Is audit experience good to have? I’m an experienced (have almost 10 yrs exp) hire working on accounting advisory and have never been audit. My group got an email saying that there is an opportunity to work on commercial audit for a short term (2-3 months busy season) and ask to join if interested. Is it worth doing? I dont want to stay audit in long run. I wonder if it is worth having the experience.
I have a question. I have enough credits for the CPA exam, but before I realized that I was aiming for a Master in Accounting and got accepted in my school 5 year program for that purpose. Is there any benefit of getting said master? Or should I focus on passing the CPA exam instead? I just finished my first tax internship and everybody said that the CPA was unavoidable but nobody talked about any benefit of getting a master whatsoever.
What do you guys think?

Has anyone pivoted from medical staff services/credentialing into the tech industry/med tech without a college degree? If so, what steps did you take to get there? I’m considering finding some courses that would allow me to transition careers. 1) I’m burntout of what I am doing right now. 2) I want a career that allows me to continue to be challenged in new ways and the opportunity for higher compensation.
Having a bit of an existential crisis - but fishbowl hasn’t steered me wrong so far.
I’ve got an offer to study a masters in international affairs (focus in economics) at Columbia SIPA (no financial aid package) or I could stay in management consulting (5-6 ywe) at Oliver Wyman.
I enjoy consulting but it wasn’t what I see myself doing long term. Longer term I saw myself either being an economist or working in the world bank.
Interested in the perspectives of folks in this bowl. Thanks guys
Oh no another session
Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Hi, I come from a business analyst/program manager background. I want to transition in IT audit and did CISA. I’m facing rejection after rejection as I don’t have experience in audit. Can anyone please suggest how to get experience in that field as a fresher (in IT audit).
Is there a standard/typical “deal” for lateral partner compensation at AmLaw 100-200ish firms? I’m hearing one firm offers 25% originations / 25% of working attorney hours (WAC) and another article I read used a similar structure as an example, but wondering what the norm is, or if there is one?
Recently, a lot of Senior/Top mgmt. people at KPMG switching to other firms. Is there a reason?
Interviewed by Boeing chennai. Got selected. Sent documents for offer. Initial stage of interview we spoke about budget and agreed. After 3 weeks, so many remainder calls and mails, finally they have responded like budget is problem and we are dropping your candidature. If they are not fine with budget, initial stage itself they could drop. But time wasted.

1.5 years into consulting and got an offer at respected family office for an investment associate role starting in 2-3 months. Competitive comp. Is it worth waiting for other non-cycle processes at more traditional buy out shops or take what you can get? I’m not in a rush to leave my current job and up for promotion soon FWIW
Extremely toxic work environment & interviewing for other jobs. Would you 1) risk being fired (unsure when) or 2) quit/give notice and risk not having an offer fast enough? My finance is set and I’m primarily concerned about professional reputation. Somewhat unsure what to say to interviewers with whom I already started the process, though the real reason is role is nothing like advertised worsened by diff personalities… What would you do?
Anyone’s PE firm hiring? Investment team or ops?

How do these PE interview processes actually work? Does each interviewer say yes/no? Do they give a rating? How do firms decide who to advance?

Obv harder than coming from EB / BB but it happens all the time. Getting the interview is harder, but once you’re in a process they’ll look at you like anyone else
That’s reassuring, and makes sense regarding landing the interview.
Should be all good as long as you’ve had quality reps and can speak to them.
