Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card.

Please comment.
Hi all - I am looking to move into the world of brand strategy consulting (KPMG has customer consulting division but brand and marketing aren't that strong. Also KPMG UK is the only one of big 4 that has not bought an agency!!). Wanted to hear some advice on the options: go to a boutique (like Lippincott, Prophet) or brand agency? The salary cut for agency is huge though. Are there other options?
Anyone know recruiting companies in NY that work with people from Big 4 Advisory, regardless of service line?
Would you leave a big 4 to go to smaller company? This is in consulting. At current company on partner track but could be 5-7 years and at smaller company ($1b rev) it would be 1-2 years. Partner comp is similar (top Partner obviously make alot more at big4). 75% raise. Lobe my current company and team. Nervous company is too small and staff may be lesser skilled. Would you move? Nothing is guaranteed of course on Partner track. Would you only leave if it's Partner role not just MD?
After starting my new job last week I still think about the fact that no one from PwC wished me luck. As soon as I put in my notice I didn’t hear from a single person. I wish I didn’t give them 9 years of my life.

How do you keep your endurance up while interviewing at multiple places? I went from hearing nothing for months to having 4-8 interviews a week. It’s a great problem to have, even if it’s been different kinds of draining when applying for jobs vs. prepping for and going through interviews.

Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa?

Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
