Work is much more strategic in nature, faster, and you work more closely with the investors and portfolio companies. You usually get access to make things happen as well and very very quickly. We don’t do typical commoditized reports.

What do you mean by reports? I was referring to the PEPI and Enterprise Improvement practices at AM / Alix respectively!

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
