Depends, what kind of work are you doing in “finance transformation”? Is it more financial accounting related? Capital budgeting?

So you’re doing potentially an ERP implementation of one of the big players and you’re probably installing SAP or Oracle and getting the client off whatever they were doing before. So the finance “transformation” here is changing the way they do accounting in the system. Does this sound right?

How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
