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?

Have any of you become desensitized to $$? I feel like nothing under $100 really registers or a 300-500 expense is what spending $75 used to feel like. I don’t make crazy money (130K) and still save fine but could be better. Is this just getting older? How to ground myself?
