Planing on moving to NYC in the next 3 years with my husband. Been looking at potential jobs that I may be interested in for when the time comes and a lot of the ones I’m interested in says “big four experience preferred.” I work for a regional PA firm and wanted to see what everyone’s thoughts are. If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?

How do I lead an engagement myself from start to finish? I’m up for promotion to Senior I and if someone put me on a smaller client and expected me to complete everything myself and to reach out if I had any questions I’m not sure where to begin.

Been on the bench for ~8 weeks now, only been doing some BD work and online CPE type stuff (all non chargeable). My utilization has tanked and I’m really starting to worry. Trying to stay as relevant as possible and trying not to worry about what I can’t control, but I’m really starting to stress about getting laid off.

Anyone else pondering a career switch out of accounting/finance during this economy? Sounds stupid to give up a stable career to change fields, but don’t want any regrets.

Anyone have any personal insight to EYs global compliance and reporting in Chicago is like (actually day to day, group, pay, etc)? Says the role involves “global tax project management” I’ll do a pre interview to figure out exactly what it entails but was hoping for some personal insight beforehand. I’m a senior (w/JD not sure it matters) in big4 SALT group and the idea of never having to do compliance was a huge draw but I do enjoy SALT consulting.

Everyone with no work is on the bench and bored. Everyone with work is working busy season hours and burnt out. Why do companies not try to smooth the difference?!
