Here's the thing. There used to be a big 5. Arthur Anderson and Anderson Consulting split. Then, AA went under, and we changed our name. Since then, we went public and our share price has grown 800%, not to mention how much we've grown in head count (probs 500%). There's no longer a single category that makes sense for us. We compete with everyone by design. As a business, our model works.

As far as the non-MBB consultancies go, we're not exactly a startup, but our growth has been ridiculous. I hated working at Accenture, but you can't deny it's legitimacy as a major player in the industry. Wall Street certainly doesn't, our clients don't, and you shouldn't really care about most pricks on this app, anyway.

When to put notice in? Got an in-house offer (yay) in just the right time because I’m absolutely sick of big law.

I’d like solid time off before the new gig but I also want to get paid for this month since new job isn’t until June and this is a longer month. Thinking of taking impromptu PTO sometime this month (firm has unlimited PTO so I won’t get paid anything either upon departure).

I have a decent understanding how to approach cases but don’t plan on spending every available minute of my month lead in to interviews to prep (who has this free time?!). Am I doomed to fail?

Is the PwC DDV practice actually as bad as it sounds here, or are people just venting?

From a pure career development and exit opps perspective, what’s the 🐠’s perspective on the better choice? Is the Big4 consulting tag + exit opps >>> $60-70k pay with bonuses? Also, is getting into MBB unrealistic from either/both (have a deferred admit at a T10 school)?
