Some firms have analytics advisory teams but I don't think it would be that helpful in fdd.

Check out the deal analytics groups! PWC and KPMG have dedicated teams for it, and A&M.

Deloitte and ey do that work too but is lumped into other groups

Deal analytics is a dedicated team at EY too.

If it’s the only degree you got, sure. Otherwise, don’t see the point if you already have your cpa

This might be a long shot but I'm looking for a volunteer who is trying to break into a federal career. Maybe a transitioning veteran, recent grad, or career-changer.

The single session is all I'm asking but could certainly turn into a longer lasting coaching relationship (at no cost), if you like.

Hi all, I’m looking to switch into Strategic Finance at a tech company and was looking to chat with someone in a similar role. I have total 4 yoe, the last 3 being in a quant role at a major valuation firm. I want to switch into a more cross-functional and strategic role while still working in finance which is why a strategic finance role seemed a good fit. Finding it tough to get interviews so looking to connect with people in these roles. Thanks!

I've asked a few questions for my sister, passing another one along.

Is there defined promotion criteria from LA to SA? Or does it depend on admin chain, org, and/or politics?

She is looking at LA positions now as a potential comeback kid, and while she was at BAH 10+ years ago, she's forgotten the details, though they'd likely be severely outdated even if she remembered.

TIA!
