Are exit opps from Big 4 vs MM like A&M, HL, Duff, ect (so not non-Big 4 accounting firms) going to be the same? Seems like MM firms pay a premium so if you can get to the same places may as well take the money

Just saw a Corp Dev Manager posting today that said 7+ years of Big 4 FDD or equivalent.
Personally, I find it hard to imagine they would genuinely exclude anyone who practices outside of those four firms. But, I could def be wrong, too

Dang I’d hope more - 7 years in FDD makes you SM1 or SM2

I think some companies prefer it, but i don’t think it will be a dealbreaker. I don’t think id choose a big 4 over mm for only this piece. The work at the end of the day is substantially the same.

I think inherently Corp dev for industry are larger companies (therefore larger acquisitions) and prefer big 4. However, port co Corp dev or industry with smaller roll up strategy will consider MM
