PwC2, yes, DC... are there other PS offices?

I'm hoping to make a jump too, how did you start your search?

Actually, there was no search @C1... they found me.

OP I have a sneaking suspicion I might know you and would really like to pick your brain

@C1 shoot me an email or LinkedIn message if you got my goodbye email. If not, I can set up a burner email.

My burner is burner.email.fb@gmail.com

OP what was the salary difference and what level did you leave and come in at? PwC reached out to me recently and I'm curious.

Joined an UMM fund a few months back and things have been pretty lax and we haven’t pursued a new platform yet. I haven’t really got to fully own a workstream yet and instead am more task focused and just do what my VP tells me. It feels a lot different than BCG where it was all about ownership and I’m worried I’m falling behind the learning curve. Any folks have a perspective to share on this?

I wouldn’t normally do this but it’s more of a public service. I would strongly advise anyone considering working with boutique securities firm Sichenzia Ross Ference, to avoid it. You will be underpaid ($100k for 1st years in NYC), worked harder than BigLaw (nights and weekends) and likely to be verbally abused. Feel free to reach out to former associates there and you may get some morsels of what I’m telling you. See comments for more.

Regardless of what the WHO or CDC says, why wouldn’t we just all wear masks because better safe than sorry?

Even if we don’t wanna wear them, let’s not discourage and convince others to not wear them.

In response, I briefly mentioned the timing constraints making it a bit tough, but I was hesitant to say much more. Is there a tactful way to address this sort of thing?
