Any thoughts on Big 4 international tax advisory role vs in-house tax counsel role at F100? I am currently happy at big4 but worried about career progression at big4 as I probably will hv the technical skills but not the people skills/ sales skills to make partner. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If technical is your thing and you hate sales, in house counsel all the way and it is a no brainer.

If you only want to work on technical, join a Big4 national office.

Back in a practice office, making director does not require a substantial amount of selling if you team up with a partner that has a robust client portfolio. S/he will feed you work and have you manger certain accounts.

Thank you, I am hesitant to leave big4 b/c I hv great relationships and enjoy the work (currently a first yr mgr with not too much client interaction at the moment). Do you hv any thoughts on director roles at big4s? Is it a lot easier to make than it is to make partner for those who don’t want to sell? Also any thoughts on salary at F100? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of info on those roles

I do not, but I do know even at the SM level sales is really important in PA. I worked in industry for a number of years and can tell you that that is the only place where you can legitimately get a 100% technical only type of environment. You don’t even have to deal with engagement letters and the billable hour there!

In house has politics too. You can’t really avoid this.

Industry vets - in your experience how recession proof is insurance? I was not yet in the job market last recession but I watched my mom get laid off and struggle to find employment during that time for the next 1.5 years. I was wanting to hit the job market towards the end of this year, but now I worry that if I do move companies, the recession could put me in position of last one hired first one fired. Is it better to stay put?
