Pneumonics all the way

There aren’t exactly pneumonics for these cost accounting and financial formulas. Just straight memorizing unfortunately.

Been with a big 4 consulting for less than a month, but I just received an investment banking analyst offer at a small boutique investment bank of less than 10 people. I like the idea of working at a huge company, but I also have wanted to do IB after graduating. Base salaries are the same but the bonuses at the boutique could double my base salary. If I take the offer I'm giving up the chance to have a brand name on my resume after college, but I'd get IB experience. Thoughts?

Hi all! I am currently an engineer working in the water/wastewater treatment and environmental remediation sector but I've been interested in pivoting to sustainability for a while. I've looked into McK/BCG and to a lesser extent Big 4. Unfortunately, I got rejected by BCG before R1 and McK doesn't seem to be hiring at the associate level yet (in the expert track). Wanted to ask if anyone had any thoughts on how to best proceed as I am running out of ideas. Thanks!

Any thoughts on how to transition from tech startup to corporate development roles? I started at B4 leading digital transformations and now work at a tech startup. I see CD roles focused less on modeling and more on ops excellence which feels like my sweetspot. Also interested in joining a startup spinout from a CD dept. I've heard of these roles at large hedge funds, banks, pharma, but don't know what to look for or how to find these roles outside of joining headhunter networks. Any tips?
