Have you worked you worked at a B4 already? If the salary is acceptable, you should enjoy the free ride. Better to be a great SC than a weak Manager.

Won’t be doable with just 4 YOE as an external hire

I just took that offer. Why, because it’s no hurry, I’ll get there within the year and will have better knowledge of the requirements anyway.

Thanks 😊

Great experience, but I don’t see it happening. Not if they already offered you SC.

I did get an offer as a 3 YOE at KPMG in 2019. It was for SC but mentioned I wouldn’t move since I was going to make M in 4 at D and killed interviews so they offered M. Was hot market area too. But decided to turn it down. So possible but need to be in hot market area and kill the interviews and have the experience to back it up. E.g. already leading teams, managing firm contribs, and possibly have strong pursuit skills

thanks for clarification. Will do some more thinking is this will be enough

Have not worked at b4 before. Also don't see the value in joining for the ride if it doesn't give any benefits other than the b4 name. Which to me isn't that big of a deal anyway....

Mmm.. you seem to have it all figured out. Good for you.

4 yoe, CISSP. Lol.

Having a masters can do that for ya <3

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
