What is the typical percentage difference in consulting salaries between the Big 4 and firms like RSM, BDO, and GT? Specifically in the DC Area
For non-Big 4 people (RSM, GT, etc), did your pre-employment background check reveal any pending charges for gross misdemeanors?
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
How likely are you to get a job you interview for? At B4 they basically gave us offers if we had a pulse, what are the odds for industry jobs?
Currently working for big 4 firm and have a desire to transfer to MBB due to learning/pay/camaraderie. Due to competitiveness, can I hear from people at boutique who like the culture and experiences?
Are the big 4 the only consulting companies that requires work papers after each engagement? Seems like an audit thing.
Joined a FDD group month ago with a smaller firm,clients are small. Revenue 1m above. Was thinking of getting the experience first then go FDD big 4? I'm ex big4 tax senior.
Has anyone heard anything about the full time MBA program at UF? I simply want a respectable degree to work in industry in Florida after b4 tech consulting - appreciate any insight

Big 4 🐠 - how were promotion raises like this year compared to ‘normal’ years at your firm?
Has anyone made a switch from B4 to professional services at a software company? Why you made the move? Lessons learned. Thanks.
Why as an A2 in big 4 audit I feel I don’t know anything still. Is this normal? How do you go on to get promoted to senior if you still don’t know anything?
If you are not a partner, do any of the Big 4 have a mandatory retirement age? I have a friend who is working in industry and has been approached by a few firms as he has a very desirable technical skill set. He is in his 50's and doesn't want to make a move unless there is some runway to keep working. He basically could work as long as he wants where he is at. The pay increase would be significant for him to jump to but if he is mandatorily forced out in a few years it might not be worth it.
How to get the attention of my boss for a promotion when he's working from a different state and I'm in NYC? All communications are through skype, phone etc.

By when are PwC CRT promotion results out?
Received an offer with a T2 consulting firm out of their London office and would love some help in evaluating if it is competitive (I have 2 YOE in consulting and am moving from the U.S. so I am unfamiliar with Europe salaries). The offer is an Associate position (typically requires 4+ YOE at this firm), for £70k with £7.5k signing bonus. Year end bonus bracket unspecified. Thoughts?
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
