How much all in can Big 4 MDs and Partners expect after 5 yrs at the level? Director at PwC at the cusp of moving to the next level. Evaluating if I should stay in consulting vs. moving to industry.
Do other big 4 have Executive Assistants? KPMG is saying they are doing what other big 4 models are using. Do the partners and MDs do their on admin work?
I don’t get the whole prestige thing. It seems like everyone is so caught up in it. Even at the most prestigious big 4 firm (Deloitte) people still seem concerned about it on this app.
Which of the big 4 have either slack or msft teams? I’m wondering if it is just kpmg that is way behind the times.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
I feel stuck and badly need a break. Stuck at 250k for quite sometime. Need a 300k job. MBA/ big 4 experience/ mostly tech implementation background. How did you do it? Any advice?
Is there a useful ranking of the top VC firms (including CVCs/corporate venture capital firms) to go by? Is there one that has a lot of consensus behind it, like the way we have MBB vs. T2 vs. B4/ACN tiers here? Looking to get a job in the space and wanna make sure I'm not joining some backwater firm.
Why do many tax lawyers end up going to Big 4 firms and act like a know-it-all - when they are actually law firm rejects??

I am planning to do masters in cybersecurity . I migrated from India where I did my under grad. 35 M working as M at Big 4 with 12 YOE and making 170k. I feel doing a masters from US will add to my knowledge and some brand value to my education space in my resume . Any good school recommendations for online masters ? Was thinking between CMU , Berkeley , Georgie tech . Would prefer something that doesn’t need GMAT, less than 100k total tution and good brand name . Thank you. !!!
Any idea if large regional firm would let me go same day if giving notice that I am moving to a small firm? Or will they have me work the two weeks? They have let others go same day, but they were going to big 4.

Just left Big 4 consulting for sales strategy at a Tier 2 tech co (LinkedIn, Salesforce, etc.). Bain reached out today, any good reason to entertain?
Congrats to all the folks who got promoted this year! Happy for everyone but still feeling a little blue.. was really hoping to make it to the next level this year. Looking for some advice.. do I slog it out for one more year in current big 4 or do I try to jump to another firm at the next level?

Do people in analytics groups (Quantum Black, Gamma, Lighthouse, etc) get access and exposure to the parent firm's training for general mgmt consultants?
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
Anybody up to practice case interviews today or tomorrow? Preparing for a few first rounds and feeling very nervous!
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?

Those with heavy bonus potential: when you buy your primary residence, do you budget/ get approved for a mortgage based on base salary or total comp? Would banks approve you for more due to having bonus cash in the bank or are they strict on considering base salary only? Sorry new to home buying, NY metro area
