Sounds like pretty decent experience. Public experience is overrated but You can always come back to public if you wanted the experience. I’d say take the offer, especially if you’re more focused on having a life.

Do you have other offers lined up?

I’ve applied to so many public firms even smaller ones, no luck 😩

I have audited a dozen or so managers, all in NYC... Having seen a lot of payroll, they have people at this salary level, but I don't think I've seen them really love these people up so I don't know what kind of growth ops you'd really get to see - these teams are so lean you could end up working below somebody who doesn't move - or for a firm that would prefer somebody with more experience at the next level. My suggestion - take the job, take the risk, but make it clear you want to learn as much about the business as you can. Don't work 9-5 if the rest of accounting is working late, stick around and try to help out. Also, learn the funds they manage - the strategy, the investments, how they operate (especially learn fees and waterfalls that impact both the fund and the manco, expense splits etc). This is stuff I'd expect the next level to know and do, that I wouldn't expect you to.

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
