Hello everyone, I have an upcoming case study with one of the big 4 for a M&A generalist position at manager level. Does anyone have any guidance based on: "Nothing particular to prep, we will share an information memorandum with you and you and you will be given a number of questions. We will ask you to read that for an hour in your own time and then present answers to the questions for 30 minutes to myself and another director. The questions will be a mix of qualitative and quantitative."
I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
Received an offer for 50% base increase at non-faang tech in product but the role is not set up to succeed. I’m leaning toward turning it down to find something where I can succeed, but the title and $ are great for the next move. WWYD?

Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
Are exit interviews ever effective in any way? They are asking me for one but what is the point? They didn’t change before, they are not going to change now.
Confused between Deloitte USI and Cognizant YOE: 3.4 Current role: Consultant/Lead BA CTC: 10.85 fixed +1.6 var Deloitte's offer: 14 fixed +10% var + 1.5 JB Role: Healthcare Consultant/BA Cognizant's offer: 18 fixed +1 var Same role Haven't yet talked to Deloitte about counter offer, curious how much will they counter this with.

I am interviewing for a new role and often get asked about a few clients/projects that I did not manage or work on in a day to day capacity. As the department head I gave my team a lot of autonomy to lead their projects, and outside of weekly check ins, I only got involved during RFP stage and when issues came up. I knew in broad strokes what they were working on but wasn’t approving deliverables. So when interviewers ask about these sexy projects we did, I am usually very honest ... (cont)
Does Big4 truly lead to better exit opps at the manager level than the next 5 or 6 ‘mid tier’ firms?
I made it to two MBB final rounds but no offer. Feedback was that I didn’t do anything wrong or make any mistakes, but just didn’t stand out enough. Currently at a tech company in a PM role / was at a T2 consulting firm. Feeling like I’m starting to question my intelligence. Has anyone else been in this position?

How to ask a startup to share their books with you. Being courted for Manager of S&O role, but don't want to be walking into a sinking ship.
Hi there! I have a remote, freelance, part time position for a project manager at one of our brands - this is at least a 3 month gig with the option for it to go much longer term if there’s interest on both sides. Between 20-25 hrs a week, great for a parent or someone that wants to re-enter the workforce. To apply:
Roth or Trad 401K? $210K in yearly household income + 10% bonus (just wife and I, both 32y.o.). Take home pay is about $140K - includes 401K contributions and health benefits. Can't decide if Roth makes sense as I don't anticipate our retirement income will exceed current spending levels. I get the appeal of tax free withdrawals but at the expense of paying more up front. Any advice?

I owe so much to this bowl! I'm finally putting in my 2 weeks notice and leaving for a whopping over 70% increase in TC!! Current TC: $87k (most likely would increase to $92k if I get bonus and promo next month) Offer TC: ~$150k+ ($110k base, $20k+ bonus, $20k rsu) YOE: 1 year Trust me, don't give up. I fell into severe depression ever since I started my consulting analyst career out of college, saw 5 therapists, gained 10 lbs, and broke relationships. I'd love to give back to you all here!
