Anyone here switched to fund accounting? I'm thinking of switching from big 4 financial services.

I do fund accounting for an administrator, not the MOST exciting work ever, but it’s way better hours and everyone I work with is really nice so I like it!

My friend did it and hated it. Make sure you know who you’ll be working with, if you’ll have an office, and what the ACTUAL bonus structure is. Not just “you can get up to 20% of your salary but you’ll be lucky to get 2%"

If it’s a huge hedge fund I’ve heard those jobs are legit

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise.

I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA

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?
