As a senior - most of the roles that fall into your lap via recruiters tend to be for FDD with smaller firms. Not a terrible option - comp is usually a lot better than big4. Outside of staying in FDD, a lot of people that want more balance move on to accounting manager type roles in industry. There are also people that leave as seniors to go the MBA route, also people hustle their way into banking analyst roles

How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.

imagine learning about the consulting life as an undergrad, going through the brutal recruiting process, landing “the dream job” where you get to travel, explore, and develop yourself.
