I was let go back in April and I was offered a role recently for a Senior Auditor at a midsize firm for $70,000 in California. It’s a $20,000 pay cut from my last role. Is it worth it

For Audit folks: Curious. Would you rather take 1. Internal transfer to Accounting Advisory 2. Senior Internal Auditor at a tech company For 2, your role is Operational audit with SOX support where needed + internal investigations where applicable.

Whats up with DC these days? Just a lonely associate auditor but can swing into feds with the masters and Vet Preference. Read the market is great for accountants but exit opportunities outside of DC can be lacking. Partner just got offered 6 figures so not super uptight on pay, but we’d only be looking at a couple of years out there.

What are my exit opportunities for Risk Advisory? I have all public clients and am essentially an IT Auditor, weird thing is I actually love what I do. I just want to do it for a company, get off at 5, and no travel. Also, when should I be starting to look for exit opportunities? I only have one year under my belt, currently a Consultant 2.
