Have spent years building my career and moved to Canada 2 yrs back. Have changed my job once already to join big 4 but i am not happy at all, work is very demanding, people seems to be leaving all the time, managing clients and expectations and on top of that working with a couple very rude people….. i have spent a decade in taxes but never felt such burn out and intolerance for rude people… not sure if i am not suitable for job in Canada or just having really bad time for last few months.
Why do people always try to knock the prestige of the big 4? Sure some people may not think that we are prestigious but judging by our rates, our clients sure do.
Does B4 still pay out your 2 week notice if you’re told not to come back for the 2 weeks? I’m giving my notice but have a week of paid personal days and a week of training for the 2 weeks of notice
Any Product Managers / Product Manager-adjacent people in canberra, working on operations modelling, business improvement? What companies other than the big 4 for this, in topics that are more in the engineering space than the ICT space?
Has anyone switched from Big 4 to product companies ? Any advice ? How long does it take? I am looking for data engineer or data analyst track. Does big 4 experience matter?
Is cover letter read or preferred for the major firms? 🤔 (I.e. McKinsey, Big 4, LEK, etc)
Could you talk about the main differences between Big 4 and a firm like CohnReznick? Appreciate your time.
Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
I have offers from all the big 4s. Which is the best big 4 to join among Deloitte India, KGS, PwC sdc, EY GDS?

International tax manager with 7 years experience all at KPMG. Thinking about switching to industry to see it from a new perspective and do similar work from a different angle. How do you successfully transfer B4 skills/experience to industry (how do you find the right fit?), and how do you continue to learn and build your skills so that you’re still marketable and could boomerang back if it doesn’t work out in a few years? Am I asking too much?
How to become a partner at big 4? Do you need to make equity contributions? How much would that be? Purely out of curiosity.

This has been my first job, whats the interview process like switching to another big 4 firm as an experienced hire? Human capital centered case studies?
I’m a S3 making 89k in a MCOL and I’m a CPA. Basically guaranteed a manager promo in a few months, and have a ~30k promo bonus I’d receive at the same time. If I were considering jumping to another big 4/mid size, what % or $$ increase would seem reasonable/realistic ? Kinda unhappy with my current salary, so I’m trying to gain some perspective since I haven’t started looking yet and not sure if it would even be worth it.
Any folks know what the avg pay band is for Manager level HR/D&I recruiters at B4 firms?
Are there staff/seniors/managers here that are looking to leave B4 and go to smaller/midsize public accounting firms? Or does everyone generally want to leave for industry?
Mistakes are the learned lessons to a better career. But every time I have made a mistake, it seems like it is the end of the world. I want to hear stories...of a time where you made a mistake and your superiors did not freak out, but used it as a lesson for you. does that exist anywhere?
How many points? Was watching TV when I found this friend on my bed at Hyatt Residence Club Sedona.
Are any of you CDs that were promoted to GCDs at small to mid-size agencies where the creative department is not technically divided into groups? If so, what added responsibilities were assigned to you with the promotion? I don’t work at a large agency with the traditional pyramid structure of a GCD having multiple CDs on specific accounts reporting to him/her. I work on 14 accounts.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
What is the typical salary for a newly promoted Manager with S& and what is the average time taken to reach Sr. manager?
Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.

Desi folks (male specifically) - how have you dealt with marital issues? It’s unfortunate but men are not known to show emotions. Me and my wife have had so many issues. I also can’t initiate a divorce due to a child in our marriage. I feel like mentally I’m not in a good place and really lost on what to do. I’m constantly depressed, have contemplated suicide and just overall not in a good place but I’m keeping this all to myself and not talking to anyone
Anyone works in industry - do you mind doing mindless work for the rest of your life and getting zero to very little raise each year?
Quick poll. If you work remote, does your company reimburse internet? Mine has reimbursed it for years, and took it away this year. Seems like a weird move to do that now, so just curious about other's experience.

Renters/homeowners/earthquake insurance ?: I’m reviewing my renewal policy docs for my renters and earthquake policies (im in Los Angeles). I’m 32F 🐠 single no kids. I own enough stuff to fill a 2 bedroom apartment if one room were an office/misc storage stuff. Currently am in a 4bd/4bath town house with 2 roommates. I’ve had these policies for 10+ years but truthfully haven’t read or paid much attention to limits or terms in the past (I also didn’t own much for most of that time).
