Which big 4 would be better for M&A? I'm interested in eventually attempting a lateral transfer into investment banking. I know it's a long reach but want to have an option that doesn't involve getting an MBA.
How did people decide if they wanted to go for MBB, FAANG, or IB during MBA recruiting? I'd want to spread my chances across all, but heard you should focus on one.
Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.
Or… should I take a small loan?
I got an offer from Big 4 firm for 85K at senior level. Is that what I should be expecting. Also my current firm keep telling me that the work will be too much and I won’t be able to handle it. I just want to learn and grow and develop. Is the work unreasonable. I don’t mind working 70 hour weeks to get shit done during busy season at all!
does anyone have the consulting corporate travel policy of their big 4 firm handy? can you please share? i want to switch from EY to others and looking for where I can be at more comfort with the extensive travel.
Why is it that the finance roles I've interviewed for are so technical, but my accounting interviews have always been so chill? I never had a single technical question for big 4, but banks ask the most technical questions

Genuine question: Do y’all Big 4 audit and assurance people really like doing what y’all do? Coming from a similar background I feel like I dodged a big bullet. This was such a big flex back in college to score a Big 4 audit job but looking at what y’all actually have to do makes me sad.

Advice for someone in IT Audit looking into pivoting into a career in cyber? I have about 1 1/2 years in IT audit and have worked on a couple of cyber assessments/cyber program transformations.

Thinking about going after a cyber certification before I start applying but not sure how much longer I can stay in IT

Hi, I am basically the only corporate attorney in a small firm. I am a corporate generalist so I have broad experience (corporate governance, independent k agreements, stock/asset purchases, other general counsel work for clients). I deal with small acquisitions so not considered really m&a as the ones big law doe (my due diligence is minimal in most). I would love to learn more complex m&a but not sure how and I want to better market myself out for a lateral move. Appreciate any advice! Thanks

Fellow runners - I’ve been running 3-4x per week at about a 20-25 mile/week for the past year or so.
My questions: (1) does it make sense to take a week off and let myself rest or do other workouts (i.e. cycling) and (2) I’ve been running with the same shoes since August last year - make sense to get new ones?

I'm a manager in an internal services role that typically doesn't have a lot of upward growth opportunity beyond this level. The SM role is often reserved for people leaders rather than for one w subject matter expertise. I'm interested in transitioning into consulting, particularly procurement/ supply chain. Would pursuing a cert (coupa/appian) be useful in making such a change or would it make more sense to go back to school? No tech background so if school, what degree path?
