Has any of the other b4 opened there office in any US city? Wondering what it’s like and what the other firms are planning for when they reopen? Any set date for reopening?
Hey folks— no one has ever really been able to give me a succinct answer here and I can’t find much when I search. But B4 Advisory vs. their consulting practices? Differences in pay, projects?
Scenario: You leave Big 4 & move across the country. Chose between 2 offers: industry job at huge corporation and step-up role at a small firm. 5 months into your industry job you are miserable (cont)
Does anyone have insight on an audit associate trying to jump into Big 4 FDD? Currently working for regional firm, 2/4 cpa parts passed and roughly 2 yr exp. Trying to figure out if it would be doable to apply now given the current market? Any advice on this would be much appreciated!
Big 4 Manager with 4.5 YOE (first job out of college) and have a start up opp now that I might take. Not that it’s very important but if I was to apply after 2 years of start up experience now, would that be better received vs. staying at the Big 4 vs. recruiting at MBB as a Consultant (hypothetically)?
Is an associate title from an investment bank (MS/GS) to Senior Consultant at big 4 considered a title promotion? Or are those about the same?
How is EY FSO doing? What about the digital strategy team there? Compared to other big 4 strategy and Accenture Strategy?
I am a new grad with Cyber degree, looking into CrossCountry Consulting Dc to start my career, would love to get everyone’s thoughts. Will it be good idea to start in B4 then something like this or ?
Has anyone here used Personal Capital’s managed services; how’s your experience? Sounds like a good option for B4 peeps who are interested in passive investing (and rebalancing) and for whom robo advisors like wealthfront and betterment are not allowed. And this sounded like a more flexible and personalized portfolio approach compared to the robo advisors. Any comments on their portfolio approach and the 0.89% fee?
How are bonuses awarded in the Big 4? Profit sharing? Performance based? Are they annual? What kind of percentage of salary is typical?
Is a switch from IT Audit (b4) to Product Management (industry) role a good move? C1. Significant pay bump as well.
Trying to decide between two B4 consulting offers in a smaller city. One has a fairly large office, and the other is quite small (~30 consultants, maybe 100-150 staff in total). Apart from that they seem similar so I'm struggling to decide. Any particular pros and cons to think about?
I had a discussion with HR of one of the companies in April, but role was paused coz of Covid. Currently in final rounds with a Big 4. Would be reaching out to that HR again... should I mention about being in the final round while asking if the position is open again ?
Wow PwC, sure you know where to share your expertise on the riots. Even during channel surfing, can't escape B4 influence.
Senior manager levels@B4
I know at Deloitte and Pwc, SM has levels like sm1, sm2, sm3. Does Accenture have the same thing?
Would you be moving jobs in this environment (specific to Canada I guess). Im a SC that is up for M this year at a B4 but I've been interviewing with a boutique who has given me an offer...cont
Normally would be annoyed by the gay FA flirting with me, but since He hung up my jacket and moved me to an exit row while I'm in coach, I'll accept the flattery
I always feel out of the loop. Not sure if the Senior Manager is just as clueless as I am or hiding things and not telling the team about any updates, We always find out things through the grapevine😰

Get put on a great project. Excited. Think to myself: what if I fail? I make little mistakes reading/writing. Decide I might have brain cancer. Still freaking out about it 3 months l8tr. #whyamiso
As a deployment lead I’m supposed to also convey concerns from the end users over to the project team - tips on handling a super user that has outrageous requests and asks for updates constantly?

Anyone else see coworkers getting awesome exists and think “how will I ever get the technical skills to get to that?” Feel like everyone has a masters in engineering/CS and I am already behind
How many of you are still in Consulting because you don’t know what else to do? I have absolutely no idea what type of exit I would want, so I’m sticking around until I figure that out I guess.
Bi guy here, recently out of closet and still figuring things out. How do you find irl LGBT friends to talk to? Sometimes I just need a peer that gets what I’m going through.
Being given a PE ops role which would put me on a 6 year track to partner vs 3 year track if I stay in consulting. Pros/Cons of taking this role?
All’s fair in love and war. 🤔
Advice needed. BF of 3 years has delayed getting engaged until the very last minute of his suggested timeline twice now. I’m feeling no longer comfortable living together as a live in girlfriend with no clarity (been living together almost 2 years). Am I the asshole for wanting to move out? I want to get some space and feel like I can’t focus on myself at all as this live in girlfriend with so much anxiety and uncertainty about our relationship future. It’s also making me feel really ...

As a British citizen, if I’ve recently moved from the UK but still have my all my savings there, what should I be doing or considering with my money?
Does tonight's debate even matter?
Just so we are clear. These people think that it is anti American to protest police killings of minorities , sexism and racism. But it is patriotic to storm the Capitol Hill and reject a democratic election while waving the American flag
