Has anyone made a switch out of accounting and more info with an FPA (financial analyst) or operations role? I would imagine it can’t be too hard to leverage an accounting background to do this. I never want to deal with SOX controls again, and continue getting stuck on awful projects within Deloitte advisory. Feeling silo’d and looking for an out. Away from accounting and into FPA or Operations.

My mentor suggested that I do a little more homework by using an org I am in to make sure the change will be an improvement and to know what to ask for in interviews if I decide to start looking around.
