Tomorrow will be my first day at Boston Consulting Group and I really look forward to it. I’ve always wanted to break into data science + consulting, and still vividly remember how disappointed I was when Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company both rejected me in first/final rounds 2 years ago (Bain & Company didn’t even care to interview me😊). At the end of the day it’s just a job, but I just want to encourage everyone: stick to your goals,do the hard work and it will pay off

Are there better exit options as a senior from litigation to in house?

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?
Anyone work in industry (e.g. in financial reporting role) and decide to go to accounting advisory afterwards?
