What Banks do you guys use? I’m a first year and I’m looking to move from PNC to one that makes my money work for me (as much as possible, at least).
Anyone experience private equity buyout? How did the legal dept do in the reorgs and layoffs that follow? Very likely my currently public company will be bought by a PE firm soon. I am a general corporate counsel but I am the only one in legal supporting public company-related work. A chunk of my work would disappear if we go private (but I don’t mind that part TBH). But think that may put me on top of the list to go if the new owners need to cut. Should I start getting my resume ready now?
Looking for a switch. Any leads?

Can anyone compare how MBB hours stack up against B4 PA (Public Accounting)?
I know the work is entirely different but just curious on the hours. Outside of busy season I probably average 45-50 hrs (closer to 70 when filing a 10k out the door) and it’s not bad but just curious if MBB is more or less.
EY SMs, what's your level and base?
