Currently in financial services tax WAM federal group at B4, manager. Seriously considering the exit and have been applying actively in various industries (not the typical PE or hedge funds in house role). Which industry is the best in terms of growth opportunities and pay? Fintech? Info/technology? E-learning? My end goal is becoming a head of tax and I want to choose my first industry role wisely. Don't want to get pigeonholed into a dying industry.
Which Big 4 firm will be first to cut U.S. salaries? Will it happen tomorrow night, Sunday night or Monday? It's coming people it's most definitely coming.
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
How is the culture/WLB at EY Cyber in London? Any big differences to the other Big 4? Seeing a few openings on their website and just wanted to understand if it’s worth exploring them...
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
What are the current financial benefits like at all the big 4 these days after corona? (401k, pension/alternative investment contribution etc). KPMG has a pension currently but it’s been severely reduced as well as the 401k match.
As a senior 3 at big 4 with 5 years work experience .. how much savings should one be having? I am 29
At the other big 4 firms - what are the details of the maternity leave benefit? How long does someone have to be employed before qualifying? How long is the leave before labor & how long is the leave after? Thanks!
Consultant currently work for a boutique firm - about 120 people. What are some of the benefits to working for a Big 4 firm?

Has the B4 annual exodus started yet?
I have heard of at least one International tax staff being offered $120k to start at Big 4 (Boston). Is he lying, or have starting salaries become this inflated?
Do firms hire MBA grads as generalists only or is it possible to join a specific practice? For example, the customer strategy practice at big 4 or MBB
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
Best and worst of the Big 4? Serious inquiry, not here to make fun of KPMG or hype one up... And please provide why TIA :)
Question: Are MBB hours really worse than big 4?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Question for MBB consultants: Is there a set path to transition from a big 4 advisory (cyber) position to an equivalent consulting role at the big 3? Or is such a transition not possible without an mba?
What's the starting salary for audit/tax associates in big 4 in LA? Regular groups, not specialty

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
This baby is competing with my Bose NC headphones. The baby is winning. (No fault or judgement to the mother.... I feel bad for her, she's a trooper).
Any idea who is hiring H1Bs (no I-140). Every firm I have applied to, either clearly says no visa dependent or after interviewing, asks questions reg. My visa situation and then ghosts me. I am a Senior Manager with a WITCH company. Business Analysis and non technical skills
Looking at a move to industry soon but wondering to hear if negotiating salary in this job market is advisable
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
I have 30k United miles expiring in September. What’s the easiest and cheapest way to extend their validity?
Currently have AMEX gold premier rewards.. seems pretty shitty. Any better recommendations than the CSR?
If the vaccine mandate for jobs is about reducing collective health risk, than why is it not targeting the age groups that are most vulnerable to covid?
Those that are coming on here talking about offers they are getting - for the most part is this people reaching out to you, or because you were actively searching and applying?
Columbia MBA vs Kellogg MMM?
I quit my job after COVID and took a hiatus from working. I'm applying to new jobs now, how do I explain the gap in my resume?
My Facebook ads: WSJ, SPG, MmLaFleur(business clothes on demand), Delta, senior care(past project), Wine Club, and e-counseling. Nailed it!

What’s the best way you relay marketing information to sales? Have mostly relayed info about accounts active on our website/ registering for webinars via email to our sales team, and recently moved those alerts to slack. What works for you?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
