Have a few friends at A&M. I was actually looking between TAS and A&M restructuring and came to EY. Culture their was pretty intense and it’s eat what you kill, so you can make some serious cash but also get kinda screwed. I liked EYs culture way more, though I prefer to be a little more laid back

Wow. Culture there*

Thanks, EY1! That’s very helpful. I’m also curious about their mix of engagements. The work seems to be more due diligence and PE focused.

It really appeared tied to partner. When I was going through the process - and from what friends have said - it seemed like partners held on to people depending on the service line, I’m def not an expert in the firm though so if we have any A&M 🐠 swimming through, they can probably answer better! I’ll say, if you want to make a jump to restructuring, they do have a strong brand among the investment firms.

I am currently a fund accountant and am thinking about jumping ship to a new firm. I’m at a small fund and although the culture and WLB are great, I can see that there is no opening for assistant controller coming any time soon. Is it a bad if I consider looking elsewhere when I’ve only been there for a year? I hear it’s a strong market for candidates so I don’t want to miss out on a potential better opportunity for my career. Greatly appreciate any input.
