Are you working in FDD currently?

Yeah I’ve been in Audit 3 years/ FDD 2 with top 10

Cool - feel free to DM me re: EY.

EY chicago fdd: Formatting is 99% of the ballgame

That applies at most groups. The whole game is about formatting and data reconciliations.

Anyone have insight into FDD manager interview process? With/without fdd experience is it similar to senior? I would expect more emphasis on people skills and management as well as ability to manage client relationships right?

Hi I have an offer for the role of Product Manager from Sapient. Can someone provide how's the work culture there ? Also, are these roles put on bench first, and then taken in for client projects ? Also, any thing to be aware of w.r.t. the pros and cons ? Thank you.

I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics. I want to join Big4 ( as SA -DS) so I can learn what's new in the industry and see if I can contribute to white papers. Am I too naive? 🤔 I just read so many negative comments about Big4 and really got me thinking....
