Has anyone taken on a role at a smaller CPA firm outside regional/big 4 tax to get a better work life balance and less stress. Currently 10 years into my career with a family. Willing to take a small pay cut to gain a better life. What roles should I look for as a tax senior manager?

l'm tempted to consider a call center role as I'm at wits end on my crappy Technology delivery project with toxic management whipping us all day with unreasonable timelines. At least the cc work is limited to a 9-5 schedule right? And you are there to guide them on the unemployment process and FAQ's? Seems like a good alternative to collect a 6-figure paycheck doing simple support with minimal training and reading from a script? Do other consulting firms do call center for state unemployment?

If you switch between big 4, do you get blacklisted from the big 4 you left? Say you left as an senior for a manager position. Would you be eligible for rehire as director 3-4 years later at your original firm? Do your previous colleagues feel like you’re a sell out? Do people judge you or feel like you’ve abandoned the firm? Deciding if I should jump ship after 2 years for title and salary bump. Thanks!

I was just promoted to senior. I would like to leave public after obtaining my CPA/having a busy season as a senior under my belt. PA wrecks havoc on my anxiety and I don’t know how long I can realistically last in this position. This might be horrible to say but I would honestly love a job with structured hours (ie just the basic 9-5, maybe some overtime here and there but not the norm/expected) and the work is also very boring/similar day to day. Can anyone recommend positions that fit this?

How much does timing matter when someone refers you to a FAANG role? Have contacts willing refer me but some of the postings I’m interested in seem old (week+). Not sure if I should ask them to refer me now or wait a bit for something new to come up, to avoid having to bug them multiple times. I’m looking at Product Manager roles, which I see get posted fairly frequently.

Everytime there is an opportunity to lead, my boss always assigns it to everybody in my position but me. I feel down, like is something wrong with me? What can I do?
