I’m a second year associate at mid market firm, did my first year at a big 4 but got laid off last year due to covid. I’m motivated to return to big 4 but I’m concerned with how that looks, switching firms pretty quickly.

Is it challenging to crack into big 4 as an experienced hire but one that doesn’t have a lot of senior experience yet? Appreciate any insight!

Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

Does anyone use Root insurance? I’m intrigued by the low prices (my quote is about $85 vs my current $150 with State Farm) but am concerned as to whether it’s legitimate. More specifically if I ever do get into a serious accident are they reliable? This assumes same coverage for both policies.

I’m 3 years into strategy consulting (eg, market entry, commercial DDs, market growth, etc) and I’m curious what industry exit opportunities are out there beyond joining an in-house Strategy team. I don’t have any real technical skills beyond ppt and model making. I’m great with people and know how to structure strategy projects. I’m having a hard time visualizing where my skills fit in industry.
