Internal promotes at RSM in MCOL regions hit 150k at director. External hires are usually higher. So morale of the story, lateral your way to a better salary

M2 base in HCOL (not NY or SF)

M2/M3 (Base)

SPIRITUAL HEALTH
When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 64

It is very difficult for me to come to terms with my spiritual illness because of my great pride, disguised by my material successes and my intellectual power. Intelligence is not incompatible with humility, provided I place humility first. To seek prestige and wealth is the ultimate goal for many in the modern world.

Sorry, transferring to the US and I'm a bit confused regarding the FINRA exams.

Are we required to take the SIE, Series 7, Series 63, Series 79?

My offer letter says my employment is contingent on the Series 63 and 79 registrations. It also says Canadians will need SIE/Series 7 top off and I'm Canadian. But it looks like IB just requires the SIE and 79..? HR isn't very responsive.

TIA

Deloitte
Hi everyone, I just had a first round interview for Deloitte M&A Valuation Analyst role based in Australia. I feel like I went pretty well, they were pretty keen at my Analytics background ( DA/Modelling) & my interest in finance (preparing CFA L1 atm)
However I haven’t heard back anything after two days(e.g. book my time for round 2 interview)…I know there is supposed to two more round of interviews.
Just wondering if this is the normal waiting time or I’m not the person they looking?
