In Tech at D. Over my past 4 projects they seem to really burn us into the ground overwork us. Is that just my bad experience? Other Big 4 have a similar issue?
I’m trying to hop between big 4 consulting roles. Presently, I’m a life science PhD and MBA hire to EY with 3+ YOE as a Senior consultant/associate. Do I have any shot at manager roles assuming I focus on life science roles? I’m concerned my lack of manager title kills any chance I have of joining another firm as a manager.
Is audit experience mandatory for advisory in big 4? I applied EY FAAS but has been told by recruiter that audit experience is required. So they recommend me to go to audit team for two busy season then apply for FAAS. Can anyone let me know if It’s true? Also if I go to audit WAM. Is it going to limit my opportunities to only FS industry when I apply for advisory like one year later? I want to work on different industry clients in advisory in the future. Btw I do not have audit experience now.
Uber driver yesterday: Of thr big 4, you must be PwC, they always have great personalities. All the Deloitte folks I get are uptight and douchey. (his words, not mine.)

What are MBB offices like? Are they similar to Big 4 offices? Why have I never seen 'McKinsey' written on a building like I see with Big 4
I understand that when you put in your two weeks to got to another Big 4 that they usually release you that day…. But do they pay you for the two weeks?
An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?
New consultant here - when people talk about Strategy & Operations, what exactly is the operations side and what do they do? Coming from the perspective of the B4 firms having the more prestigious S&O group, but also having a separate supply chain/operations group? What’s the difference between the two ops groups?

Dear fellow professionals, hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I wanted to get your guidance and inputs on one thing - I got an offer in Germany (currently in a Big 4 in USA) . I wanted to check what are your thoughts in this bug move, any helpful tips, inputs, resources if you would like to share. Appreciate your time and inputs. Thanks!!
I'm getting a good amount of phone screens (guessing big 4 + CPA is getting me past the resume screen), but after that I'm honestly stuck. How do I frame risk assurance in a way that makes me valuable for financial analysis type roles? I have no experience with financial modeling, for example. I feel like I can BS about how I understand business processes, but then when it comes to technical knowledge I lean on "I'm a CPA" since the work experience sucks. Controls work is not very transferable.
So EY Advisory, Deloitte Advisory, Grant Thornton, etc have recently mandated 45 billable hours/wk, up from 40. Clearly this isn't firm-specific. Anyone have any insights on what's really going on?

My wife sells insurance so I am sure she views me as a customer but I am curious how much life insurance you 30 and 40 somethings have out on yourself?
I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
