So you would like to do tie out more(get your brain rusty)?

Short answer - no.

I think once you start understanding the principals more then you will enjoy planning and consulting more. I enjoy having a variety of both. You definitely use a lot more brain power on the consulting side but it’s nice to be able to turn off and just do returns.

@EY 2 Why so much animosity towards auditors? Are you perhaps jealous?

I’m being facetious because EY1 said auditors get rusty brain

Lazard Hello I need some advice. Basically, I am a newbie to IB and I got a first phone interview for an IB Analyst position. It went great and I could feel it. They said there would a super-day. I would like to well prepare for this super day given my background is not finance. Where should I find appropriate materials to study? I may or may not be invited to a super day but I would rather be well prepared. Thanks!

Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like.

Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)?

Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!
