Do both. Work in FDD and learn data analytics on your own. Gonna need to eventually.

I vote analytics. Significantly higher pay, all companies are pushing for and growing their data analytic competencies, but in the end as long as you’re flexible/ willing to learn you can pivot either into some diverse exit opps so think about which one you would enjoy more

How do you think a swap from MBB to big4 strategy would be viewed? Currently in a flagship office of an MBB and there is basically no strategy. There are 9 miserable cost outs / transformations / PMOs for every 1 borderline strategy case. The staffing lottery in my region means you almost always end up working 75 hours+ on some god forsaken project. Contrast that to what I hear about big 4 strategy: lower hours and more strategy exposure as the crappy projects go to the other MC departments

Anyone here from EY Tysons Corner (Assurance Service Line) want to tell me about the firm culture, is it a great learning environment, client base? I got an offer for Senior 1 but want to be sure I’m making the right decision to go Big 4 or jump down to mid-tier. SN: I started at a smaller National firm but left years ago for industry so I’ll be coming in somewhat starting from square 1 but at a senior 1 level.

Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.

Hi moms. What’s the age gap between your kids and how has it worked out in terms of them getting along well and also how has their age gap affected you as a parent (e.g., was a smaller/larger age gap easier/harder for you to manage, etc)? Curious to know everyone’s thoughts. We are thinking a 3 year age gap between our kids but wondering if that’s too much and if they’ll still play/get along not only when they’re young but also when they are older too!
