Will experience in a big 4 make a difference even if it's just 1 year? I got an offer from another firm (top 10) and it's in my hometown with classmates that I know, industries that interest me and I really want to go. I was wondering if with that just one year of experience in a big 4, going to another top firm (but not big 4) and staying until manager. Will I still have a shot of becoming a CFO or comptroller for a big company in the future? Thanks in advance for all the feedback.
