Anyone here work at Big D in either the M&A FDD group or the ARA group? I’m a year in having spent 6 months each in my firm’s FDD and accounting advisory groups. I’ve been approached by a Deloitte recruiter for either of those two groups and I’m definitely interested if it means at least a 10-15% pay bump. My main question is about the work life balance. For AAS it was pretty great, didn’t work late much and when I did it was never past 8. FDD was a bit more chaotic.

Continuing: FDD was either no work at all due to being unstaffed, regular 9-5 on most projects, or 60 hour weeks working til 2 AM with no notice. Would it be worth jumping to another big 4 for enough of a comp boost? I’m fine with my firm’s WLB for the most part but I obviously wouldn’t want to go to another firm if it’ll be worse. Additionally I could choose to stay where I am and rotate into another group at my firm like strategy or data analytics.

Does VAL have more relaxed hours?

Hi Fishes,

One more scenario when dealing with counter offer with holding offer for X.

Two company A&B gave more or less package X+3 Lakh.

Can we still negotiate with company A Or B to get top up from X+3 to make a clear decision to choose over one other.

Is this recommended approach?
how do tackle this situation?

Pour in your ideas which will help all.

Hey recruiters and professionals, I set up a coffee chat with a colleague on the FP&A team at my company for later this week. These are the topics I plan to cover: their journey to the company, challenges the team is facing/what a junior analyst would face, what skills I should be working on, and who I should be connecting with to land a role on the team. Question to the audience, what specific questions should I be asking to get a better understanding of the team/make a good first impression?


Lets have a poll. Let's see what our colleagues are going through now 😅

Dear Fishes,

Is it a good idea to switch from SAP Functional consultant role with 7 yrs of experience to SAP service delivery?

Got a role as Manager- SAP Service Delivery in AstraZeneca.

Appreciate if someone could throw some lights on the roles and responsibilities of SAP service delivery. Thanks in advance.

I have become frustrated with the profession (no discipline, labeling every student for something, students not prepared for grade level content, parents who don't really parent). Anyone with me?
