When does FDD get better? Seems like a long road ahead of being an over glorified data processor.

Genius marketing/positioning by those in charge of the group. Hey, join us for a small raise, limit your exit opps, and work your ass off. We make the most money for the firm. You can act pretentious around other people. Join us!!! But you’ll have a case study to get in. It’s pretty exclusive.

@Deloitte 1 are you guys hiring? Currently at EY FDD looking to switch to a better B4

Why do you think your exit ops are limited? Great skills for FPA and some have even moved to BD roles.

The work is interesting if you attend meetings with Executives and like to learn how businesses operate and make money. If you are at the bottom of the totem pole then yeah - it sucks because you are going through trial balances and making exhibits. And the hours and stress are bananas.

Are you part of the data analytics group of FDD

Interesting is that a specialised group?

That’s the only part I find enjoyable but I don’t think this is strictly a benefit of FDD type roles. Also it’s such a small piece of each deal vs volume of data processing, until you’re really MD level in my opinion. Wondering if it’s only my group that I’m observing this in or if others have similar experiences across firms.
