For big 4 M and above. Reached out to independence compliance desk about reporting cryptos exchange accounts and here is exact language for response: "as of now bjtcoins or other cryptocurrencies are not reportable l. Bitcoin wallets will be reportable in the future but that is also not in effect yet. We have not received information on when these changes will be taking place. For the short term, you do not need to worry about reporting them."
Need some advice regarding an offer I received. I’m approaching the one year mark in audit (October). I received a $65k accounting job offer in MCOL city with a tech company. The job will be a mix of accounting, budgeting/forecasting, and other ad hoc reporting. Does this sound like a good opportunity given my experience and background (Big 4, reputable university)?

How much all in can Big 4 MDs and Partners expect after 5 yrs at the level? Director at PwC at the cusp of moving to the next level. Evaluating if I should stay in consulting vs. moving to industry.

Is there any B4 firm(except KPMG) that hire experienced associate in FDD? I am looking around the web and most seems to be looking for only seniors. (PwC does but practically Senior cuz they require 2 years of experience)
So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?
Curious - in industry do a lot of companies have internal consulting groups that function like a big 4 would? Analyzing and implementing regulatory, strategic or other transformational initiatives?
