What do you think about working for a family office? You’re sort of pigeonholed into that for life, no? If the family is huge, it may be worth working there?

If you want to do fund accounting and accounting in general then it’s great wlb and decent pay. You will also gain skills to work at basically any other small/medium fund. So it depends what you mean by pigeonholed, if you have any aspirations of moving away from accounting then I would go a different route (FP&A, F500 back/middle office jobs). I have a relative that does all of the taxes and general accounting for a few family shops, she makes a nice living but also views herself as a small business rather than an employee.

If a position for which I had a first round interview has since been put on hold, would it be reasonable to ask for an informational interview with the would-be hiring manager? In my experience, "on hold" has always been synonymous with cancelled. It’s frustrating and I like this particular agency, so I just want to make the most of this. Maybe there are other ways to handle these situations?

Hi! I am a B4 tax staff (soon-to-be senior), and I’m seriously considering management consulting - I think it’s a better fit for my personality and hopefully pays better…so my questions are 1) are consulting firms hiring junior levels at all these days 2) what companies and positions would be my best shot? I think I’ll have a lot of networking to do, so any tips around that would be appreciated. I’m based in California (prefer SoCal over the Bay Area but overall flexible with location)
