Any advice on moving jobs within WPP? I found a position that’s perfect for me, but unsure if it’s worth the politics. Could my current agency stop me from leaving? Could I get a salary bump if the role is for the next level up?

There are rules in the employee handbook. Typically HR, once you've indicated your interest, will grant one informational interview without you deckaring to your manager. When it gets more serious you need to tell your current agency. Nothing is guranteed of course and things could get awkward. I did it it successfully a couple of years ago. Well worth the politics but it definitely got tricky. Do NOT expect a salary increase. It really depends on agencies.

I just came from there. Run for the hills!

Ha! Believe me, I know. At a WPP agency currently - just desperate enough to move to try another one. Given the economy, limited options.

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?
