Has anyone left for a local firm and bounced back to top 10/big 4 or top 10? I've been interested in working at a local firm for some time, have an opportunity, but want the opportunity to get back to something larger if I learn I hate it.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
Hey Big 4/ PA fish, when you write financial statements and footnotes for a company (technical accounting work), do you use PDF or word?
Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
Is it possible to get ‘general audit experience’ and attest hours from an industry job? I am trying to finish the experience requirement for both my CISA and CPA outside of B4
Sorry but what do the Art Directors on this app do. I always thought this app was for Big 4 and consulting firms folks.
What is the typical length in time from starting the conversation to receiving an offer when transferring from one big 4 to another?
Anyone at b4 merge your phone number to the company issued cell phone? Do they get to keep your number if you leave? I’ve had the same phone number my entire life and don’t want to lose it…not that I ever plan on leaving.
Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
Any parents work on the financial due diligence team at a B4? Interested in seeing how the hours are and if I can make it work with kids.
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)
Anyone familiar with Splunk? I’m having an exploratory convo with a recruiter tmrw but curious about the wlb@and pay as it compares to b4 consulting. TIA!
So, do B4 typically ghost candidates they are not interested in or do they generally let them know they weren’t selected?
Working as a manager in a big 4 in SF isn't enough. Having to pick up driving for Lyft on the weekends, against firm policy of having outside employment.
How would you feel about a 4.5% increase when going from staff to senior? What is average for a non big 4 firm?
How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
I’m a second year staff planning on relocating to NYC. Is it best for me to wait until I make senior or is 2 years of B4 experience enough for me to find a PA job in NYC? All CPA parts are passed but
I have a lead on a great paying Sr Business Affairs role. Can do fully remote. DM for details.

What do you do when you are told to resign or get a non-renewal? Is it worth getting your Union involved?
As a immigrant woman from middle class family, all my life, I felt the need to comprise everything, that I always get the third/fourth best choice because of money. My parents shamed me when I get anything good since I was a kid. So even now even I can afford some good things, I never get myself anything good, and I felt bad about it but still very penny pinching.
How do you think we should help and encourage non union workers even the ones not in education?
What kind of consulting do post mba consultants do at EY since Parthenon is blended in now? And what’s a good reason for switching from Deloitte to EY for post mba? TIA
Question for those who know the exit process at Deloitte: If you leave Deloitte (put in your two weeks) do they just pay you for your already earned unused PTO or do they ask you to take it instead of working your last two weeks?

Anyone renegotiate their base when interviewing? If so, but what percentage did you gain? How did you frame the conversation?
Just transferred firms and I feel like a failure. I have no idea what’s going on in the project, feel like no one likes me, and I’m not doing a good job. I feel like just going back to my old firm.
