Moving from a boutique (<30 employees, MBB competitor) to the strategy practice of a Big 4. Have only worked for boutiques in the past, so I’m expecting there to be some major differences in terms of working style. What are the major differences and ‘watch outs’ you would point out to me? Could be anything from culture, to red tape, to compliance etc.

How much weight does brand name consulting firms have on top MBA programs? For example, is it significantly better to work for MBB firms vs. big 4 vs. well known specialized boutique firms?
I moved from B4 to industry accounting about 5 years ago. I currently work as a corporate accounting manager at a software company. I recently hired an big 4 audit senior right out of public and I’m struggling to get him up to speed. Does anyone have an example of reasonable vs unreasonable expectations for a senior accountant moving to industry after 2-3 years at B4 audit?
What agencies would hire management consultants? A little stifled after all these years at a Big 4 and want to be in a creative environment

What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).

I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
How much of a drag is it to come from a hard nontarget (think T100 public state school, i.e., UConn, UMaryland, SUNY, etc) even if you're at MBB? Will headhunters reach out to my profile or will I have to make a more active effort?
Should I go for a PPO plan or a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)? It seems that I can only have a Health Savings Account (the one that rolls over) if I have an HDHP but I wanted to weigh pro/cons
Will the penalty for not having health insurance still be in place for the 2018 tax year?

I will tell you that your first videos will be extremely awkward to you but keep going. There are stats out there showing video emails have more engagement than text alone. Vidyard is a cost-effective way to explore using video emails. Swing by the website and try a video response or two to your customers.

I switched to a new in house role for a health care company in February, this is the organization’s first in house role. The outside counsel they have worked with closely and is respected in the field has had a series of MAJOR misses this year and I need to deal with this, I am cognizant that I am new and younger and want to be respectful. Working on a plan for legal services going forward and any advice would be helpful. He is nearing retirement so I don’t know if that is part of it.
I am a beginner DA user and trying to gain experience. I am trying to do a project on ESG for fun, and having some difficulty coming up with a hypothesis. Want to pick your brains and see if I can get started. I have data about CO2 emisiones, electricity usage, air quality, and that’s pretty much it. Using alteryx and powerbi (to visualize results) as I don’t have any other programs. Thanks so much!
