Seeking advice on how to choose between a mid tier technical accounting advisory offer and Big 4 audit. Worked in audit at a local firm and wanted a bigger platform. Would love to switch to advisory to be more well rounded. Mid tier advisory offers higher salary but also thinking big 4 has a better platform and maybe better exit opportunities in the long run? Insights please.
Does EY provide MBA tuition reimbursement? If so is it a specific department, division, etc. or throughout the organization and how much?
Just got invited to take the internal revenue agent assessment for an IRS revenue agent position I applied for, does anyone have any insight as to what to expect?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Growth or stability? I declined an interesting job offer because it required to move to another city and leave behind the “stability” that my family enjoys now. But I kind of regret. Age plays a role
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
What’s the company culture like at Coca-Cola? Do you see many people get laid off ? I’m thinking of applying for a software engineer position.
Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates. Usually the client contact is a hiring manager for the position. How do I show interest without completely shooting myself in the foot? While I ultimately do want to exit the firm, I also don’t want to be openly broadcasting my intent to leave by telling the firm attorney(s) that I’m interested. Thoughts?
Any advice for explaining the risks of a situation without management thinking I’m weak or not being aggressively fighting for their position?

Has anyone here left for Accel-KKR in an operating role? What does your day to day look like? How is the work do you different from your consulting work?
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Are there some things or types of work you all did at your firm that might help with MBA admissions? Beyond the actual “work”? Thanks!
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Had an interview on Friday. Interviewer said that they would get back to me sometime this week with a decision. Haven’t heard back yet. Should I email them or wait?
I’m definitely not the only one with sentiment for this statement: 2020 was a year of loss. Our design team was reduced by 75%; when I signed on there were 20 designers and now there are 3! Is anyone else trying to rebuild? What frameworks/tactics will you try? What will you let go of that may have worked in a pre-COVID world? What does selling design look like in 2021?
Looking for good behavioral and case interview prep resources. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome. Thank you!

500k at 31 which is great but I still feel like I’ll never be able to afford a house in my area (~1M). My money is pretty much 50% 401k 50% investments.
30 y.o. M here, just changed my 401k allocation from a target retirement fund to 85% S&P500 and 15% international index funds. Anyone think this is stupid? Thoughts appreciated!
Oh thank goodness you confiscated my Tom's toothpaste, TSA. I was planning on whitening someone to death on my flight later.
