When thereís actually work in front of you, itís just a waste of time to engage in needless comparisons or ego strokes. Everyone has their different areas of expertise.
You mean 'international' firm

Wouldn't it be far better for you to seek advice from them rather than some random internet forum?

Please stop wasting everyone's time.
Stop being an asshole. It is an honest question. I am not a lawyer and have not been based in SG for 30 years. Moreover, the lawyers I know from these firms (ie. Japan, Indonesia, UK, Korea, Russia) are not familiar with the local landscape in SG. What makes you think I have not reached out to others (eg former classmates) and why can't I seek views from an internet forum. Plus, judging from your statement above, you really don't know how M&A teams are managed.

Go overseas in an attempt to beat the odds rather than stay in Singapore and be part of selection bias.
I still don't think you understand what selection bias is, despite numerous attempts to teach you. Clearly you are untrainable and correctly delisted

(A) Read firm profiles. You will understand that 'diverse' means under-represented.

(B) While you are at it, count Asians.

(C) Let's give you the benefit of the doubt since 'O i know someone from my diverse school who works there'. If this is 5-10%, is it worth 200K? Moron.
Also while you're at it, for every 1 of your friends who are working in these firms, these are token diversity compared to the 10 Oxbridge/London grads who work there.

Looks like you're just bitter at your diversity

Would someone please come back to the main topic?

This forum has been crippled with irrelevant and counterproductive content lately and it shows the heightened bitterness amongst people. Instead of trying to talk people down or force your opinion down othersí throats, letís all just engage in productive discussions regarding salary and career tips so we can all advance in our career paths in our own ways.

Focus on your problems instead of venting your anger out here. I doubt these people spamming the forum with hate messages actually have the goal to advance their careers.

Too bad. Not every Harvard graduate does economics.
If challenge you in Shakespeare and Hamlet, you can?
If challenge you in French and German on top of your second language you can?
If challenge you in Piano at licentiate level you can?
