Would it be possible for one to make a switch from Big 4 public sector strategy to public sector OCM at Korn Ferry? OCM has always been incidental to my work but not an explicit part of it. As I’ve risen, I’ve found it more interesting, and curious about a firm that focuses on it. Have heard good things about KF. Also I wouldn’t mind a slower pace.

Also my impression of KF is that it’s quite busy

I wish it were that simple. I have TRIED for a few years now to get to OCM but no one ever wants to take a chance without a massive comp reduction.

I've worked with KF as a vendor for a number of things, and I like the people there a lot. Don't know much about their quality of life, culture, etc. though.

I used to work there. I would go there. Come here, we have a robust practice... however we have a hiring freeze...

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

I’ve done really well in my 2 years with my current big 4 firm and am coming up for promotion in July. I am sitting on an offer with a step up in title and 40% pay increase.

Received an offer from a smaller consulting firm helping build out a new practice with the same work I am doing now. It is a $20k pay raise however I do really enjoy who I work with and really have no reason to leave besides money. I’m afraid to switch and not like it and be miserable but it is an offer that’s very hard to say no too and everyone I interviewed with was great and came from other big 4’s. I’m still very early on in my career.. two years out of college. Any thoughts and opinions?
