A goal of mine is to leave my PA firm (one of the big 4) this year. Currently in my fourth busy season. Do you think I should wait until getting promoted to senior and leave right after, or leave after this spring busy season? I am not super eager to get a senior position because with Covid and the inevitable learning curve, I don’t feel equipped to accept one. So I was thinking of applying for entry positions. Any advice?
Leaving for another b4, if my actual last day is beyond the 9/3 bonus pay date, but my 2 weeks notice is before (and I get walked out the same day), am I still going to get the bonus?

Just joined a Big 4 firm under the impression I would be doing XYZ work, but it turns out they misrepresented the position and the reality of the engagements available. I was straight up lied to (I did my due diligence as best I could). What should I do?
For those who went from B4 to Baker Tilly in Philadelphia or Lancaster, what are the pros and cons that you noticed? Specifically curious about hours, clients/teams and resources.

Recently started B4 accounting advisory - my projects keep getting delayed or cancelled and for the last few months I’ve only worked about two weeks. My next engagement just got cancelled and now I’m seriously worried about my utilization and about getting fired after just starting. My counselor was aware of my situation but didn’t mention too much about it and I’ve been reaching out + letting people know I’m available this whole time. Don’t know what else to do and how concerned I should be
To the big 4 folks. How bad does you portfolio suffer since you can’t hold securities for companies your firm audits?
Anyone here works for IRS Seattle office? Looking to get out of B4. Currently a manager in investment tax. CPA, no law degree. Would like to get a general idea of how to approach the application process. Nothing seems to be open currently.
First job out of college so pardon my ignorance.. but are other jobs as high stakes as B4? Like the whole tier rating system, metrics tracking, snapshots.. I’m
Attempting to lateral between Big 4's to switch practice lines. Not sure how to explain why I don't just stay at my current firm and work with the group that does the type of work I'd like to do - truth is I briefly worked with them and loved the work but couldn't stand working with the team members at all. Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.
Which of the big 4 + ACN pay the most for SAP?
Where do more boutique firms (like Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Huron, zs, slalom) rank in comparison to big 4 or Accenture or ibm? I know mbb is top tier but I feel like everyone else is debatable
Joined a big 4 late in my career at 35 as a SA. On track to make M next year. Would making Partner even be possible or worth it with the mandatory retirement age?

All these recent posts on cheating and lack of sex/ spark in long term relationships and marriages has really got me shook (perhaps I need a break from FB). As someone who was cheated on in a past relationship it has taken me a long time to realize that “not all men cheat,” and I’m still working through it. The last few days on here have been a major setback so much so that I even shared this with my SO (who had been hurt by my previous mindset that you can’t ever 100% trust anyone).
