An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?

It did not look bad really. I guess my question are you testing SOX control compliance in your new role? I am curious how you had the qualifications as tax manager?

Author, i would say go for it since you have extensive tax background worse comes to worse and you end up leaving, You can always come back to Tax. I think with Audit experience you can pivot into a lot of different roles if you ever got bored or wanna try something different.

like

ETA: need more info, but it sounds like the internal audit and SOX are outsourced to third party. So maybe just managing them and reporting to audit committee.

Go if you want fully remote, the pay increase differential would likely close quickly if you do not leave.

I feel like I’m on the outside looking in and I don’t like what I see. I haven’t returned to teaching this year because I was overwhelmed by what was being asked of us and chose to use all of my sick time instead. From this perspective, I see teachers being used and abused. I see teachers asking questions about situations that should never be tolerated. We are the professionals. Why are we allowing this? It’s the Stockholm Syndrome for education. We provide a valuable service. Remember that.

I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
