In middle market TAS, but considering a jump up to Big 4. Is the name on resume worth the 75+ hours a week.

Lol that’s what middle market says to scare you from moving to B4. Moved from middle market to B4 and hours are less overall for me. Way less.

Senior manager in FDD, 5 years in the group. Hit 75 hours maybe 2-3x as well. OP what market you in and how long have you been in TAS? DM me if you would like to chat and discuss a potential referral.

Not sure about anyone else.. but I’m in NYC and I’m not putting in those types of hours.. maybe on one deal within the past year. But I’d say go for it

The move is worth it based on the clients, the teams and complex transaction experience (and likely salary). People work hard everywhere.

75 hour weeks are pretty rare, especially at lower levels where you’re only on one team and not juggling multiple projects. Normal is more like 45-54 but week to week varies a lot. For me the bigger question would be is the comp hit worth it - some middle market comp is way better than big4 fdd.

The comp will catch up/surpass when you hit Manager at Big4. Will Big4 be favorable/honor promotion if you’re up for promotion to Manager on the same cycle. For example, having the potential to be promoted to Manager this July.

I don't think TAS works more than 50 hours ever lol.

That's not true, sometimes the deal just needs to get done.

Honestly just looking to learn anything.

My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?

How much of a bad move would it be to accept an offer and then quit before your first day in favor of working for a competitor with a better comp package? Is this a cardinal sin or understandable? Comp is more or less 70% better at competitor.
