4 months in at a B4 deals group. Not enjoying the work my particular group does and eyeing a jump to T2. Do I try now while the job market is hot or wait until around the 1 year mark?
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.
Are there any Big 4 or middle market firms that have national tax/policy (WNTS, NTS, etc.) practices that won’t work you to death?
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
If I don't get fired before the Xmas party I'm safe right? Like they won't fire me after the Xmas party unless I do something else. I figure they would've fired me b4 the party if they were going to
Thoughts on internal audit at big 4?
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
I am considering switching jobs from Citi Tech Risk to BIG 4 Risk Advisory. What are your thoughts?
Does every consulting firm have such restricting personal investing policies? Does Independence and other restriction apply just at Big 4 or is this common everywhere ?
If I make Partner at a Big 4 in M&A tax how much would I make first few years and how long till I touch $1m ?
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm

I have a H1B visa that has been renewed once already. However in the designated period of 6 years I have been in the US for only around 2. Does that mean I can renew my H1B visa or reapply fresh?...
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd

4PQE. UK. Have been offered a job at another firm but they've only agreed to match my salary. I went back asking for more and have been sternly told that's not possible as I'm already being offered more than what their bandings allow. The new firm seems like it would be better for the sector I'm specialising in but anyone else I hear that moves tends to get a considerable payrise! I feel reluctant to move if I'm not getting a big pay jump... Is moving for the same pay a done thing?
Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!

Happy Sunday everyone! How does an experienced professional break into consulting? I’m genuinely interested in the profession, see myself in it long-term, and have a great resume (reviewed by a partner at MBB), but getting an interview has been impossible. Anyone’s willing to have a coffee chat and help this desperate soul? It’d be much appreciated!
