My friend has accepted the offer letter for a big 4 But doesn’t want to join for multiple reasons. What should be her next steps? Suggestions?
I'm at EY in the FSO Tax service line and I am hating it, should I switch service lines or go to a different Big 4 firm? If so, which firm has been the best as for as work life balance.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Would you move from D to other Big 4 with only 20k raise (115 -> 135k)? Assuming you need to restart GC process from scratch a year after joining
Thoughts on leaving audit right now for transaction due diligence at another Big 4 firm in NYC?
Got an offer to move to another B4 strategy practice with a title & pay bump (15%). However, most of the work is in an industry I hated working in (financial services). Is it worth making the jump for a year if the ultimate goal is FAANG?
What kind of workspace do you have in Big 4 Consulting? From A to SA to M to D to MD/P? Do you have an office?
If I got offered a position at a big 4 firm for indirect tax. What do you think the appropriate counter offer would be? Do you think they would accept my counter?
Can I apply for the same department my wife works in? Or would that be conflict of interest? She works for a big 4
Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.
If you are working industry, 40 hours a week with a competitive pay and left B4 tax - can you share your new job title? Not sure what is out there that I could apply for. The b4 life is not for me and is actually affecting my family (mom of 2 kiddos). I’m looking into something with true flexibility and less than 50 hours a week. Any advice?
Any one from Big 4 working in supply chain practice? Need some inputs on the career path
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

With the possibility of schools closing, does anyone have a recommendation for a classroom alternative? Either on-line, or a good home schooling program?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.

Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.
