re: Big 4 Accounting Firms - Anybody with experience? - MStant1
Yeah I didn’t want to come right out and say that the pay is low as I obviously have no point of reference to your current pay. That said pay can also vary quite drastically in traditional advisory depending on the industry or practice - particularly at the Manager and Senior Manager levels. ...

re: Big 4 Accounting Firms - Anybody with experience? - MStant1
[quote]This is true. Most move to a regional/divisional controller role at a corporation. With that said, because of the high turnover, if you can stick it out, partner track is VERY short compared to other industries.[/quote] This is only partially true for Audit, and not remotely true for advis...

[quote] Still cranking it out at EY? I think I recall you being in the financial services advisory practice a couple years ago. I got out almost 4 years ago and can’t say I miss it. I landed in a terrific exit role that took a lot of luck to work out.[/quote] Yup still here and in FS advisory o...

re: Big 4 Accounting Firms - Anybody with experience? - MStant1
Ahhh SDC is going to be a different model than typical advisory. SDC is generally more of an outsource type model, than really typical advisory or consulting. If PWC’s SDC is like EY’s, then your hours will be closer to 40, and you are unlikely to travel (if ever). Work life balance will be high,...

re: Big 4 Accounting Firms - Anybody with experience? - MStant1
[quote]Advice taken. Thank you. That’s my next step. I saw in researching that all of the big 4 have hired tens of thousands, most upwards of 50k in the last year. That doesn’t jive with organic revenue growth so my assumption is a good bit of that is due to turnover. Maybe that turnover is somewhat...

Advisory Senior Manager at EY here. I travel nearly 100% of the year and I have a two year old and wife at home. Be prepared to have the conversation with your wife about a significant change in lifestyle if you were used to being home for dinner most nights. Even if you don’t travel, longer hours a...

re: Anybody watched the Trump documentary series on Netflix? - MStant1
I’m not a liberal (although I’m definitely not a Trump fan) and I make more than 38K a year although you are right I’m not a billionaire. Trump made some bold business moves in the 70’s-80’s followed by ridiculous decisions throughout the 90’s and 00’s. I’m just asking the Trump fans to be honest...

re: Anybody watched the Trump documentary series on Netflix? - MStant1
Honest question do you really believe Trump to be a business genius? Not sure why you’re trashing Netflix other than just hating facts regarding Trump’s business record. ...

re: Why do so many fat ugly preachers have fine wives - MStant1
I love how so many in this thread think the average preacher has money. Most preachers Have pretty modest means, and many have to work a separate job in addition to the church to support their family....

re: My problem with the Trump wall: it's solving an imaginary problem - MStant1
Logic has no business on this board. Additionally, why is no one talking about the fact that most illegals who do come are not crossing by foot? What good is a wall if that is not where people are entering? I mean I get it if we admit that the wall is largely just symbolic, but it's a a super expens...

re: How many suits do you need at a job where you wear a suit everyday? - MStant1
Consultants who work in the financial services sector have to wear suits a lot - particularly as they progress within their company. At the Senior Manager/Director level and above, the expectation to wear a suit increases (at least until you get so senior no one is probably going to tell you anythin...

re: Why does 80s pop culture still have such resonance? - MStant1
Lol Internet and Smart phones are two of the most revolutionary technologies in almost all of humanity. I think you underestimate the impact both have had and would have on someone traveling back in time - particularly if you are taking an average teenage 2018 version of Marty Mcfly. Hell in 88 most...

[quote]Just take look at how incredibly different everything popular was from say 1987-1995...it was 2 different worlds. Now look at 2010 vs today (the same amount of time passage) and its like the trends haven't changed at all. [/quote] I think some of this perspective is influenced by the p...
