For strategy shops, take their revenue, assume gross margins >50%, make some assumptions about fixed costs, and slap an EBITDA multiple (5 is my guess having done absolutely 0 research) on it to figure this out.

Neither would I, I guess that explains why I am not on the buy side

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?
