If you are a new analyst, TAKE A ROLE IF ONE IS OFFERED TO YOU. the bench is deep, it’s the end of they year, and a potential recession is on the horizon.

I see so many veterans with MBAs coming in at ~80k analyst roles like the undergrads. MBA should typically get you 6 figures upon graduation+higher role. Wondering if applying to MBA is even worth it?

I am currently a tax analyst for a mid size firm. I have been offered a senior analyst position at a big 4 firm with a $20,000 increase in pay. This big 4 office seems stable throughout the crisis...mine doesn’t seem 100% stable. I only want to stay in public practice for 1 more year until I get my cpa. What should I do?

As a new audit manager, is it a good career path to leave for a senior financial analyst role at a large Fortune 500 company? Salary is about 10% more. Or should I keep on looking for a accounting manager job?

With how challenging things are right now I constantly feel hopeless and stressed. Never had this much internal dialogue around anxiety before. I get stuck in my own negative thoughts. A lot. At first I didn’t think it was anything but now it’s been months, I’m starting to think it’s some sort of condition. I’m afraid it might be imposter syndrome. For those 🐠 that has gone thru something similar before, could you share your experience finding care and therapy? Any tips and advice?

Own a townhouse currently, but venturing into investment property for the first time. Are condos a good idea in Jersey city, Hoboken area? Targeting the ones without the horrendous HOA obviously. Also hearing from the realtor that the play has to be that you say it’s your 2nd home to use on weekends or something like that so you don’t end up with higher down or high interest rates that are associated with a typical investment prop from lender standpoint. Curious to know how this works.
