Deals advisory at Pwc has a couple different segments. I would note that you can join these groups out of undergrad if they recruit for your schools but usually are a little more competitive, and often it consists of internal transfers from audit 1)Financial due diligence 2) Capital markets accounting advisory services 3) Valuations 4) Delivering Deal Value (more operational due diligence, realizing value post deal close) 5) Deals analytics (new, incorporating data analytics into deals) 5) Deals Strategy (I think this is Strategy& management consulting) All aregood groups. As an accountant I would suggest looking at FDD or CMAAS. I switched over to FDD from audit and find the work significantly more stimulating

Deal Advisory at KPMG consists of multiple service lines, with the most common ones (for accountants) being Financial/Formatting Due Diligence (FDD) and Accounting Advisory Services (AAS). You can either go in directly from school or do audit for 2-3 years first before making the switch.

It varies between the teams within DA. If you are referring to Corporate Finance, an Associate is closer to a senior (2-3 years exp). If you are talking about other teams, associate could be entry level straight from university. If you want to work in DA it is most common for auditors with 2-3 years exp to transfer.

I’m in Deal advisory at PwC in the CMAAS group (capital markets and accounting advisory services) and it’s extremely common to be hired right after your masters degree into CMAAS. That’s what I did and there were 20+ people in my start class. If you’re interested, I would apply directly to CMAAS!

Technical accounting. Helping clients adopt new standards, creating 805 purchase accounting schedules in an M&A deal...it varies a lot

Some people in my DA start class never got a masters. Not sure if that was the majority. In Texas you effectively need a masters for your CPA so that was the norm here but differs by region I guess.

Hi all! So I made the switch to industry 8 weeks ago and took on a completely new role (I’ve got about 6.5 YOE.)I love the org and my new supervisor, however I got paired with a colleague who has made it clear she doesn’t enjoy working with me and has serious issues with my working style. She’s a very senior and experienced person so feels bad that she thinks so negatively of me already. I want to improve, but it will take some time as I’m still relatively new. (Cont)

Any thoughts on negotiating more vacation time with a new company? Manager leaving Accenture for a specialty firm in Public Sector. Two firms competing for me have offers on the table.

I have a pretty strong position right now. I'm open to options. Though they kind of already nixed the idea of unpaid PTO.

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
