In OTS now at EY. Does TAS or any group within it do work in terms of helping a company go public? Worked on a divestitures and saw that we were essentially tracking pmo updates for that process cont.

Yeah not really but still helpful. I guess we just help them from a pmo standpoint manage the process of getting shit done/prepping for it. Like maybe just track the progress of action items related to it


But where is the separation of work for consultants and bankers in that regard? Do we touch anything related to filing for an IPO/getting listed?

Not necessarily working but managing the process of one for the client?

What exactly are you looking for? I know people in advisory such as ITRA that help companies prepare for IPO as they need to ensure their financial and IT controls are in order. But I'm not sure that's the type of work you're looking for

Hi guys, I have got one full time job for 14LPA from 10.5LPA in Coforge for BA role. On the other hand, I have one more offer for Canada and the job is on 2 years contract basis with 80k CAD per annum where I have to sign 2 years agreement as well that I can’t back out once I get the offer. I was interested to go CA but scared in terms of job security, economic slowdown and a big change. Is it worth going to CA on contract basis job declining the full time opportunity in India.

What does the market look like for M&A consultants in the next two years? I'm talking to a firm that has 90%+ utilization so they have open roles. Changing companies in a time like this appears risky though. What is everyone else seeing?


Those of you who are in supporting functions Human Capital, Digital etc., where do you source your deals from? Does it come from the Strategy / FDD teams always or have you been able to get deals of your own? (I have a M&A related offer on the table and I am considering it. Not in M&A currently)


For those in corporate development, can you talk about the financial modeling aspect of the job? How detailed do you get? Full three-statement or something much simpler? 50 tabs or less? It would be helpful if you could say what size company and whether it’s public or private. Thanks!
