It’s one of the pinnacle exit opportunities for FDD. Extremely competitive and you will be competing with top tier IB talent, it is not an easy role to get.

@EA1 I meant Corp dev. I mistyped.

Senior associate considering an in-house role but am not sure about how conflicts play into the equation. The in-house role is kind of my ideal job (sector counsel) and I’m really excited about it. However it’s at my biggest client’s biggest competitor. Both are Fortune 100 companies. My client provides maybe a quarter of my work and I am regularly adverse to various sectors/businesses of the new company for my big client and a few other clients. This feels like a no go. Thoughts?

Working at ACN right now, 2 YOE. Will pivoting over to a startup in a more software sales-based role for another 2 years before my MBA (and moving internationally for this) add to, or take away from my story? I’m thinking: Cons: less brand recognition, shows I didn’t stick around long enough to show progression, strength of recommenders, lower pay Pros: international experience, less conventional background and shows I have a more diversified skill, probably more impact @ a startup. Thoughts?

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies.

How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
