Biggest factor for me would just be getting the F out of BAH!!

like

Agree with BAH-1. Former BAHer now at Deloitte and incredibly happy with that switch.

like

Pwc and Deloitte low ball the shit out of me, come to ACN!

like

Really disappointed with the culture at BAH as well as interesting project opportunities.

like

Three years. Made the move to commercial though since Booz Allen's re-entry into commercial was, ahem, slow...

like

KPMG! The strategy team is grown organically rather than through acquisition, which means all the people here actually want to be here and there's no weird cultural stuff going on (... Sorry strategy&, Monitor, Parthenon, ... )

@D3 I tried to get into BAH commercial but very few opportunities. Need. To. Get. Out. Of. Fed.

like

ITT: People who have vastly different experiences by group/alignment within their respective firm.

Be wary here, OP. I personally found PwC Culture > rest and the people I work with are usually pretty top notch.

like

I think we all want to make the switch, just waiting for an opportunity that is approachable and low-risk enough that we wouldn't land on our ass 4 months in.

like

Compensation mostly. PwC low balled me too but I couldn't be picky. It was higher than my industry job.

like

Deloitte over KPMG. Figure Deloitte on my resume should provide better exit opportunities down the road.

like

@D3 how long were you with BAH before switching?

like

Based on everything I've heard why would you do anything other than Deloitte S&O?

like

@D3 - did you move to S&O from BAH? Been thinking about the move to D for a while, does a clearance at D come with a decent compensation bump? BAH doesn't seem to care. Want to get into commercial regardless, just curious

like

Interned with PwC got full time offers @ very big 4. I chose PwC because I had already interned there. Go where you know the most amount of people or wherever your network is the strongest

like

People here are pretty biased. You gotta ask those who switched firms.

like

Deloitte - accepted, EY - weird start date and didn't like my interviewers, PwC - lower compensation offer

Yup. I've been at Deloitte for awhile now. It will be easier if your background provides a good basis for helping commercial clients.
