Am I spelling my name right? Formatting tips appreciated. PwC OP, B.S, M.S., CPA, CFA (level 1 candidate), CMA, CFE, CISA, GOD
CMA vs CPA once going to industry? Swear to god sometimes I don’t think I’ll get past AUD so I feel like I should atleast have a professional designation to set me apart more.
Has anyone pursued a CMA? Did you find the learning to be beneficial? I have my CPA but was thinking about expanding and also going for a CMA to better set me up for a Controller/CFO position in industry
Currently in PA, but may move to industry in a few years. Spend the time to get a CPA or get a CMA?
I have CMA (lollypop degree, btw). Thinking about the CGMA but ONLY because it's AICPA. Any benefits apart from that? Is it worth the time?
Anybody study the CMA? Can I buy old cheap 2015 books and get away with it? Figure the content never changes
Is a CPA or CMA worth it? Currently in s&o consulting but feel I should get some sort of certification. Any others worth it?
Best CMA study material? Have been looking into Surgent based on what worked best for me with the CPA. I prefer lots of practice questions, a little content (books, PDFs), idc on videos.
Who has taken the CMA exam? Currently work in accounting advisory, am a CPA, and considering getting CMA. Level of difficulty and time commitment compared to CPA?
Thoughts on obtaining a CMA in addition to CPA and moving to managerial accounting after PA? Worth it?
Has anyone here taken the CFA, CMA, or any other exam after they took the CPA because they miss the rhythm of studying and achieving? And I am not downplaying the difficulty of an exam like CFA.
Passed all CPA with high 80 scores (just skilled at taking tests I think). How long do I need to pass CMA? Thinking I’ll study for 2 months after busy season and take both parts in June. Unrealistic?
What to pursue next? CMA, CA, CFA or any other licenses?Have been working in big4 for more than two years now. Passed CPA. Hesitant to take CFA as it's a 3 yr commitment and not quite related to CPA.
Any recommendations on which license to pursue after CPA? Something general that will look good/help me along the way... maybe CMA or CIA? 🤔
I have a CPA and I am thinking of getting the CMA as well. Not ready to go into industry yet but I wanted to see if someone else has gotten the CMA, CPA designations and whether it was worth it.
So I know that B4 give you a bonus for passing the CPA before or within 1 year of joining. But what if you pass more than one certification? Like besides the CPA, get the CMA, CIA etc. Multiple bonus?
Ughhh I don't want to take the CPA exam anymore, how viable (job wise) is the CMA in the workforce
What will fetch more $$: a CPA or CMA designation. I have a non accounting background with 2 years of advisory experience.
Post-MBA. Beginning to believe every year in consulting is a year wasted on low-value general skill sets rather than real industry experience Any recommendations for vet-friendly leadership rotational programs in industry?
Do you consider 175k total comp with 5 yrs of consulting experience good? I know its not great for mbb....i also dont have an mba
Is there anyone here who did a top Mba but then went back to work for two years for their original employer but then after that two years ended up exiting to either MBB or a faang type company?
Does MBB have cyber security consultants? If so, any idea how hard it would be to join from a big 4 cyber risk? Also, do you need to eventually get an MBA? Thanks much.
Speaking purely from an economical perspective, would FAANG or MBB offer more $$ coming out of an MBA program? What about after 10-15 yrs?
Which business school has the best social scene? If I'm dedicating time to get an MBA, I might as well enjoy myself.
Can someone please dm me about mba stats? I just took the gmat and I wanna see if I should retake or not
If anyone wants to study for the CFE but doesn’t want to pay the full price for the study materials and would be interested to split it, please DM me
Forensic accounting has always been an extreme interest of mine. Does anyone here work in forensics that can give some information on it? (Do you like it? Worth getting CFE? What type of work? Etc.)
Deciding whether or not to take the GMAT before I graduate. What are the pros and cons of getting an MBA? Is it worth it or does it not make a huge difference in the long run?
Any recommendations on certifications similar to CFE, but focuses on systems or data to identify fraud?
What industries is the CFE certification used for? How does it compare to CPA in the length of the material and difficulty? Do most firms pay for It?
For those who have gotten an MBA, would you have done it all over again? If so, which type of school is worth it. Vote by liking option below.
Can the group members please share their experience about the CFE exam? How many days of preparation does it require? What are some of the useful study resources?
We ran an AWESOME campaign for an in house team in ‘19. We have ZERO ability to brag about it (per confidentiality terms). Are there any awards we can enter WITHOUT naming the client?
We’re looking to fill a PM role that wears a producer hat too. Is that possible? Or should we look for producer that also acts as a PM?
I am interviewing with Morgan Stanley for a reit analyst position. Anyone got any tips or advice other than generic behavioral questions?
This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
Phoenix area Whenever I look in the Phoenix market I'm not seeing a lot around Change Management in the private sector. Is that because it's relatively new or frankly a 'nice-to-have' position?
Just got another rejection... Is exiting to FAANG or MB really this hard? Trying to go tech.. or mbb, but not getting anywhere. I have 2 masters (mba, ms) from top schools, been in consulting for over 10 years, I am confident that I know my stuff well..but still I keep getting rejected. Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!

Thinking about pursuing a part-time MBA in fall 2021. Does Big 4 or MBB do full-time recruiting for part-time students in general (I know schools have their own policies)? Has anyone been able to laterally transfer as a part-time MBA grad?
This year I left PwC for a smaller firm to see if I would enjoy tax if I had work life balance. I am still bored out of my mind and do not enjoy the work. I recently found out I was pregnant.....
Anybody have the bad habit of picking (not biting) their nails? I do it when I’m nervous or bored as a way to keep my hands busy. Any tips to stop?
