I believe big4s are on hiring freeze now. PwC is on hiring freeze for sure.

EY here - We are kind of on a hiring freeze, but if you are an core audit manager / senior with previous big 4 experience I’d say definitely apply.

Doesn’t hurt apply anyway. Seniors are always needed. That said, PwC froze its hirings.

Why not return to industry?

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.

Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
