What kind of signing bonuses are the big 4 offering for new FDD joiners? I heard 15k at the senior level
After almost 2 years of job hunting, I finally put in my 2 week notice!!! I thank this bowl for answering my questions (whether good or bad) and helping me understand (and cope with) the loooong job hunt. As I know I’ll be asked in comments: moving into S&O/internal consulting (non-tech industry), 3 YOE, campus hire from progressive masters (non-biz/tech degree), HCOL (7% paycut but great benefits/bonus/WLB), reasons for leaving ACN: skills atrophy and no professional growth support from mgmt
Is there a bowl for all things MBB (people wanting to transition there, currently interviewing, compensation, etc)?
Can I leverage an offer from Deloitte for 20% higher than my salary here at at EY or is even attempting to leverage a bad move?
Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?
I’ve been with ACN for 3 years now and want to start job hunting to see what’s on the market. Any tips for the interviews? (best presenting myself, salary questions etc) Haven’t done any in the past 3 years; forgot how it felt like..

Recently relocated to a new city (MCOL) from HCOL, got a big salary bump, was thinking about saving money and got a really cheap studio. But I hate the place so far for 1) I can hear noise for everything 2) The place is too small 3) emotional depressed for living in such a small place. Should I pay 1.5X rent to get out here and get a nice place?

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?
What would you all say is the sweet spot at which to exit consulting? Is it at the manager level?

After traditional investment banking, I can safely say banking is better than consulting in regards to prestige, income, and sophistication of work. While consulting has better hours, nicer culture.
Hey y'all! I just accepted an offer with Microsoft in the FRP. Does anyone have any recommendations for progressing within the company and making the most of the opportunity? I've heard a lot of stories of how crazy the salary can get so I'm definitely interested in hearing about various experiences! Potentially pivoting into consulting/product management. I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!
