I am applying for an MBA program and have only worked in audit at B4. How did you go about asking for letters of rec? I'm scared to ask my manager because she will then know I'm quitting. (Cont.)
Working at a B4 and trying to get a return offer in a different group from the one I’m interning with. I’ve been networking crazy, but the recruiter says she has to see if my profile matches first. How can I take matters into my own hands to pivot?
Made a handy guide based on my experience dating Big 4 on and off of 🐠bowl. You’re welcome ladies 💁🏻♀️
After a year in big 4 and being beyond miserable and unhappy with my client and the firm, I have a great opportunity with CLA thanks to a sr mgr there. Thoughts on dipping for CLA?
Any advice for applying for a new position while currently in one? (Esp. being in one of the big 4 holding co where talent portal will flag you applying for positions)
Is a switch from IT Audit (b4) to Product Management (industry) role a good move? C1. Significant pay bump as well.
Only absurd responses. The big 4 assemble in a parking lot. It’s a fight to the death. Who places where and why?
3rd year MD in talks for P next year. Rose through the firm young and quick, so feel relative base comp low at $325K. $5-$6M in sales every year for last 3-4. Stay and take P or move to another B4 and get a bump? Under 40 / NY FS / Advisory. Thanks!
Lateral move from Big 4 strategy entry level to smaller PE firm consulting branch working with portfolio companies. Would require moving within the same state, comp is about the same. Is this move worth it?
I need career advice. I left B4 a few weeks ago for a seemingly perfect consulting position but it is not at all what it seemed. Was expecting analytical role with the great managers I interviewed with, but as it turns out I’ve been placed on a brand new team with a micromanager and my job duties are to take notes during client meetings. Help! Do I reach back out to recruiters? I miss excel
Has anyone found a non demanding but rewarding position in accounting or finance that pays well? Yet allows you to have flexibility with kids events and outside of work activities?? Maybe I’m dreaming thinking this is an option lol I want to start a family but don’t think this is feasible with the amount of hours I currently work. My husband is a manager working in big 4 so he can’t help around much during busy season
Have a new opportunity. Promotion. Way more $. Another big 4. Remind me that it’s ok to leave my team. I do love them, not all but most. But I feel like I need to do this for me. Ugh sucks so badly.
Next week is the 1st week on my project (it's an 8 hr flight). I have a big family event on Wednesday night that I want to take 1 day PTO for. Would it be unreasonable to ask to work remote 1st wk?
Where can I find the most accurate pto balance at PwC? Me@pwc has a different number that myMetrics. Not sure what the most accurate count is.
Looking at exiting into a startup working in defense, does anybody know about Anduril’s culture/wlb?
Hi friends. In the happiest 5 year relationship ever. Then suddenly my boyfriend breaks and held my prior anxiety and panic attacks against me. He yelled at me in a way I’ve never experienced. He’s always been so comforting to me (and I have been to him when he’s upset). I know he’s close to proposing. I’m lying here in bed wondering if this relationship can be salvaged after what was said. I don’t feel like he can accept me when my mental health is struggling. How do I move past it?
Real estate lawyers: is title insurance a scam? Why don't we adopt IA's system of issuing title opinions instead?
I know everyone has worked on “burn and churn” accounts but when did you know it was time to leave/ how did you leave? Backstory: since the get go we have had a long sprints, a terrible account manager, and a cd who won’t support us or advocate for us. We are burnt out but when we raise our hand we just get yelled at and told everyone is dealing with this. How do we escape?
I’m just starting in a consulting role out of undergrad but want to keep my computer science skills up should I decide to exit to a technical role. Does anyone have recommendations on how to do so?
Evaluating whether to take up an Investment Strategy role with a unicorn wealth-tech firm. Does this pigeon-hole me into wealth-tech? Are there paths from Investment Strategy to other fin tech or investing or Corporate strategy roles?
I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
Android 🐠 - recs on the best smart watch (time, activity tracker, and checking texts, etc)? Bonus if it looks sleek. I know the Apple watch is the best but buying a gift for an Android loyalist.
