestigious S&O group, but also having a separate supply chain/operations group? What’s the difference between the two ops groups?
Any Big 4 people who work in actuary here? What's the work like? If I pass the first 2 exams, do I have a chance of transferring in?
Accepted an offer for a MM in FDD, but my current employer is offering 15k to stay, and will transfer me to the service line I desire (I have it in writing). Base is 10k more, and benefits and exits better at B4. Any reason not to stay? Not looking forward to reneging but seems like an easy decision
It’s wild to see the party of “families values” outraged that Pete Buttigieg took paternity leave. It’s hilarious to see that same party express outrage that he received paid leave yet sat by silently while Trump spent more than 310 days golfing on the taxpayer’s dime.
Wondering how much a Partner makes in Big 4 consulting? Is there really that big of a difference at the Partner level compared to MBB (starting 7 figure)?
I got a super small crack on my windshield last night (top right corner and smaller than a dime). Insurance covers it and offered to send someone over, but not until 11/15. Will it keep expanding from now until then if I keep driving? Don’t drive much, but still need my car occasionally. Thank you.
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
What happens if you don't pay your AMEX bill by the due date? I haven't been reimbursed for my expenses yet.
I was complaining about wfh initially since it was right in the middle of busy season. But now since things have slowed down and I'm working 40 hour weeks, I don't want to go back 😫
How does Deloitte staff new experienced hires at the C/SC level? Are you assigned to a project right away?
Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
Question: Current firm has policy that employees must be in good standing on date X to receive bonus. Have already signed employment offer for another firm. Should I put my notice on date X or X+1?
Our firm is going to be hiring after 10/15! 55-65 hour weeks during busy periods. Primarily looking for seniors and up, but we will also consider experienced staff. Firm is located in Los Angeles but remote is also a possibility (I’m fully remote and so are a few others). Clients we serve are ultra high net worth, real estate investors, and the entertainment industry. DM if you’re interested.

Have you participated in LeanIn Circles at your firm? Thoughts? Also, let's please keep the gender issue hating comments civil if they come at all
Just started looking for another job after being with my commercial for 6 years. I’m encountering more and more recruiters pushing the salary expectations question at the recruiter interview. Basically won’t move forward in the process if you don’t give a number or the right number (usually low). Anyone else experiencing this?
Does anyone have any insights on the Strategy& Enterprise Strategy Experienced Associate interview process? I have a chat with a recruiter this week and was wondering if anyone could give info around the timeline, interview, case question format/type, etc. Thank you!
How is the interview process at Deloitte for a non-client facing role? How many rounds does it usually take before you get an offer?
Anyone working for a small consulting firm that can share their experience? i.e workload, responsibilities, industries, comp, etc
Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
Is it reasonable to ask for a larger signing bonus if the firm says you’re not eligible for a discretionary bonus the year of joining, because you’re starting 4-5 months into their performance year?
