Senior at Big 4 FDD vs Associate at A&M? Base is higher for my big 4 offer but A&M is higher in terms of total comp because of the bonus and will be compensated way more as I get promoted. Per this sub it seems like A&M is the way to go but wanted to get some thoughts.
What exit ops have you guys heard of from B4 m&a tax as a JD/LLM? I’m an intern right now and I think I’ll likely accept an offer as the work and team has been great, but I don’t think I see myself here past 5 or so years. Any details would be appreciated (comp, WLB, difficulty, etc)

About 9mo into B4 (current Senior 1) and have and may have an opportunity at FAANG to exit for 30% TC bump — would you take it or stay in B4 until manager and then exit for potentially more? Think I’d be happier at FAANG but want to time my exit for best career trajectory.

So I usually workout in the evenings, sometimes in the middle of the day and feel completely fine. Whenever I workout early in the morning I get a severe migraine that lasts the whole day, along with some dizziness and nausea. I don’t eat before I workout if it’s early morning - I think it may have to do with low blood sugar? Anyone experience this?

Has anyone taken like two weeks off to just study for a CPA exam like 80 hours/wk and get it finished?

Do you ever feel like a Big Four reject
Does anyone else ever get this feeling?
It's almost busy season but all the work I can do to prepare is done so I have no motivation to do anything else. I have time to do the last couple of things needed and I can't ask for more work because then something will come up and I'll be overloaded.
What do you do? Take time for yourself and read a book? Ask around to help others? I feel lost and guilty doing nothing but I know the storm is about to hit
Question for those of you who work in SALT/Private, from a former SALT professional:
Would you be interested in a hybrid role combining accounting and SALT work? On the accounting side, you would perform bookkeeping and payroll functions. On the SALT side, it would be more heavily geared towards sales & use tax compliance, with the opportunity for some consulting work.
Or would you prefer to just do one or the other?
