Literally feel stuck without my CPA! I currently work as corporate accountant and have 3 years of public accounting experience specializing in governmental and not-for-profit accounting.
Currently a senior accountant at a small company doing the monthly close financial process. Got two offers, one as a senior cost accountant and one as a senior financial analyst. Both similar comp and at great companies that have 10,000 or more employees. I’ve been wanting to get experience in both cost accounting and financial analysis.
Which role would be the smartest move based off the titles?
Is it unusual to transfer from FDD to a senior accountant role? Not sure if jumping from deal to deal is right for me..
Hey all- I feel like I have always seen conflicted suggestions on when to leave and what position to leave for. I am an S2 (manager promo would be next year) making 80k in MCOL in audit. I have an offer for a senior accountant position with equity grant at hire and 100k base, no annual bonus. I feel like the base increase is more than I thought I could get, but is that true? Do I need to look for a different position in industry, or do I need to stay until manager? Any thoughts much appreciated

Also has anyone left as a senior in PA to senior accountant in industry and still gotten into a manager type role within 1-2 years? People always make it seem like the path of going to senior accountant takes many years to move on to the next level
I’ve been looking for a senior accountant (industry role) for a few months now, with not much luck. Most of the applications we receive are for candidates with much more experience than what is required. I was expecting to see a lot of Big4 or mid-tier seniors or associates that are looking to move to industry, especially since the news lately is that PA firms are experiencing attrition at those levels. We’re offering competitive pay and great benefits. What gives?
I have a company where I applied to a Senior Accountant role (3-4 weeks ago). I didn't hear back at all. But they just dropped a staff accountant role. I like the company and what they are doing.
Would it be uncouth for me to apply for the staff position too? Or is that a no-no? I feel like the cover letter would write itself - I like you enough to take a title cut. It helps they included the salary, and the staff salary is lateral to my current role.
We’re hiring a senior accountant at the tech start up I work at. Most of the people applying have financial services or real estate backgrounds… I’m a little worried about those skills translating to a tech company. I was never in FSI so I’m not sure if areas like rev rec, PPE, capitalized software, etc get much exposure. Thoughts on if this type of background could translate well?

I asked for more money for a senior accountant role and have received a lot of push back. I have been firm with my decision and the recruiter called me today to set up an interview with the CFO. And then threw in the fun fact that there are two other applicants that are willing to take the money offered. Are recruiters always this annoying?

This might have been already asked so apologies in advance, but has anyone gone back to public/advisory from industry? I know there are a lot of boomerangs out there but I mean more specifically advisory or due diligence? Currently in Assurance and want to experience private industry as either a Senior Accountant or SEC reporting role but don’t want to shut myself from these other opportunities? Or should I persue advisory first and then private accounting if it doesn’t seem like a good fit?
Any recommendations on how to present myself as more qualified candidate for a Senior Accountant role as someone who has only finished one busy season? A former manager I worked with is referring/vouching for me pretty hard but I’m not sure I’m qualified.
Hi Fishes! What has been your experience going from an associate position to a senior accountant position outside the firm? I’m currently an AWM Tax Associate with 1.5 years experience. TIA!!
Kind of regret going into accounting/audit lol. Was anyone else told “accounting can do finance but finance can’t do accounting.” I was under the impression that transitioning to finance would be easy, but all the exit ops I see are senior accountant, internal audit, accounting advisory, etc.
Interviewed and received an offer for regular analyst role and am an S2 at big4 - how do you word an email asking about the possibility to join as senior accountant? Along with negotiating pay
I’m stuck in career and need some advice for what to do next. I have a background in SALT where I did compliance, state tax notices, fin 48 calcs, and a little bit of restructuring. I was fortunate to land a role as a senior accountant but I don’t want to be a controller. So I’m thinking should I just go back to tax (I feel like I left because I wasn’t getting the proper training and mentor ship to succeed in the career). I’m also thinking should I pursue my MBA and switch over to finance to ...

What are exit opportunities like when you work in Accounting Advisory in a big 4? I would like to put myself on a path to one day become a senior accountant at Google or similar tech company, more so on the revenue recognition side. Would transferring from Audit to Accounting Advisory help me?
Guys I have a second round interview with an accounting manager at my dream job. Senior Accountant role at a Tech company. I have all weekend to prep. How should I approach this prep? Please help! It’s a pre-IPO company and so there are no public 10-K I can review. Should I review the STAR method? Any advice is welcome. I will do everything in my power to be prepared. Please advise. 🖤
Currently an A3 in assurance. I have two job offers: senior financial analyst (FP&A role) and senior accountant. Similar pay (a little over 40% raise), similar benefits. Will taking one of the offers limit me to just those types of roles going forward or would there still be an opportunity to do the other later on?
Staff 2 here - Opinions on leaving for a Gl Revenue Accountant vs Senior accountant position?
I want to leave public as a senior, but can’t find anything I’m interested in. I’ve been applying;g for manager and assistant controller roles, which has been really difficult. But I don’t really want a senior accountant role. I was thinking FP and A is a good choice. I’m looking for something that has good career progression and a better WLB balance, pay isn’t so important to me. Has anyone else dealt with this? Advice would be greatly appreciated.

How are exit ops from RSM/BDO vs big 4 in audit? If I wanted to jump to senior accountant at a large private company/publicly traded, will I have a harder time coming out of a mid tier?

What would you do?
Is there a salary difference between a Senior Financial Analyst, FP&A and a Senior Accountant? Assuming you have the same amount of accounting experience when applying for each position.
I would like to be a controller someday in financial services. Am a senior in big four audit with 4 years experience and CPA. I can either grind it out for two years to make manager, or I can leave for a senior accountant role in a fund and get familiar with the operations and closings and jump. I’m feeling burnt out, but I worry if I leave now I’ll be set back. Which is the better path? Any advice would be much appreciated, especially as I know there can be a lot of different right answers.
Hi! I’ve been thinking about two possible paths to making it to a controller one day in financial services.
Path one: stay until manager in big four audit and leave for a lateral position, only have audit exp
Path two: leave as a senior associate and spend two to three years as a senior accountant in private to get familiar with operations and the close process, then jump again for a promotion. Have a mix of audit and operational and accounting exp, but no title
Which path would be better?

Anyone ever go through 6+ grueling hours of amazing, positive interviews only to be told that you don’t have enough of one very specific type of experience that is clearly listed in your resume and could have been filtered out before proceeding? Before today me neither. I’m still in a bit of shock over the whole thing. The hiring manager said I’d be perfect and all the other interviews were just a formality. Apparently not!

How closely do Amazon recruiters review a candidate's LinkedIn profile before making contact? I was contacted about an SM role for which I have great transferable skills, but would def be a new role. I've interviewed for a diff role at HQ2 that perfectly w my bkgd; they lost interest when they realized I wasn't local. This recruiter mentioned relo pkg upfront. Guess I'm asking: does this sound like a recruiter just sending an email blast or can I trust they've done some due diligence?
