(Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...

Asking for a friend.. Say you left an audit firm and entirely by chance you ended up working for an audit client's company (a Big 4 firm in this case), but for a different audit team. Is there anything you need to worry about for independence rules?
Non-MBA Senior associate that got manager promo at big four but also a Sr Program Manager at Amazon. Amazon is still offering better pay even with the manager promo but I have built a strong brand at my consulting firm and have been getting promoted almost every year. Not sure if I should leave knowing I am on partner track and go to Amazon and work hard again to build such a strong brand there too. What do you guys think? I like and am comfortable at my current firm but money wise I’m not happy
