2nd year audit staff here. If I want to exit audit to go into a Sr. Financial Analyst role or industry accounting role, should I start applying right after my senior promotion? I really don’t want to do a year of audit as a senior.

Just start applying right after promo (unless you're at PwC, in which case start applying as an A3). If you aren't getting traction, then get a year of senior under your belt and try again.

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

Consultant vs specialist track - I’m considering jumping to the specialist track since I enjoy the technical work much more. However, it seems like it’s perceived as a step back. But what are the tangible differences? Lower pay and benefits? I’ve asked my cc but she doesn’t seem to have much to offer. Also, is the culture different? ….I really dislike working with hyper competitive people, most in consulting are great to work with, but there seems to be a solid 30% that are bad humans

Unpopular opinion: I don’t think Simone Biles should step down from competing because she took the spot on the team from other qualified individuals who would kill to compete. There - I said it. Before you come for me, I respect her mental health and understand why she is not competing, but at the end of the day she took a spot from someone who had been training and would kill to represent the US at the Olympics. I get the pressure is on, but step down before to let someone else take your place
