People do it bc fintech is interesting, and it’s as close as you’ll get to getting experience for fintech exits at a consulting firm

Depends on the exact type of financial services

Strategy - Nice
Advisory - Mehh

And I'd say its more because strategy is better perceived rather than financial services per se.

I mean, I like FS, but I don't feel this is the general feeling across consulting

Who told you it's so interesting?

I think it's more about EY rather than FS EY1

Staff Aug for a bank's internal audit would be considered "FS Consulting". Some might call it "interesting"...Definitely more interesting than watching paint dry.

I’ve been with my bf for a number of years. We love each other lots and have an open relationship. About a month ago I met a guy with whom I‘ be started to feel really close to. I don’t think it’s close to how I feel for my bf, nor do I think I’d rather be with him than my bf, but nevertheless it’s quite intense, like a mini-crush . As an added complication, he has a husband as well. Would love any thoughts on how to handle this.
