I work at a Tier 2 strategy house. Whenever headhunters contact me, it is either for another tier 2, a boutique, or occasionally a tier 1, but never a big 4. Anyone else experience this? Why?
Deloitte is the only company of the big 4 to have a true management consulting shop. The others have advisory shops that they call consulting to be Kool. #BigD
I am considering switching jobs from Citi Tech Risk to BIG 4 Risk Advisory. What are your thoughts?
What’s the day to day like in audit at a big 4?
Any insights on Protiviti’s data and analytics space? and also on so called ‘WLB’? 9years in analytics in Big 4 and looking to switch if that helps.
What the typical Sign On Bonus amount Big 4 companies offer ? Would be great if you can share the SOBs got? $, level?
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
A question for Big 4 peeps - if you know the salary range in the group you wanna go for is 150k to 170k, how much should you say when the HR asks you how much you want? Is 180k too much to start with? (Didn’t want to start with 170k since they will only come back with lower I assume)
Help! I’m from a general strategy consulting background (big 4) and have some experience in large scale transformations as well. I know joining tech companies seems to be a good move right now, but I’d like to understand, what are the best types of roles that ex consultants could seamlessly move to? I heard Product Managers, Product Owners, Program Managers, but are there any others? I want to exit for sure but I don’t want to make a short term decision I regret.
Any partners who switched from B4 to MBB, if so what was your experience and how was the transition? Would you do it again?
Looking to make move to Big 4... Anyone have salary for experienced manager at Big 4? What are hours like? Responsibilities?
Align to non-M&A offering but do a lot of work in the space (DD, integrations). B4 recruiter reached out and wants me to provide resume for review with hiring partner in M&A space. Does it work if I provide a bio with summary of M&A projects (client names removed) instead of a traditional resume? Also plan to list education and past experience but primary focus on recent M&A work
Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
What’s the worst career advice you’ve gotten?
Any new fathers irritated or rubbed the wrong way about all the programs/benefits/focus on working mothers and very little (if any) on working dads?
Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.
Average IMD Associate1 bonus?
I have some shoulder pain and it’s affected my ability to workout for a while. That is starting to affect my work, health, etc. Any suggestions for a good way to exercise w/pain like this? Cont.
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
For Enterprise level orgs in software space, who are your executive search or retained agency partners you would recommend?
I've been an EA for about a decade - I've worked at Start Ups, Post-IPO companies, and Venture Capital Firms. If you are a rockstar EA and looking for a place where people are genuine and kind, I would urge you to apply at Snapchat. Going to Snapchat was the best move I ever made. They REALLY prioritize their employees, and the benefits are absolutely incredible. I hear a lot about toxic EA cultures at *certain* other companies and Snap just does not do that. (Be warned: it's a FAST pace.)
Does anyone pass the merchant/credit card fees to their clients when the client pays online?
Has anyone gotten an experience letter from the firm? I am in the process of applying for Canadian PR, was wondering if there is some template or I should it come from my manager in writing?

What are project manager roles at FAANG like? Is the work exciting? Is comp similar to other positions. Thank you in advance for your insights.
Anyone else struggling with post-COVID fatigue and problems concentrating? My doctors mainly said to wait and take it easy. Anything else that worked for you guys?
I have been unhappy about my current job for a bit now, been at the company for almost 10 years, and have started looking for a new job. I have a solid job offer on the table, but a newer PE group just reached out and are looking for a high level either VP or Director of retail sales (my specialty). I am more interested in this private equity group as I would get to build a whole team and really make a retail strategy but they are newer so I am unsure the stability. Thoughts on working for a PE?
