I am transitioning to an operational type analyst soon. I was told that my Big 4 experience with work ethic, critical thinking and excel skills would be enough to get a grip on things. I'm excited to make the change!

I decided I didn't want to do accounting forever, so I figured it was best to get out sooner rather than later. I do think that if I stayed any longer I might have been "over qualified" or "too specialized" to get into the position. I'm at just over a year, too

Thanks EY2! I do believe that the soft skills I gained at b4 is transferable to many other entry level position as I just started my 2nd year. However it seems like not that easy to make the switch

Fuck. You got out at the right time ^ I'm at 2 years and now I either wait a year for the 3-5 year jobs or leave and start over at entry level

Pwc2 what kind of positions would you like to pursue?

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

Accepted an offer to join a small mom and pop firm (~50 ppl) there’s ex big 4 there, I’ll be running implementations as a Director. At a tier 2 firm now (going on 4 years) only a small pay bump but better title. TC could be much higher as they claim to pay a high bonus. Don’t start until end of July, and haven’t yet put in my two weeks. Sort of regretting the decision to leave. Feels like this would prevent me from getting to big 4, MBB or similar sized firm later down the road. Thoughts?
