If I get a CFA but have zero experts in investing or portfolio management, will the Charter, alone, get me a job? If so, what would my expected salary be? I’m 40 yrs old with 14 yrs of public sector Defense Budget experience making $102K now for a Big 4.
Currently preparing for a shift to a startup, where I’ll initially be making less money than I do now in Big 4, but I believe in the mission, the founder, and the vision. Any advice for preparing for the leap?
In big 4 consulting firms (MC), what firms are used in benchmarking? Just saw that Goldman is increasing bases for entry hires ~30%, does this signal an upcoming bump?
Where do more boutique firms (like Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Huron, zs, slalom) rank in comparison to big 4 or Accenture or ibm? I know mbb is top tier but I feel like everyone else is debatable

Any big 4 🐠 recently ask to start the secondment process to London? Wanting to gauge how receptive the firms are right now
Are Big 4 (US back office in India) very stringent with Independence (securities etc)? I dnt work directly with the clients. I have slightly delayed declaring my securities and also made a mistake which I am unable to change now.
What accounting/industry firms (Big 4 and otherwise) offer seasonal positions for experienced professionals? At PwC we have the "flexible talent network" for people to work 3-6 months a year.
This may sound odd but I want to eventually work at all the big 4. To me it'll be like collecting infinity stones. Once you work at all 4, what crappy super power do you get? Currently 25% of the way there
Hi guys, a prior boss now friend of mine is a partner within the big 4. He wants to ask what is an average salary of a Partner in the Big 4 (Cyber/Tech) with 20 + years of experience since he knows he is underpaid. Anyone got some ranges ? This shall help him renegotiate. Thanks!
Why is attrition heavy in big 4?
What are some Tips you have for big 4 experienced hires? Am planning on taking cpas before I start and want to ensure I can do as much possible before I start to make transition process smoother.
How do you nip convos you think are borderline inappropriate in the bud? With a B4 partner (my boss) so I can’t be too brash. Maybe just quickly change the subject or stop responding (via IM)?
I can't wait for the first zombie movie to go extra realistic and have a bunch of entry level hires at Big 4 firms complain that being eaten by a zombie is preferable to closing hair salons.
I feel like these “incredible” exit opportunities consulting gives you is only applicable to MBB (i.e, companies only value MBB experience vs others). Any successful exits from Big 4 folk?
I am sure it's been asked before a few times but I didn't see straight forward answers after searching. Trip to Kauai - Me and SO, we are fit, hikers, and will travel all over the island for hiking and snorkeling at remote locations. Pick one hotel and please tell me why?

Everyone I know who was crazy safe during COVID round 1 is now sick. I think it’s because they didn’t get any exposure for so long. If we have another lockdown, what does it mean for public immune system ability to fight other viruses?
Does it mean anything if your recommender is your DGL who went to HBS and you are applying there?I’ve heard in megafund PE it carries some weight of you are an associate and a partner sponsors you.
Anyone know if Sheraton Seattle has a lounge? Usually stay at one of the Marriotts there but switching it up this week.
Covid Progression 1) Wait for Herd Immunity 2) Just protect yourself with the vaccine 3) we need to incentivize people to get vaccinated 4) don’t worry that the vaccines don’t work, still get them 5) we need to ban the unvaccinated from society 6) “I got my twelfth booster shot” 7) “the unvaccinated are killing people” 8) “are we justified in getting rid of antivaxxers from a utilitarian standpoint?” 9) “please step on this train sir” 10) gov labels anyone against lockdowns domestic terrorist

ClearView Healthcare Partners anyone willing to provide a referral? Applying for an entry level consultant position (PhD). Happy to chat about my credentials, resume etc.
So apparently the $9M fine PWC paid was because one of the partners was banging a client 😂👌🔥
My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣
Any ideas on how well flatiron health pays? Looking at their manager in product operation and product marketing roles and wasn't sure. Not too much info online and Glassdoor might be old

Is a breakaway from Tech consulting to economic development possible? What are your stories or stories you’ve heard? Thanks for all advice/opinion. 2 years in after college with recent promotion
wanted to share this messed up situation I was in: was casually dating a person for 2 months and they told me they were engaged for two years before (which I didn’t really care). But the important piece of the information they left out was the fact that the person they were engaged to is literally their current roommate (which I have met many times and brought them snacks). Now I feel really lied to and silly. I was really trying to be a genuine person and supported them when their dog passed. 🥴
This is not a recruiter question specifically, but how do you approach your manager about a promotion?
