How's a US CMA vs CIMA? Big 4 M in a finance transformation role who's become somewhat of a generalist who knows GBS and operating model design. Looking at this decision to study as an accelerator to exit consulting and having a safety net to do so. Preferred roles are in finance business partnering, program management or key account Mgmt (won't need a finance degree for the last two, I assume, but will help to drive conversations nevertheless).
Has anyone ever taken leave to complete the cpa exam? I’m struggling and just feel like I’m drowning with everything tbh. Have failed many times (high 60s) and even had a section expire. Expectations for my work performance are very high and I have neglected studying because of that (my own fault, I know, but unintentional). It’s really starting to weigh heavy on my mind but I don’t wanna quit. How long was your leave, how did you schedule your studying during that, any other advice? Cont…

I graduated with a BA in Political Science in 2009 and worked as a Financial Analyst and in Investor Relations after undergrad while completing my MBA. One thing led to another and now I find myself at EY for over four years working financial services focused compliance engagements... I want to get (back?) on the FP&A career path. Any advice? You think I’d need to start at the bottom of the FP&A totem pole?
Anyone have any suggestions for accounting, finance, or data analysis books or online material to prepare for an MBA? I’m accepted to LBS but my background is in entrepreneurship so I know a lot of random stuff but I want to be prepared for the required core courses.

Returning to B4 firm post-MBA in a few months - I was thinking I'd like to start reaching out to some of the contacts I'd networked with last summer to see what they're up to / what projects they have pending. Just wondering if this makes sense or if it'd be more annoying than anything. Thanks
Has anyone done the Forté MBALaunch program? Does it make you a more competitive applicant for top 5 MBA programs?
Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
Is an MHA treated the same as an MBA in the healthcare consulting world? I keep seeing info. on MBA grads making ~150k post grad and can't help but feel like I'm grossly underpaid if that is true. Have an MHA, multiple certs, 3 YOE, making less than 100k right now.

A friend has offers for Bain and BCG Dubai at the consultant level (joining just after his MBA) and he is confused on which one to take. Any thoughts to help him make a decision? Things he cares about are total compensation, career progression, mobility/ transfers to other offices and casework focus on tech (if any).
Has anyone ever transitioned from sales/recruiting into project management? If so, can you share your experience and how you are enjoying it?
Anyone @Kearney have any advice or willing to speak with me regarding the case interviews? I have mine coming up next week.
I gave notice because I am moving to another state for personal reasons and now my boss wants me to be fully remote. At first he was 100% ok with me being fully remote but now he is discussing dropping my pay 50% to allow me to be remote. Like no... am I right to consider that absolutely wrong given that I would be doing literally the same job I have been doing and putting in the same hours as anyone else? I was remote already throughout Covid so idk what the issue is now

What does an Operating Partner at a PE firm make (base/bonus/carry/other benefits)? How hard is it to make that move as a big4 Manager/Senior Manager or is there another way in?
Is anyone else at B4 getting slaughtered? Wait listed everywhere so far despite 760 and above average stem GPA at all schools i applied to. Leadership is probably a weak point for me ill admit but certainly not non existant and I know my ECs are above average. I feel completely blindsided
Leadership said racial diversity is not a priority for the company compared to gender diversity. What are your thoughts? (My thoughts in comment)
What are the salary levels like at Invisors? Particularly manager, senior manager, director roles. Thanks.
Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position. When I tell them my desired compensation they think it is too high.
Uh so does anyone actually save their pto days and cash them out at the end of the year?
Getting cold feet about turning in my notice. Recently got an offer from a company for a role I’ve been super curious about. My current role is good - pay-wise, manager & team-wise, etc - but I’m really tired of the daily grind of my current job function. I’ve been here for only 4 months so I’m afraid I’m making a mistake leaving a good opportunity for something so unknown and career pivot and sooo new to me (plus it’s a startup, so less stable than current job). What should I do?
Recruiter said I’m off put by your salary range & I responded that everyone has their priorities. Did she think insulting me was going to get to work for Infosys? 🤦🏻♀️🙄😒

Amex platinum with 150k welcome vs Hilton aspire with 200k welcome? Plat is 695+175 and aspire is 450+0 for second card. The fine hotels and resorts is sort of a difference for the platinum. Is it worth it?
Had an interview at a firm where they have an unlimited vacation policy that’s just “speak with your deal teams in advance to get time off”. Anyone actually know in practice how many days is a normal amount to request in a @year? My current firm gives you 20 days and very much pushes you to take those days, so just wondering if anyone at a firm with a similar policy takes around 20 without issue.
