Accounting

I’m an experienced associate here with the firm for almost 2.5 years. I’m up for promotion this year but it looks uncertain. I’m in tax. What are my exit opportunities? I don’t have a cpa right now

Get your CPA. It’s just 3 letters but opens up doors

Don’t get salty. Just hunker down and knock out the CPA exams while it’s still on PWC’s dime.

I was in a similar situation last year - didn’t think I was getting promoted to senior (had just hit my two year mark) so I went on an interview at a private equity firm, but I’m in PCS and they definitely wanted someone with more corporate experience. Also applied to Bessemer Trust (basically a 1040 shop with no room to grow). Didn’t end up getting an offer from either but I did end up getting promoted and I’m not a CPA. Hopefully you have a resource leader or something who will go to bat for you! Good luck with everything!

I agree with EY 1 and Weaver 1. If you’re passing the exams and willing to suffer through to finish it off on someone else’s pocket then get the exams then bail!

This isn’t helpful. I’m asking for exit opps not the obvious to finish the cpa exams. I already exhausted Becker and still no luck. Everything has expired. I have enough intelligence to know i need a cpa but I want to know what options I have without one and thank you AM1 for actually answering that

BCG vs Mck vs RB in DE&NL: In Germany, by impact size and revenue how do Roland Berger, BCG and McKinsey compare? I've seen that RB has quite a strong industrial (manu, auto, warehousing) presence and influence in DE and NL compared to BCG and McK. McK seems to have a heavier presence in Oil and Gas. BCG seems to have a strong presence in digital over the other two. Given that BCG seems to have a very high growth rate I'd assume their digital is making revenue rain. Any additional insights here?

Anyone use a pro microphone and mixer to communicate over Teams/Zoom? Tired of trash audio (having to repeat myself, knowing people are hearing me smash keyboard as I talk and take notes, etc) and thinking about pulling the trigger but wondering if the upgrade is worth it... i.e. do you get significantly better engagement from people if they hear you more clearly?
