Not the same as Big 4.

Nice size firm as well

Tell them $95k or you won't leave B4

^lol 95k seems high regardless of market. If you're miserable but you want to stay in public accounting, try it out. If you're miserable but you want to go into industry, you might as well stick it out six months so you can say you worked at PwC for two years

I know one guy who works at CLA (SM or Director). He was awesome.

What does dipping mean? 🤔

Going down? As in it's not as prestigious as OP's current firm?

Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
