Thinking of making a switch from mid-tier firm working in alt investment tax to Deloitte with the HNW individual tax group in NY.. Can anyone describe the hours, salary, culture? Should I go for it?

I think those are good questions to ask during your interview. The Big 4 get a bad wrap, but we definitely have more programs than mid tier. If you're concerned about the hours then ask. We do have official flexible work schedules you can enter into with HR that allow you to work from home a few days a week or work less than 40 hours (not sure if that's an option financially for you). Point being, be honest during the interview and lay everything out. If it's not a fit, they will tell you right there. The last thing they want is for you to start and then quit immediately. That's not in the best interest of anyone.

Absolutely. Worst case scenario, you get paid more, absolutely hate the new job, stick it out for a year and have Deloitte on your resume before jumping back to your mid tier who accept you with open Aran.

Any particular reason you want Deloitte? When I moved, I interviewed at all the Big 4. While I ended up choosing PwC because I liked them the best, it didn't hurt to be able to tell them I had other offers and what those offers were. PwC was then able to up my offer from the other firms by a few grand, making the decision easy. Having the other offers on the table might make you a couple grand. Not huge in the long run, but always nice.

Thanks PwC 1 I have KPMG on my resume but for a very different industry not related to where I want my career to go. You think having big4 on my resume in my desired industry is preferred? I'm just nervous about the hours being a lot more overwhelming considering I have a new baby at home

To your point about B4 on resume in preferred industry, I'd say it absolutely is a plus. You don't need me to tell you that regardless of which mid tier you are at, B4 is seen as more prestigious and has a wider network. It may not be a huge deal, but it's something. I think you should take the interview and just be honest with them regarding what you are looking for out if the move. If what they need from the hire matches up with what you're needs are you could have a fit. If not, then you both go on your own ways.

I agree. Be open about concerns about hours/flexibility. I've worked at EY and PWC and both firms have always done their best to make reasonable accommodations for people who have families/need flexibility.

Right now I have 2 busy seasons... Feb - April and July - Sept... Working anywhere from 65-85 hours per week

@PwC1 agreed, a few grand extra is always nice! I am not opposed to other big4 I just saw that Deloitte had an open position in the geographical location that was beneficial for me

Thank you both @PwC1 and @PwC2
