Totally depends on your team. My hours are brutal and my engagement managers have absolutely no concept of personal boundaries. Other people I know at the firm have more reasonable work/life balance and normal managers. Comes down to luck I guess?

Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on

Out of curiosity, what are exit opportunities for those in the tax field? Can we also transition easily to other pursuits such as Wealth Managemnt/IB or Consulting? Does audit/advisory have an easier transition into other roles as compared to those in tax? Or is it an un-said thing that we are on equal footing? Once had a B4 Partner laughed at me and told me, "Kid, get out of tax immediately. You'll be stuck there forever." Honestly, wtf did he mean? Appreciate honest/blunt answers 👍
