Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?

BCG/McK will pay the most. In most cases though, the SWE/DS are level with generalists. KPMG tends to pay our DS close to highest compared to other groups in the company but still nothing compared to MBB

I would agree relative to tech but I thought quantum black pays the same as generalists

How to prepare interview when you jump out of public accounting? I’m an audit manager now and would like to prepare for interviews in general (thinking about FR/FPA/Technical accounting) but don’t really know what to prepare. Big 4 has those behavior questions that you kinda know what stories to tell. Is it the same with industry? Can you share a bit what you did that was successful?

Brutal honesty needed. My daughter is entering PA this month (Big 4). She is beautiful in a more sensual, overt way (although not unprofessional).

Being a woman was hard enough, but being an attractive woman I felt like I had a target on my back 24/7. Curious to hear all perspectives, positive or negative.

Associate Consultant here with 2 years of experience (industry & consulting), undergrad in Engineering, no masters degree (yet). Currently at a Tier 2 firm that do not sponsor H-1B visas for internationals, despite the good work I’m doing for the firm I need to find another employer. I’m aware that MBB sponsors H-1B at all levels, but big 4 do not sponsor entry-level positions. Do you know any other consulting firms that offer sponsorship? Also, do you consider having a master degree is a must?

Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
