Can anyone market size how much business either big 4 or MBB generate for hotels, airlines, and car rentals? This could be a great case.
There's a consulting team (probably big 4) that's been working in the conference room next to mine and they have 2 Costco-sized bags of trail mix on their table. #respect
What’s the general experience with leaving B4 going to smaller, local firms? Is it big fish in small pond? Worth it? Hate it?
Have an opportunity to be a loaned staff for a company I find really interesting for 2 years. Should I be cautious of this? Seems like a good opportunity but I’d likely miss out on the typical career progression of a big 4 firm
Grad job advice needed! Should I take a data analyst role at a no-name boutique or non-strategy/non-finance Advisory role (Physical Asset Management) in Big 4? My end goal is to end up in Strategy (MBB, LEK, Kearney, Big4Strat) after an MBA or by networking. Which role would set me up the best? Thank you kind sirs.
Currently a first year senior in regional firm. I just got off the phone with a recruiter at big 4 and they want to offer experienced staff position with almost $10k lower salary. Any thoughts?
Anyone at b4 merge your phone number to the company issued cell phone? Do they get to keep your number if you leave? I’ve had the same phone number my entire life and don’t want to lose it…not that I ever plan on leaving.
Is everyone experiencing 6 days a week full work schedule in the big 4 lately, 5 days on and 6 days working is getting common #moderndayslavery
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 just moved to a foreign country and I am really in need of a job. I applied to a big 4 and spent weeks making it through interviews only to get turned down, because they wanted someone with big 4 experience. How can I get big 4 experience if a big 4 isn’t willing to hire me? I feel defeated.
If you left your Big 4 gig and had these two options, which would you take & why? Slalom - slight bump, better work life bal., still consulting Local F100 - slightly less pay, .....
Anyone have experience moving from a mid-tier firm to B4? What big differences have you found in work load and stress level if any? Is the switch really worth it. Currently A2 and on track to S1.
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
Level unlocked - A big4 partner who interviewed and grilled me for 45 mins said 'It doesn't feel like an interview cos I wasn't able to make you feel uncomfortable' Why am I posting this here - Motivation, fwiw. 4/5 months ago I was probably the most awkward, anxious non native interviewer. Got a McK interview, practiced like never before, failed the final round due to anxity/casing eff ups. Although I failed, gained lot of confidence and have been flying thru tier 2/b4 interviews since.

@Big 4 consultants / advisory fish: Is your trading policy super strict? Just got married and my wife works at EY. Seems like it’s a very very strict policy. Is EY an outlier?

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Free and Reduced Lunch, pensions, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, caring for your neighbor, and PUBLIC EDUCATION. That’s just a small list of things I’m told I should hate because they’re all socialist. I’m not at all sorry to report that I’m FOR all of those things. Call me whatever you want.
MBA 🐠 I took the GRE after undergrad. Happy with the score. Should I still take the GMAT before applying?

Hey Fishes, Whats the salary range for a senior consultant at EY GDS. Its for GDS PAS WFA team, if it helps. Thanks.
I currently work at a very ”hyped” food delivery tech company. I’ve been there for 1,5 years now, but the pay is low, bad company culture and I don’t feel appreciated for the work I do. So i’m overall not to happy there, and looking for a new job. However every interview I’ve had so far ask why I want to leave such a ”great” company after less than 2 years? I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?
