What’s the downside of leaving FDD for a Corporate finance role? (I.e Sr Financial analyst). It sounds like everyone talks up leaving for Corp dev, while Corp finance is made out to be lowest tier exit.

Lower comp. Though arguably better upward mobility.

Less prestigious, but more WLB. Not really a downside, it depends on what you want.

Hey all! We have a candidate we're considering for a management position. One of our partners found a news story about him from a few years ago that's negative, though not necessarily awful. It was a small-town-gossipy local news story about his solo business, but all the comments on it from locals said he's a great guy and very professional. Anyways, this partner would like me to question the candidate about this news story. I'm curious how anyone else would approach this? Any suggestions?

I recently spoke to the HR of a company where he kept insisting on knowing my salary exepctations. I asked for a range for the role , he did not provide any information on that and said it depends on skill set and differs from person to person. To the point that he wanted to know the total comp off expected even when i said we can discuss on it once i learn more on the role. The number i quoted i feel is less than what i am willing to settle for. How should i reopen discussion on it?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
