Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
I’m a CPA in advisory (IT/Internal audit) but my real passion is personal finance. I’m getting the CFP but I want to know if there’s opportunity in the b4 to get that experience or do I have to quit?

How do you break into PE Ops from a mid tier consulting firm like Accenture or the big 4?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Anyone at PWC right now? What’s the company like? Psycho hours? Using modern tech (slack, google sheets, lucidchart, github, etc)? Flexible for Mac/Linux? Bunch of ego maniac micro managers? I am considering an opp there, but had bad exp at KPMG, so I am cautious about going back to a b4.

A PwC recruiting screener and manager reached out about an oracle advisory role and discussed next steps but have since gone silent. Didn’t expect this from a Big 4 recruiter... thoughts?
Anyone went from B4 to a very small consulting firm? I’m considering making the switch after 5-6yrs a B4 but worried about limited brand and recognition. On the other hand it would probably mean faster promotion and more in line with my preferred industry. Anyone made similar switch and can share some thoughts?
If we are working for a Big 4 as a Senior Consultant and expecting a promotion to Manager in the next 1.5 years and eventually want to exit into industry, then does it make sense to exit right now or take the promotion and exit?

What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?

Any PwC Managers have any advice on navigating the culture. I joined recently and already had to pull a director aside regarding how she was talking to me?

How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx

Does anyone know what the salary range is for mid-level HR roles at Disney?Disney ABC Television Group
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
