Pre merger ODD/CDD is absolutely strategy

This 👍

Yes - if you’re working on engagements that shape the direction of a new entity/spin off, you are by definition doing strategy

Most consulting firms seem to do so

Transaction advisory - no, it's accounting

CDD - absolutely, it's strategy

I am in this role and no it’s not strategy

Nope! (And this is my work too)

CDD, post-acq type stuff, definitely

Nope its accounting trying to sound better

I do M&A at D and I'm afraid no. Due Diligence is basically analyzing and researching while generating business and financial perspective, not necessarily creating a strategy or to-do decisions.

Hey everyone, I'm refeing specifically to financial due diligence. Sorry for the lack of detail in my response!

How do you bring up work life balance during an interview? I have health concerns and need ample time to rest / not overwork myself but I don’t want to bring that up as a negative impact during interviews

Thoughts on Starcom? Samsung account

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?

I’m a fairly new grad. Got licensed in January and started working in February. I moved across the state for this job taking my family with me. Now 4 months in it’s such a toxic environment. Unethical, unhealthy. I’m looking to apply to other places. Do I put this company on my resume to show I’ve been working since I graduated or is it worse to show I want to leave after only 4 months? Also, absolutely cannot have them contact my current job or use them as a reference. Put them or no?
