Honest question: Why are you wanting to bring that skillset to PWC or the Big4 rather than other consulting firms that are more focused on technical work? Are you wanting to pivot to IT or cyber governance or audit automation and artifact collection?

@M1 I definitely agree that Deloitte has a strong cloud presence as well. Not here to badmouth any firm, from what I understand D does more (not all) GRC, risk, analytics, architecture, and product management type engagements rather than hands on cloud engineering and coding work. Am I wrong in that?

SC1 & G1 are giving good advice if you are in tech consulting because you like consulting or you are trying to pivot/grow into something specific. Jumping to another firm can give you different clients, opportunities, a pay bump, wlb, etc. If you are the type that is more technically focused, after this jump you’re probably going to be a top paid C or SC and start hitting diminishing returns in terms of pay growth as a technical Individual Contributor. The long game in consulting is trending towards you leading and/or selling projects in your area of expertise. If that’s what you’re after, go for it and try to do it at the place that values you and most closely aligns with your personality and goals. I mention this because your current skills could very well land you a better paying job as an individual contributor in tech/industry, so you might also consider interviewing for those types of roles. The runway is much longer as an IC when you are contributing directly to a product rather than just another person who can be billed at $x/hour.

Serious question. I started developing symptoms of covid last Friday. This included fatigue which worsened last Saturday. The next couple of days it got better but I started to develop cold symptoms such as runny nose, phlegm, and nasal congestion around Tuesday. I finally tested on Wednesday and came out positive. It’s been over a week since my first symptom, but I’m not sure when to test again to see if I am positive.
