Debating taking a job in Investment Banking but worried if I get placed into the wrong group I might not have the mental stamina to last more than 6 months. If this is my 2nd job out of college, will a short stint/quick departure ruin my chances at a top business school as opposed to taking a Big 4 consulting job and riding that out for two years then applying?
Any advice on how to explore exit opportunities? I’m a senior in international tax and starting to feel pretty over the big 4 life so want to explore what’s out there. Currently work on a lot of PE/VC
I’m a manager in PwC’s human capital practice. I’m getting recruiting messages from the other Big 4, as I imagine most of us are. I’m interested in hearing about human capital consultants who went from PwC to one of the other firms, as well as people who came from one of the other firms to PwC. Happily ever afters as welcome as horror stories here. Thanks!
Seek advice on exit approach: 5+ experience niche consulting in telco & digital strat + 1.5 w/ big 4 digital execution n mgmt. Attracted to Program/Product Mgmt at FAANG but how to market self?
Anyone hear of clearsulting? Have seen a lot of ex-big 4 going over there and seem to be growing really fast. Started in 2015.
I see news articles all the time about Big 4 entering the legal market. Has anyone heard of this? I’m curious to see if an attorney providing legal services while working at B4 will make the same as a big law associate. Could this be the end of the huge big law starting salary?
How long does it typically take for a big 4 firm to get back to you after applying for an experienced hire position? It’s been a week and I haven’t heard a peep.

How does the rest of this bowl feel about ibm consulting...? Is it comparable to b4 or a step below/above? Very curious
In Big 4 Consulting, what are some perks Directors/Partners get that other practitioners do not.
I have two years of B4 audit experience, and currently in consulting (not strategy) @ $100k. I am not learning in my position and do not feel challenged. Are there any exit possibilities for me if I were to leave consulting at the 1 year mark? I would be looking for something more related to accounting, and ideally near $150k full comp. I was thinking of shooting for FAANG but pay seems to be low $100s..
Not sure if education matters at this point but I got a masters from an Ivy (non-MBA)
Hi everyone. I am senior right now at UF, one semester away from my bachelors in business administration, 3 semesters away from my MS in Information Systems and Operations Management w a specialization in Information Technology from UF.
This summer (in a month) I’ve locked in my first internship with a big 4 in IT Audit. IT Audit isn’t my end goal career wise but I’m grateful for the opportunity.
How do I get into cloud security/Big4 IT consulting considering my background?

I’ve worked in other fields prior to healthcare and have a hard time believing every (pick profession like PT) gets paid exactly (pick random number like $72,345). I’m skeptical because it sounds like “we have levels/tiers of fixed pay and can’t budge” is just an excuse to shut down negotiation right away. Can anyone share their experience?

At what point is it considered optimal to make the jump from Big4 to FAANG? I've been a Tech Consultant at EY for a little under a year and, while I like the company very much, I do very little actual technical work. Experienced hire, Senior, 130k base. I'm very tempted to jump over to Amazon (despite their reputation for frugality). Do I attempt to make the switch now or wait until I get promoted to Manager?
