You won’t get “flagged” which is honestly kind of amazing and very indicative of the major operational problems of holding companies as a whole. The people you interview with directly may recognize your current gig as within their structure, so it could come to light that way. To be safe, try to focus your search outside your holding company. A lot of the underlying issues that may be driving your job search could be common across the holding company agencies. Good luck!

We don't "flag" people. We just can't actively try to poach/recruit you for obvious reasons. Applying on your own is perfectly acceptable. If you want to move to another office within the same agency, that's different / you gotta talk to them internally and let them know you're interested etc

I never had any issues moving between agencies within one of the same big 4 holding companies. Did it a few times.

Current M&A tax associate, just got off the phone with a recruiter for a senior M&A position at a private company.

I don’t think I want to stay in accounting/tax long term but it feels somewhat wrong to have spent all that time on the exams just to not get licensed. Thoughts?

Hi! Does anyone know what kind of knowledge is needed to crack the Data Scientist interview at Google? I'm currently working in Marketing Analytics (primarily using SQL and a bit of pyspark). Apart from mastering SQL, I wanted to know from people working at Google what does it take to get there as a Data Scientist? (I'm very interested in Strategy Ops) I plan to another 6-8 months in preparation and upskilling myself before I even apply. Any help and guidance is appreciated! Thanks :)
