Consultant1 - I work in M&A. The grass is greener on the other side.

@EY1 - That’s why you acquire and merge both sides. Grass isn’t greener when there’s only one side.

At this point, the M&A team has probably left. Implementing the merger would require a different skill set.

Industry guy here who’s done M&A. While exciting, the hours suck. I’m ok not doing it

EY1 .. I shaped my entire undergraduate curriculum all my extracurriculars and my independent studies toward working in M&A. Also have investment banking and private equity internship experience. It’s not a grass is greener on the other side type thing ..

In M&A, and i would agree, it sounds cooler than it is. I enjoy getting to know my client and in M&A, you only get to know one side.

After being at a string of failed startups (one blew up after I left with no equity 😅) working on and paying for my degree all along the way, I have $40k in debt, $10k cash (after one year of saving post graduation), and make $120k total. I’m 40 next year and want to break the cycle, where the hell do I start? For reference, I want to travel and enjoy life but also want to have a solid savings. Probably my biggest issue is that I give zero f%*>s about money, it gives me very little value.

I am on the fence because I am still bitter about how they have treated him and me regarding this virus and how we have done everything we can to keep safe...

hi fishes- I recent got an offer from JPMC for a 602 at $130k base + 7% bonus. Aside from that, I also have another offer (public govt) for $84k, no bonus but will give a direct report. I’ve been working at this public govt office for the last 1.5 yrs and it’s comfortable and I don’t have private sector experience. The LOB in JPMC is CIB. I would also be giving up ~$6K in pension. I don’t pay for commute right now (5x in office) but I’d have to pay addl expense for JPMC (3x). Any thoughts? TIA!
