I passed my CPA exams, waiting for my license now, will take about 4-5 months. Should I look for a new job now or wait for my license, aiming for B4 audit senior.
I work at a Tier 2 strategy house. Whenever headhunters contact me, it is either for another tier 2, a boutique, or occasionally a tier 1, but never a big 4. Anyone else experience this? Why?
Does anyone know anything about the real estate advisory practices within the big 4? Which are the best firms for it, cities, ect.
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Looking to make move to Big 4... Anyone have salary for experienced manager at Big 4? What are hours like? Responsibilities?
Thoughts on internal audit at big 4?
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?
How much total comp raise would you need to go to another big 4, equally reputable in the space. They claim that they will reduce your travel from 80% to 25%, which is a big plus for me.
Guys I know this question has been asked before, but just want to hear some thoughts on this. Is it worth it to go from one big 4 company (EY) to another (Deloitte) for consulting? The major factor is pay increase. The major down side is loss of people network. Thoughts?
How’s the consulting work life balance at Big 4 in Europe Do folks work more than 45 hours through the week and is it normal to have to work on weekends?
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
What are some good child care options for single parents? Have a toddler that is in preschool, but need to think about child care after school. Currently have my parents helping out with the child care, but they are not a long-term solution. Don’t know what my options are… especially when I have to travel in the future. Thinking about au pair as it seems like a cost effective solution, but wondering what other options are?
I’m looking for a Spanish speaking auditor for a Fortune 500 company. Awesome international travel if anyone is interested.... TIA!
Peeps, what happened if when you got married to a citizen while in the process of getting work green card? Does the company make you return the fee they pay for the application?
Anyone here from Chicago Deloitte HC? Any thoughts on culture, project type, etc. would be much appreciated.
Have an interview for the S&O analyst with the Scaled Revenue Programs team. Any insights will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Several staffing firms have reached out for positions. Not familiar with how they work. If you accept a position, are you an employee of the client or the staffing firm? They also asked for my desired hourly rate 🤔
DHG had comp discussions this week. Thoughts on your outcome? I’ve heard mixed thoughts. List your Geo group, level, % raise, and bonus
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Partner told us to be careful about sharing our salaries with each other. Says we may find out someone’s getting paid more than us but we don’t know what their production is like. I officially spat out my kool-aid.
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
Anyone is sick of agencies laying off good people when pieces of crap are keeping their jobs as managers ?
While filling out the i944 form to go along with AOS application, how do include checking account information? Should i include average monthly balance or total monthly deposit? I'm thinking deposits as it should help with the tie out to salary, paystub etc.
I blasted someone on Facebook. For posting the same dumb memes about covid19. Honestly, when we have so many new yorkers dying, it’s getting old.
