I’m a mid-level associate practicing real estate law, (almost 😱 a senior associate), thinking about what the next few years will look like. I’m not sure if I want to remain in this trajectory - trying to make partner or going in-house. I was curious to know if anyone made the transition out of real estate law/big law into a completely different field or business and what that looked like.

My friend has following offers from three companies after MBA (two offcampus and one from campus)

1. Finance Effectiveness/ EPM role at one of the Big 4
2. Deal Advisory role at one of the Big 4
3. Organization strategy role from one of the top consulting companies (not Big 4)

Which role offers the best exit options? All the offers from US support teams of the companies.
OS role offers better than the other two (only slightly), but I am interested in a good profile

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools .

Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Hi 👋 Nice to have this bowl here! I’m a CPA with 5 years experience in tax who recently realized that I can’t stand doing compliance anymore.

Do you code at all in tax tech? Or is it lostly macros and Alteryx?

I am in a tech IC position. One of friends switched to FAANG by converting the profile to consultant profile. The friend who might have less tech knowledge than me is now in FAANG and earning more. If the end goal would be that the friend might one day be a product manager and me an engineering manager taking instructions from the same friend, isn't consultant profile an easier path to growth. I had been practising DSA for years and the competition is only ever growing.

Hi guys,

TFW a friend gets upset about something you did to irritate her, but doesn’t say anything to you about it AT ALL, then sits and stews on it and gives you the cold shoulder. You ask “hey what’s up? Did something happen?” She finally explains after 2 weeks!
You apologize for your error (which was unintentional) AND EVEN AFTER YOU APOLOGIZE for inadvertently hurting her feels she still acts all butt hurt? This level of drama is something I don’t understand.
