I usually stay at Ws (and refuse to go to age appropriate hotels - I want to stay young forever) and my wife instead says "You smell weird, what is this glitter? Have you been to a strip club with the team again?"

No true consultant truly “parties”. A true consultants probably working overtime trying to get a deliverable done because they had too many meetings on their calendar to work on it earlier

If these insecure overachievers consider their stress overly crushing, then they have probably lived a very sheltered life.

Hey guys,
I’m currently a quality control analyst in the biopharma/gene therapy field making 72k base in the Houston area. I’ve been working here for 2 years and my company is well established and the job is easy, but I honestly just want higher pay. I see companies (smaller and larger) that potentially can give me that but would it be worth it? I’m having a hard time finding out what opportunities/paths I can take and what amount of $ would be worth moving jobs for. Any insight is appreciated!

Which offer should I accept? Currently staff 2 at big 4 in Tax with CPA license. I want to leave tax ASAP. Both are public companies +1B in revenue and same salary. Offer 1 - staff revenue accountant so reading contracts, speaking with the sales team and legal team, a lot of work at the end of the months to close books and reconcile transactions to make sure we are ASC 606 compliant. This track usually leads to director of revenue. Offer 2 - internal audit staff so SOX and compliance projects.
