Audit Bowl

Are there any restrictions of potentially accepting an offer to work for my audit client? It’s a staff level position.

As you are a covered person you should have a “cold period”...but I’ve seen people moving to their clients...

At a staff level you should be fine. I went to a client. I was told if you’re going into a controller or CFO position, you need that the cooling off period. GT did a consultation on the situation to ensure there were no independence issues. Staff level you should be fine. Just be as transparent as possible.

Check your firm policy. It’s most likely prohibited.

Don’t let them scare you. I went to a PCAOB client. It’s fine.

Last May I was volunteered for a stretch role that lasted 10 months, then corona hit so no real downtime after. Now getting volunteered to backfill a SM for an early promo. Like I want it, but I am not sure if I can do 1.5 years in a row of stretch roles without completely burning out :-( I only have been able to take 1 week off over the past year.

After seeing a bunch of the posts on here about some of the exit opportunities people here have posted, I started applying a couple months ago. I just got an offer that's a little under 3x my current comp... And I'm totally speechless. Thank you to everyone here for motivating me to look for that next opportunity!!!

So I’ve been working for a full service marketing agency for 5 years and absolutely love the work that I’ve done while working there. However, my salary is not where it should be. I’ve asked for raises and have gotten them but it’s still under 60k 🙂 not acceptable. The company I work for is very small so I understand why I can’t be where I should be. I love working with my co workers and im afraid leaving a team I’ve grown with to start a new job. Not sure why I feel so guilty about this
