Should I go for an MBA?
Hey everyone! Hope your day is going good!
I've got close to a year of internship experience in the Data Science field where I worked on a number of end-to-end projects.
Currently I'm looking for opportunities as a Data Scientist and would appreciate any help given.
Do consider helping out an upcoming data scientist and have a nice day!

I am looking for pointers on laterally moving from a smaller consulting firm to top consulting firms. Would love to learn more about the feedback system in place (i.e., the metrics that are evaluated, is it a ranking system or qualitative feedback?), overall firm culture, things that too firms look for in a lateral hire.

Need help from the Hivemind. I am a rising 4th year who has only been at my firm for a little over a year (after a few clerkships). I like my firm well enough, and the partners I work with like me a lot, but I’ve learned that Biglaw is not the life for me and want to get out ASAP. I’m applying to a Fed agency that I’m really excited about, but the application requires a reference from your current supervisor. I haven’t told the firm I’m thinking about leaving. How would you handle this?
Customer : you should be getting on your hands and knees like a dog to beg for my business
Manager : sorry for my front desk upsetting you well comp your 90 minute session
Me : gets coached for not breaking policy and giving the lady a massage that’s positive for covid so I told her to rebook
I just got hired for my first corp job after uni. Any important questions I should ask during onboarding/1st day?
How would you account for promotional sensitivity of products when you apply weights to a drug portfolio? For example, a drug could be first-in-class and as a result doesn’t have to be promoted as much as another drug which has some competition. We have some weights from sales but how do you include weights for promotional sensitivity on top?

Looking for tips/suggestions in leaving public after 6 years. Also wanting to change industries at the same time. The latter appears to be the hard part with so much time in my specific industry.
I loathe tax, I want to work to live not live to work. Switching fields means starting all over again. I feel torn. Anyone have success stories? Advice?
Accepted an offer recently (last week) and haven’t heard back from the HR regarding a confirmed start date (we discussed dates but didn’t nail down in offer letter) or background check, is this stuff that normally takes time to get set up? Thanks
Today is the official last day at PwC. Mixed feeling, gonna miss my coworkers but excited about my next job.
Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X
How would you answer in an interview “Why are you looking to leave (insert Big 4) and why now”? Early SM rank.
More than likely receiving an offer for a more technical position than I’d like in my career. In short, I think it pigeonholes me into a role I’m not comfortable with and have little interest for.
How do I politely reject the offer when it comes through?
A job where I use my current skill set to do something rewarding, fulfilling, meaningful, actually help people not just indirectly through corporate BS… readyy go! Need ideas/inspiration please. (And more detail than “NFP work” please.)
So.. if I put in my notice and they let me go immediately due to going to a competitor (I heard that pwc pays for the two weeks regardless) - can I immediately start at the new job? Wouldn’t that mean that I am on both payroll for two weeks? Is that an issue?
What amount of money would you need to be offered from another company to leave (talk in terms of percentage increase in salary and include your level at the firm)? I’m passively looking and am curious what offer would be considered too good to pass up as an AY2.
Have a third and final interview for a senior accountant position tomorrow with the director of tax in industry. I previously spoke to the director and CFO. Is this is a formality? What should I expect? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Please recent honest feedback/review about The Siegfried Group? I would appreciate your help to make a desicion ASAP
I applied at this company and last Friday they verified my references. And then 4 days later hiring manager sets up a phone conversation letting me know they still have other finalist they are interviewing and will let me know when t they make a decision. I really wanted this job and now idk if I’ll even get it. But my question, why would she verify my references and not offer me the job!is that normal ? This never happened to me before 😞
Anyone mind sharing what they left PA for? Trying to get some ideas here, I’m in tax but would appreciate any non-standard exit opps too!

Has anyone made the leap from Corporate accounting/Financial reporting to something more niche like Revenue Reporting? I work in SEC reporting but want to work somewhere more diverse/fast paced/in the saas world and am considering a revenue reporting manager position at a tech company.
I haven’t worked in revenue before and am not super familiar with 606 so I don’t know if I would flop but I’m a CPA with 8+ yes experience (mix of PA/corporate experience)
Best route to CFO… FP&A or Controllership route? (In my case I might be breaking into FP&A with an accounting background with a CPA license)
Pls help! I’m updating my resume with the hopes of leaving the firm in the spring. How do I go about including the industries that I’ve worked in and that I’ve been on IPOs? Currently a staff 2 (started in the summer of 2019) and I’ve been on a total of 4 busy seasons and then the 2 IPOs. I also have about 5 years of work experience (incl accounting) prior to joining EY, so not overly concerned about leaving before promo if the timing works out that way
I got an email on Friday at 1:30 asking for my availability this week for an interview and I responded back Saturday at 11:30 and sent the recruiter an email letting him know I responded and I was looking forward to the interview but I haven’t heard back. Is this a bad sign or am I overthinking it?
New to Fishbowl?

Yes, I’m about to finish my mba and I came from Big 4 audit and will exit to MBB strategy.
Switching to accounting advisory or FDD is a cheaper route if you want to be a CFO
I came from accounting advisory and am now a CAO. Many of my peers that I have kept up with are now CFOs. Same with some former audit partners I know. Depends how much the company values the compliance/process aspect of the CFO role. Some companies don’t care about compliance and only care about the capital markets aspect of the role and therefore an ex-banker makes sense for the position. Most controllers/CAO are involved with the capital markets transactions and therefore the combination of technical accounting expertise, process expertise, and the capital markets reps make an ideal candidate for a CFO.
Should have said TLDR; you don’t need an MBA lol.
Worth the boost. Unless you genuinely like accounting, do it.
FWIW I pivoted to data science after 5 years in accounting and my biggest regret is not doing it sooner.
Don't need MBA to be cfo
