I left and came back. It's worth it to stay until manager.

It's worth it to have manager experience. Don't just leave right after you get promoted.

Yes, I have. It's a different level of offers you get. I left as a manager 1 and was a controller for a small public company (still large accelerated filer). People that I knew in the same small office that left as seniors moved into senior accountant roles. I got the sense, both when I was in industry and since coming back, that it is much harder to move out of a senior accountant role and into a higher visibility position. Just my two cents.

The experience is what matters more than title. Wherever you go next, they will evaluate you on your experience, not previous titles.

Stay to manager, it's worth it.

You should ask people that have left public, they would probably know better

I'm getting promoted to Manager 1 on 10/1 but I think I'll get an offer for director of acct + fin at a start up in the next week. In a good spot internally but feel like it would be dumb not to take this for 2/3 years; can always go back to public. High ratings in senior years. I'd rather go partner than CFO long term. Worth it for exp? Need sanity check. Boss would be CEO.

EY 1 - I'm entering my second year as a senior in a smaller market. Less jobs I can jump to the longer I stay if I want to stay in town. I want to stay till manager but almost feel compelled to leave based on the geography. Have you found that, regardless, the manager experience at big 4 is intrinsically with it?

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?

Best way to ask for raise without making it seem like an ultimatum, don't have any offers lined up / haven't put in any substantial effort to get offers.
