I was a financial analyst at a major company before I went into public. You don't need any big 4 experience whatsoever. Just apply. There's more money in cpa work though.

Does it make you look bad if you say no when asked if you have any other offers during the interview process? I realize it has to do with how fast the company needs to move.
