You won’t burn bridges. You don’t even know if you’re going to get the job. You can ALWAYS jump ship. Your mental health is more valuable than some shitty client making bad work. If Simone Biles can back away from the Olympic Games, you can try to get another job you like more. Believe me.

Any signs of MBB travel hours/week changing significantly post-pandemic? Alternatively, are there any particular projects at MBB with less work hours/week, say like a defense gig? I’m really just trying to not scare myself away from MBB, but WLB is very important to me. Currently at Big4 with a fairly nice WLB and I’d love to pursue a MBB opportunity post-MBA for potentially better business experience/exit ops (more Advise work vs implement/operate done at Big4)

Current M&A tax associate, just got off the phone with a recruiter for a senior M&A position at a private company. Involves a massive raise but with the caveat I won’t be under a CPA to get the experience to be licensed. Should this be a deal breaker? I don’t think I want to stay in accounting/tax long term but it feels somewhat wrong to have spent all that time on the exams just to not get licensed. Thoughts?
