What Tier do the B4 Advisory/Consulting practices (excluding MD, S&, EYP) count as? I know T1 is MBB, T2 is ATK, OW, RB, EYP, S& etc. T3 being boutiques. Where does B4 sit?
Do you think working in IB would be worth it for someone that isn’t head over heels about IB? I think I would enjoy the work (currently big 4 FDD, with a bit of valuations mixed in), but seeing my roommate deteriorate physically, mentally, socially over the past 3 years makes it hard to want that same job. It is not as glamorous as I thought it was while I was in university.
7 years of Consulting experience in Financial Services and currently a manager with a Big 4 . Experience includes Feasibility Assessments, CBAs, Program Management, SDLC (All phases),
Applied for a B4 senior forensic role, but was not even granted an interview after my initial phone screen with HR; I’m confused why because i thought they needed bodies. My background includes 4 years of forensic experience on multiple investigations and program oversights, 5 years in other professional, non-forensic roles, and i have both a CFE and a CPA under my belt. The phone screen was basically HR asking if i have used google suite and tableau
Offer for ZS but don’t have any life science experience (can’t speak to if I enjoy or not) - is it foolish to accept on the risk I do not enjoy? I’m in non strategy at big 4, think zs has higher probability of providing me exposure to that work
Looking for advice in potentially moving from boutique to B4 or MBB. Things to consider? Starting the conversation?
How do you resign from the Big 4? Like who should be the first to know you’re putting in your 2 weeks?
I'm at EY in the FSO Tax service line and I am hating it, should I switch service lines or go to a different Big 4 firm? If so, which firm has been the best as for as work life balance.
I was on a partner/manager call today and they were discussing the “high” turnover at the senior and experienced associate level. What was shocking is that while ours is about double normal, evidently we are 3 out of 4 in turnover meaning 2 of the Big 4 are even higher.
I’ve spent 4 years in Big 4, with about half that time in FDD. I feel like Corp Dev is what I ultimately want, but am wondering if a stint in banking could be worth it. If I’m not interested in PE or other buyside alternatives, is the pit stop in IB worth it?
Mainly wonder if IB is a must have box to check, or if you can work your way up the ladder without.
Senior B4 FDD salaries NYC. Is this over/underpaid? Asking for a friend.
How high is the entry barrier in SF if you’re not a recent Big 4? The two help each other get business at clients, so wouldn’t a B4 have one up with a warm intro from a partner etc.?
Hi all, loved my first year in consulting but family situation may need me at home. Any former consultants at a tech company in Austin? Already in ATX, Big 4 M&A Ops, six years in tech before MBA.
Idk what to do anymore...I feel like accounting may not be for me. I am an extremely hard worker and intelligent. In school I pretty much received all A’s in my accounting courses and landed at a Big 4 upon graduation. After school and beginning to work things have been a different story. It seems like no matter where I go I can’t get people to consistently work with me. They always nitpick very small things and as a perfectionist it is driving me crazy.
Currently in B4 faas and I an I thinking about applying to mba programs in 2-3 years, does having my cpa help or matter? Or should I just focus on studying for the gmat?
What’s the deal w KPMG Strategy? Recruiter reached out from there but I didn’t even realize they had a strategy practice. Do they mostly do M&A DD or “traditional” strategy? Or is it just a fancy name for traditional Big 4 advisory?

Do you center family planning around where you’re at in your career? A few years ago I told myself the appropriate time to start a family would be when I made 6 figures. I’ve hit that milestone and still cannot envision children for myself. Seems like there’s no such thing as stability and layoffs are rampant this year. Maybe it’s just the world we live in now but children sound like a terrible financial decision and an added stressor if anything could go wrong with my job or cost of living.
Went out over the weekend and a creepy guy decided to stick his face into my hair and inhaled deeply. I ended up punching him, it was an instant reaction. He is demanding an apology and that I pay for his urgent care cost. Do I have any opinions here. I don't think i owe him anything.
