I think you’re undervaluing yourself. Industry would jump to bring you in at a lateral rank. You’re experience though should demand a premium. Shoot for a Senior Manager or Director position in industry

I left EY as a manager for a CPA firm that pays base salary >20% above big 4. We get overtime if we work over 45 hours a week, travel bonuses up to 25% of base salary if we travel, profit sharing since there aren't a million partners to take all of the profits, and you get 3% of the client fees if you're on a client longer than 3 months. Plus, audit is optional. You can work in M&A, CFO advisory, treasury, reporting, etc. I'd never have those experiences staying at EY. Oh, and our trainings are in Vegas, not Secaucus.

We both currently max out our 401k and Roth every year and also invest 1k every month in brokerage. 30k in 529 for 1 kid - hopefully will not need much more. 4 mths expenses in cash. I would love to retire in 7 yrs at 55. SO wants to work until 62. So you think we have enough to retire?
