Partner would have more security. Companies are bought, sold, merged all the time. I’ve seen a lot of very talented people lose their jobs by no fault of their own

Partner would be more guaranteed long-term earnings

There are no guarantees. And partner guaranteed earnings is wonderful… unless you are forced out.

What are guaranteed earnings?

Ask each one and they’ll say their side of the table is better

I definitely would pick industry to c suite

Higher chance of starting your career at Big4 and becoming a partner than starting in industry that leads to a c suite position. Although C suite has a higher earning potential than partner.

Whenever I meet someone, they think I am a lot younger than I am.

I can’t help feeling devalued based on the way that I look. I am 5’3’’ and I am Asian, so I naturally look younger. I think that I do my make up pretty well and dress very clean/professional/trendy. What am I doing wrong? Or is it just society and I can’t change that

Wondering if anyone can give me some guidance. I work as Financial Services Tax Staff currently (Senior in Oct) but i’m trying to possibly leave the big 4 after the promotion. I am interested in changing my path to Private Client Services but i’m not sure if that will be possible as most of my experience is Partnerships (Private Equity & Hedge Funds) Do you think I will have to start over in ranks to do this? What would you recommend?

I joined KPMG’s Deal Advisory practice straight from college and am approaching my 6 month mark here. I want to jump over to IB, realistically targeting an MMIB.

I know that modeling, BIWS 400, and networking is key, but I’m not sure what else to do to stand out. Also is CPA even worth it? Would love to hear from y’all, esp from former FDD/B4 folks that made it.

Hi y'all, I eventually want to get into a COO/Head of Operations type of role in the AI/ML space. My background: I have about 4+ years operations (chemical engineering), 1 year in a DS type role, 2+ in digital strategy consulting (Big 4) and customer engagement (SaaS start up).
