How much smarter do you have to be to make a jump from a firm like BDO, RSM, GT to Big4? I’m considering a move but I have a fear that I’m inadequate.

First year in Big 4 tax here. I’ve come to realize already I’d rather do something in Finance with my life. Thoughts on if I finish out my year in tax, do one year of audit, and look for exit ops after 2 years at Big 4, 1 year of both tax and audit? Would that make me well rounded in say FP&A or corporate finance? I’m not interested in IB, PE or any of the super big ticket fields. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

If they do not budge on the base salary what else can I negotiate on? Thank you all for your help in advance.
