Has anyone on here at EY or another Big 4 ever asked a Partner for a letter of recommendation to MBA or PhD school? If so, what was your experience?
Need advice on an offer. PgM @ NYC. L3. Base 131K ; Equity 177K ; Bonus 15%; TC 209K Context: Tech Consultant with 4 YoE @ B4. Is it fair? Am I being low balled and down leveled too far?
Leaving my position @ Big 4. I want to list some of my engagements on my LI profile, and get some recs from clients who liked me. Thoughts on posting client names or refs?
I have 1.5yoe doing cloud security assessments and I want to leave b4 for Microsoft. Has anyone here been successful doing so?
Are there any ppl here who have lost 70+ pounds? I know there are countless other places to find ppl but I feel like everyone in big 4 is fit and slim. I’d love to hear how you tackled your weight.
PwC wtf is this sharing rooms at PwC University? Why do I work for a Big 4 if we can't even afford to have our rooms at a mandatory training? Anyone that's done PU what's the deal?
Is it true that Accenture doesn’t track utilization and doesn’t have any firm initiatives? Are B4 the only firms that ask you to do PRDs, firm initiatives and track utilization?
Applying to Wharton, CBS, NYU, MIT Round 1, wondering what else I should add based on my stats: 750 (48Q, 44V, 5IR - is this a flag?) 3.7 GPA in accounting T50 4 YOE at matriculation at Big 4 Audit with good innovation/leadership highlights. Founded club and other ECs from college, recent advisory board positions but don’t have much to list from them yet. Target is consulting.
So PwC announced effective May 1 they are dropping the vaccine requirement to got to office or events. Obviously we follow client guidelines for their locations. Have any of the other Big 4 changed their guidance?
Tax people. How many hours are you pushing? I feel like I won big 4 lottery with my 40 hour weeks. #KPMG
Any suggestions on what to do next after about 3 yrs big 4 audit, 2 yrs industry accounting, CPA
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
I’m a BME that initially wanted to go to med school but decided that my interests were more in the healthcare strategy world (unfortunately super late as it was senior year in feb when recruiting cycles were either closing or closed). Ended up taking a b4 tech consulting role as it was one of the few offers I got and also because it’s some type of consulting role. I was just wondering how I should position myself so I can exit into a more strategy focused role preferably in HC after 1-2 yoe.
Should I do Tax Technology or Risk Advisory at a Big 4? Or audit or tax? Which path is good to go through?
What is the difference (besides higher bill rates) between MBB “implementation” (McKI, Platinion, etc) and standard B4, oft-derided implementation (staff aug, PMO, etc)?
I was given a consulting offer with former B4 partners and directors 17% pay increase, great 401k etc. Is worth taking or stick out another busy season
If B4 partners threw down like the news stations in anchorman, who would win? And what weapons would they use?
Been in IT risk for 4 years (1.5 yrs big 4). Currently at $115k (Minneapolis market). I’ve gotten a verbal offer to go to a boutique firm as a change consultant. Any ideas on salary expectations?

Does the way you dress really matter as an analyst? I understand looking clean and well rested, but it’s not like the client is looking at you as the company spokesmodel! Thoughts?
