Hi all! I’m an MBA Candidate with 3.5 years on H1B. What consulting firms are still hiring internationals among MBB and Big 4?
ATL opportunities (e.g., big 4, maybe MBB)? 3.5 years experience in public sector consulting in dc with 2 promotions!
How many years of modeling experience in the big 4 will lateral to Associate level investment banking and will the pay be different from a post-MBA first year associate?
Would experience in big 4 FDD make one a competitive candidate for FP&A or other roles in a FAANG several years down the line?
Hello cyber team! Can anyone help suggesting sys integrator/implementation firms that are focussed primarily on cloud and devsecops? Also do they match big 4 salaries to some extent? Tia!
Currently a first year staff in Risk Advisory in a Mid-Tier Firm hoping to move to Big 4 for either Risk or Cyber. When would be the most appropriate time to make the change? I heard that Senior Staff in mid-tier would most likely be hired as an “Experienced Hire” in Big 4. So would it be smarter to make the move now as a first year staff since I’ll be considered Experienced Hire anyway?
Should I switch b4 firms for a 15% pay bump?
I feel like the deloitte name brand intimidates me the most out of the b4. Idk why it seems unapproachable
When should I consider switching firms? High performer at big 4 for a year and a half with only a 2% raise and nothing really feeling like I’m rewarded for the long hours/weekends and holiday hours I put in. Wasn’t thinking about leaving until I had some talks with a couple partners about going for promotion and one of them revealed that there were thoughts I was planning to leave the firm. Don’t know if I should stay somewhere with partners thinking that I already have a foot out the door
What consulting firms have Talent Management generalist consulting positions? I know the Big 4 firms have generalist models but none of them are known for TM specifically imo.
Curious what Admissions would think about a gap in work experience? I would love to leave b4 and spend full time studying for GMAT/ searching for a new job w better wlb. Insight/input much appreciated.
How many big 4 people are done busy season right now for audit? Started getting asked to work 80 hour weeks which is why I didn't go big 4. Thinking about switching if it stays this way.
I love working in the big 4. Forget the hours and focus on the amazing opportunity. I wasn't born in anything close to middle class. I will never take this opportunity for granted.
Thinking about making a switch from Audit Big 4 to I-Banking. What have you heard? How do I make this happen? Anything I can do now to make the transition easier?
Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
Waiting for the day B4 firms start setting realistic yearly growth goals so we can actually meet those numbers.
Exited to industry and thinking about boomeranging back into consulting. For those of you that did come back, was it awkward at all during the interview process or to re-integrate back?
Are there any consulting firms (specifically customer experience/transformation) that have said they won’t require travel/100% on-site office work post COVID?
I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process. My position has way more job security than others simply because I work for a CPG client. Those in the same role on other accounts (e.g. airlines, hotels, fitness) have been furloughed or even laid off just because of the nature of the industry their client is in. Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?
How does FDD healthcare compare to other industries? I have an offer to join a healthcare group at B4 and not sure if it is too limiting?
No masks and social distancing? I will continue to take precautions even though am vaccinated.
Does anyone have to work tomorrow (not given Friday off for the holiday? Or is their company giving Monday off instead? Or no holiday at all?
Had a recruiter that said they’d reach out by a certain day on if I made it to the next round of interviews but I haven’t heard from them yet. Should I keep following up orrrr take that as a no?
Question for Equity Partners: how much does the amount of billable hours you work yourself factor into your compensation? I learned that it’s a pretty significant factor at my firm which is part of what I think holds our firm back from healthy growth because Partners are too much in the weeds on their clients.
I keep seeing those LinkedIn polls about how many people want to work from home permanently, and it makes me kinda sad. I know a lot of people really prefer working from home, but as a junior who only started working after the pandemic began, it feels so strange to not have an agency to go to. I know all my coworkers faces only from seeing them on Zoom, and only in the context of work-related conversations. I hope I’ll actually get the chance to experience normal agency culture.
Does anybody have recommendations for an immigration lawyer specializing in US and Canada dual work authorization/process? Thanks in advance!
Anyone hiring post audio, sound designers, or composers? I know a very talented person looking for a junior role.
I understand Delta is giving flight credit for all canceled flights right now. But does anyone know the time horizon? can I cancel 30 min before my flight?
I recently changed jobs and my new 401K provider - Principal has very limited MF investment options. My prior employer’s 401K was managed by Fidelity and provided me access to a range of MF options. I believe that the fund options are negotiated by the employer and provider? Two questions. First - I have not rolled over my previous 401K to the new one. Would there be any problems. Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?

Any CLT 🐠? Looking to make a move there. Have kids/married so not looking to live downtown. Any recommendations on areas to live within 30 minute of airport?
FCB just gave unlimited PTO?
I accepted a huge promotional offer to a manager role in industry. So I am leaving big4 as a senior. My background check just came through and somehow they have my big4 salary listed, even though I’m 99% sure I checked the box they couldn’t contact my employer. Could the company take back my offer for something lower?
