Match the Big 4 to the Teletubbies and state your reasoning! Looking forward to this!! (Inspired by D2, House Stark GoT matching)
What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
Did anyone make the switch from one b4 to another? Did you successfully transition/assimilate into the new b4? To those that did, do you recommend it? Any downside?
Is Big 4 still recruiting experienced hires in consulting? I don’t think D is but what about Pwc, EY, Kpmg?
Does anyone have experience at alvarez and marsal. If so, what is the culture like? Is it very different from a B4?
I left big 4 and jumped to ultra small boutique in UK about 3 years ago. Org design/ Op model type of work. How do I make the move to tech? (Apple, google, Spotify etc.)
Hi fishes :) Need some suggestions from the PWC peeps. My directorial round with PWC is scheduled for tomorrow. Any suggestions please? What are the probable questions will be?

Shall I consider pwc as It's a part of BIG 4 and other facilities and brand-value or capegemini/Cerner india (the pay scale will be higher most probably) Thanks in advance.

Is a Senior Manager at IBM comparable to a Senior Manager at B4/ MBB, in terms of responsibility, expertise, etc?
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
Has anyone looked at the CFA qualification? Currently a 2nd year Senior in audit at B4. Looking to pivot away from accounting and more into finance. Don't want to pay $$$ for MBA
How does the new rule impact on amendment? Big 4 has promotion typically every year and which require amendments. Do you think this will effect current H1 holder?

Want to make my next career move in product design and was eyeing Capital One .. does anybody know how much Capital One Canada pays their entry level product designers? I’ve heard mixed signals in regards to their compensation structure … would love to hear about work culture as well.
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.

Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.
Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
