To my MBB fish. If you had any advice for the you just starting at your firm, what would you tell them?
Did you all have to formally request your SAT, ACT, GMAT scores and send them into MBB after you got an offer?
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
I interviewed for Data Analyst role at EY, it went well and the job sounds great, but I'm a bit hesitant to leave PwC because I really like the firm and I'm just 8 months in my job as an associate at a subgroup of ITS that has some focus on technology and analytics but it's mostly tax compliance.
I do want to transition to data analytics but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to go to another big 4, or maybe just look for a position in industry.
Any advice or similar experience?

- Does anyone have resources on making the transition (recruiting tips, modeling exercises, etc.)?
