I’m a second year staff planning on relocating to NYC. Is it best for me to wait until I make senior or is 2 years of B4 experience enough for me to find a PA job in NYC? All CPA parts are passed but
Are there industry jobs (PE, HF, etc.) where I would still work similarly as hard as B4, but get paid commensurately? e.g. instead of a standard 9-5 industry getting 100k, 9-7 industry getting 120k
Do those from MBB and BB banks have best shot at B School? I rarely hear about T2s and Big 4 getting into m7
Mid size vs big 4 - which one to choose and why? Pay/work is same, no exit ops in either.
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?

Question for first-generation Blacks with immigrant parents. Do your parents or other family who was born in the home country consider you whatever nationality they are? Do they allow you to embrace the culture? Or do they remind you in different ways that no you are not Nigerian, Ghanaian, Jamaican etc but you are American? I've seen this with my own family and my other first gen Black friends often get this from their family too, so just wondering if this is a thing across the diaspora
Any Accenture execs out there? I'm wondering about your views on the culture at ACN at the exec level. Got a query from a recruiter recently and I am curious.

People who made the transition from big 4 to gov, or ppl who got poached by clients, whats your experience?
My first cross team interaction was with contractors. I felt like ZS is similar to any other IT company keeping the culture in mind. After a few days, I have had a chance to talk with ZSers and I must say you guys are one of the best people I have interacted with in my career. So empathetic and helpful. Cheer guys. How can we inculcate the same behaviour in contractors?
Hi 👋🏻 I’m new here! For people working in big 4 risk assurance, how many clients do you generally juggle at a time and how many hours do you typically work in a week? I just started a few months ago in an IA role for a company after working in external audit. I like the work, but it’s just not a great culture fit and I’m thinking of boomeranging back to public but for IA to get more of that experience.
Can anyone speak to culture and lifestyle in the VC/EM groups at WSGR and Perkins Coie? Considering a lateral move as a junior. Very unhappy at my firm but I do have it good hours-wise by biglaw standards doing lender-side finance.. nervous about going to a total sweatshop.
Looking for some insight on Accenture Interactive culture. Have had no luck researching online and this bowl.
Hey Big 4/ PA fish, when you write financial statements and footnotes for a company (technical accounting work), do you use PDF or word?
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)

How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise.

How best to do this without burning bridges?
