What advice do you have for an A1 audit associate at a B4 trying to get into strategy? I’m tired of doing this work, it feels meaningless to me and strategy seems to be in line with what I want to do. Any advice would be great, thanks!
How's the culture in Irvine, CA? (big 4 - tax)
IOs in b4 consulting - what was most important in terms of what to know as you landed projects?
What roles would I be able to apply for at SFDC as a recent college grad? I Interned in a B4 Salesforce practice last summer (received a return offer) and recently got my admin certification.
Applied several times to Investment Banking at the Director/MD level at many of the Top 10 to Top15 investment banks. Most times, the status doesn't change or even when it changes, I have never gotten a phone screen. I have got 15+ experience with 5 in banking and 10 in Consulting - Financial Advisory (M&A / Corp Fin). Work at a small boutique and came to the US from Africa in 2012. I've given up on Big 4 positions as I sense biases in screening.
Any thoughts or insights that could help?
What’s an appropriate level for a senior manager at big 4 (7 years of strategy & ops consulting experience after MBA. 5 years of engineering experience in non tech before MBA). 2nd tier MBA?
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.
I’ve told a couple people this statement and thought it was a good idea for it to be first post in the bowl. If Vialto wants to retain and attract talent then Vialto needs to pay more than Big 4. I am hoping come July everyone recieves a more than average pay bump.
How many overtime hours pay did you all receive as an analyst? In my offer, it stated I will be eligible to receive overtime pay as a CDP analyst so how much more $$$ is that for the year? 3k? 5k? Etc
I’m currently deciding between Accenture and big 4 right now.
Hi everyone! I need some advice. I got two offers, both in Tax Tech as senior associate, one at a B4 and the other in industry. I’ve got a couple YOE in tax compliance, but concerned if leaving PA would be a good decision. TIA!!
Does starting salary as a new hire (fresh grad) for the big 4 vary from one city and another? I think NY hires get paid a little bit higher than Chicago

Thank You .
I currently run my own marketing agency, but I’ve scaled down to only consulting and I’m considering going and working for a Big 4. I’d like to expand my connections, work for something greater than myself, and have a more secure stream of income. Can I get a thread with pros and cons of working for a big firm?
Would another big 4 give early promotion? Currently Senior 2 in Tax at EY. Not getting promoted this year but pretty much guaranteed promotion next year if I stick around. I am planning to change
If you go from Big 4 to a regional firm, is it tough to go back to Big 4 10 or 15 years later if you want?
Do most of the big 4 have a pension still for partners? I thought I heard most got rid of them recently.
Recently applied to McKinsey/BCG/Bain. Anyone willing to refer? Currently at B4 Strategy with almost 1 YOE, focused on financial services
How much better are the exit opportunities for a big 4 TAS practices from MM firms? I’m not sure if I should wait around to see if another big 4 or A&M/Duff will respond to my applications as I am wrapping up my interview process with a couple MM firms (bdo, gt, rsm, cohn, etc.). I am currently an audit S2 at a big 4.
What are some exit opportunities for someone in tax tech group in a b4? Honestly not seeing anything in the market right now to make the switch. :(

Mark Bankston, the Sandy Hook parents’ lawyer in their case against the nuthead Alex Jones, impresses and inspires me.
According to his profile, he works with representing working people litigating employment matters, personal injury, corporate negligence and product defects.
I’m sure he goes to bed every night feeling he has done something good, and feels rewarded more than stressed.
I’m thinking I want to be like Mark.
But I wonder, how much do you think a lawyer like him makes?

I've just been broken up with by a girl I love - any thoughts on trying to hold on to her?
I've been seeing a girl for about 6 months. She's said she's into me, and that I treat her well, and took a big step of introducing me to people that really matter to her 3 weeks ago.
Her reason is stress - She's doing a masters and has just been evicted so can't afford to stay in the same city. When her masters ends in December she may have to move back to the US, as she might not get a job here.

Boss (also CEO) hated the execution of an internal event we held today. With all of the external projects I’m working on currently, I delegated the event to a Manager on my team. She was given checklists/guides to follow, weekly oversight from my end, and has attended 5 previous internal events of the same nature so she’s very familiar with the process. We even held a dry run to prep before the event today. How much of this falls on my shoulders? CEO is pissed but I feel like I did all I could.
