Haven’t explored the others but can speak to A&M a little from exploring potentially jumping to their FDD team. Biggest pro will be immediate cash comp - A&M is a 2x bump assuming you’re well utilized and max the bonus. Other pros are lack of independence considerations driven by audit, less bureaucracy etc. Cons - teams seem to run very thin, you lose all the benefits and internal network that go with being part of a dominate global firm, no offshore support and I haven’t heard great things about the culture and leadership. Google aversano - guy is a total creep

Tons of turnover, laughable bonuses since being acquired by Permira, very silo-ed offices so if you’re not in NYC or Chicago you’re on an island

So sad to see the destruction and looting in Seattle downtown. I’m angry too but this diluted the actual protest. Very unfortunate.
