Helllllllllllllll no.

Yes ! You can likely come back to MBB or back to big 4 with a better salary. Assuming you will be doing some quality work at FAANG

Only if your a direct contractor, which is very unlikely. or else you won’t list FAANG as your last employer

Of course you should. 1) you have a strong path to get into Big Tech. Else, strong potential for exit opps 2) Big 4 will always be around (especially now that you have experience at one). Boomeranging still exists

Should value stability right now.

Would not risk a contracting position right now

Any tips for prepping on a move to a new role? Starting new role at Accenture (tech delivery), coming from industry, no idea what to expect. I mostly worked on smaller scale projects, a lot of them internal. I have a month, so can do some prep work (courses, network, books, etc) to not be fully lost. Don't know where to start (client work, all the new technologies used, multiple industries, pure size of the organisation). Also, should I add any of my interviewers on LinkedIn? Is that normal?

Serious question: how difficult is it to get straight up fired from big 4? Outside the layoffs last year, I have personally never seen anyone let go for any reason.

Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers.

Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
