I am about to be promoted to senior at a PA firm: is it a step down to take an industry staff accountant role? I don't know how I feel about being a 'staff when I worked hard to get that senior title.

I’m considering leaving PA for a senior accountant position at a Fortune 500 company. If I do this will I essentially kill my opportunities of getting into an M7 mba program? My original plan was to go audit->TAS->mba because m7 rarely takes you from audit. I’m also making peanuts rn and can make considerable more in a senior accountant position. Does my plan make sense?

I am an A2 soon to be S1 and I really don’t want to be in PA anymore and don’t care about job titles really. Is it dumb to take a position in industry as a staff accountant

I have a client who keeps making up my skill set. I was referred to as an Accountant and SQL expert this week. I am neither and they were never discussed or part of the role description...

Is a senior accountant really a dead end exit role? I feel like im learning very little in auditing:

Are you more likely to be audited by IRS if you file your own income taxes? Or is the probability the same as hiring an accountant to do them?

What levels are there in the Industry Tax? Is there a staff below senior accountant role in Industry who would do almost all of the prep work and senior would spend time on reviewing like in PA?

What does a senior accountant in industry do? I’m familiar with the responsibilities in the senior role in public, but don’t really have a clue on the industry side what the job entails.

Long shot but has anyone switched to video gaming industry from PA. I saw a listing for a rev rec accountant at Nintendo but tbh would really want to switch to a BA or FA position. Not sure how feasible this is

Moving from PA to Industry Tax at Senior Accountant role, should I expect to be preparing large spreadsheets? PA always has staff doing more prep work while senior taking care of review. Is it same in Industry?

I’ve been working in personal tax ever since joining a public firm. When I look at exit opportunities in industry, all of them required full cycle accounting. I’m interested in going the controller route (grow within a company kinda thing) so I looked at my network and connected with a smaller public accounting firm where I could work as a senior accountant doing reviews and NTRs. Would this experience get me full cycle accounting knowledge?

Anyone had experience leaving for an industry accounting role such as a senior inventor accountant or senior ppe accountant? Are you most likely stuck in that area for future promotions or new jobs?

I have a modeling test on Wednesday with a solar farm developer. On the phone interview that proceeded this, the CFO mentioned that these pro forma solar farm models are more nuanced than most. He mentioned bonus depreciation and tax credits among other things. Are there any good resources that I can use to learn about solar farm/renewable energy modeling? Also any general tips or things I should be aware of. If anyone could share a model too that would be awesome! Thanks for the help.

Or if it all becomes all online. It’s interesting to think about obviously not having a way to know!
