CPE list, 401k info, change any logins associated with you company email. Do not take work papers or anything of the sort.

Usually your firm can provide a checklist you need to follow before leaving. Are you after something from HR? Or more opinion from those who've left who express what they felt they should've taken a copy of? Personally I took nothing Moore than the knowledge I gained. The artefacts more or less I can recreate, other than legal docs which I should've have a copy of anyway. Beware the legal risks of taking copies of things you shouldn't.

What is your level? There is a lot to do to disentangle at senior levels. Otherwise, agree with the thread, don’t copy stuff and take it because they track all of that. Clean break, just have a photographic memory so you can hit the ground d running at your new place! Congrats!!

Check the wiki of reddit r/personalfinance they have a checklist of things to do before you quit

Question: Are MBB hours really worse than big 4?

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

MBB helps their employees find an exit opp via alumni connections and an internal job search. Why doesn’t Big 4/ACN/IBM do that? It’s looked down upon to say you are interested in leaving.

I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP.

They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help
