Going to join D M&A IT. What can I expect? What should I prep for? How do you all update your technical knowledge?

Former D M&A IT - more than technical knowledge, you need to be familiar with technical terms and jargon and be able to speak fluent BS on digital transformation, cloud computing etc. lot of emphasis on pretty decks and many partners are very big on storytelling. Expect to be staffed in IT PMO projects if partners feel your technical skills are not high enough to be staffed in application or infra workstreams. Good luck!

Question for Americans who left for the UK or Australia: Is it better? Like day to day, are you glad you left? Ik recent events might’ve skewed things for all of us, but how often do you think to yourself “Damn, I sure am glad I live here now?” Would love to hear specific reasons or just a simple yay or nay
