Has anyone had experience going from audit senior to a financial analyst type role? Been in audit for 3 years. I think I know I don’t want to be an accounting manager or controller. Glad I have the opportunity to learn in my current role but trying to think about next steps in my career. Any info /advice would be greatly appreciated!

Are you at all interested in FDD?

Financial analyst is sometimes really just senior accountant. Make sure you ask questions about the specifics of the job. The best way to get an idea if you would like it is to talk to your potential boss, coworkers, and direct reports to get an understanding of what a normal day & a normal year look like.

I started as OM for this amazing non-profit in April 2021 and I'm starting to regret it. The ED is toxic AF and staff is afraid to speak up which puts me in the middle of some very uncomfortable situations. I do enjoy the work when there is no drama, however it is starting to weigh on me. I've also spoken to the ED about what needs to change and negative feedback, however it keeps happening. Do I start looking for another role ASAP? or ride it out until I decide in my own time what is next?

I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.
