I saw a listing on LinkedIn that Alvarez & Marsal is looking for associates to join their diligence practice. Is there anyone who would be willing to talk to me more about their experiences in that practice? Thank you!

Alvarez and Marsal is a well respected company for deals/M&A.

I see A&M on the same deals I am working on (e.g., if I am the sell-side advisor they’re the buy-side advisors and vice versa). If you search any member of their TAG team you’ll almost always see ex Big 4 professionals (with little to no other firms making up their ranks).

Yeah definitely. I wouldn’t recommend just switching based on the pay. Feel free to DM if you want to discuss my reasons but I don’t want to put my old firm on blast 😂

Does anyone have trouble getting their SO to be more cleanly? My SO and I moved in together 1 ur ago and I feel like I’m constantly reminding him to do certain chores or pick up I after himself. I’m nice about it but it’s exhausting and a lot of the time he gets defensive or annoyed when I ask. I don’t have high expectations, just doing dishes as they pile and not pleasing clothes on the floor, putting dishes in the sick when you’re done etc. Anyone else had this problem?

Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
