M&A analytics at B4 or A&M. Associate level

A&M for sure

I'd probably go big 4 as an associate and develop the skills (I would imagine the training and resources is more formal) then bounce to A&M as soon as you hit senior

like

If you do opt to stay in Big 4 then transfer laterally to A&M later on, as SA1 mentioned, try to stay one year as a senior, and when you interview at A&M, either apply for senior associate or at least associate and ask for guaranteed promotion to senior in the next cycle in writing during offer. Sure you can make great money even as analyst at A&M, but there’s still sizable difference between associate and senior associate in base (I believe $90k and $120-125k) and slightly higher chargeable % for bonus.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but associate at big 4 is entry level. Associate at A&M is experienced hire. Analyst is their campus hire equivalent.

Correct. I should have said entry level

*entry level position

pay structure at A&M the same for M&A analytics as it is for TAS/FDD?

Yup. A&M’s Global Transaction Analytics (GTA), which I’m assuming the OP is talking about, falls under their Transaction Advisory Group (TAG). The written offer letter I had received for a position at GTA actually came letter marked as TAG.

Partner in big 4, mid 40s. Doing okay but lack motivation as I don’t respect what we do or most of my clients. Team is decent and I feel responsible for them but not excited about consulting. Never been in the industry. Very tempted to do a start up. Have a few ideas. I would love some advice. Either how to suck it up and stay the course or being brave to try something new.

I've been working for a regional public accounting firm since last Summer. It's a small office and I don't really fit in. The accounting software(s) is also ancient and slow here(circa 2003). I quickly applied for a position at a Big 4 and surprisingly was quickly offered a job. The training here has been haphazard and even managers barely know how to use the software. My main concern is the awkwardness from leaving after such a short time but the commute is an hour shorter to the big 4 firm.
