My current job I make 150k plus a 20% bonus and an annual cost of living raise anywhere from 2-3.5%. Have been in my current position about a year. Things have been a bit bumpy (not a me issue) I have a new supervisor and was recently given 7 direct reports (I had zero before). The new position while comes with a significant raise is a move to California. Any thoughts?

I've cleared the interview round in TCS. I have uploaded all the documents and docs got verified also. I don't have any pf account in my first company and they are asking for bank details. I have given the bank details but for the 2 months I didn't get the salary because of health issues, took leaves and after that I served the notice period and got the final settlement salary. I have already told this to HR who was asking for bank details. So, is it going to cause any issues in bgc??

Need advice -
My manager is generally a nice person but he is not super clear about what he wanted us to do. Today he said to me "this is something I had asked you to do bla bla". The thing is I don't have a recollection he ever asked me to do it. He asked me to do things that often led to nowhere or no follow up after submission too. I suspect he doesn't remember who he had talked to and what he had said. Anyone dealing with someone similar and has good advice on how to handle this?

I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do!

I have hit my wall. I cannot do public accounting any longer. I cannot deal with the constant focus on compliance, billable hour and the general unproductive behaviors/mindsets. I remember a day when we were here to help clients. Now I just feel like we are here to bill clients. I want to go help someone build something.
Now I just need to figure out how a director with a tax background can have transferable skills to something else...
Got an offer I am thinking of accepting and waiting for the official letter. Sooooo checked out mentally and cannot wait to break the news to the firm. I am so over it (cont.)

I’m 3+ years to audit partner and weighing options and exhausted by omnipresent inspection risk and how this impacts day to day (and presume it will continue to get worse). Considering the advisory role 1) job security, 2) exit ops, 3) partnership ops. Anyone recently make a similar jump and could share?

How much time do you spend after regular working hours on learning and improving technicals? I feel the most challenging part for this job is not just to complete the client work but also endless learning which requires a lot commitments after work hours.
I’m a new senior manager in tax. Just got promoted this year. How do I know that I’m able to get to partner vs the firm seeing me as a sm only? What can I do to differentiate and also how do I prevent being overworked? I’m scared I would say I’m interested in partner, but then the firm seeing me as a workhorse and not promoting me. I feel like I want to spend my first year becoming more tax technical and building up my management skills. Then consider asking my coach about partner potential.
What are the good exits for Senior Managers? I keep hearing how people leave for 2x their salary.
Any experienced senior managers that have moved between Big 4 firms? Can you speak towards your experience, any struggles, and opportunities in terms of partner promotion? Frankly, EY path to partner seems to be too clouded (long pipeline, no clear direction/path, uncertainty on promotion cycles, etc.) at the moment and I would like to visit all options. Appreciate the input.
I have a new manager working with me who is surprisingly not great at the role. We’re in industry and she’s worked at the company for a long time but in a different capacity. (Cont)
