What does a job in Operational Risk and Resilience entail? What do you work on? What’s the day to day job?

This largely depends on what firm you are in, and what type of work within Ops Risk it typically is. There’s a large variety of work in these buckets. If you’re at a firm like OW, you can expect to be doing more strategy type work for large FS clients (think roadmapping and risk org framework development) whereas at B4 and ACN you can expect to be doing risk org implementations along with a flavor of some roadmapping. Where it gets reallly sucky is when you get into something like controls testing which is boring as hell. Overall, it’s interesting, but if you don’t know which direction to go in, you can get pigeon holed into some super boring projects.


Love this response. Exactly my experience. Desperately trying to steer myself towards transformation/implementation and out of IA/testing engagements.

My biggest fear is that all the energy, effort, caring, fights, struggles, and work I have put into all my life, that I will end up having accomplished nothing or real value and will be alone.

Then I look around and realize im already there.

Question for partners/shareholders: How would you feel if a new associate chose to leave the firm to pursue a federal clerkship? The clerkship would start only 8 months after I began with my new firm. I have wanted to clerk for a long time and fear the pay-cut may not be feasible in the future. But I also love my firm and would love to come back in 1-2 years. What would be your feelings?

I told my fiancé I wanted to go to the local dive bar to play Mario kart tonight. She had a long week and wanted to just spend time together. Ok so we won’t go, no big deal. She gets a call from her aunt and they are on the phone for 2 hours now. Note: we got engaged a couple weeks ago and this is the first time they’ve spoken since. I’m a little bummed, could have whooped some ass as bowser.


So how hard is this fit call? Is this last part of getting accepted? Any tips. ?
