Exit opportunities for Staff 2? How are government accounting positions?

Working for the government will be the easiest job you've ever had. You will also have zero upward mobility. If a stable schedule and a 100% safe for life paycheck are what you want, go for it.

You'll also have the "protection" and work limitations of a union. One thing that surprised me about government was the cutthroat environment. There are fewer opportunities for upward mobility, so people can get pretty nasty. That's also why there are a lot of PhDs in government; they get it through a PhD mill for the extra promotion points. You'll love it!

Federal?

Government jobs have upward mobility if you want it, but you’ll typically progress slower than in public accounting.

But I agree: easy/boring.

My client provides maybe a quarter of my work and I am regularly adverse to various sectors/businesses of the new company for my big client and a few other clients. This feels like a no go.

My firm normally has annual review meetings in August and pay raises take effect on October 1st. On a call held in early September they said the meetings would actually take place at the end of September. Next, there was a zoom call last week in which management did not mention reviews at all until someone asked when they will be, and they said “soon”. Thoughts?
