I hear that Watson groups are the only ones you want to be there right now. They're investing heavily in it, but GBS budgets are tight.

They are undergoing a huge transformation. Their tech consulting business is growing leaps and bounds.

When should a Sr Manager (tax) who is not interested in Partner / Director at a Big 4 jump to industry?

How to go about leaving tax for a financial analyst/finance/general accounting role?

Been in tax for 5 years now, one year at Big 4. Really wanting to leave tax and get away from “tax season”. Recruiters push to stay in tax because that’s where I will get the most interest but I’ve made it clear I don’t want to be in tax. Only way I’ll stay in tax if it’s not stressful (I want to be able to take pto during tax season , etc). Don’t want to stay in PA. Preferably F500. Not having much luck.

How would you feel when your manager hires someone who is in the same age as you, with a cpa and had worked in big 4 before. Meanwhile you don’t have any PA experience and only half way through cpa.

When I first started at my current firm, my boss was very clear that I had complete responsibility for staffing, managing, and billing my assigned cases. I had no experience in our field (bad faith) and I took it pretty hard and put a ton of pressure on myself to deliver. I am now contemplating leaving because I am seeing that the firm has an attrition problem and I’m being tapped to handle abandoned cases. Is this a good reason to leave?
