Yeah, I came into EY with experience as a controller for a $6M start-up while going through my grad program. The company hiring me is small, needing a one-man finance team. I went big 4 to get some resume experience and CPA

I'm not sure anyone is ever truly qualified for a job though, but I would love the challenge, especially if it is paying so well

I think most people use big 4 and or public accounting as a stepping stone; if the job is not too far of a reach from your current experience and seems like it fulfills your long term goals, I'd say go for it!

Is there anything illegal about this new job? If not I'm not sure why this is even a question.

Well. Probably. If you've stuck around long enough to get your CPA. If you've also made a good impression you can always go back to public. Just kinda depends whether you want to go back to industry where you only have one client. I've done both and prefer a professional services firm. Having a hand in building a company can be great though if you're working with the right team.

There were a lot of times I felt like he probably does have feelings for me but I always tried to ignore it or forget about it because I was too into my now husband.
