Hey EYP Fish - Would anyone be willing to discuss their experience with the Strategy and Transactions practice? I’ve recently come across a LinkedIn post for the PE Sector, and I’d love to learn more about the Culture, WLB and career path before applying. Thanks!

Our recruiters are really annoying. Strategy and Transactions is a broad umbrella which encompasses all of EYP but also some other functions as well. I wish our recruiters would properly designate which groups are being hired for.

D1- yes. Both pre close planning and post merger integration fall under TSE.

OP- Our Strategy team is primarily CDD focused. Hours aren't great, but the advancement is slightly faster than TSE within EYP. I'd say among equal performers the Strat person will make Partner about 18 months faster than the TSE person. Pay is same though

In an effort to improve my interactions with the sales organization and my AE counterparts, I've been researching and studying various literature, webinars, and blogs.

They won't schedule discovery calls for technical issues, and instead, they're concentrating on showcasing new features.
