Currently B4 tax M2 in the greater Seattle area speaking to a recruiter about opportunities. The recruiter keeps telling me with my YOE (just over 6 years) I should be looking at base of 130k in response to my original 150 - 170k. Should I aim lower? Not sure about the Seattle market.
Same old discussion but would like a fresh perspective as I am having a career crisis. I started my career at a B4 tax financial services doing mostly federal compliance. At a manager level for various reasons, I switched over to another B4 same group. It's been a couple months and I am having hard time fitting in mostly due to my lack of desire to learn new system, client and etc. I suspect because I am severely burnt out even though I took some break before staring at this firm.

I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️

Hi All, I'm a big 4 first year senior associate, and I have the opportunity to move to a F500 Financial analyst position. Anyone make a similar move, did you regret it, or was it a great decision? I honestly just don't feel audit is the right path for me, and I don't really care about being a CFO/Controller. Just want semi interesting work, better wlb, and decent pay.
When will remaining B4, and mid sized follow suit?

Senior associate in the big 4 currently working on huge finance transformation project. This has given me a ton of stakeholder management experience and really put me in the deep end in terms of workload and client engagement. My question is, what's the best way to pivot for a relaxed high paying industry role?
