Front office is where it’s at but it still depends. We don’t know anything about either of the jobs.

RBC is a solid tier or two lower than Morgan Stanley, so if your friend is conscious of prestige he should take that into account

A1 - do you think that factor would affect b school apps or future consultancy hiring?

It’s 100% possible, but difficult to judge b school possibilities without knowing the full applicant profile and more specifically what they do at Morgan Stanley. I would bet that more Morgan Stanley people go to top tier business schools/consulting companies than RBC

Spent 10y in Big 4 mainly in US and Europe. Interviewing for Associate Partner position with an MBB in SE Asia. Would a ~5y stint in the region be an asset if I wanted to return back to US but remain with the hiring firm? Or is it a rabbit hole?

Do i tell business schools that i was on a call center project? It was a leadership opportunity as i progressed to a team lead and lead some training initiatives, but it sounds derogatory to mention that i managed a call center while my counterparts reshaped a company’s supply chain system to increase efficiency or something you know? Would it hold me back?

If you're a client who is on top of your stuff and actually sends the support your auditors need, we will love you. I will listen to how you're doing, how you're dog's doing, what's stressing you out, and be very friendly in all my emails and acknowledge your hard work. And when we send out opinion, I will genuinely thank you and say I'm looking forward to next year. Anyone else have some clients that are just amazing to work with?

Anyone been in a situation where you know you’re getting laid off and you resign first? Is there any chance the firm does not accept your resignation and decides to lay you off instead? I’m debating how late to push my resignation to maximize my income, but don’t want to be laid off first bc the company that hired me could see that in my background check. Any and all advice/former experiences welcome.
