How's everyone's experience been with shared services groups taking over portions of audit work? Personally, a few rough patches at the start but from then it's all been great.

Here’s how to withdraw your funds from FTX

Hedge Withdrawals

Open a position on FTX and an opposing position on another exchange (perhaps Binance for the irony) for the same financial exposure. If the position on FTX profits, keep trading. As the position on FTX experiences losses, the opposing position on the other exchange profits. Keep it up until you’ve depleted the funds on account at FTX the close your opposing position. You’ve successfully withdrawn funds using a hedge. You’re welcome.

What is the deal with managers + up who have calendar blocks all day long and are constantly in “busy” mode? It makes it almost impossible to schedule necessary meetings bc it’s never clear when there is an actual conflict, and I try to avoid pinging questions when someone’s in red mode to be respectful of them being in a call or needing to focus but when it’s all day I just have to ignore it. End rant lol

Anyone here did a rotation and was able to transfer right after it, if so how did you go about it? I am doing a rotation in a few weeks and just saw a job posting for that group. I have been networking slowly with the group (don’t want to seem aggressive) but planning to do more over the next two weeks. Should I reach out to the recruiting team first and see whether they would consider me for it? Or should I wait until I start the rotation, prove myself and then have that discussion? Thanks!

Having an early-life crisis. Would moving from an A1 in Deal Advisory to a government accounting role be career suicide?

I just want something a bit more relaxed, but without sacrificing too much pay. I know that’s a lot to ask for but just wanted to get some opinions.
