Startup (with CPA) to Transaction Advisory Services...is it possible? Getting little luck with B4.

Look to smaller firms/regional. My firm not even in top 30 or 40 hires associates and we work on clients big 4 in our region pursue as well (mainly middle market, just a wider range from lower to upper)

Depends on what you do at the start-up and what part of TAS you’re trying to get into. Definitely possible if you have a background that’s complimentary to what you’re looking to do. I’ve been in TAS at both B4 and RSM. Feel free to DM me if you want any further details (or a possible referral into RSM)!

DM if you are interested in MM TAS!

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?

I think you should teach your kid to actively manage their time by giving them access to the Xbox all week, then as punishment for not getting their school work or chores done (not properly managing their time), then you take the xbox away for a little bit as punishment. Your child will learn to use the Xbox as a reward for getting all their other work done. Taking away the Xbox during a set time as a rule doesn't teach your kid anything.
