Considering you don’t even know the name of the group you want to be in, I’m going to say impossible. No such thing as strategy advisory at Deloitte.

I assume you’re talking about the MM IB within EY then? That’s generally what M&A advisory/lead advisory is. I think that would be a tough switch but if you can pick up the valuation skills needed it’s not impossible.

No one can answer you on how easy it is, it’s up to you to go for it. The only thing I can say is that it has been done before.

What is "transactions and strategy advisory"? Like deal advisory? FDD?

It’s like deal advisory

Recently accepted an internal transfer offer to switch to FDD from audit in a couple months. After seeing inflation numbers, the PWC 15% deals bump, and generally feeling lowballed (90k HCOL for an S1), I’m feeling really fed up and considering looking to other big 4 (PWC) for FDD to get the comp I feel I deserve. Would this be taboo considering I already accepted an offer?
