FDD does not have WLB right now

Val is more predictable schedule, FDD much more varied workload.

Ditto

At least when everyone was back in the office it seemed like FDD had more volatility in terms of an individual’s workload whereas valuation people were consistently there into the evening but maybe not as many FDD type all nighters. Though looking at how deals has been the past year, I doubt there’s been a lot of downtime in either group recently.

From Big4 Europe perspective -> Valuation does certainly have a better WLB in general, workload is less volatile, better predictable, but on the opposite side no time sitting on the bench, there is always smth to do.
