Looking to get in to Cyber Security sales. What are some of the good companies to work for? I’ve come to realize that I am not super technical, but I do like to sell, and have great communication skills. Having worked for big 4 in cyber for 5 years has taught me a lot, and would like to take risk getting into sales, and hopefully make a good return. Please help. Thank you!
Best time to move from Audit into B4 FDD? Recently started as an A1 but looking to make the move within a year or so hopefully
Wanted to get thoughts on if there was a service line in the Big 4 world that has a work/life balance that doesn't exceed 45 hours of work per week? Or is that blasphemy?
Deloitte is giving mid-year hikes. Is this also happening at other consulting firms, big 4? EY PWC KPMG Accenture
Consulting work life balance is simply taking a toll on me! Is it true that industry jobs have more work life balance than a big 4 consulting? I like my work but I am working for long crazy hours and also over the weekends (pay isn’t justified at the same time)
How do I become an MBB employee? Is it possible to gain experience at big 4+ACN and then get referred in??
Is there really much difference between any of the big 4 or even top 10 or so firms? Been at PwC for 3.5 years and considering moving on, no idea what but is there any point transferring Cross firms?
I'm getting a good amount of phone screens (guessing big 4 + CPA is getting me past the resume screen), but after that I'm honestly stuck. How do I frame risk assurance in a way that makes me valuable for financial analysis type roles? I have no experience with financial modeling, for example. I feel like I can BS about how I understand business processes, but then when it comes to technical knowledge I lean on "I'm a CPA" since the work experience sucks. Controls work is not very transferable.
Would appreciate advice for next career steps. Currently in Risk&Reg advisory and looking to switch to Strategy consulting (at PwC/Big 4). From what I've read, the transition seems unlikely because of little work overlap and the preference for top MBAs. It seems like the most realistic ways forward are 1) Get MBA first then request to transfer groups, or 2) Leave the firm for Strategy experience elsewhere and get back into Big 4 eventually. Has anyone made a similar move into Strategy?
sooo.... supposed to start with 1 firm next week but got offer from another B4 for a LOS that I prefer. How do I tell first firm that I'm not coming...?
For non-Big 4 people (RSM, GT, etc), did your pre-employment background check reveal any pending charges for gross misdemeanors?
Both roles are within the big 4. Which service line has better exit ops? Consulting or audit?
With Google employees unionizing, makes you wonder if other professional service employees could follow. What are the chances something similar happens at Big 4?
Have you ever had your offer rescinded for negotiating salary? Was it with with a B4 firm?
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?
Do B4 firms drugs test for exp hires?
Trying to chart my next move and not sure what direction to go. All I know is I’m tired of being always “on” in a client-facing environment. Any podcasts, books, etc I can read for insight into more internal roles like biz ops, corporate dev/strategy, other?? 4 YOE total all in consulting. Currently a SC. Clients/work have been commercial healthcare implementation & public health strategy, risk, process imp etc.

What did/does your first 100 days as a startup entrepreneur look like? What are your best practices and lessons learnt, anything we can all take heed of? Welcoming the input of Founder/ Co founder/ CEO/CFO/COO/CTO? And just mention where you’re based, perhaps that could give us a cultural angle as well...

Our expense reporting system is so bad that you need a separate charge code for the time spent entering expenses
I'm sorry to hear the news about layoffs. If you haven't been affected, I hope it stays that way. Otherwise, good luck on your exit process and job hunt fellas. It's not an easy job.
Taking on my first freelance side hustle project, and it’s pretty big. Now I’m stressing logistics. Start an LLC? Filing taxes? Do I need a separate bank account? I’d appreciate any tips/resources!

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
As an ADC applying this summer for 2022 start, I haven’t gotten a chance to connect with any L.E.K.
