I currently work for a boutique consulting firm that has around 5000 people. I have been in consulting for 3.5 years now and am a manager at this company. I have really enjoyed working here but I want to think through my career progression and see if it makes sense to switch over to big 4 and find a better exit eventually.
What’s the best *realistic* path for a big 4 senior manager to make as much money as possible? Understanding that at this point it would be tough to exit to high finance, PE, etc. Should one pursue the Partner path, or are there more lucrative industry options? Asking for a friend.
How do I become an MBB employee? Is it possible to gain experience at big 4+ACN and then get referred in??
For the people that went from MBB to T2 / Big 4 or T2 to Big 4, what were your reasonings? We usually hear a lot from Big 4/ T2 folks going to MBB but not much from the other perspective.
How important is having an industry specialization in Big 4, specifically at Deloitte, as an audit senior?
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
People that have worked at both big 4 and regional firms what did you like better and why?
How big / mature are IT Strategy practices at MBB? How does it differ from IT Strategy at big 4?
What are typical hourly billable rates from big 4 for external audit services by role? New York or California.
Interviewing with Google for a product marketing role. Which level are they most likely to bring me in? 10 yrs exp at B4
Best answer for “Why are you interested in this firm” when applying to another Big 4 lateral move. In my case it’s money but don’t wanna say that right away to the recruiter
Hi All - I received a verbal offer from a big 4 organization about 11 days ago. I keep being told that they are waiting on final approval before they can give me the written offer. I am stating to get anxious, as I want to give my notice to my current employer and have another offer that expires at the end of this week, which I did share with the recruiter. Is this a normal timeline for these firms? Starting to get nervous that we may not get final approval. Thank you!
Is there any hiring going on at the big 4 right now? I’m a Biologist but I’m working on an MBA from W&M (love this school). I’ll be done in 6 months so I’d like to start applying for jobs this month.
I work for a small company, they are nice and it has a great work environment however I have to find a new job for my professional progression. I just finished my CFE exam and waiting for the result. Any help on how to start my job search, I have been trying to check Indeed and LinkedIn but with no luck so far. Any advice would be much appreciated. I would like one of the big 4 companies
Jokes aside, is big 4 as bad as people make it to be?
I’ve heard so many horror stories on how you’re overworked and whatever. I’m looking to leave my mid sized and debating if it’s worth applying to them or not. I’m pretty sure I can land an interview. Just don’t wanna waste anyones time if it’s not something I’ll like.
What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year?
I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4). Started with 1.9million ledger and grew to 2.7million with pipeline worked from past years that turned to wins. The pandemic hasn’t allowed much time or travel to refill the pipeline. Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
Hello hello fellow fishes,
Me (tech consulting,Big 4) and wife (Marketing, Ecom) have been doing freelance consulting gigs during weekends, around Data, AI strategy and Digital Marketing for few startups. Initial clients were referrals from our acquaintances, and now our pipeline is drying up. What are some suggestions/approaches for lead generation..?

Returned to work this week since giving birth 4 months ago. Feeling very overwhelmed and tired, honestly just sad and anxious. Tips to push forward? It feels like I am starting a new job with imposter syndrome.

Why most lawyers I know are envious? If you don't like your job position, just change it and don't blame others for your own mistakes.
A recruiter at my dream exit reached out to me a couple weeks ago. We had a phone screen where she said I’d be a great fit, but that they had just frozen hiring, and that she’d get me started in the interview process they were hiring again. 3 days ago, they posted a new opening for this role- do I wait for the recruiter to contact me, or just reach out to express interest?
If there was one thing you wanted help with, either personally or professionally, what would it be?
I joined a new company recently and found out they always turn video on during calls. I'm so annoyed this wasn't mentioned in the interview process since I now have to change my hoodie every other day 😑
How is the company as a whole? Can someone look from a long term perspective such as pay, job security?

Did any startups or main product based companies are hiring mainframe developer employees?
I informally accepted a position at Silicon Valley Bank, after attempting to negotiate a higher wage, the recruiter advised this wasn't a possibility. However, while completing the background check I received another offer from Wells Fargo. The SVB position most aligns with my career objectives but the Wells Fargo position pays more (13k difference). I want the SVB position however I would like to leverage the Wells Fargo position to negotiate a higher salary. Any suggestions on strategy?
