re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
[quote]What my friends are paid is not the right comparison set. The comp set is what others in the same field are being paid. I think consulting / advisory is where the compensation issues exist. The B4 sets the market for audit and tax and if one of them is out of line then people will just switch...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
[quote]So how did you guys feel about working for the big 4? Did you feel like they paid you appropriately? [/quote] Most will probably tell you no they weren't paid appropriately; however, if they were being honest with themselves most probably are paid appropriately. When I consider my age an...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
[quote]How do they treat compensation? If someone got a sizeable raise leaving for industry (this is normal) and then comes back to the consulting firm (presumably in the same title) does the firm give an additional comp bump? [/quote] Obviously, I wouldn't know anything "officially". However, ...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
7 and a half years in. Still cranking away. Trust me if you want to return to your firm you can easily return (at least from what I've seen in advisory). I've seen so many leave and boomerang a year (sometimes less) later. As long as you didn't leave like a jerk they will welcome you back w...

re: Big 4 Consulting - MStant1
[quote]Consulting at the Big 4 is limited due to their audit practices. Consulting projects for audit clients can create conflicts of interest, or the appearance of conflicts. You might want to consider one of the consulting businesses that were spun off from the big accounting firms (there used to ...

re: Big 4 Consulting - MStant1
If you are interested in true blue management/strategy consulting, then Big 4 isn't the place. McKinsey, Bain, Deloitte Consulting (not advisory), BCG are what you want. The best way to get into one of those places is to go to a top 10 MBA program. Engineering consulting is out of my wheelhouse,...

re: Big 4 Consulting - MStant1
[quote]What advice would you give a young person trying to break into consulting at one of the Big 4 (Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, EY)?[/quote] Depends on what you are defining as "consulting". The only one of the Big 4 that still has a distinct "consulting" arm is Deloitte. The rest have what they call ...

re: does your company still offer a pension? - MStant1
Mine does; however if you're not an executive, then it's relatively small. The real pension starts for the executives. Rumor is that Non-equity executives get something on average in the realm of 150k per year in retirement. Equity partners get something on average in the realm of 500k per year. ...

re: My two cents on CLM - MStant1
[quote]We always hear that CLM is the greatest HC for LSU of All-Time and I agree. However, we don't have a great coaching history. Before Saban came in 2000 we were very average all the way back into the 80s when Charles McClendon was running things. So it is easy to look at our recent history and ...

re: Why does Jesse Palmer wear his suits so tight? - MStant1
That said I do think that Jesse has a tendency to over tailor - which is the unfortunate trend at the moment. Jesse could afford to have everything taken out by a quarter of an inch and it would probably be just fine. I do agree with others in the sentiment that he dresses way better than the others...

re: EY Office Visit - MStant1
[quote] Definitely depends on service line and city. Audit in houston you are basically a lock. Advisory/consulting in Dallas its a toss up. Basically more people want to live in Dallas and there is less work. Not familiar with NYC though in terms of offers etc.[/quote] Good point. I'm thinking t...

re: EY Office Visit - MStant1
[quote]I don't work for EY so no advice there. But you have to do something pretty stupid to not get an offer after an office visit with any of the big 4[/quote] Very common misconception, and it is also very wrong. I've seen plenty of smart kids not get offers after an office visit. ...

re: EY Office Visit - MStant1
[quote]It's not FSO, although I didn't rule it out as an option in the interview. It's for an RAP internship, so general advisory I assume. Are you still doing FSO? Oil and gas?[/quote] I'm still doing FSO. I work in our Regulatory Compliance group with Anti-money laundering and sanctions (to a...
