Boutique or big 4?

I'm currently an ops manager at a big 4 in London and received an offer from a small boutique firm with 25-30% pay rise.

I'm also in the process with Accenture but I feel like I'm not sure if I'd jump just for the money but also change in environment.

Has anyone gotten a CPA license in one state that wasn’t a 150-hour requirement and gotten reciprocity in another? I got my CPA 20 years ago, prior to 150-hour.

Is this possible? I cannot imagine having to go back to school (as much as that sounds fun, my family wouldn’t have it). Thoughts??

It feels like everyone has gotten so down on advertising. You can still make great work for great brands at great agencies. You can still do things you’re proud of. And fill your portfolios with beautiful things. And have great impact. And collect shiny awards and enjoy great after parties after it. And see your commercials on TV during the Super Bowl. It’s still a great way to make a living if done right. And craft services is still tasty. You just have to make the right career moves.
