Reason to give for move between big 4?
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?
Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
Has pipeline slowed for you (US): MBB Big 4 Boutiques (Parthenon) Other (ATK, Strategy&)? I know lots of overlap in the type of work and clients but thought this is the best way to segment for now.
For 401k, Deloitte contributes 25 cents for every 1 dollar we contribute. Its matched upto 6% of our salary. How is it other big 4?
New to public (industry transfer). I joined a small firm growing a FDD practice. How hard will it be to move into MM or B4 and how long should I wait?

Pros/cons of going from a big 4 firm to a national, regional or advisory specific firm at a higher level? Is it worth it?
People that’ve switched from Big 4 to industry or vice versa, could you share the reason for your switch, and if you regret the move? And which level were you when you made the change?
How do you go about disclosing it to your partner/team if you’re jumping ship from one b4 to another? Don’t want to burn bridges
Question for the big-4 partners & principals, relative to the previous years ,was there a big jump in per share or per EPU for FY21? associated to operational spend reduction was significant is my understanding. Secondly do you expect that to stay in the coming years or drop back to the normal levels / progression ?

Are there any Big 4 or middle market firms that have national tax/policy (WNTS, NTS, etc.) practices that won’t work you to death?
A consideration in any early promotion should be anonymous feedback from those directly under that person. How any firm thinks a person should move up early without considering if the people they lead think positively of them is odd
Any Canadians moved to US? Canada is a pretty great country with free health care, wondering if I am missing out...would love to hear your experience.

Real talk. Why doesn't Uber have a loyalty/points program? (Besides VIP, which is a joke.) I created a new budget category just to delineate Uber from other travel. Obscene how much I spend.

What are your worst Slack grievances?
Interesting…while married he pursued women at his company in a “non predatory way” aka good old fashioned womanizer/cheater ways. What’s sad is while Melinda was focusing her efforts and 1 Billion $ to help women combat sexual harassment, bias and stereotypical representations that perpetuate harmful gender norms, her husband was the harasser.
Would you rather work for an older, more established company with lots of employees, average salary and a slow climb of the ladder to leadership? OR Would you rather work for a relatively new startup with 2000 employees, GREAT salary and quick career progression, but alot of learning because it’s a startup.? P.S. both companies are known across the globe.
What are your go-to resources for CFE CPE?
I have this feeling of anxiety always running in the background. Any advise to cope with it? 😔 I tried meditation, which helps - but only at the time I’m doing it. The anxiety comes back not long after. It’s not fun to feel like I’m on overdrive all the time. I’m unable to concentrate both on the job, and outside of that as well. Anxiety is situational mainly due to a project that’s toxic. Can’t leave as leadership isn’t letting me roll off for now.

I am currently going through a green card process with my company and they are asking me to sign an agreement, where my notice period is increased to 6 months and if I leave within 3 years, I have to repay the costs associated with my application. (Max 7k). Is this a standard practice?
Has anyone figured out what card is better to keep now that Marriott and SPG have merged their rewards? Is any one of them better than the other? Any benefit to keeping both of them? Thanks!
