SMs who worked in big 4 in risk or reg compliance and left consulting, what were some of the exit options available to you that were not compliance related? Industry agnostic
Potential transfer from an internal finance role at B4 to ACN digital finance strategy. For background I’m a third year project controller at B4. My friend is referencing me for the consultant position at ACN. Is it worth the shot given I don’t have client facing experience? If so, any tips on how to brand myself without that experience?
Hi! Everyone, I am a PhD turned consultant with 2 years at big 4. I was wondering if there are openings at MBB that I can apply to? I am a molecular biologist by training and do life sciences consulting in the cell and gene therapy domain.
Any folks that are familiar with Wayfair Europe here? I am keen to know more about the comp, culture and growth.

Let's inject a little reality into the conversation. I'm 25. $82k salary. Net worth: -$15K But I'm working on it.
Everything equal i.e. compensation and bonus, as a big data engineer which one would you prefer and why? EY Technology or AFS.
Planning to do a PRM or FRM qual. How useful is it to move from Big 4 Risk and reg consulting to industry? Finding it hard to get anything other than non-PM roles
Highest signing bonus at senior consultant level in consulting? Curious what MBB offers?
My wife is giving birth in a few months to our first child. Should I take the full 16 weeks? Four months seems like an extremely long time. What about utilization and bonus? Getting replaced in projects and initiatives?
Why does everyone want in to MBB so badly? Higher comp, prestige, better exit opportunities and less WLB? Genuinely curious because first year person here and I don't know
Out of curiosity- are MBB and Big 4 sold out? I am hearing mixed reactions..ZS is fully sold, Deloitte is firing, Mck is more busy than ever before....what’s the word on the street
Thoughts on Oliver Wyman Digital vs Deloitte Digital, apart from the former being a major player in FS? How’s the experience been moving from B4 to OW?
Feel like there is a lot of shade on HL FDD. What am I missing? They put together an extremely strong team of former big 4 leaders and professionals and give bonuses that, while not on A&M level, blow big 4 out of water.
How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?
If I am fired, does pwc nyc have to pay you out for unused vacation and unused holiday? I’m thinking getting fired is a good option for me... can’t believe my thoughts..
What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)
Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
If I ask for remote after accepting offer from Accenture, will they agree? If they do, will they reduce package??

I had a Sheraton I’m staying in this weekend and reach out to me to say “Please note, that corporate rates are for business travel only and require proof of eligibility.” While I have no issues showing proof of eligibility, I’m on traveling for vacation. I thought we could use our rate codes for leisure travel too. Regardless I’m going to tell them I’m going for work but just curious if they spread fake news. Accenture
Hi All, Say you have an offer for Senior Test Engineer and SDET (not senior). Compensation is same. Both the companies are good. Given the narrowing boundaries between testing and dev, which position is better in the long run? I thought it'd be SDET. But, I'd like to have expert/experienced opinion.

Hi, I'm starting a new role in couple of months. My peers at the new firm have reached out asking if I have any questions before I begin the role or If i need anything? How do you build relationships in these wfh times? What questions did you ask before joining the new role? Was it more around the job responsibilities? How do you set a personal rapport going forward?Facebook
Need some insight — I’ve been talking to a guy who is pretty cool and we vibe well. It’s still early stages so nothing serious, but sometimes I can’t tell if he’s being self-centered in conversation or just trying to impress me. What are some indicators I should be looking for and is there a good way I can raise this with him? For context, he definitely expresses interest in me and my opinions, but he’s often one driving the conversations and we end up mostly talking about topics he brings up.
Need to go out of the country by End of April. Any tips on how can I get a COVID vaccine before that. In my local area, the timeline for my group starts after April 19.
