So I got into grad school starting fall ‘20. Plan on quitting in August. Should I wait until bonus decision (6/30) is made to notify firm? Will they withhold bonus if I tell them prior?

Found a way out of public and have an industry IA independent contributor role offer. 14% pay bump but no signing bonus. Won’t match 401k until 1 year completion. (Continued)

How long did it take you before you realized PA (Tax) wasn’t for you? Did you find an opportunity in industry? How hard was the switch from PA tax to in-house industry? I’m looking for some hope here

NYC folks. What would be the ballpark (target salary) for some with little over 2 years of experience plus one year of industry? I am looking into a senior role with either PE firm or Technology firm.
