Feel like there is a lot of shade on HL FDD. What am I missing? They put together an extremely strong team of former big 4 leaders and professionals and give bonuses that, while not on A&M level, blow big 4 out of water.

It’s a solid group run by a former Big 4 MD, who’s a really cool guy. They’re growing fast as well, they added 4 more people to the team recently and is still looking to add more.

We are hiring too… would love to add more people and be forced to do our offsite in Vegas next year.

They are struggling. Rumor has it their whole nyc office will be gone shortly.

Yeah, def not struggling lol.
