Has anyone left big 4 with nothing lined up because it was best for your mental health? Senior 1 not sure why it says I’m a staff.
Thoughts on Masters in Environmental Management programs? UCSB, Yale, etc. I have a non-technical degree (Bachelor of Arts) and have been in management consulting at a Big 4 the last 5 years. I want to pivot my career to do something more meaningful - make a positive impact in the world, rather than continuing to help rich corporations get richer. Thinking that doing a Masters will help arm myself with environmental / sustainability knowledge and a network.

Are there any extra considerations for Backdoor IRA from pension rollover? I received a $6200 payout from a B4 pension lump sum upon leaving the firm last year.

Are there any other tax considerations besides normal income tax for this process?

I have a supervisor who nitpicks things the way you would for an intern or a junior and I’m trying to navigate. I had a positive 6 month review recently so I think she sees it as constructive rather than cutting me down. For example, she will ask me to attend a meeting in her stead or write an email for her and she will completely edit my notes or my email not spelling errors or anything but completely reformatting and there’s no real pattern to the way she does it so I’m not learning.

Currently working out of Philadelphia in Internal Audit and Risk Advisory for a top 10 public accounting firm. Most likely getting promoted to senior in the new FY. I want to make the switch to management consulting by the end of this year and jump to Big 4. Should I wait to switch after getting promoted to senior or it doesn’t matter? Any other tips?
