Expected signing/relocation bonus for experienced associate moving from Chicago to NY for a big 4?
Anyone here have experience boomeranging back to their original b4 firm within a year of leaving for a diff b4? Does this look bad on a resume?
Do you think it’s reasonable to decline a job offer right now to another B4 due to market conditions and the pandemic?
Saw a thread around the time rd 1 decisions were coming out that b4 applicants were getting absolutely slaughtered. Did that trend continue in rd2 for you all?
Has anyone gone from Big 4 to a small no name accounting firm? Are you happy you made the move? Are the decreased hours worth the drop off in resources, client prestige, and technology?
Thinking about leaving Big 4 Tax to join Andersen Tax. Has anyone made the same move? Would you recommend?
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
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
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

For folks that went from MBB/T2 into Big 4, why did you make that switch and did you get a boost in title that you would not have reached at MBB/T2.
EY is by no means perfect but the way they are handling the virus situation so far is admirable. The situation will continue to evolve and change things but hats off to the best Big 4 👏🏽
Any opinions on Armanino? I have an offer from Armanino and other big 4's. Risk advisory and assurance. What I like about the team at armanino is that its very small and I might get more exposure. Not sure about the culture and progression and pay
