TAAG? That's the group I'm in. I would expect questions about how you organize having multiple deadlines, research things you don't know, and any experience you've had with technical stuff. Even if it was just a time you wrote "Under ASC blah blah this is accounted for as blah blah." Basically, any time you've worked with the guidance, if you have. However, these groups aren't necessarily looking for technical exp at lower levels

No prob. It's a bit better than my experience in audit, I guess. A lot of work we get is assisting audit teams with stuff they aren't familiar with, so we have a busy season that coincides with audit. Outside of busy season, it's a predictable 40-45 hr week though. Busy season is 55 billable hours so like 60 a week total for me on avg from now til March.

Im in the final round of interviews at VMware and news came on Monday that they are being acquired by Broadcom. Is this something that I should be concerned about?

Just had a second round interview and when I asked about next steps, the interviewer told me he plans to recommend me for the final round. This is a large consulting firm that’s notorious for moving slowly with interviews - when asking the recruiter for his email address for a thank you note, should I mention that my interviewer said he’d recommend me for the next round?

There are a lot of really smart candidates I’ve been casing with who’re prepping for interviews at MBB. What separates a good candidate from a great one though? At the moment I don’t feel like my case performance is differentiated (although I’ve only started preparing). Will most of those great candidates I’ve cased with on rocket blocks get an offer assuming that’s a particular subset of people who’re really preparing for it / wanting it?
