Trying to decide - should we get married on a Friday in December 2022 or Saturday in Jan/Feb 2023? Would love pros/cons from someone other than me and my fiancé! My fiancé votes for Fri in Dec but I’m torn because asking people to travel for Friday seems like a lot?
Why is every reply to folks asking “how many points would you ask for x?” along the lines of “get over yourself lol.” Is that really how folks feel? Are Marriott employees writing all the replies?

Decent hotel recommendations in Manhattan?
Edit: preference for midtown and UWS but open to anywhere within 30 min subway to midtown.
Decent: best bang for your buck, quality you would stay at when traveling for work.

Working as a Senior Accountant at Vanguard with my CPA; 3 YOE, Greater Philadelphia area. Took this job to give accounting one more try and while I don’t regret it I’m bored. Anything in finance more challenging/less box-checking? People have recommended public but I’m not interested in audit/tax or travel.
Q for Delta travelers:
We are going to buy a Delta gift card as a graduation gift (recipient is based out of SLC). I’ve flown Delta like once or twice in my life so I know nothing … is there any avenue to maximize the gift (for example, sales, discounts, promos such as lounge access with purchase)?
Thought I’d check to get the most bang for my buck before I purchase. TIA
here's my prediction.
If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following;
-The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes.
-Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu.
-Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it.
-It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact.
The media will then message that we should;

I’m looking to switch to advisory. What are the best options with work life balance and good future prospects? I was thinking ARA but read a couple posts saying it’s not worth it. Is FAAS good in that aspect?
I’m looking for any financial due diligence roles. Are there even any staff/associate positions? High performer in government audit
Is the learning curve from FDD to restructuring pretty big? Thinking about switching since the FDD job market is dry and I’m seeing a lot of restructuring positions. Also curious about the WLB, is it similar to FDD?
For people that started recently, what is your utilization looking like? I joined in September and have 24% utilization. I have been staffed on 4 deals that all died within a week and it’s been pretty frustrating
Which FDD shops have the most toxic individuals/assholic attitude? Trying to avoid these like the plague if I ever hit the job market again.
3rd party recruiter wants to set up a video call so I can meet her team. She said it's not an interview but required if I will use them in my job searching. Anyone have a similar experience?

What is sneakily the most time consuming process that doesn’t seem like it should be time consuming? Feel like it’s sending request list/follow up emails
I am working my ass off for this weekend but kinda like it because my utilization rate is going up....
I am a senior at EY and work for assurance. My profile was recently submitted for Pwc deals and advisory group. My first question is how many hours do you work in FDD? Do you need a CPA to be promoted to manager? I have passed one and working towards other. I do have MBA though.
Only been in FDD a few months but I already hate it (idk why fishbowl won’t update my title). Should I cut my losses and leave or stick it out a bit more? I wanna go into industry accounting
I have a recruiter showing me a general overview of FTI Consulting saying that compensation would consist of base salary + monthly qualified billables + 10% to 20% annual bonus. Is this similar to A&M (% of billable hours)? I'm currently in TS but am looking for a boost in compensation, more than a public accounting firm can offer. What kind of $ are FTI seniors making in this market?
For those in Houston, how much of your deals are outside of the O&G industry? Considering a move for living purposes but I’ve mainly worked on tech deals and not sure how transferable my skills would be for an O&G/Healthcare industry.
I got approved for the SaT FDD rotation this summer, but tbh idk if I can make it until then. Audit is terrible right. But I think I might burn some bridges if I left. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Should I wait it out and do the rotation or just apply somewhere else.

New to Fishbowl?

Very project dependent. My experience is an outlier but I’ve spent most of my time in FDD traveling to clients 4 days a week. Typical buy-side project is one trip to the target for a night or two over the course of 3-4 week diligence.
NYC - 0% travel. Was associate in group for 7 months pre-covid, so level may vary.
5-10%. I am at office most of the project. Might visit target for Q&A once or twice. I don’t know what to expect after but if lead going back to in person meetings just because it is easier and we need to be as efficient as possible with timr
Been in diligence 10 years. Given the time sensitivity and the costs involved, I believe there will be less and less travel post COVID, unless the client wants us to do a site visit or its a local deal.
Typically traveling to target once to meet with management. I hope we continue to do meetings remotely - it’s not more efficient to be in person if there’s air travel required - not to mention the cost to a client to send a team on short notice. It also simplifies work-life balance - traveling with little to no notice makes it incredibly difficult to manage a family.
