Who the hell is Aon?

I'd have to say PwC is in a tier above the rest. Not sure if you guys know this, but PwC acquired a (once upon a time) prestigious firm called Booz and Co. They have another couple of months before everyone leaves and they are back to the normal tier.

But most of us at ACN can spell too.

Lol I like how Deloitte thinks their S&O practices prestige is big enough to carry along the rest of their firm above everyone else. More than have of the Big D consulting is tech too, and that means more than have of y'all are below ACN

Lol Big Four is an accounting term first off. I'd argue that it's Deloitte, ACN, PWC in one tier. KPMG and EY below them and then AON (depending on the practice) falls behind them

Lol Accenture is not on the same tier as deloitte. Maybe in tech, but certainly not overall.

@A1 Oh really? I didn't know big 4 referred to just accounting! Phew

@Accenture 1, I don't know anybody that considers Accenture part of the big 4...

Not hating on ACN at all and they are an awesome firm. Big 4 does not include them but that's just a reference group, doesn't diminish them.

Yeah, referring to my old post, it's not a knock on ACN. It's just that the big 4 term is used for accounting firms. So idk why anyone would say ACN is part of the big 4.

Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, EY, and Accenture... Who are the big 4?

Lol

From a financial performance perspective ACN is #3.

It's big 4 audit firms. Why would ACN call themselves a big 4 firm??

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?

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

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.

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).
