I work in FSO tech consulting so am slightly biased but agree with A1. The talent here surprised me. Lots of very smart people, many with quite good pedigrees as well. East coast heavy as you would expect for the financial services group. Plenty of B4 bureaucracy and it’s a little bit more hierarchical than other firms I’ve been at. Senior managers gunning for partner love dropping the Friday afternoon bombs on their juniors (less common on the tech consulting side than business consulting). Every voluntary exit I’ve seen has been very strong, ranging from FAANG to internal strategy groups at FS firms to highly globally ranked MBAs. Work life balance isn’t great, I think my best week at EY has been low 50s and eating hours happens regularly but weekends apart from Sunday night calls on some projects and vacations are respected. All in all an ok place to spend a few years with great people that can open a lot of doors for you.

Definitely led by a specific side depending on where the deepest relationships are but definitely involve both sides.

FSO for sure - client base is strong and the people are sharp

Digital Finance is pretty good at ACN, what level. Decent talent and network, Pay is great too. I have spoken with EY FSO too and they seem to have decent clients but talent at EY FSO at all levels all the way to partner is shocking! And I’m not biased because I work for ACN. ACN has its issues but that group is solid.

What is digital finance? As in, what types of projects?

Go work for BDO. Because those that know, know BDO.

How to get into development roles, after compliance with devops certification?

26M, making $150k base at a healthcare startup doing strategy. Also about to finish a part time masters (non-MBA), and planning to find new roles after that. I took the gmat back in 2017 (710) and realize that if I don’t apply this year for an MBA I’d have to retake the test. Do you think an MBA would be helpful to advance my career at this point assuming I stay the course in healthcare? Is an executive mba in a few years a better move? Is a 710 good enough to apply to top 10 schools? TIA!
