Does PwC India always take a lot of time with their interview process?
Finished my technical and managerial a week back. HR said that i have cleared but yet to receive information whether there will be Director round or they will go for offer.
A SAP functional waiting to get into Big 4.
Wow I thought after I had my CPA and three years experience at a national PA firm doing audit, I could land any job I wanted. Turns out not the case lol. I am getting ghosted on my applications for senior accountant / financial analyst positions for bigger name companies.. Wish I did B4 now, anyone experiencing the same thing?
Big 4 audit graduate (private equity audit) looking to move in to deal advisory once qualified.
I’m trying to decide between an internal move to corporate finance or transaction services. Anyone have any advice over this move, both short term and long term? Are there any downsides to either? Or downsides to staying in big 4?
How do you transition from big 4 consulting to big law? My clients are all funds, and I do international tax consulting. I have used my connections to refer me into probably 10 big law firms and it’s not working. One most recently came back and said they aren’t interested bc I have no law firm experience. How am I supposed to get it though? I can’t go to lower ranked firms bc my clients are all “big.” … any suggestions appreciated!
Does anyone know which big 4 is the most diverse? I’m in the LA office and there isn’t much diversity in my group despite the fact that the city is pretty diverse.

I’m aware of all comp elements in determining comp but feels a bit low? Thoughts?
I often hear people say not to worry about titles if the money is there. But there is a big different between title and role/responsibility. Would you jump from Sr. Manager to Manager at a different Big 4 for a significant bump in pay? In this example the titles are an apples-to-apples comparison between firms and you would be taking a step back in both title and role/responsibility/hierarchy. That is very different then going from Sr. Manager to Analyst at a company where Analysts have 10 YoE.
For the past 2 years I have completely obsessed with the idea of becoming a big 4 partner. I took the kool-aid willingly and essentially started injecting it into my veins. (Continued within)
Which of the Big 4’s in NYC have a strong client base in Technology/tech software startup companies ?
If you leave a local firm and go to big 4, there's an obvious learning curve, no? How have you all seen that addressed if coming in at the SA level from a smaller firm ?

Hi! I’m currently a Brand Manager in Toronto with 10 yoe in corporate level retail (fashion, gift, lifestyle) and a background in merchandising and hand-crafted visual display (Anthropologie and Indigo), considering a pivot to Tech in someway, but not sure what roles to look at.

It’s not your job you want to change, that’s just the easy thing. You want it all, you want freedom in life, you want to be able to do whatever you want everyday. Sure, you need income, that’s easy. Allowing yourself to live by your own rules that’s hard. I know there will be a few haters on this one, that’s great. My hope is it inspires just 1 to take action. Not tomorrow, today, be free, put Life first
