Associate then lateral after a year


How many YoE do you have?


I’d kill to be at a BB, but I’m not at KPMG anymore or big 4 for that matter.

That gap is too large. Go 150k. Prestige doesn’t pay your bills.


The 110 is with 70% bonus and the 150 is with 100% bonus

Associate 100%.


Honestly, I’d go do M&A finance at a tech company.

There are M&A finance roles specifically but could also look for corporate development analyst roles.

Come do tech M&A at SVB

Is that what you switched to? Can I get the elevator pitch?
