Dude, do your best to not specialize in risk & reg. At PwC (and other firms) the group is struggling with the market changes (decrease in consulting budget, "rationalization" initiatives, ...). I might be wrong, but think that risk&reg consulting will become smaller and smaller. Even though you might be able to survive on "rationalization projects" for the next couple of years, I don't think it will be an easy ride to partnership (as it was for the past decade or so). If you're thinking about going to industry, 2nd and 3rd lines are the biggest targets for said rationalization projects, and you'll likely be on the receiving end...

Shameless company plug, sorry y’all. But Morgan Stanley just rolled the FRM Experienced Professionals Program. This program is designed to recruit and develop diverse professionals regardless of whether they have a background in Finance or Risk Management. If you’re interested just dm me. I made it out of kpmg and hopped over to MS and honestly so far I’m loving it. Also more black people in this space would really go a long way.

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

Worried that if they knew I was interested and they haven’t moved on from past disagreements that they could tell the recruiter to throw out my app/blackball me from the firm. This person is fairly junior in the firm, but don’t know how much influence they have.
