Honestly, if you're going to leave, why leave for the exact same Hell and lose all your contacts and reputation at the same time. They're likely as understaffed and overworked as the rest of the big4 and just hoping to pick up more staff on another company's training dime.

pay will be good this year but you'll have a much lower raise when you hit manager since everyone gets baselined. if you don't care about that, go for it.

Does you or your new firm know something that your old firm doesn’t that justifies the higher level and higher comp. If they are using the level and pay to attract you, you run the real risk that you will stumble against your new peers and they are more likely to blame you for your struggles than blame themselves for their hiring decision.

Why

You mean why it wasn’t considered? I guess it was international plus I changed practice so I was ok with working from down up and making sure I learn the ropes

Interesting perspective! I have 2 years international experience with another big 4 (this will be my 3rd) that was not previously considered plus I always act up and know the job. There’s Always learning/improvement points but I don’t see anything too great not to surmount

I got some good news that one of the accounting firms I associate with is starting hiring again for September 2020. If you have 3+ busy seasons with a Big 8 firm and were laid off or looking for work, feel free to message me for more details. I am paid for referrals, but I don't need the money so no hard sells😋 hoping to help our laid off accounting people. Admins feel free to delete it not appropriate.

Is it too late to get a referral for full time after ugrad? I’m very interested but have only been networking with a few T2 and T3 firms.
