Currently a first year staff in Risk Advisory in a Mid-Tier Firm hoping to move to Big 4 for either Risk or Cyber. When would be the most appropriate time to make the change? I heard that Senior Staff in mid-tier would most likely be hired as an “Experienced Hire” in Big 4. So would it be smarter to make the move now as a first year staff since I’ll be considered Experienced Hire anyway?

My new manager has treated me very poorly and blocking me from progression (promotion). I have worked at the company for near 5 years and am planning my exit. I took a job starting Nov 14. Is it unprofessional to give less than two weeks notice? I would be lying if I said I didn't want to put the under a bit of pressure by leaving unexpectedly.
