I had never even heard of a PhD in Tax. 🤯 Apparently they exist (just googled it).

A whole PHD?

I can’t imagine doing that to myself. And I have a Masters in Tax. Were I in DC and looking to get some skills, I’d go to law school or a think tank or try to get a job as a staffer for a congressman on a budget committee. But that’s me. The more years that go by, the more I have to explain that tax law is written by politicians who don’t understand basic accounting.

Any university would let you do it if you can get in and find a supervisor who knows the area. I did mine at a business school that happened to have a prof who was a tax geek.

Interesting why a PhD in tax? I’m considering a PhD in accounting and then doing something around ASC 740 since I’m in tax. What would your focus be in your program?

I was an MBA intern and FT hire at Deloitte. Been here 3 years, been at M for the last year. I have seen others leave at this point in their careers and go direct to SM/director roles in industry, but as I start applying for jobs and have convos with recruiters, I have had more than one say that I’m light on YOE and that for that reason alone I am either not considered for a SM role or unlikely to have my salary expectations met. How can I combat/preempt this? Others clearly have.

Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?

Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
