Thoughts on State Street? Got a VP offer at 150 coming from SA at 111 in B4. I've gotten opinions ranging from it being fine to staying away at all costs. Any insights would be appreciated!
I'm a risk manager with 8 years of experience in banking. If I wanted to jump into the consulting world for new experiences, are there opportunities in the Big 4 that have partial work life balance, or would I be better off in a smaller global consulting firm (ie. Accenture)?
What is an MD starting salary at the Big 4? And what is the pension like compared to partner’s pension? MD worth it?
Switched from Big 4 to industry and feel like the pace is too slow for me. Any areas in Big 4 that don’t work you to death? Big 4 audit for 1 year and coming up on 2 years in internal audit in industry. Also, what would compensation look like? Not a HCOL city.
Accepted an offer in B4 Bval, hate it here and want to switch into IBD now. What’s the best way to get hired during off-cycle recruiting?
Hey everyone. I’m starting to think I low balled my salary for a senior IT auditor in a MCOLish city. I asked for 95k. Did I lowball myself? 2 YOE in B4, no certs.
Expecting to get an offer from another firm in a week or so and planning to be gone by end of Feb after wrapping up a big engagement. Is it better to put in my resignation earlier or 2 weeks before my end date? Kinda want to make a point that i am doing that out of the courtesy for my teams so i don’t leave them hanging but at the same time I’m going to another big 4 (but will be doing different type of work) and they’ll probably tell me to pack up sooner rather than later.
How do you apply for Senior Tax position in a B4? Are they usually always hiring? What would require in pay bump coming from a local firm dealing with real estate and high net worth individuals?
Any ideas about Big 4 level consulting salaries in HK and Shanghai ? Interested in Sr Manager level numbers but really any data points will be helpful for comparison.
Is Big 4 (Deloitte, PWC, etc.) actually better for salary, branding & exit opps than a boutique firm (think Huron, West Monroe, etc.)?
For anyone who has left big 4:
Can you tell me what you had to do with your work phone? Did you give it back? Did you keep it? Thanks!
I have a few questions on EY US tax wing:
1. What's the career progression in EY like?
2. How different is the work life here from that in the other big 4, especially Deloitte?
3. And what is the expected salary range for a tax preparer?
For the second question, ofcourse I do expect really brutal hours during the season, however, when things go out of hand ( for eg. working without sleep for days together, crossing 80+ hours etc.) can we expect help in scheduling issues?
Has anyone come close to divorce or losing their family from this job? I am in audit and big 4 but I assume it applies to all major services and most firms.
Hi All! We are hiring a Sr Internal Auditor as well as an Internal Audit Manager with Big 4 exp. If you are interested in applying or learning more about Fluidra, please reach out to me!
Hi! Would anyone be willing to provide a Deloitte referral? My fiancée found a role she’s highly qualified for, but is new to considering Big 4 and doesn’t yet have the network.
I’m a senior in advisory at a B4 firm. I’m aiming for partner, but secretly would like to be part of firm leadership. Is there anything I should do differently on my way up the ladder?

People who are married and staying at their native places - Do you find it difficult at times to manage the family relations, parent's expectations especially from your working wife? I sometimes feel getting too much dragged in these things. Just looking for opinion of others and if anybody can give some suggestions on how to handle these.
Need suggestions. I am a dedicated professional with very little life outside of work. However my new boss has a way of calling me just at the wrong time. I have missed my boss’s call three of the five time he/she has called as they have been (1) on the only Friday night I was out with friends (2) post a 12 hour workday when I just stepped away for a mental break .... etc. you get the point! I am super dedicated and will work long hours as needed.

I work at a scale up, I have lots of options and stand to make some decent money if we get bought. But from what I can see there is no chance of us getting bought. B2B SaaS, 25% churn, 692 customers, 11M ARR, no product market fit, lots of tech debt, and things seem to be getting worse. We got a series A at $20M and a series B at $20M a year and a half later. Any insight for me?
