Hello, I am a Linux system engineer and have been working in Oracle engineered systems from past 10 years. I got some exposure to oracle cloud but it is so difficult to get more exposure in oracle projects to build knowledge and my experience. In the Job portals , its so rare recruiters asking for oracle cloud. Looks like canada do not have much oracle projects. Hence I learned AWS. Want to make use of my knowledge but how?B4 Advisory teams do not have good oracle practice. Agree?
For people who left for google - how many years were you at big 4? I want to apply for an entry level role to google bc I rlly just cant stand big4 but only been here for less than 2 years.
Current Student interested in FDD. Have only really considered Big 4 firms for this. Looking through various bowls, I keep seeing a lot of people in FDD go from big 4 to Alvarez & Marsal and having nothing but positives. As a student, should I be considering firms like Alvarez & Marsal for FDD, or should I stick with big 4?
If you're interested in FDD at a Big 4 but are hesitant, I'd like to hear from you. I'm an FDD Partner and want to hear from good candidates that may be thinking the WLB of FDD isn't for them. Every firm, every office, every practice is different... I think I have a better model but I want to make it better and I want to share the story. Message me... give me your feedback... tell me what you're looking for.
Does anyone at McKinsey have product management or Data Analytics opportunities? Manager at Big 4 and want to also understand what level I should aim at?McKinsey & Company
BCG Final Round Decision - Down-leveled to consultant from project leader. I am a Senior Manager at PwC and recently interviewed for Digital BCG. I am 28 years old and I rose very quickly within the firm. If I were to accept BCG offer, I would not only be taking a pay cut but also would be going in 2 levels lower than my current role. I do value the prestige BCG has but not sure if Digital BCG is the same as traditional BCG. Thoughts? Boston Consulting Group
Do you (or someone else who you might know) happen to know anything about what might be the right level of a role in the sports industry to leave Big 4 consulting for? Don’t want to aim unreasonably high but also don’t want to just seek too minuscule of a role.
I'm doing a summer internship at a Big 4 in 2022. But also want to do a winter internship at a mid-size in Winter 2023 (after getting rejected for Winter 2022). Assuming that after I get a full-time offer with a short deadline to accept, does it make sense to do a winter internship in 2023?
Hello all! Anyone recommend the best PA mid size firm in NJ? I am getting sick of big 4 with the crazy hours. I like public but don’t want to deal with work 10 hours a day (cont)
If any seniors from B4 are looking to make a jump to a boutique firm in the DC market, send me a DM!
If I work in a consulting role like at Guidehouse for 6 months is it natural to pivot to a bigger firm like Big 4? I know job hopping like that is frowned upon but my friend at KPMG says consulting is an exception
Recently left for an exec position in industry. Yesterday, CEO handed me 7 proposal decks for a project we're kicking off. Two from MBB, three from B4, two from other. How the turntables...
Questions for past/ current Accenture or Big 4 folks. I noticed in some threads that SC level only applies to Strategy consulting (at Accenture- not sure about big 4). Could Product Manager be SC level if I have my MBA or is it not even considered a Strategy role? And do they only consider you an “MBA hire” if it’s from a top tier school? Lastly, I’ve seen quite a big salty range for MBA hires. Anyone care to share the latest? TIA.

If I make $500k+ working <50 hours a week am I crazy to quit and come back to consulting because I don’t feel enough ownership….
I am an Asian guy in my early 30s, but I am not good at replying messages on Tinder, Hinge, Bumble and Grinder (Majority of them are from white guys). Went to a party last weekend I briefly talked about this, an older white dude got super upset and he told me that I should "consider myself lucky" that as an Asian person, I got so many likes from white guys. But honestly, I don't care much about the race thing. Is this the same thought from many white guys? Please tell me this is wrong!!
How many years did it take you to reach partner? Which years were toughest for you at the time and why?
Most brands aren’t staffed with people who know what to do with deliveries from a brand consultancy. Maybe the CMO, but everyone else looks at it like it’s Mumbo Jumbo because it involves creativity to activate. BUT deliveries from a business consultancy are more tactical to activate. For example: knowing what products are underperforming is easy for a retail brand’s merchant to act against. (They don’t need to know WHY it’s happening, just WHAT is happening.)
Which career path on average makes me the most amount of money and work the least amount of hours? Currently as a senior w/ 4 years experience I’m working 35 hours weekly and making 85k.

So overheard after work: I left a company a while back and a coworker of mine that also left just informed me that one of the C level execs has an SEC decision against him for embezzling several million. This was from before I worked there...
Feeling a deep void in close human connection after letting go a relationship that was lacking a future (I was interested in something more, he was unsure). Can’t stop thinking of reaching out and need strength to just stay with the loneliness and have hope for the better times. Would appreciate support. It’s been 2 weeks but I feel bouts of extreme sadness and desire to have someone to share my life and days with.

When will you get out of bitcoin if you haven’t already? If you have already, do you think it’s going to stabilize around $15K, or do you just think there are better cryptos out now?
