Depends on what you want. You have more work life balance at goldman. Risk assurance big 4 will open more doors as you're exposed to a lot of clients.

Their IA is not good man. Be cautious. Some companies' IA are very actively and IA can become officers pretty quickly. But other IAs are just IA forever

Thoughts on moving from Big 4 audit to Financial Advisory? Pay jump would be about 50%, but the new firm is small. $25M in revenue and new office in my city - I feel like there is a good amount of risk. I’m a S1 about to be a S2

Would you lateral from B4 into McKinsey as EM or take an industry offer that is $50k more in TC (thank MCK offer) and better wlb? The biggest push against taking the industry offer is that I’m not sure that i am super passionate about the industry or want to commit to that industry for the longer term. I am thinking I would be able to get similar exit opps assuming I do not make it to AP. What would you do if you were in my situation? It’s a good place to be, but I am losing sleep over this. TIA

Hi, what is a typical senior consultant compensation at EY Singapore? I have been asked to quote my expectation so I want to understand what range should be acceptable. Any big 4 information will also do. Thanks!

When I started in public 5-6 years ago most associates and seniors were willing to put in 60+ hour weeks. Now it seems that people are less willing to and want more money from firms sooner. Are others noticing this? If so, do you think that the public accounting model will change in the future? Perhaps hiring more with less hour expectation per person or some other solution.

I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?
