Transaction Services, M&A, Deal Advisory

Does anyone know the common exit ops from The Valuation group at Big 4? IB? FP&A? Corporate development? I’m in audit and looking to make the transition over to the valuation team.

Usually the path looks like this: flounder for 2-3 years, ask yourself this question every day, apply to a bunch of jobs where you have transferable skills (valuation, modeling, m&a, financing structures). Then you interview and they are confused what kind of accountant you are and why you don’t have a cpa if you work at an accounting firm. Then you stay in valuation forever

Corp Dev, Corp finance and even I banking. Need to be proactive though as competition is stiff for all of these roles. Have a strategy - in my opinion, focus on intense learning in year 1; year 2 — start looking for a switch and make sure you exit by year 3 max

Is it common for Big 4 to hire from ordinary colleges? I’m genuinely curious since not a single partner that I’ve known comes from a Ivy League and almost all of them have a single degree. Culturally this is slightly odd for me since I come from a place where u needed to have pretty strong credentials to get hired and people at the top had them too, if not better. Wondering if this is just skewed view due to the practices I’m exposed to or is actually common in the big 4?
